I bought a Marlin 336 in 44 Mag, it's sweet. Only prob the guy who had it painted the furniture black. He was in a gun club & he said they do all their guns that way. It's no rattle can job & it looks great but I'd like to see the walnut again. Any suggestions on stripping & refinishing? Or could I buy replacements reasonable? Here's some pics, like I said its sweet, even got the X'S Ghost Ring Lever rail. Thanks, RH

Paint stripper should work without damaging the wood. Then, clean, stain, and tru oil.

Yup. And an old tooth brush will help get the paint out of the checkering.

There's one called gun stock, I believe. It gives that reddish color that you see on most stocks.

I would try just finishing the bare wood with tung oil. It will bring out the natural color of the walnut and if you don't like it, you can always go darker.

Also, any idea what kind of paint it is? Some of the new paints can be a real bear to strip, especially in the checkering.

I wish I knew the type of paint. It's a really slick job, flat but glossy & almost has a little texture.

Is the barrel channel painted? If so, you could try a little stripper in there and see how hard it might be to strip?
