Prepping and painting a stock

Ive got a Factory rifle stock that needs to be painted. My question is mainly about prepping the stock, the stock has a real glossy finish.. what's the best way to get this paint off? I figure my options are sanding or paint thinner? What do you guys do? I know some just leave the paint on and paint over but im concerned the glossy paint wont let the new paint stick too well... Thanks for you help

Re: Prepping and painting a stock

It depends somewhat on the paint. Some respond better to certain strippers than others, so you may need to try a couple different products to find the most effective one. I've used DuraCoat on rifle stocks and found CitriStrip a pretty good stripper for it. Acetone works well too, but I don't want to pour the used contents down the drain. Whatever you find works best for the paint on your stock, you'll still need a small brush to scrub the corners and hard to reach places.
