    How do I get this end cap off this 700 remington stock? Do I want to take it off to refinish the stock?

    You don't have to take it off to re finish the stock as long as you don't let any paint
    stripper get on it.It is some kind of plastic and does not react well to solvents.

    Mask it off real good and once you remove all of the old finish remove the tape and
    sand the tip with very fine steel wool and buff to bring back the shine.

    If it is a nice piece of wood I like to use tongue oil or birchwood casey true oil and
    xxxx fine steel wool to hand rub the finish on .It takes 6 to 8 applications to get a
    really nice hand rubbed Finnish but it is worth it.
