Has anyone tried to Duracoat a military Mosin Nagant stock? I'm wondering if the cosmoline sweating out will adversely affect, or cause the finish to chip and flake.
From what I understand about the properties of cosmoline, it's impossible to get all of it out of porous materials like wood. That's why I asked the question. I'd love to take a military configuration M44 and have it Duracoated either coyote brown or in an urban camo, but obviously I don't want to spend that much money if it's not going to last.If you are going to Duracoat wood you need to get all the grease and oil out of the wood first.
