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.

If your worried you could sand it down and primer it.

If you are going to Duracoat wood you need to get all the grease and oil out of the wood first.

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.

Your surface has to be prestine clean in order for the DuraCoat to 'stick'

You could sand it down and use some sort of a filler, then duracoat it, that could theoretically work.

I wouldn't mess with it on a mosin stock. I would sand down the stock, steam out the dents, and then finish it in an oil finish. I would pick up one of those synthetic montecarlo stocks and refinish it how you want.
