It is important for your GRS laminate stock to be maintained properly with GRS oil to protect the wood in the laminate. The Laminate we use is from Birch wood and like all other wood materials they need to be oiled regularly to prevent moisture from entering the material. We recommend to apply oil 2-3 times a season depending on how much you use it in rainy conditions. If you are using your rifle stock in very dry conditions it is also very important to oil the stock to keep it flexible, if the stock is completely dry it becomes very brittle and it can as a result crack or split. (not covered by the warranty) We can clearly see and measure damages from such cases.
please follow this procedure when applying oil to the GRS stock.
Use latex or Nitrile Gloves To protect your hands, the oil contains wax and can be tricky to get off.
- REMOVE THE BOLT FROM THE RIFLE AND CHECK THAT IT IS EMPTY OF AMMUNITION!
- You will get the best result if you remove the action and barrel form the rifle stock.
- Make sure your stock is dry and clean. If the stock is wet, the moist will be locked inside the stock under the protective layer of oil, this can damage the laminate causing it to de laminate.
- Shake the bottle of oil for two minutes, there is wax in the oil and this has to be mixed good to obtain best results.
- Apply a thin even layer ok of oil, let it soak for two minutes, if areas sucks up all the oil apply more.
- Wipe off excess oil and make sure to remove any drops, they will harden in the curing process.
- Burn the rags. If left in a rolled up ball they can selfignite!!
- Let the stock dry in room temperature for 12 hours@ 20*C before applying layer no two.
- To obtain the best result use sandpaper between layers, we recommend using 220-320 grained soft paper.
- Two layers are usually enough.
GRS MAINTENANCE OIL IS BASED ON LINSEED OIL. ALWAYS BURN THE RAGS USED IN THIS PROCESS, THEY CAN SELF IGNITE IF LEFT ALONE!!
