Default question on de-oiling parker wood

No need to respond as I did a quick search on the forum and found helpful info on other past posts.

Great forum.

If what you are referring to is oil soaked into the stock head behind the action, the answer is no. Any material or method that will effectively extract some of this oil will also remove the finish. Or at least ruin it.

Some oil might be wicked out if the stock is removed and put under a heat lamp at just the right distance - then the oil sopped off as it oozes out. But this is really not that effective in oil extraction.

In sum, if the oil soak is not too severe, simply live with it. Or refinish the stock.

Thanks John
I won't know until I remove the stock and can see what's inside. Doesn't look bad from the outside but neither did the last one and when Brad removed the stock, it was clearly loaded with oil that had to be removed.
This one's a Trojan 20 I just picked up for short money so as far as the wood goes, I'm going to play with it and see how it comes out. The frame shows no remaining colors so I may ship that out for thorough cleaning and coloring., We'll see.
