    That depends on how long the finish has been on and what kind of finish it is. Chances are it is a poly eurothane and it has been on long enough. Sand it to perfection and try it but do not wet it down with second and third coats until it has dried a while. It runs a risk of lifting but not likely. Do not let the coats dry bteween eacj other too long either or you wont be able to re coat it until it has cured without lifting. At the worst you would then strip it and start from scratch.

    If the stock originally had checkering it has been filled. Probably something like Bondo which means it would be very hard or impossible to remove it. I would shoot it with a coat of primer and paint it any way you want. The hard work has already been done. If you strip it you will have to start all over again.

    Some strippers won't remove tough paints like epoxy. read the label.

    John.... Jerry is right on. The hard work has been done. Peel off the Perazzi sticker, sand the stock with some 400 grit wet/dry. Spray a coat of primer on it and paint. Another option is to have it filmed over by Shooters Emporium, in Portland, Or. Just mash on the link above for more information.. Dan Thome (Trap2)
