Carb or brake cleaner. Spray on cloth first then put on dirty area. Reduces the risk of coming in comtact with wood. Its cheap and it works. I do it on Krieghoff, Perazzi, Grulla, ect.

Let me get this straight, K80 owner is afraid of being around chemicals that are too harsh, yet sprays WD-40 on his beloved treasure? Like the others said, brak-kleen, gun scrubber, etc and 4/0 steel wool. BTW, pitch the WD-40 and buy some decent gun oil. You may keep the WD if you need to lubricate something delicate like anchor chain or use it for it's original intent, water displacement, hence the WD part. This has been discussed many times before here, doesn't anyone read these things?

Carb cleaner with a mild abrasive pad should do it. Carb cleaner is inexpensive, but it is less expensive if you buy it in a gallon can labeled acetone in the paint department than if you buy it in a spray can labeled carb cleaner in the auto parts section. Acetone is most expensive if you buy it in the ladies make-up section under the label "finger polish remover". But, no matter what the label is, acetone works well.
