View Full Version : LB Izzy Wood from Sarco
November 07, 2001, 17:56
When I ordered, the salewoman said it would take anywhere from 1.5 to 3 weeks to get here and after two weeks, it has arrived.
It doesn't come with the hardware; I ordered all that from gunthings.com in anticipation of the wood arriving. Does anyone know of a good way to degrease them? Formula 409 okay?

Well, I came in from practice tonight and my wife said that she had made stew for dinner. Let me tell you I was happy, hers is the best. As I walked into the kitchen there was a box siting on the bar. I asked what she had got, and she said, "oh, that came for you today." Man, I ripped that box open to see a good looking set of hg and a stock. They will clean up nice.
Sarco did good by me!
I , too, an looking for the best way to get rid of the cosmaline.

Citrus stripper works well for surfaces that you want to keep nice.

Castol Super Clean, or genaric purple cleaner from wally world. Cleaned up two Mausers with this stuff. Cosmoline runs right off. Same active ingredients as oven cleaner but a lot cheaper.

Damn that stock and handguard looks good! Someone told me a while back that the ones from Sarco were junk. :confused:

I got my Israeli stock set from SARCO today also and they're *definitely* not junk,... obviously brand new and still in the cosmoline. I use plain old rubbing alcahol to clean the cosmoline off of mine,... cheap and easy on the wood..... by the way,.. Brad at Gunthings tells me that he's going to have some wood pistolgrips that match the wood on the Israeli sets in soon. Should be a nice addition. If ya want one,.. e-mail him and tell him to hurry up!

Got mine yesterday, they are nice. I only wish I had ordered three.

Someone on this board recommended removing the grease with acetone. Said it didn't make the wood swell like water-based sovents and surfactants.

Mine were waiting for me when I got home yesterday. They are pristine and even have a little piece of paper in the hand guards that seem to indicate what they are and when they were made (1976 for mine).
My only complaint, and I don't know if it's minor or major, is this: The packers just dumped the stocks and hand guards into the styrafoam peanuts and now I have bits and pieces of peanut melted to the butt stocks. Any idea how to get this stuff off?

Mine came as well and they are great! What a deal. :D

I had the same problem. I used a plastic paint scraper and fingernail to free the stock from the gooey styrofoam. It looked as if a reaction occured between the preservative and the styrofoam.

I got a HB set from SARCO about 6 months ago, and they look great also. A little work on the front handguard got it to fit on my STG. I like the flip up buttplate on the HB stock (got it from GPC). :)

I scrubbed mine down w/soft toothbrush and a bucket of paint thinner. Everything came off nicely. These sets are the bomb.

According to me Wifey, 409 says on the spray bottle not to use on wood (guess bad things might happen).

I bought one set but would like to trade some new Chinese AK47 40rnd mags for a couple more. Give me a holler if you'd like to trade.
