I got the last $7.99 Rommy stock set from centerfire, its not to bad of shape but is dull and scratched. I am just using the dong foregrip.

I assum I should sand it down to take off the old finish, what grits paper?

Also the Aims-74 has a light colored lower, what should I use on the would for stain/and shine?

Well I good start is to get some acetone and soak it to remove any previous shellac or stains and such. then I always start with low grit to dig deep then end with start with 100 then 150 then 220 and that is what I use sometimes I will go a bit finer to get more shine but it is harder to stain the wood I have found (takes more time) I think because the surface is almost polished after some good work. if you take your time it can turn out awesome. I have to ask now though what are you looking for a standard oil finish or a red stain with poly to make her shiny? need an idea of what you are trying to do a pic of what your wanting will get more responses to get you in the correct direction

the sanding will be the same but for that finish that looks more like an amber shellac and this one I haven't done but if you do a search on this forum there used to be some decent info for mixing and getting the colors for it. I will update the post with links if I find them. The shellac that says amber on the can will already be the color your looking for no mixing unless you don't like the color always start on a test peice of wood make sure that is what you want to finish with.
this one shows what to buy and it works I have seen it on guns I haven't used it though its supposed to be easier than poly so follow the instructions on the can and go from there good luck.
