GRS laminate maintenance
GRS Maintenance Oil can be bought at your local GRS dealer.
Please follow this procedure when applying oil to your GRS stock:
Use latex or Nitrile Gloves to protect your hands, the oil contains wax and can be difficult to remove.
- You will get the best result if you remove the action and barrel from the rifle stock.
- Make sure your stock is dry and clean. Be advised that if the stock is wet, the moisture will be locked inside the stock once you apply a protective layer of oil; this can damage the laminate, causing it to de-laminate.
- Shake the bottle of oil for approx. two minutes - the oil contains a wax, which needs to be thoroughly mixed to obtain the best results.
- Apply a thin, even, layer of oil and let it rest for two minutes. If you notice that the oil has been fully absorbed in some areas and they seem dry, reapply the oil in those areas.
- Wipe off excess oil and be sure to remove any drops, as they will harden during the curing process.
- Please discard safely any oil-soaked cloths by burning them. A oil soaked-cloth can self-ignite!
- Let the GRS rifle stock dry at room temperature for 12 hours (about 20ºC) before applying the second layer.
- To obtain the best result, gently sand down the stock between applied layers - we recommend using 220-320 grained soft paper.
- Two layers of oil are usually enough to obtain the desired result.
GRS MAINTENANCE OIL IS BASED ON LINSEED OIL.
ALWAYS BURN ALL OIL-SOAKED CLOTH USED IN THE MAINTENANCE PROCESS, AS OIL-SOAKED CLOTH CAN SELF-IGNITE!
GRS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OR ACCIDENTS ARISING FROM THE USE OF THE MAINTENANCE OIL.
