I did a search here and didn’t find anything on this issue so I’ve created a new post.
I just finished bedding the v-block lugs in a Boyd’s stock for my Ruger Am. Predator using the provided epoxy and mold release wax. The bedding went fairly well for my first time but my question is, what can I use to remove the wax from the parkerized barrel/receiver finish as well as the fiber-reinforced poly AR magwell?
I’ve tried Powder Blast and rubbing alcohol with no luck. An internet search suggests acetone or mineral spirits but I’ve also seen information (quite possibly incorrect, it’s the internet) that one or both of these can affect some firearm finishes. I’m familiar with the use of both solvents but never in a firearm context and I don’t want to jack up my gun, I’m so close to finishing and she’s starting to look pretty good. I have faith some of the brothers will have a safe and effective way of dealing with this, you boys haven’t let me down yet.
