I agree(JLG) and may be faint in some areas it's still a very clean cartouche and worth saving. You did well!!! Simple cleaning will not harm this....and once oiled may bring it out even more

Congrats on receiving a really nice rifle! Not often do you see an all correct rifle from CMP...

Nice stock. Other than wiping down with RLO don’t mess with that. Enjoy your piece of history!

Shomway is right, that's a great cartouche and as long as you don't get a sander near it and simply be careful (the stock pics make me think the rest is in great shape anyway) it will be fine.

Here's a link to a scientific test conducted on cartouches using a dishwasher, the point is your aggressive cleaning won't be as hars as the dishwasher so see for yourself.
https://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=273767

I use the process described here when I don't use the dishwasher. It's slower (when you have a few hundred stocks labor is a thing) and will get you to the same results after a few spray-soak-scrub-rinse sessions. https://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=158125

I don't often use stain (and that stock doesn't look like it needs it) but I have had some luck using Fairtrimmers Military OX oil (no longer made?) or stain to use as a wash in the cartouche to make it easier to see. FWIW

For gods sake don’t use anything other than RLO on that stock.

Would RLO alone solve the sticky problem the OP had with the stock?

Quite likely, yes.

If it doesn't, then plan B it, but I agree with you and others about light cleaning and that in no way should the OP think about any type of aggressive stripping.

RLO gives the OP the best options for follow up finishing. If he decides he wants to stick to the RLO then he's good to go. If he chooses to use BLO or Tung then he can do so after the RLO, but RLO is not best used after those finishes have been applied.

thanks for all the advice! I'm still set on just cleaning the stock, it's got a great color and patina for me, I just want to remove the slight tacky feel it has in places. I know some of you have mentioned mineral spirits, or a 50/50 mixture of BLO and mineral spirits. which would be better to clean it with: mineral spirits, BLO or RLO? I was probably going to try and clean and lube everything down this weekend so I can take it to the range soon.

Clean it and use some 1/3 stock wax to finish it off. You will be happy.
