    Daystate tactical stock.

    My stock is becoming a bit sticky, as if the finish is going off. Gives great contact with the hand to stock but not so great feel on the checkpiece. Is there any fixes to cure this ?

    Mine is that same, I only bought it to fit studs but I've kept the original walnut stock as it's a lovely stock, I dont mind the sticky side of it at moment but it don't half pick up fluff etc and looks shabby, I'm sure halfords do a rubber type spray but I to will be keeping an eye on this thread for any advice, I guess the rubber stuff on my stock is going to get worse ,

    I'm sure I've read an answer to sticky stocks on here previously, if you search you'll probably find it.

    If it's a soft touch coating that's going sticky the only option is to strip it.

    99% IPA & a cloth usually works once the coating starts to give out.


    I truly hate that stuff, it fails every time and seems to exist purely to ruin things that would otherwise last years. "Built in Obsolescence" comes to mind
    I've binned so many items that were too much trouble to restore.

    Here's the reply I got from Daystate.
    Unfortunately it sounds as though the molecular structure of the rubber within the stock has began to break down, and like all rubber returning to its natural state irrespective of composition, hence the stickiness. While I cannot for sure say why this is happened to yours, the common cause is petrochemical contamination, such as oil, cleaner, detergent, high levels of UV etc..

    The most likely rectification method is to have your stock refinished by a third-party, or clean off the old rubber with solvent, and re-coat with rubber spray found that many Motor factor resellers, shops etc.

    We do not have any replacement stocks, but likely you will find one via social media or other areas should you need, or do it yourself as there are many guides on the Internet.

    Thanks for the info but it's quite a common thing with these stocks, Saying that I had a lovely Joe rocket motorcycle jacket that i bought from M&P motorcycles in Swansea some years ago, It was a cracking jacket and in all fairness it was waterproof. Anyway I decided to remove the back armour to fit in another jacket which was more suited for the winter only to find that the back protection had seemed to have melted like a 1000 black Jack's that had been munched by a donkey, Jesus it was awful, Went straight in the bin, Was gutted as it was a lovely jacket to,
