Vinci- Sticky Stock?????

Recommended Posts

Hello Shooters

 

 I have a new 2019 Vinci shotgun. It's brand new, I didn't notice it when I purchased two weeks ago, but now I see that the stock is disgustingly sticky.  Any solution to clean the stock and make it less sticky and smooth? I have the brown synthetic furniture on my Vinci.

Possibly a defective run of the synthetic material.  My 20 ga. M2 had the same issue with the butt stock.  The forearm was just fine.  It was almost like the material was slowly melting.  No amount of cleaning it would help.  Another manufacturer had a similar issue and it ended up being an improperly cured batch of parts.  Benelli sent me a replacement stock for the M2.  You might contact Benelli customer service.  For mine they were quite helpful.

I have found Benelli Customer Service to be very helpful.  They helped me with a problem that I had on a 10-year old forestock and I was very happy with the experience.

You can use lots of solvents/oils/waxes to clean your gun, but some shotgun cleaning solvents are designed to dissolve plastic wads from the barrel.  I would be very careful with those around the furniture, whether it is wood or synthetic.  I don't think you can buy methylene chloride based cleaners any more, but those would eat through pretty much any plastic or varnish and make them tacky.  If you have any sticky residue that doesn't come off with isopropyl alcohol, then there is something that either you or Benelli messed up.
