Stripping Auto 5 woodwork

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

anyone stripped the woodwork on a Browning Auto 5? What worked or didn’t?

Mine is an early 60s version I think.

Thanks in advance,

Blackfriars paint & varnish remover does the job, faster than the screwfix stuff and dries off nicely. Ive used both and the Blackfriars was way better. It's Strong smelling and a bit more expensive but does a good job.

Oven cleaner in the spray can worked well for me, I think I did a writeup on here a while ago when I did one of my Auto-5's..
