Synthetic stock with Jungle Formula Insect repellent


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am looking at getting a second 22rf and think I have settled on the Tikka T1. Where I shoot there are a lot of biting insects so I end up using Jungle Formula which has a high deet content. In the past this has effected the plastic on my Binos, making it go soft and spongy. I was wondering if anyone had had a similar problem with synthetic stocks, particularly the Tikka T1 factory stock.

 

cheers in advance

Hello, have you tried other insect repellent ?? There has been mentioned of product from boots the chemist that the army soldiers use that is chemical free and works to keep insects from human skin, try a search on the net,

Here it is Avon's Soft Skin So Soft dry oil, that is what I read on the Army web site,

I was going to suggest the Avon as Deet eats plastic. They also do a good sun screen that's not greasy. 

More recently I've been wearing the Army issue head net which is excellent at keeping out any biting insects but not direct stinging like wasps. I wear a pair of light running gloves on my hands, the type with a long cuff that goes a couple of inches up your arms.
