I want to glue back a piece of wood that fell off the receiver end of the stock on a Rem M11. Neither the chip nor the stock LOOK exceptionally oily, but on a firearm that old I'm sure there's skin oil if not lubricating oil that has soaked into the wood. I plan to use Gorilla Glue for the repair.

Do you think I should degrease the parts first? Any suggestions how to do so? Soak in acetone? Wash with Dawn?

Thanks for your thoughts.

I would wipe it with a paper towel w/ acetone on it. Wipe repleadly until paper towel clean. Then glue.

Brownell's sells a produce caller "whiting" that reportedly draws oil out of wood . You might check their info to see if this is appropriate for your project .

Regardless of the adhesive used , it would be good to include some small dowells, screws , whatever to reinforce the joint against shear across the repair .
