I have a Norwegian refinished 1936 S/42 shooter that's in great shape. However, the original wooden grips need cleaning and look a little dry. Any recommendations on cleaning/preserving the grips?
Thanks in advance!

I have had good luck scrubbing grips with acetone and an old toothbrush. It really seems to do a good job of getting the dirt out of the checkering.
I then finish up with one or two coats of Tru-oil considerably thinned out which should help to cure the dryness.

Agree that Acetone does the trick. Be careful you work in a well ventilated space.

However, I take a more traditional approach to preservation and use BOILED linseed oil worked in with a soft cloth. Great on stocks too.
