Hey all,
Recieved a Series 3 rifle today. It's fairly nice, but the stock has a little paint splater on it and more importantly, several small holes from some wood eatting bug. Looks similar to holes you see on old antique furniture. Is there any sort of treatment that I can spray on it to make sure the bugs are truly dead and gone? I'd hate to put it in my gun safe and have an infestation!
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Steve, I think you've got it pegged. I'll keep an eye on it and get some furniture wax to plug the holes. Not too many of them, luckily enough.

So far I haven't seen any telltale signs of sawdust. I might go ahead and freeze the stock as the screws have been messed with already. At the momment, the freezer is full of non-collector type goodies, so I'll just leave it outside of the safe and keep an eye on it.
Thanks to everyone for the advice!
