I didn't even clean the guns my daughters shot, they learned to do it themselves and they learned they were responsible for maintaining what they used.

As for cleaning the stock, Simple Green, 409, soap and water all work. Simple Green or 409 if there are tough stains on it.
As a young lad, my dad taught us you shoot, you clean...
