    Fabrique Nationale M 1910

    I have a FN M-1910 that is all original from what I can tell. It has 4-digits for the serial number.

    The wooden grip on one side has a small, but fixable split, but keeps the retention screw from holding it down.

    Someone in the past has used some sort of adhesive, that appears to be years (decades?) old.

    How do you remove adhesive, without ruining the patina?

    Heat it with a blow drier then try to rub it off.

    Rubbing alcohol may work, depending on the adhesive.

    Is the adhesive in the split, or on a semi flat surface?

    On a flat surface, try a flexible but firm piece of plastic. Start on the edge of the adhesive pushing it onto itself.
    Takes time and work slowly. Might be able to use a broken toothpick.

    The rubbing alcohol might move the patina he’s worried about.

    To repair the split, your better options might be an aliphatic resin glue, a luthier’s CA glue, or a traditional hide glue. Most glue joint failures aren’t actually from poor joint to joint contact, but insufficient or an inappropriate glue.

    I'm not worried about the small 1" split, that's the easy part to fix.

    It's getting the adhesive off. It's been there for such a long time.

    Again, without damaging the patina.
