What, if anything, do you do to the wood on your rifles? Not refinishing, just maintaining the original finish.
Stew,I just use Ballistol or such to clean and protect. I don’t put wax, finish, BLO or other on true collectors. Not so bad on a 1903 or Garand that went thru some rebuilds but it’ll hurt a K98, Swedish Mauser, Swiss Schmidt Rubin, Finn Mosin and many others collectibility.
Thanks but I better pass, like to keep them as original. If I saw one looking like it was degrading I might would match the original used finish as best I could, but so far they are fine as original (or last rearsenal as best I know) and don’t need me to add or subtract. A little oil/Ballistol wipe down from time to time. The environment they are stored in being the biggest key to longevity.Stew,
I’m about to make another “tub” of the concoction and will send you some to try if you would like.
I use Tom's 1/3 Mix, Military Gunstock Wax, Natural Mix. It really soaks in well, it's not like car wax, smells nice too.
