No...not that wood!  You sicko.

I mean what do you use on the wood stocks of your rifles?  How do you take care/treat the wood?

Oils?

Polish?

Etc?­

Give me your ideas please.

Pledge or Old English furniture oil (different tints to match finish and hide scratches)

I use a paste wax, but it really depends upon the type of finish on the stock.

Boiled linseed oil on my walnut stocked M1A.  What the Army used on M-14's and what Springfield reccommends. And I like the smell too.

Tung oil. The Army actually switched to a tung oil during WW2.  The Army found after trials that tung is better than linseed oil in that it won't smoke when heated by heavy firing. I use tung oil on my M-1, my Springfield '03, AND my Mauser 98k. It's probably not appropriate historically for the Mauser, but oh well.

sand off old finish. hand rub(and i do mean hand rub no rag) with linseed oil , it takes about 3 months (every other day) the finish will be a medium to high gloss . after its done it will not be sticky or oily and will have a beautiful shine that will last for years.

Here's a great forum that covers stock finishing:

[url]http://pub113.ezboard.com/fparallaxscurioandrelicfirearmsforumsfrm34[/url]

The consensus there, and what I will be using to refinish my M44, is Behr #600 Scandinavian Tung Oil.

Boiled linseed oil and beeswax (real, not fake stuff from WalMart), heated up in microwave, then apply immediately to wood, rubbing in with palm. Yes, I do use very heavy rubber gloves. Wipe off excess with clean cotton rags.

Once a month does it, if I use the guns a lot.

I haven't noticed the smoking from repeated firing, but I might try tung oil. The big hassle is still weeping cosmoline- brake cleaner seems to be the best bet for getting rid of that stuff, so that one may apply the BLO/beeswax finish, and have it stay in the wood.

I was wondering how long it would take for the thread to go in this direction.

Another vote for Astroglide.  Invented by NASA for....spaceflight..I think.

I don't know what the stocks look like but i know when the Army carried REAL weapons(sorry i like the Ar-15 i have but it is not a real weapon IMHO, the term real weapon is for Iron and wood and calibers statrting with 3!) With wooden stocks they rubbed Boiled Linseed oil into them.
