Must be some sort of wood aging or seasoning thing but I swear my gun gets better looking everyday. I liked it when I got it but now it's like twice as good looking as it was in September.

It's deeper and richer and the figure is more pronounced.

Anyone else notice this?

Naw, it's the standard finish offered by CG. Don't believe it's linseed oil but it is sure alive.

Woah, I stand corrected. It is a linseed oil finish. So that's the answer. It is alive and becoming more rich and deep. I was just joking around when I started the thread. I was thinking it's all in my mind because I just love the gun.

Thanks for that.

Don't know about looks, but mine is starting to shoot better everyday. Had it about 2 months now. Wouldn't take 2 of the one gun I traded for it. Mine does look much better in the sunshine.

I like the look of my gun from the day I got it. Is it looking better. Maybe but for sure it's the first one to come out of the safe to go shooting.

I thought mine was OK when I first bought it but it's definitely getting more depth of color.

It's been shooting perfect all along but I'm not holding it back as much as I was at first. LOL.

No, it's not. Don't be confused by Guerini's statement that they use a "hand-rubbed oil finish." Nearly all the Italian manufacturers, including Guerini, use Tru-Oil. Saying that Tru-Oil is lindseed oil is like saying my Ford F150 is a Model-T.

RKa5, thanks.

Tell me what the difference between True Oil and Linseed oil is.

Tru-Oil is a combination of 56% standard mineral spirits (solvent), 33% modified oils (proprietary petroleum based solvents and metallic driers), and 11% linseed oil (with proprietary modifications).

Boiled linseed oil is exactly that. Raw linseed oil (flax-seed oil) when used as a wood finish dries slowly, if at all. It is not water proof, or even water resistant, and it yellows with age. Heating linseed oil makes it thicker and somewhat shortens its drying time. A fine finish can be achieved but takes a LOT of time and is easily damaged by handling and/or moisture.

Quote from the CG website under FAQs:

"What kind of finish is on Caesar Guerini stocks? 
We only use a linseed oil based finish on our stocks. A true oil finish brings out the beauty of the wood."

Is tru-oil considered a "linseed oil based finish"?

This isn't that difficult guys. The quote above refers to "A true oil finish". The word "true" is an adjective used to describe, or enhance the description of, the finish. "Tru-Oil" is either a proper noun (name brand) or a generic name used to describe a particular finish or group of oil finishes.

Damn, my English teacher of 50 years ago would be so proud! :D

Got that, I guess the question is what kind of finish does CG use?

:lol: that would be a linseed oil based finish. That could be True Oil or it could be their own formula.
