The stock on my new Citori 525 appears to have an oil finish. Suggestions as to how to properly care for the very attractive wood finish would be appreciated. TIA MikeSp <p></p><i></i>

Mike, Take a 35 MM film canister and mix up 2 parts boiled linseed oil to 1 part tung oil. Add a pea size amount of the good old Johnson's paste wax that comes in the yellow can. Add a ball bearing, or small nut so when you shake it up it will mix together good. In the evening when your watching the boob tube take and just dip the tip of your finger into it and rub it into the stock. A little goes a long ways. You will be happy. My Grand-dad made stocks for 40 years and this is all he ever used. Keep it out of the checkering. If it does get in there brush it out with a tooth brush. Good luck. Dave<br> <br> Oh, you say, why should I buy all this stuff just to make so little amount?? Because it's a 525. Wish you had a feather stuck up your A$$ and I had your 525 we would both be tickled. HE HE <p></p><i></i>

1. You might have also noticed that most guns do not have much protection on the hidden parts of the stock.<br>So you might want, if you know how, to take the stock or any other wooden parts off and put some oil on the inside of these wooden parts so as to offer them longterm protection from the elements.<br><br>2. Note that using too much oil on you stock can be worst than using no oil. If you overdo it you stock will become soaked and will be softened up. In reality most guns will get enough oil just from the user oiling the barells and accidentally spilling some oil on the stock....This is truer for some barell oils that are also suitable for the stock.<br><br><img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/nerd.gif" /> <p>Its not how well you shoot , <br>its how much noise your gun makes</p><i></i>
