Nothing if it has an oil finish. I just rub in some oil now and then.

Hello 56 Kodiak Shooter,  I've been using Johnson's paste wax, but I am trying out a "new to me" product called Renaissance Wax polish.  I do like it, it dries hard and is not suppose to show finger prints.  Doesn't have that initial odor that Johnson's paste wax does has either.

Good question, it will be interesting to see what others use.

Ya'll might think me odd but,
Thompson Center Bore Butter.
I have been using it for over 20 years on all my wood stocks.
Works perfect.

Now I know what to do with the Bore Butter that's been gathering dust for 15 years. I sure don't like it as a bullet or patch lube.

It's 21 degrees here and I just got back from taking the dog for a hike.  I thought it was rather pleasant. With the cold weather we've been having this year you are probably seeing a lot more "Snowbirds" down South.  Of course they are bundling up just like they did back home.  Twisted Evil

It's 27 degrees here. Kind of normal for this time of year. It will be up into the 50's when I take the pooch to the mountains for a run. That is warm for Jan. So far this is the mildest winter i've seen here.

Pete we just got our first snow that amounted to anything, about 12 inches so far. Ordered a new snowblower from Lowes on Friday a week ago, came in on Saturday of this week. Had time to grab it, gas and oil, come home service the unit then go to work on clearing drive and walks. Got under the wire one more time, thank you - thank you.  cheers
