This is probably a dumb question, if there is a dumb question. But I purchased a 1967 Mountie, I would like to know what was used for the finish and would Linseed oil be the best to clean it with and preserve it?

Thanks for the suggestion on Howards Feed and Wax. I know this question sounds stuppid but I have only had 2 long guns in my life the first was a remington synthetic stock 22LR when I was a boy of maybe 10. Don't even remember what I did with that rifle and the second was a Henry 22LR that I sold for the needed money at the time. Laid off from work hard times in these fine day's. I have always been a handgun person. Now with this mountie I would like to keep it nice and I never had to worry with the other rifles about cleaning them. But this Mountie is a 1967 and the stocks look a little dry. I don't want to let them start to crack or anything so that is why I am asking.

There's never a dumb question :). I have a '68 Mountie and I have never heard of Howard's Feed and Wax. Now I'm on a mission to find it. My stocks probably could use some ;), Lonnie.

FWIW:

I've had good results with Renaissance Wax/Polish on both the wood and the metal on my 39A and Model 70 Century Limited.

Just another option.

Best Wishes,

Jesse
