I very recently bought a new Winchester 86 short rifle in 45-70, I don’t have it in my possession yet because being in commiefornia I must wait ten days but when doing the paperwork on Friday the rifle was there and I noticed how dried out the wood looked. I’ve head some say it has an oil finish on those guns, I don’t thing it has any finish at all. Anyone out there buy one of these over the past few years? If it has a finish I’d love to know what it is. Other than the tang safety and rebounding hammer it’s a very nice gun.deep dark blueing and the wood was fitted well to the receiver , just curious about the finish. I might rub some blo into it once I have it..
