Winchester Model 59 Rifle stock
I am cleaning my Model 59 and I'm trying to get different ideas on what to use on the stock. I don't want to mess up the value of the gun so I'm not doing any sanding. I was also thinking about useing satin poly due to the fact I am a woodworker and could make it as smooth as a baby's bottom but there again I don't beleive that was a finish they would use at that time so the poly is out. I was told to use a good quality furniture cleaner/polish oil on it which I did and it did a great job on cleaning. The problem I have now is even though the cleaner/polish worked great on the cleaning of it I would like to have a little more satin sheen. I was told I could use a product called "True Oil" to get the sheen I am looking for. My question is, has anyone here ever used this oil before (or have another suggestion) and would it effect the value? I'm thinking, it being an oil product and not a poly, that it really shouldn't. Also I have cleaned all metal parts and by cleaning them it took it to the metal which should be fine since there doesn't seem to be any bluing on the gun. I also wanted to get some ideas about bluing the parts. Should or should not??
