|1/3 Mix Military Gunstock Wax
|What I'm Doing:
|A Stock Cleaner
|Sorry Guys, I originally cleaned this with mineral spirits and finished this with what was suppose to be "THE" original
recipe. It ended up so ugly that I couldn't bare to look at it - BTW, the recipe came straight from Switzerland. I had to use
a more aggressive approach to remove that finish which ended up still in the stock (it was REALLY yukie). Left with no
other real option, I completely sanded the previous finish off, mixed some stains to replicate its previous color, applied
two coats of stains and 3 coats of the White Beeswax Mix - there is no other finish on this stock. I hate to say I did this to
this rifle, but it sure came out pretty.
|This is a M39 I picked up from WG&A back in the day when they actually sold more than the antique versions of these.
The stock was cleaned with Mineral Spirits (unfortunately sanded in just a few spots where I had to glue some splits)
and 2 coats of the White Beeswax Mix was applied. It's been used quite a bit, so it's probably time for some more.
|More Pictures To Come
|This is a Birch Stock after refinishing with only the Natural Beeswax Mix. It turned out beautifully. So much so, it may
replace the Walnut stock I have on my Garand now. Notice in the lower picture, the details and color that the wax mix
allowed to come out.
|This was my experimental Walnut stock after I finished with my many experiments. It was lightly sanded and finished
only with the Natural Beeswax Mix. I'm confident you'll love this stuff.

|Warning: Boiled Linseed Oil
creates heat when it dries. Cloth, steel
wool and other items have been known
to spontaneously combust when drying.
As a precaution, it is always good to
rinse rags and other items with soapy
water after using with BLO. I have never
heard of this happening with the mix,
but I always stay on the safe side and
rinse my rags before washing or
disposing of them.
|These are my Remington 513Ts that I just received from CMP. The wood was too pretty to leave as received so I felt I had to refinish them.
Here are before, and after pictures of the one on the bottom. I used more than my cleaner to get these clean and finished with ONLY the
Natural Beeswax Mix. The sun was at a bad angle for the after pictures, I will up-date them as soon as possible. You will be amazed at
how they look in the sunshine.
|NO sanding was involved anywhere, the
cartouches are still present.

sunny day, this may never get
|The shine you see on both of these stocks is
caused by the flash from the camera.
