Default The Beauty of Steel and Wood - HD VIDEO

Is it just me, of does anyone else sometimes just like to admire the old wood and steel M1 Carbines or M1 Garands? There is something so powerful about holding in your hands a real piece of history, the weapons used to defeat the totalitarian forces of evil during WWII. Heck, sometimes I just take them out of the gun safe and polish and lightly clean for no other reason than I just love handling them. Anyone else do the same?

Here's a video about one of my M1 Carbines and three of my Garands, with a couple Garand shooting demonstrations.

Nice video and very nice collection.. Question: What is this "Tom's 1 to 3 Mix" you refer to in your video? Is this a wax formula?

Yes, it is a mixture of white bees wax, turpentine and BLO. Really makes for a nice final finish.
