    Sheepdawg is well versed in that subject. Military's used several different kinds of things on their stocks.

    Sheepdog, can ya explain? Why mix trans fluid in to the mix and not just straight oil? Will the trans fluid mix ruin wood finishes?

    Well, in the case of older rifles, especially a Military collection. Trans mix can ruin finishes on many guns. Most Military used Boiled Linseed Oil.
    Send Sheep a PM on which gun you want to clean/polish, renew finish.
    BLO can be cut a bit to dry sooner. Good for cleaning one that has that finish originally.
    Now, for newer guns, I use only a product called Clenzoil. It is a CLP that can also be safely used on wood stocks.

    Having never used transmission fluid on a firearm I really don't know. I do know it is a excellent lubricant that stays put. We used it to loosen up the blades on our Buck 110s and 112s way back when they were the rage to get them to pop open with a thumb to the blade, worked too along with repeated openings and closings. Google Ed's Red, it's an old way shooter's used to make bore solvent using a mixture of oil, transmission fluid, acetone, and turpentine to see what transmission fluid does to a firearm. Like I said I never used it. Since transmission fluid has a bunch of wax in it maybe it won't hurt a finish but no need for me to find out the hard way.

    By the way Ed's Red will mess up a finish on wood due to the acetone

    I'd rate the Mosin #1 by a very large margin.

    Glad you cleared that up about his wood finishes. Acetone bad for any finish.
