View Full Version : CLP like for Wood Stocks?

This would apply both for rifles and shotguns, just thought I'd throw it in here.
Is there anything that's a good all around cleaner, protector for wood stocks?

I've got a couple that recently got wet, heavily sweated on and could probably use a little help.

I've never really done anything for my stocks but wipe them off, they are all just field grade - nothing fancy.

Rub in linseed oil or something? Anybody got any ideas?

Thanks

It all depends on what finish your stock or stocks have.
For my Garands, I use what Ted posted, BLO or even Tung Oil (Raw Linseed & pure Tung Oil are harder to find and take forever & a day to dry) BLO = Boiled Linseed Oil and can be found at Osh & Home Depot, next to the Clean-Strip products... i.e. Denatured Alcohol, Mineral Spirits, Acetone, Paint Thinner, and others.

For my shellac or lacquered stocks, BLO isn't really gonna do much except clean off what's on the outside of that hard protective layer.

p.s. I like the looks of that "Quick-as-a-Wink" stuff Ivan posted!! :)

I use Watco Teak Oil for my Yugo SKS. Very easy to apply and very durable.

Thanks for the tips.
And no, I didn't mean to use CLP itself on my wood, just a similar natured product for wood.

I've seen some interesting concoctions referred to at a few Garand-centric boards, but they all seem to come down to BLO or Tung.
There ought to be some sort of cleansing product though, which you could give it a rubdown with then let dry thoroughly before any oil treatment. I'm thinking something like a citrus oil which will cut through any gunk without damaging the wood.

I have used CLP on many different stocks on all of my long guns. I have not seen any damage to any of them. YMMV
