Charlie, Always enjoy your thoughts and perspective. My favorite is taking them out on a sunny day and admiring the craftsmanship. Most times is quiet solitude a dram of single malt in the little make shift gun room and a soft cleaning. My Parkers are much more than a hobby... its relaxation, Meriden style.

Therapy for the soul. I have never missed an imaginary rooster on such a day. Cheers Jack

I have to be honest. I have missed imaginary birds.

Right there with you Charlie. Not much of a WD 40 fan for Parkers. I’m so old school I use 3 in 1 Oil.

Charlie, I’ve heard that old used burnt motor oil is good for guns. Why is that?

I have been using WD-40 exclusively ever since it came to market, whenever that was. While I do not purposely apply it to the wood it is inevitable that some will find its way onto wood surfaces during routine cleaning. I have never had any issues with stock finish related to contact with WD-40.

For a stock protectant I use Pledge furniture polish. I have been using it for years as it works quite well. I routinely use it on aircraft windows which are polycarbonate and it holds up for a surprisingly long time. I also use it on my Mec primer tray as it makes the primers flow more freely.
