    I have a Browning Citori 525. It has the oil finish. I ahve heard that using linceed oil on the wood will bring back the lust in the wood. Is they any product out there to use on this wood to make it look nice again. It has just faded a bit just from handling and cleaning.

    Kevin525,

    I think you mean 'luster of the wood', but somehow I do like your wording, 'lust in the wood' better! That's something all us old farts are trying to find! LOL

    If it has an oil finish now it's probably a drying oil. Use something like Birchwood-Casey "Tru-Oil" instead of linseed. B-C oil is made for gunstocks; linseed oil is for hoe handles.

    20mg Cialis will give you all the lust in the wood you can handle.

    Linseed oil won't bring back luster. If it's flat now, it will stay flat. Tru-oil is what most people around here suggest.
