    Paste wax will get you a little shine, but for a real glossy finish your going to need to go to a poly.

    Here's a link to oil that is used on both the wood and metal of antique arms. I've used it on my Beretta and it gives a nice shine to an oil finish w/o harming it.

    Before any refinishing try Mequiars Plastx Clear Plastic Cleaner and Polish this product is designed to polishesh headlight covers use with a clean cotton cloth or micrto fiber. Will not leave scratches will polish semi gloss to a gloss, go slow works very well.

    I know this will sound like under-kill, but try rubbing it with one of those yellow polishing cloths that you buy in bundles at Wally-World. I forget the micron count, but they REALLY shine both bluing and wood finishes.

    You put the stock in a boiling vat with coiled tubes of copper coming out the top. As the vapor condenses it circles around the copper tube and drips in the quart mason jar........

    There is your Caesar Guerini stock shine.....

    It doesn't much better than Treewax paste floor wax.

    Since you're already starting with oil finish...I'd finger apply multiple coats of Truoil..I did this on my Beretta JEG Special...took 5 coats with a light sanding with 600gr wet sand wetted with oil...then last coat also buffed with clear coat scratch remover..shines like a Browning now

    Lots of good advice for most stocks. Also consider that some of the advice you are getting is NOT from Guerini owners. I have several guerini's and have used several methods mentioned with minimal success.

    Best has been boiled linseed oil and lots and lots and lots of rubbing with a soft synthetic cloth. I used 0000 steel wool once and wont do it again since I'd rather shoot than polish!

    I infer you want something easy to put on, and remove with minimal elbow grease. If so, get the Guerini oil from CG. While expensive for a small amount, it works best. Its a blend of linseed oil and other oils.

    The recommendation from Caesar Guerini is to apply "Tru-oil" as noted above

    I use Formby's Lemon Oil Treatment (get at Wal mart) and it does a great job.

    Caesar Guerini suggested I use Pro Oil which is thinner in Viscosity than Tru Oil and dries faster, they have a 30% humidity room to dry the Pro Oil on stocks Room.

    Where do I buy Proil?
