    While poking around the far recesses of my reloading bench I found a bottle of Tru Oil. It surely belonged to my father which means is must be at least 40 years old. The liquid,however, appears stable.

    I'm assuming it won't have any practical use on gun stocks that have a polyurethane finish - but should I consider using it on the shotgun stocks that I have with an "oil" finish.

    What are the uses, benefits, drawbacks, applicability, etc ? Re: the positive benefits should I be concerned using it since it has considerable age ?

    An unopened bottle, 40 yrs old, may be worth something to a collector....just a thought.

    I keep a bottle around and use it to repair small blemishes on a number of different finishes even polyurethane. It will dry to a gloss finish if built up. It is very versatile and will make a nice "hand rubbed" finish if applied in that manner.
