I have a couple of GRS laminate stock on rifles and was wondering what people used to protect the wood ?
They are both grey in colour I think they are Arctic Wolf so a coloured stock oil isnt really an option ..

Thanks

i've never done anything to my Boyd Laminate stock... its 15 years old now and good as new. Been shot in rain, snow all sorts. just wipe it down after use.

Get a bottle of walnut oil from Sainsbury's, pour a little on a soft cloth, and just wipe them over sparingly from time to time.

Or pay through the nose for something like Birchwood Casey's stock oil or whatever....................

If it's laminated with Polyurethane Walnut oil will not penetrate into the wood. A neutral polish like Renaissance wax should keep it looking good.
