Should I clean my old gun?
An antique gun's original finish and patina are of paramount importance to the firearm collector. The value of many an antique firearm has been destroyed by over cleaning and/or refinishing. The only metal cleaning we recommend is to use oil and extra fine or super fine steel wool (#000 or #0000) and lightly rub the metal surfaces. This should remove surface grim while not harming the finish or patina. The timber can be cleaned with soap and water then finished with a mixture of furniture wax and talcum powder.
