    Waxing my revolver

    I'm posting this in 'smithing' because I want responses from someone who knows what they're talking about. ..... I have read that some guys use Johnson's past wax on their guns to protect the metal. I'm thinking of trying that. Any input would be appreciated. . Am I going hurt my revolver?

    A good wipe with clp or a silicone rag will do the trick. Paste wax may gum things up a bit.

    Very common technique. If you want both shine and protection, do the following:

    Clean well

    Polish with any good non-abraisive polish compatible with your finish

    Wax it for a protective coating

    Just go with a light coat or two of each.

    On my safe queen shiny guns I use Renaissance Wax. A little goes a long, long way.

    My first thought was "Oh, is that what they call it these days/"

    But on a serious note, the Renaissance wax is a good choice. In my younger days I used to heat a pistol to a good "warm" with a hair dryer and use any paste wax I had around.

    I have been using Renaissance Wax for about 5 years with absolutely no problems. You can get it at Brownell's.
    I strongly support gun control, how else are you going to hit anything?

    At first I was a bit confused but then I remembered a term used in an old British comedy.
