Just received this M1906 off Guns Intl. It is an early rifle, PR’d in 12 of 1909. One of the nicest ones I have ever seen. Nice Lyman 1-A attached, and what you seldom see, a minty bore. Someone took care of this Boys rifle. Maybe he had a Dad like me that insisted he clean it good after use. Now, I will hand it off to my buddy for a thorough cleaning and a Ren-Waxing. Big Larry

Looks like only thing missing is the hang-tag.  How do you use the Ren-Wax?

This is how Larry does it.

This is museum quality wax and has no acids.

Wax on, wax off. According to Mr. Miago. The stuff is expensive, but smells great. Ups your 90% gun to a 95%’er. Many museums use it. Almost every gun I own is Ren-Waxed.  Big Larry

He said nothing about degreasing the metal before application.  Wouldn’t that be necessary for the wax to adhere properly?

I don’t grease my guns. I clean them and apply a thin cote with a silicone cloth. The Ren Wax seems to adhere OK. I have never had a problem.

Thanks all. As a Winchester 22 collector I was happy to add this rifle to my collection. I already had a very late M06, just about as nice as this one, but this one is marked M1906 and I just had to have it.  Big Larry

Just wondering, does the wax cause the gun to feel ‘sticky’?  RDB

Absolutely not. A little slippery though.  Big Larry
