    I was given a Winchester 94 in the early 50's for Christmas. I used it all my life, and it still has no rust. I use Ballistol to protect it from rust. It was invented by Germany in WW1 to protect their guns.

    Old stuff still works. Even me.

I have made several hundred stocks and I ALWAYS put finish on the inside of the stock to seal it. If the stock is a laminate, you won't have any problem, same for composite stocks.
    No I haven't checked that. Just got the rifle tonight. Ill check and seal it if needed. Thanks for the heads up.
