Browning 300 WSM finish

2 posts in this topic

I bought a 300 WSM that has a camo finish all over the barel and everywhere else- It is not a "blued" finish like my other guns that I just clean with gun oil- Do I do the same with the 300 WSM that has a camo finish that is not smooth like the other blued finish or is there some other oil I use for the outside of the gun- Thanks-

Fish:

I'll be interested in this too, as I own a good turkey gun that is full-camo.

At the time I purchased the gun, I was told by the salesman, and their gunsmith to apply regular gun oil (whichever you use) to the camo-finished barrel as well. Didn't sound right at the time, but I've been doing it for almost 6 years with no ill-effects other than a richer petina (from the oil I'm guessing). It still doesn't shine, though I rarely oil it. In fact, I usually only apply oil after there's been condensation/rain, well after i've dried it out and wiped it down with a rag.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
