I was looking at Midways site for a  order and saw this wax called Renaissance wax and rust prevention good for wood stocks and blueing on barrels.  Has anyone ever used this stuff before and what did they like or not?

I have some, and I use it, but not on metal; just as a protecting wax for wood stocks only.  I like it a lot!  It really puts a nice sheen on wood finishes and helps waterproof the wood in wet weather.

Thanks Roy and rifle dude for the input.  Dude is there a reason you didn't put it on metal the way the directions stated it was very good for it they said it gave a museum style finish to wood and metal.  Where may I ask did yo guys get your from?  And does it seem to go along wy/  Thanks again.  I have been using Johnson and Johnson Paste wax on some and the ole turtle wax car polish on the high gloss finish and it works good.  But I'l try the reniassance wax but the cost if rather high.

I haven't tried using it on metal simply because it hasn't dawned on me to try it, and I've always wiped down the metal with a light film of Break Free.

I bought mine from Brownells.

I've used it for years on my stickbows,best wax I know of,it's the oldest known wax in England,they have been using it for centuries!About 10 years ago I did a search on it & it's very good historical reading,sorry I don't remember the site.I can you it also works on all my custom knives including my Damascus blades.

I use Renaissance Wax on the metal and all over.  Later on I can always wipe the gun down with oil after using it, or before going out in bad, wet weather.  I put Renaissance Wax on every few months just to fool around and handle my guns.  They do look like they live in a museum.

I have used Johnson's Paste wax for 40 years and have never had any problem with rust on any of my weapons. It keeps the finish, wood and metal well protected with out discoloring the finish. You don't see much if any of the purplish discoloration of the bluing either.
