Re: Cleaning 1884 without damaging or modifying finish

Apparently, you used water-soluable products while the gun was assembled? I would have taken it apart and handled the wood and metal separately - last thing you want is water/moisture in the joint(s)! Better make sure you got it dry.

Personally, I (to a point) prefer dark wood over light, unless the light is truly original. Cleaned-to-light usually LOOKS like it has been cleaned, and often seems a bit un-natural to boot.

Your gun, your preferences, just my $.02.
