Re: Cleaning 1884 without damaging or modifying finish

KJ, I agree with Dick that dark wood is very attractive on these TD's and you should take no action to lighten their color. I would not recommend you to take the stock off of the TD. I wonder why you did not use what was mentioned, like the lemon oil (Hope's Premium), and then the Rem oil on the metal? I have a mint 1867 Sharps and a mint 1877 TD carbine and the wood on both has a beautiful reddish hue, but the vast majority are dark brown. Actually I an suspicious of very light colored stocks. Be careful.
