heavy4x4 Posted February 24, 2005 Share Posted February 24, 2005 Hi everyone, I'm new here after just purchasing my first Benelli. I bought an SBE I (synthetic stock, 28" barrel) last week for $1000 total from Gander Mountain. I really like it so far but haven't fired it yet. I'm a converted Remington fan. I really like Remingtons, but in the gun configuration I wanted (3.5" autoloader that also shoots 2 3/4"), the Benelli couldn't be beat. Anyway, on to my question. I've always dealt with Remingtons with wood stocks. After cleaning and before putting them in their cases, I would wipe down the wood and barrel and receiver with a gun-oil soaked rag. It would give everything a nice light coating of oil for rust prevention on the metal parts, water protection on the wood parts, and a nice sheen for looks. Should I do this with my Benelli too? Is there any harm? Is there any benefit? Thanks for any input. Happy hunting/shooting. -Steve Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
