This is the original Winchester Pre-64 Stock Oil developed, used and sold by John Kay in his Winchester Restorations Business for many years. It was sold on his WinRest web site which is no longer there.

John Kay was a master restorer of old Winchester guns and his company was Winchester Restorations. In 2008 he had to retire for health reasons and his Stock Oil was no longer available for sale. I have arranged to sell it.  This is John’s oil formula, which is a 100% linseed oil-based formula and probably as close to the original Winchester oil as any available.  I have used a number of those advertised as “Winchester” stock oil. Most are not a real oil-based formula, or they do not use or use very little linseed oil.  Many/most have a varnish type base or content.  If a formula can be applied in 2 or 3 coats over a few days, then it is not a true linseed oil formula like Winchester used for most of their early guns, until the 1940’s.

Using a linseed oil based product takes time and effort. A real oil finish goes into the wood not on the wood.  Using this product will take 30 or more days to complete the restoration and will give an original Winchester type satin hand rubbed oil finish. It can be used on old stocks & forearms and on new wood.  It is not just a coat on the wood surface like a varnish. If you want something you can complete in a week or less, this is not what you want. I will be glad to send you the complete instructions before you purchase so you know what is involved. You will get out of your restoration what you put into it.

I have used this product on about 100 old Winchester 73, 92 & 94 rifles and carbines with excellent results.  One 4-oz bottle contains enough oil to restore several guns, usually 5 to 10. The 2 oz bottle is for touch-up restoration and/or refinishing 1 to 3 rifles.

John Kay also had a great Rust Bluing Solution. If you are interested in it let me know and I can tell you where to get it.

Instruction on how to complete a restoration or just a touch-up will be sent if you contact the seller as instructed above.
