There’s a warning on the label about the possibility of spontaneous combustion of the rags you use. Believe it, I’ve seen it with other oil finishes.

Not at all uncommon with any oil finish.

Upon purchasing Ostermayer JAGD Gun Stock Finish through Amazon, there were no directions given and/or to follow. The first coat was applied and wiped down within four hours. I could not determine any significant difference. Upon applying the second coat, I allowed the Ostermayer JAGD Oil to sit for seven (7) days.

I decided at that point to rub or polish the AAA French Walnut on a “New” Winchester Super Grade chambered in a .308 caliber. Prior to polishing, I touched the surface with my finger and moved it slightly across the wood. I found the oil to be somewhat tacky (gummy). As I proceeded to polish, I noticed the process of polishing was very difficult: leaving smudge marks with immaterial staining. Again, it was more than a task to polish the French walnut. I will state that the finish on the gunstock was a matte or satin finish (Original): ‘Right from Winchester’. My intentions were to bring out more of the grain, trying to enhance the French walnut to a sheen. Any oil will bring out the grain, so this facet was irrelevant. I did not really care for the properties contained within the aforesaid product. In applying, if one applies the Ostermayer JAGD Gun Stock Finish and wipes it down within three to four hours, there is no issue with the above. However, I made mention in my initial synopsis, I found the Ostermayer JAGD Gun Stock Finish/Oil to be slightly tacky. Actually, that should have been a signal as to how the product may perform. I dislike tacky or pasty oils to apply on firearms, especially collectible items. Some may not pay attention to such facts, yet they are imperative in keeping expensive wood in its ‘original’ condition.

Actually, I exchanged the product due to the exterior of the can having two dents (dings) with intentions of ordering another. However, after seeing the results after seven (7) days, I have no intention, none of ordering any more of the Ostermayer JAGD Gun stock Finish. The company refers to the Ostermayer Jagd as “Gun Stock Finish” not oil. In this respect, the terminology is somewhat vague and ambiguous as exactly what the product should be used for. Can we recommend this product? That is entirely the choice of any to try the product, ‘at their own discretion’.

* After posting this comment, Amazon dropped the price $2.00.

Sounds like a product for raw wood, not for previously finished sealed wood. And that Howard Feed stuff is liquified with mineral oil, a wood contaminant. Once that is in the wood good luck getting anything to adhere.

That is what I thought, yet Ostermayer stated it could be used for 'finished sealed wood'. Apparently, that is not true with the test I conducted. I'm using the Howard's on "sealed finished wood (French Walnut), so the oil is staying on the surface as protection. I cannot see Howard's or any other oil as a detriment sitting on a finished wood surface.

I'd like to know what is in that Ostermayer product. It sounds like just a tung oil type stuff. Which can be gotten a lot cheaper.
