storing a walnut stock?



Log in to see fewer ads
Good day

What is the best way for storing a walnut Sporter stock from an Anschutz 1710?
Vertical or horizontal?
Long term storage since the rifle wears an aftermarket stock.

thanks

I would think that after putting the stock in one of those vacuum sealed bags, like for bedding, to remove any moisture you would want to store it someplace cool and dark. Maybe under a bed in a locked hard case to prevent any damage to the stock.

Not an expert but those are my thoughts on the question.

I don't know what the best way is when you apply science and make things really complicated but having bought many walnut stocks from Anschütz, Ulm directly, they sent them in the original styrofoam boxes that are also used for their rifles. I would assume that storage in the vertical position would be causing less stress and has logistical advantages.

A nice rubbing with Renaissance wax for protection and stored standing up in a dehumidified gun safe ( kept around 45 % of humidity ). That is the way I did it when I stored a very nicely figured Anschutz walnut stock I had spare in the past.

Wax it and put it in a safe closet corner.
