I read this thread with great interest, and I just wanted to offer some observations based on my own experience with the product. Renaissance wax works well on wooden firearm stocks, provided you use it judiciously. Too much will eventually create a cloudy effect and possibly suffocate the wood. In small quantities, however, it does a good job of restoring luster and protecting.

The wax can also be used as a conservation treatment on the metal components of firearms, but I would only do this to a weapon you have no intention of firing. I enjoy shooting my personal collection (that's half the fun of owning a milsurp gun, in my opinion) and I just store those weapons with a thin layer of regular gun oil to prevent rusting. For guns that will never see action again, a thin layer of Renwax will help enhance the appearance of the finish and also form a good barrier against moisture. As with stocks, do not apply excessively. A firearm that is stored in good temp/RH conditions shouldn't need more than a quick coat every other year or so.
