Click or tap photo to enlarge. The value of an old gun case is in the eye of the beholder. In July 2020 I paid $475 for the old Colt Case you see here. Was it worth it? Was it too much? I must say that I kind of second guessed myself on the purchase, until it arrived and I put my old 1962 Colt Python in it. At that moment, I felt good about the purchase!
Formulated with carnauba and beeswax, the Flitz rifle gun and knife wax makes it easy to keep your gun, knife or sword looking new. This is nonabrasive, solvent-free, no buildup and will not attract dust or wash off in the rain.
Polishes and protects against fingerprints, powder residue, rust, blood, water spots, salt deposits, lime deposits and tree sap. This is safe on gun bluing, polished, plastic and hand-rubbed wood stocks, stainless or nickel firearms and blades, and also safe on interior and exterior of the bore.
Why? Because in the past, it has been an opportunity give a friend a chance to shoot a gun they may never have again. That will likely change now that Colt is bringing the Python back in 2020. Over the years, I have to say that I've gotten more enjoyment out of watching others shoot this old gun, than shooting it myself.
When it comes to cleaning my old guns, I use extreme care in the selection of any product before it gets applied to my gun. I can't stress enough how important the cloth you use on these finishes are.
Use extreme care in cleaning the finish on the Colt Cobra for example. I have seen many examples at gun shows that appear to have thousands of tiny scratch marks from being wiped with the wrong kind of cloth.
Before I use a cloth or product that I have never tried before, I will usually test it on an old pocket knife first.
My old gun has never looked better. And using this wax is so fast and simple. Apply it and wipe it off before it dries. One more time....
