Hey gus, I really like the beech stock on my new TX200HC. I was wondering if there is something to help protect the wood in the -5 + temperatures I deal with while shooting, or is anything even needed for this? Any help appreciated, I've only ever owned synthetic guns. Thanks.

Just wipe it down as you usually would to get rid of fingerprints, oil etc. Wood stocks have been used in cold weather for a long, long time.

Ballistol is awesome for wiping down wood and metal. Very handy stuff.

I know you got the 200 use it but when hunting in the bush and adverse weather leave it home where it's nice warm and dry, take the 97 instead.
Mine are all wood every time I touch them I wipe them down with ballistol

Thanks for the help guys. I need to get ahold of some Ballistol. Thanks HW777 for your advice! I knew I got the Blackline for some reason :lol:. My TX200hc will take more of a backseat this winter. Its pretty darn freezing out here.
