Hello Gents!
The final addition to my "tiny" WWII Collection is a Type 99 Series 2 Nagoya (w/mum, AA, and matching#'s)

My question is, should I try to "steam out" some of the bumps and bruises on this "Old Warrior" or is it best to just "clean it up" and enjoy it for what it is; "warts and all"?
Is this a common practice among the Collectors of this Forum, or a historical taboo?

As long as I do not sand or re-finish the stock, I know it's everyone's opinion...and I will consider them all.

What is the best conditioner for the very soft, thin and pliable rifle sling?

With the Colt's, Winchester's, K98's and Enfields I've "adopted", I generally perform what I like to call a "historical restoration"; bringing the metal and furniture to the most original and best appearing state based on what I have before me...with the belief..."FIRST...DO NO HARM"...

I welcome all comments and opinions. I am eager to learn more about the "care and feeding" of the Type 99
all the best!

Thanks Gents!
The stock has no splits or cracks, never sanded and it appears to have it's original finish.
I'll just give it a good cleaning and it's "ready to rattle in battle"!
I appreciate the honesty and sincerity of your comments.
all the best!
Ron
