    Lever Action Storage ?

    Hey guys -

    I am trying to help my dad store some of his old lever actions. I was pulling one out and I noticed new scratching in the foregrip because of a front sight of a neighboring lever actions. I know these are tools and I'm not to worried, but I would like to keep these nice for my dad -lots of sentimental value for him.

    I would normally throw it in a silicone gun sock, but idk with all the wood how that would workout in the long run. Any special considerations? I've never had to deal with wooden stock firearms lol.

    I keep all my marlins in MidwayUSA gun socks. No issues.

    Silicone impregnated gun socks.
    I keep my old Wincester LGs in those, in the safe(s).

    A silicone gun condom is a good way to prevent safe rash.

    I also use Bore Store covers for anything needing extra protection over a gun sock.
    Much thicker, like a heavy fleece jacket. heavy enough to be used as a gun case.

    All my long guns get the silicone impregnated gun socks on to prevent dings and blemishes that might occur. I agree with previous posts about Bore Store covers... they offer extra protection and I use those on all my handguns. I am careful to wipe down the firearms and keep skin contact to a minimum as they are inserted...some people have skin oils that can be harsh on delicate finishes.

    If you aren't a fan of silicone, here's one without:

    I have one for a wood stocked gun I don't want to ding.
