Hello!

Just now I looked at this pistol after being in the safe for many months. I did use Renaissance Wax on it. A dark grey patina is now on the pistol. What happened? What should I do?

Note that the white background makes the patina look darker.

:(
This is the one you have posted elsewhere. I think it looks fine, as is. Just about the right darkness and contrast overall. You can remove the wax with kerosene, if desired. Kerosene evaporates within 24 hours.

Thank you! :)

Yes, I did post the pistol in another thread. However, those were old photos, with my concern over worth. Now I just wanted to see if others had the same experience with their pistols irrespective of model. .The current patina shocked me. FWIW :)
