I can vouch for that. I started the Johnsons wax 5 or so years ago on a 94 Win. thuty - thuty. Striped it & cleaned it of all traces of oil & then coated every part with Johnsons wax, it is also acting as the lube. No trouble, no rust, easy clean & wipe over more wax & polish off excess. Rained in sweated on & carried on the dirt bike hot & cold, proved the value of Johnsons wax to me.
I now use no oil on my guns. just some moly engine assembly grease on sears & hinge pin.
Happy happy happy.

I have used Johnson's for so many years I can't even guess how many. Never an issue with it. I have also used Renaissance, and I believe it may give a bit warmer glow when polished off, but in no way believe it to be superior to Johnson's for sheer protection from the elements. None of it replaces oil and grease for their prospective uses. I use the waxes to protect a gun's exterior, short term, from rain and water.

You have any ejector doubleguns?

I put RW on any gun going into the safe and I'm not sure when it will be coming out. I leave the haze on the metal and buff off when removed from safe.

Not good for weather proofing though.

Yes Stan I do have an ejector doublegun.
It is a Skimin & Wood & works just fine, throwing both empties in time & landing together.

I used to use Johnson's Paste Floor Wax on the wood of my oil-finished guns, but I found that it got extremely gummy in hot and humid conditions, even when buffed to a microscopically thin coating. I feel like I should start waxing some of them again but don't want the gumminess. For those of you using Renaissance or Meguiar's in really hot climates (like southern Arizona, 115+ with 75%+ humidity), have you had any problems with the wax getting sticky? My guns are all using guns.

That's odd, Replacement. I've never noticed that gummy condition, and I hauled an old double in my pickup on the farm for many years, in Georgia heat and humidity, waxed with Johnson's.

Thanks, Stan. It did seem odd, but it happened over several seasons on a few guns that I had waxed.

I just ordered a small tin of Renaissance to test it. We'll be hot around here through Thanksgiving. Not unusual for the duck opener to be near 100. I ruled out the Meguiar's because even Meguiar's says it is not "body shop safe," which probably means it contains some silicone.

I have been meaning to test some of the auto waxes like turtle or nu-finish.

Virtually all commonly available auto waxes contain silicone, which can/will cause problems if you ever decide to refinish the wood. Meguiar's, as an example, has a section on their website that lists their "body shop safe" products, and none of them are waxes. Lots of polishes and glazes, but no waxes. Your safest bet in automotive waxes would be pure carnuba.
