Just bought a new AK and the manual says I need to finish the wood furniture with Boiled Linseed oil. My question is, can I apply the oil without taking the wood off? Will the linseed oil affect the bluing if I wipe off the excess? Don't really want to completely disassemble the gun if I don't have to.

The BLO will not hurt the bluing. You said that it's a new AK. You don't have to do anything. Forget the manual and the linseed oil.
