Lubricants and oils

Postby hy » Thu Dec 20, 2001 1:00 am

What lubricants and rust prevention oils is everyone currently using? I'm currently using G96 Complete Gun Treatment as a lubricant and Tuf Cloth to prevent rust.

I use Hoppes #9 lubricant to prevent rust, and breakfree to oil the action. This is because I keep #9 around the house for our firearms, and I have access to lots of BF due to us tax payers, not because they're the best. They work great for those purposes. RKBA!

Breakfree! It is all I use on my blue steel guns here in SW Florida for over 13 years and NEVER any rust, always smooth actions.

Breakfree CLP for cleaning and Militec-1 for lube and storing. It doesn't attract lint like most others.

I've always found a wipedown with Zoom-Lube to work extremely well. In case you look, there are two grades: machinery and high-speed.

The machinery grade is a light yellow, and I recommend it instead of the high-speed, clear, variation.

The container comes with a nice little telescoping spout to place oil, making oiling easier.

Keepin' it real...real sharp, that is.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. Hoosierdaddy, are you sure your post was not meant to be in the Penthouse forum?<img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
