What type oil do you use on barrel and receiver and inside for lubrications, went to a little heaver oil in my Beretta AL 391 inside and stopped jamming also Home Depot has Fiskars seers # 356922 not bad for cleaning quail, easy cleaned and reasonable priced.
Thanks

Gun Oil I use Break Free CLP. I had a friend several years ago do a test with several swatches of clean metal and wiping a different oil or gun oil on each one, then leaving them in the weather to see which product provided the best rust protection. CLP won hands down. Been using it ever since.
Gun Grease I use any white lithium grease or marine white lithium grease.
I think a lot of people make the mistake of using oil on moving or rubbing parts that should instead have a thin coat of grease.
General gun bore cleaner I use "Eds Red". Nothing has worked noticeably better for me and having over 200 long arms I have tried a lot of stuff.

My father-i-law was a machinist and an expert gunsmith, he got me hooked on the Ed's Red and the marine white lithium grease decades ago. The Break Free CLP, that came around a few years ago, I was informed about it from an Army buddy.

I've been using Hoppes #9 & Rem Oil on my Remington 870 express that has seen all sorts of weather since i bought it new in 1994 and has yet to show any signs of rust or premature wear.

I do know that certain rust inhibitors/corrosion x can ruin bluing so be careful of what you guys use on your firearms.

I was part of an advanced military C&R gun collecting group long before there were internet forums. That combination of the original CLP/Marine Lithium Grease/Ed's Red has had a cult following for many years. Especially for those with a lot of working guns to maintain. up

Perhaps I have been lucky but I have never seen any bluing damage from corrosion-x and have been using it on guns a long time.

Same here. All I use on my guns is Corrosion X and have for a long time, no issues with bluing.

Hornady's one shot gun cleaner/lube is good, just do not look for it in the gun care area in most stores. Since it is from Hornady most stores put it in the reloading section.

Good point, definite difference between oil and grease. Many areas that are oiled should really be greased.
