protection

What are y'all "wiping down" your guns with? Metal and wood?


I was "taught" oil rag the entire gun...

After refinishing a few stocks I don't know about oil...especially on stocks...

I've tried wax and I really like it...it looks great..it CLEANS good..and it seems to actually protect better than oil...

Am I missing something? Or is wax the way to go?


If so...what wax are y'all using? I've honestly used car wax...not sure if there are "better" waxes etc?

Re: protection

For many years I have used G-96. It works better than anything else I have tried.

Re: protection

G96 on all none moving parts break free on moving parts, graphite on hinge pins. Never oil wood, it is not good for it.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: protection

My dad and I have been wiping down our guns with a rag soaked in triflo for years. I works well and I kinda like the smell

Re: protection

I switched to Ballistol a few years ago, great stuff.

Never knew a man not to be improved by a dog.
