Twice now I have purchased new Italian made pistols and found the metal parts were coated in a sticky oil and wrapped in plastic. I seems to be about the same as the real sticky Stihl bar oil for chain saws. Would that work for long term storage? Wood removed of course.

I don't know but I hate the thick Stihl bar oil. It doesn't lubricate well in the cold.

I keep my saws and oil in a heated building and have no problems with that oil.Also if you go to a Stihl dealer you will see that they also have a winter blend.

I use synthetic for those that have over 50k rounds through them.

I use the bar oil du jour from central tractor, walmart, home depot, or lowes in my stihl and echo.(the latest gallon on sale was mtd brand?) Havn't had any issues (I cut at least 4 cords per year for the last 20 years or so.)

I think it would work if coated completely.Including the inside of the barrel.I wasn't going to answer but man this took a quick left turn.From gun storage to what works in a chainsaw.The coating they came in was probably some form of cosmoline.
