Once you clean your guns what do you use as the final oil coating? Do you spray or apply with a rag?

Ranger, I haven't heard much of Ballistol on this forum, but it is the only oil I use. I thought that it was a bunch of exageration when I was first heearing about it, but I tried a can that I picked up at a gun show. I became a believer. I wouldn't even consider using anything else. I get a can of liquid, 2 large aresol cans and 2 or 3 of the little cans. The last coat I spray on, sometimmes I wipe it down, sometimes not, it will leave a thick coat instead of just running off like oil, sort of like thin cosmoline, but you can wipe the excess off with just a cloth any time you like.

Cheyenne Ranger,
What Butler Ford45 said. After you use this stuff a couple of times, it builds a protective coating that soaks into the pores of the metal and rust will be a thing of the past. I have wiped my guns down with Ballistol after a match in the rain, left them in the case for a couple of weeks and there was no rust when they were taken out for cleaning. I realize that this kind of treatment is wrong but sometimes I get lazy or tired or distracted or just plain busy. For the past two years I have not used any other product to clean or oil any of my guns. An added bonus is that leading in the forcing cone is lessened and what is there cleans up much easier.
:grin: :grin:

4 .oz Murphey's oil soap to 1 gal. water for BP clean-up. Dab of Murphey on cylinder pin. Break-Free on smokey-less guns.IMHO :)

:D Been using Ballistol in my bullet lube since way back.... it flat out works

Buffalo Gold

8 oz. purified beeswax
4 oz. coconut oil bar
4 oz. ballistol

You get a nice wet star at the end of your barrel and fouling stays very soft.
