1)Take it apart after every shoot clean it whith rags cotton buds soaked in gun ooil or petrol

2)the local stuff any gun shop sells is good enuff wd40 is to fine mobil oil thinned out is also a good alternative like caltex

3)after every time you shoot yes EVERYTIME! like when you get it home take it apart and clean the hell out of it properly oil it then put it back togher again seal it up whith cotton cloth wrapped up in a big plastic bag for storage so it dos not get damp or moisture attaks that way even if you take it out after a month its fresh nicly oiled and ready to go.

I think 12Gaug has posted a very good thread on this topic sometime back. While one should oil one's guns adequately, over oiling should be avoided. It is not without reason that the gunmakers of yore used to say that over oiling is the gunsmith's best friend!
