It is available with most arms dealers. Prices for a small bottle for army type oil PX 4 is Rs 100 in Lahore. Beretta oil about Rs 1000. and some cheaper ones as well.

In general oil use only lubrication not for cleaning, so go for a cleaner like BURNOX and WD40 type products...

use synthetic gun oil for final lubrication it also some time has rust removing quality so is great way to do normal to medium level rust and dust cleaning , am sure its available in market also i dont know if its available or not trying finding synthetic grease if you can a very very thin layer of it does magic and is non adhesive of dust and does not jam the weapon like normal Grease .


just checked my cupboard and the name of the oil is G96 synthetic gun oil its one of the only three oils approved by the highest us military r&d department i have found it working miracles on the gun .

Better to go for Nasa or Brunox and avoid Wd40 .

I have a hectic schedule taking care of very delicate blued gun finishes. Hoppes gun lubricating oil did not give the rust protection i require. I finally found break free clp with the otis kit. I use a little amount and it combats rust perfectly. Also it keeps a thin dry film on blueing so no dust sticks to it. It is good for a year (this is how long i have tested it and again i did not find any rust but i again oiled it lightly) also i keep silica gel with the guns. Therefore the combination of both is perfect. I have a brunox can, nasa rusto-nil can, belgium made perfects gun oil. But i have not used any of them yet as i am satisfied with break free clp. When it runs out then i will be forced to look at other options. Does brunox leave a dry film or a wet one that attracts dust?

After firing a weapon, it should be cleaned and oiled. As per the old procedure, one had to first use boiling water and flush it down the barrel a few times. Then followed by cleaning cloth pull through the barrel and finally oiling the barrel and metal parts. In 1989, a fresh policy was circulated which suggested that instead of using pull through and cloth excessively to clean foul deposits in the barrel, we should use oil soacked cloth ( Chindi ) and allow it to work on deposits. It will soften the residue in time and then make it easier to remove. Excessive wear and tear of barrel will be avoided. Also I find that oiling of metal parts hold on for longer periods if the weapon is covered in a layer of plastic sheet.

lubrication have a lot of options but it`s naccessory to know that how to safe/pack your gun after clean & lubricate.

if you use bretta oil or use local oil and leave your gun in open atmosphere , the lubrication will do not safe your gun .

if you clean your gun with any of mentioned lubrications & you are satisfied from that , then just safe your gun & enjoy your self

Well, it's your gun, so you can clean it however you want. I wouldn't use water on any of my guns, except my muzzle loaders, and then only once I have removed the lock and the stock from the barrel.

Storing guns in plastic, well, again I wouldn't do it to my guns. Water condenses on plastic. If you have a problem with humidity, get a dehumidifier.

I use one of these kits. It is an armourer's kit, so it has everything (almost) that I'll ever need, but it's very expensive.

WD40 is good for cleaning, but it is very aggressive in long term of use. I never used it on firearms, but one of my PAP (SKS) bayonets was kept in cotton soaked with WD40. After year and half damage was obvious.

Plastic cases can be good for keeping weapons, but only if you put substance to dry air inside case. Plastic bags (like one you get in shop) are not good because of, as hounddawg said, water condenses. It would be best to oil them and warp with acidless paper or uncolored cotton.

Renaissance Wax is great substance for conserving all kind of metal, plastic, leather, glass, rubber, paper… surface. It is mush have for any collection. It is not expensive and you may get it in almost all shops those sales conservation products. But RW is used for conserving if you need weapon oil to lube and use your gun I would recommended Balistol oil. Many hunters here use it for their weapons. It is not expensive and do really good work.

francolino
15-03-2011, 05:48 PM
just use "Brunox" (OR any gd cleaning solvent) for cleaning residue and "Beretta Oil" for lubricating (leave a thin film only) after that ... you will preserve your firearm forever. I mentioned these two bec they are readily available. Others in general incl WD40 are crap in my opinion. They damage the gun rather than clean it.

Dear Assad Bro, I have been cleaning infact socked my Guns into petrol (After removing the plastic /rubber parts) then I use Carburator cleaner only cleaning Barrel inside. and then sock it in petrol.

But I dry then properily and after use NASA Rust-O-Nil to lubricate softly.......

This is what I am doing for years and on my every Hand Guns /rifels, But as Feancolino bro said, using "Brunox" & Beretta Oil is also a good method, some members do "Boil" barrel in clean /pure water to clean & dry.

I shared my personal experince with you, many members are keeping their Guns safe by different methods and most of these are good enougf to keep you wapon "Clean" out of "Dust & Rust".

I recommend not use WD40 on long term. Use only Brunox or better cleaning solvents that do not damage plastic parts and don't corrode the gun finish (bluing etc) like wd40 does. WD40 even when applied shd not be wiped off strongly with cloth. Let it dry out for 30 mins or plus and then apply thin film of a good gun oil thru an oiled cloth and put few drops of oil in critical moving parts. Other thing is WD40 also is coming fake in market. Source only England made original spray can if at all you are using it in regular season. But long term storage with it is not recommended in my opinion if u r a gun lover and like to care about ur guns in the optimum way.
And friends...plz do share your info about which brands of a good cleaning solvent that cut grease and cartridge residue like Birchwood etc are available in Lahore market? And where can they be sourced (dealers?). Thnx!

Bro, as per my understanding, transformer oil is ordinary napthanic oil which is mostly used as coolant. therefore I do not see any advantage in using such oil. plus its flash point is also pretty low (around 140-150C) for a firearm specific oil.

Skeeter60 Bro, Very ture in the next generation of Power Distribution system, Transformers are build up of different technology mostly air cooled based etc..............

I was also having some concerned using this Oil, as we use very little oil in our Guns and that to need to be of specific grade & dust resisting etc ............................this is not the case of transformer oil.

If you are using Brunox, no need to use Nasa Rust O NIL. And if you are using Hoppes No. 9 lubricating oil then no need for Otis Oil. Hoppes No. 9 gun powder solvent is a separate product altogether.
