    I have been using "Lucas Red N Tacky" for years. It has worked great on all my

    guns including TM-1, BT-100, Browning Broadway and BT-99's.

    It is available at Auto-Zone.

    Try it you will like it.

    Best method for lubing TM1.

    A couple drops of 20/50 motor oil. Wipe the pivoting parts with a clean cloth after use.

    I use a loupe and bright light to inspect the surfaces that slide. If there is a burr developing no oil on earth will make it get better. If an irregularity is found, deal with it at once and no harm will come of it. Ignore it at your peril.

    To MDMIKE & others RIG is not a lubricant, its a protector--I use super lube , grease & oil on all my guns--it works for commercial marine lubrications our guns are a piece of cake, compared to the abuse & loads fishing boats get.

    SuperLube is good stuff. I used to sell it when I had a hardware store. I'll go out in the shop and find a tube or two this morning. Again, thanks for the heads up......

    When you purchase a new Perazzi, Krieghoff, Blaser or Seitz, you will find grease, not oil for lube in the case. incinerate em!

    tetra-gun teflon in a tiny tube, Super lube in a 14oz stick. I use both. actually, I make a special home brew grease-type lube that I have had amazing results from but thats a different story.

    SUPER LUBE only. My Ljutic has about 10,000 rounds thru it and the bluing on the hinge pin still looks like new. Same for all the surfaces where the receiver rubs against the foriron. Gun is still as tight as new with all rubbing surfaces being very smooth with almost a polished look. I wipe out all grease and relube every time I use the gun. I also use TRI FLOW (FLON) on the hammer and trigger pin pivots and other internal sliding surfaces. Marc

    635 G, RIG grease is definitely a lubricant as well as preservative, as are most greases. The current distributor of RIG, Birchwood Casey, describes it:


    "RIG Universal Gun Grease is a SUPERIOR firearm LUBRICANT and preservative."
