    I've just opened up my Browning Broadway and it looks like the SST trigger needs some lubrication. Is lithium grease OK for this purpose? Thanks.

    Actually, the service manual said to use gun oil, so that's what I'll use.

    No it collects dust. I don't put anything on the trigger parts BUT if you have to try and get a electronic lube spray that is used on computers. Doesn't gum up the works.

    I use, very sparingly, a light grease on a few parts of my trigger. Only lubricate the parts that require lubrication. Lithium based grease is good grease. It is important to keep any lubed surfaces clean.

    trapshooter421- The spray you mentioned is an excellent cleaner (primarily acetone) but a very poor lubricant. In a computer, aside from the fan, few things move.

    On trigger parts I use a product called "Gun Butter". It was developed by some shooters that work as engineers at a large corporation here in the Northwest. Great product, doesn't thicken in the cold or run in the heat and best of all it does not attact dust.

    As for the pivot points on an over and under, STOS lubricant is pretty tough to beat.
