Is it a good practice to oil unblued surfaces of a gun when its going into storage for the winter? Like sides of mono blocks, breech face and bores. Also do plastic snap caps cause rust or pitting if left in a chamber? thanks, Dale

If you're concerned, use Break-Free Collector and be safe.

Gary,

I didn't see your test when originally posted. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing that. I use the Birchwood Casey Barricade myself.

Yep, Birchwood Casey Barricade (formerly called "Shield") remains my day-to-day favorite as well. Break-Free is a little heavier and does outperform it a bit though for long term storage. Less messy than RIG or other greases too.

Are you referring to Birchwood-Casey "Barricade" formerly called...<br>(...and renamed to minimize its sensitive association with another product.) <center>

GW22: Has it right on the Breakfree product, The military uses an almost the same product to use on their AR models + Garands.

Do not use WD-40 it dries out and offers little protection, but it does displace moisture, like spraying on sparkplug wiring on chrysler cars when it is damp and car won't start.

Well I couldn't get the break free collector at Dicks today but they had the Birchwood Casey barricade so I bought that. It sprayed out to heavy for me, so I sprayed it on a clean cotton patch and wiped it on the mono block and breech face. Seemed to work good that way, not a lot of extra to wipe off. Also it does make a gun smell the way it should lol. Thanks for the help Gary. Dale

Correction -- In my study, and in my post above I said Birchwood Casey's BARRICADE used to be called Shield. Actually it was formerly called SHEATH. So if you've got that, it's the same stuff and it works great as the study showed. Almost as good as Break-Free Collector.

Thanks Jim.

I have stored guns for years without having to redo them every few months. There are food storage systems available that will seal a plastic sleeve over your gun and vacume out the air. I take off the wood parts first and store them separately, oil the metal, vacume out the air and they are good to go. Be sure to pad any sharp edge so bag is not punctured. Marc
