Thanks to everyone who has provided me with wise council regarding how to lube my new MX2000. I think that I have a much better understanding now. I do, however, have one last question about lubrication.

The bearing surfaces where the top lever turns in the receiver when you push the lever with your thumb and the locking bolt where it slides back and forth inside the receiver. What type lube do you use on these two locations and how often? ....thanks

Luvtrapguns, did you read through the 25 or so responses to the previous thread titled "Perazzi...use grease or oil?" by tractorboy?

In any case use the supplied grease or use oil - it matters little as long as it is cleaned often (after each shooting session) and well-lubricated.

Why would a Perrazi need lubricated any different than any other trap gun?? I'll answer it for you, IT DON'T.... I don't change my cleaning/lubriction practices with the change of make or model of gun. Common sense will see you thru.--Matt

I'll throw this in..as I always do.. A perazzi is not a car that burns oil.. You don't just add.. Clean the hinge pins and seats after every day of shooting and relube.. Soak the entire receiver.. even if you can't take it apart in mineral sprits a few times a year..to get the crap out of the receiver.. reoil..dry..and wipe down.. then put back in the stock once it's dried off.. Grease on the locking bolt and barrel ears.and pivot..(a dab on the forend lug is good too).. tri-flo on everything else.. Dan now uses Slip 2000 oil and grease..

Dan thought it was getting watery..which I concur with.. The older stuff was better than the new stuff.. Still.. I only ask any of my lube to work at most 8 hours for me.. 30 weight oil and axle greese would work as well as anything.. There are specialty lubes I personally use but would not want to start a pissing contest here..so I keep that to myself..
If one would follow my simple reccomendations..their gun would last alot longer. Remember.. any oil/grease attracts dirt.. Keep it clean.. Period..

PerazziBigBore is correct. Keeping the gun clean is much more important than the type of lubed used. I have many times made an excellent grinding compound by mixing the dust on my shop floor with a little oil.
