    Despite what some here say about grease, I use Lubriplate 130A on my firearms. I spend my time between 3 places, Pennsylvania (home), New Mexico ( Whittington Center ) and the Florida Keys ( son is stationed there). I’m everywhere from freezing to the high desert to high heat, humidity and salt water. When in New Mexico it seems like the oil will stay on the gun for a few days then it will be dry / be gone. I’ve tried Slip, Militech and good old Mobile 1. Same result.

    In the Keys, the grease stays. Gun maintenance is paramount down there. It seems like I have to wipe my guns down every other day. I sweat.

    Here at home, well, right now it’s in the 20s, and my guns keep chugging right along. I did have some concerns about Lubriplate in extreme cold. When it got in the single digits over night, I kept my one AR and a 19X outside. The next morning they fired normally.

    I’ll stick with 130A. It stays where you put it and doesn’t run off like oil on a holstered gun.

    Plus, I also use it on my bicycles bottom bracket!


    ETA: I realize this thread is for revolvers. I should add, I usually have my 340 with me when I travel and I do like to take my 686 with me, because, well, I like 357s!

    I oil like Carguychris does; however, I don't remove the side plates from my five Smith & Wessons often.
    I've never removed the sideplate of my Model 18 in nearly 4 years of ownership, and it accompanies me on almost every range trip.

    I only use a few drops of light kroil on the lift hand, cylinder stop, and sides of the hammer. Mainly because it's just pure oil and doesn't contain additives if it evaporates. Then wipe the revolvers down with a gun cloth sprayed with WD 40 specialist, long term corrosion inhibitor for storage after cleaning. CLP seems to leave a slight residue long term unless it's wiped down regularly.

    I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned Slip2000. It is becoming increasingly popular . I've used it for years and it has many attributes that make it a good choice for revolvers. It is unaffected by cold, doesn't thicken with time and works at the molecular level by entering the pores of the metal making it easier to clean your Roscoe over time.

    Oil for revolvers ?

    I follow this and it has worked flawlessly for years. I order the oil direct from the MFG.

    For those that think you know better, well, you donít.
