    Oil for revolvers ?

    I use CLP on semi auto rifles and pistols. That's what it's made for. Do y'all think I should use a lighter oil on revolvers?

    No.

    I've used Mobil 1 on (and in) revolvers for ever.

    I use Mobil 1 myself on the moving parts that rub. Ballistol everyplace else. On my blued guns I'll rub some Frog Lube on the outside, it's a decent rust preventative and it gives me a use for it since I stopped using it in other areas.

    I use any decent oil I have laying around. Weaponshield, Lucas Extreme, Slip2000 etc... Usually whatever I have handy in a needle oiler, anything except FrogLube.

    I used Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil on all my firearms. It's worked well for a lot of years.

    If I can reach it, light film of synthetic grease applied, if I can't, synthetic oil dripped on/in.

    Same for all my guns.

    This is one thing I favor with Ruger. You can easily lube them, either by removing the trigger group on the GP's or via the lube plug on the LCR's. I don't have a problem with taking a side plate off but it's not for the average gun owner. Ballistol spray is also a decent choice if you want to "flood" the internals from the hammer area.
