All-natural lubricants and those that can even been consumed as food. I’ve tried many of these products on a large variety of firearms including the famous FrogLube. Most of them work well and have large followings of fans, but I’ve decided that they aren’t for me. Now you’re probably asking “why," because I said most of them work well, right? Well, for me it comes down to price. Do I really need to spend $40 for a gun oil that I can put on my pizza as I clean my rifle? I think I’ll opt for the FREE Tactical Honey
that’ll get the intended job done just as well. All I had to do was pay the shipping cost!
Thing 4: A good gun oil must migrate. No, It has nothing to do with birds flying south for the winter. Migration is the capability of the lubricant to reach nearby areas that are difficult to lube. For example, the pivoting point of a hammer. A good oil will migrate to that pivot point, resulting in a well lubed mechanism. Be sure to observe the viscosity of the oil before purchasing. Most firearm enthusiasts pass this up when looking for a new oil. Don’t be that guy!
Thing 5: Find yourself an all-in-one cleaning and lubricating gun oil. Not only will this save you money, but it’ll also save you a whole lot of time. When it comes to cleaning my firearms, I typically have 3 major steps. I’ll start by wiping out any dirt and carbon build up. Then grab a square cloth patch with a few drops of Tactical Honey on each and wipe away any remaining dirt. After she’s all clean, I move to the lubrication step by just adding a drop of Tactical Honey on all of the wear spots. I rely on the migration of the oil to reach the surrounding areas.
Now, before I turn you loose, remember:
Cleaning and lubricating your guns regularly is far more important than what you clean and lubricate with.
