    Thanks for the article...

    Wouldn't you know it, though. They didn't test what I use for cleaning my firearms...Clenzoil.

    What is this "cleaning" you speak of?

    I only vaguely recall the last time I cleaned one of my guns.

    now something to consider, this was over just 3 days. the wd40 does not last long in my opinion as it tends to evaporate. for long term protection you mght want to consider something else. but for years it was what i used to wipe down my guns after a day in the field. not the action mind you.

    Didja ever compose a post, then preview it and forget to post it? :roll2: Anyway, thanks for the link - good read.

    I've used WD-40 for years on my rifles. Works GREAT! But I do make an effort to keep it away from optics and you certainly want to keep it well away from any caps/primers. I always use pressurized air to blow off excess. There used to be some problem with WD "gumming up" a little but I've not seen that for a very long time.

    GoGOP, go clean yer guns! :D

    Good stuff and a good point Underclocked. I remember several years ago police agencies being informed about WD40 and ammo.

    I use lots of WD40 and also have some Tetra and Tri-Flow on hand.
