Boy do I feel stupid now!!! 10W40 in my previous post was suppose to be WD-40. Don't use 10w40. It won't hurt anything but sure won't clean out the wax! :?

Irishman: I began to wonder about that, but my intention and thought was on wd40. (a early onslaught of a senior moment I suppose.) The President of a Gun club I belong to, had suggested soaking barrels in transmission fluid after the fire we had to remove any residue of smoke and water from the fire we had last spring. He stated it's great for that purpose.

Hey Lester:
I believe that you are referring to the wheelbarrow incident that W.O.W. brought up on the other thread. No one was hurt.

I like talking to myself cause I always get the answer I want from Me!

We ride for the brand!

I use a bronze brush to get the wax out of the barrel and then run a patch with break free on it and last I run an oil patch through the barrel. i also do this with the cylinder. In a match I clean after each round. In practice I clean about ever 30 or 40 rounds.

I'm new to Cowboy Fast Draw but I have been collecting, loading and shooting most of my 65 years.
I use Gun Scrubber or Powder Blast, q-tips, nylon brush if needed and Remington spray oil.
Gun Scrubber blows everything into the sink and dries fast.
I don't want any water near my guns.
My favorite oil on just about everything is Supco MO-98.
It has "the original zoom spout" and it holds up to high heat.
Designed for high speed electrical motors.
It's my go to lubricant.
WD-40 is a penetrating oil. I don't want my lube penetrating the surfaces.
I had bad experiences with WD-40 promoting rust.
Penetrating oils are for cutting metals.
WD-40 makes a "long Term Corrosion Inhibitor" but it doesn't flow well and it bubbles up but good for marine applications.
Jus sayin.
