Hi everyone, I'm Gabriel. I live in New York. I ejoy fishing and hunting.
What do you guys use to prevent rust on your firearms? I ask because I finally retrieved my rifle Saturday from the in-laws. It had been sitting in a gun case in their basement under a bed, and with temperature fluctuations it wasn't the ideal location. Of course, when I got home I noticed the outside of the barrel had some light pitting. I gave it a good wipe down with some Rem Oil which seemed to do the trick. I also took out the magazine and gave that a light cleaning with Rem Oil as well as parts of the breech. I didn't over-do it, I just applied a couple of drops here and there to a rag, wiped away the dirt/residue and then re-wiped with a clean rag. I know there are mixed reviews of Rem Oil so I was curious what you guys use to wipe the outside of your guns with to prevent rust. I do have a can of breakfree CLP but i've heard good things about Hoppes #9 as a cleaning agent/lubricant.
I plan on buying more cleaning supplies, such as a single piece rod, bore guide, jags, gun vise, etc., but since i've never cleaned a bolt-action rifle before I don't know where to begin. Are there any decent youtube videos out there that give a detailed tutorial on how to clean a bolt-action rifle?
