if stainless is run dry it's more likely to gall than standard steel. That needs to be repeated often! My personal choice is Hoppes cleaners and oils.
XD, I'm not trying to pick a fight but, I've been told for a long time to not let WD40 any where near any firearm!My Grandfather swore by Hoppe's being from the Eastern Seaboard where corrosion is everyday. The rest of my family used Hoppe's as well. So thats what I use on my long guns. However I only use wd40 on my pistols. During firing it dries out but it still stays smooth enough not to allow any carbon build up... But I do clean prior to range time & immediately after...
Shooter, I'm an old guy that feels he got old by listening to others mistakes. I am willing to hear the pros and cons on WD40 as an Alaskan we have 3 things for almost anything. "If it is suppose to move and doesn't WD40, if it moves and ISN'T suppose to DUCT TAPE, if its out side and you want it inside BLUE TARP!^^^ Yes...you are !! ^^^
I've been waiting 19 posts for this age old argument to pop up...
