I use Remoil in the actions but for a wipe down I use 3N1. It's what my dad used until they came out with WD-40 and to me a gun just isn't clean unless it smells like 3N1.

I use mostly Rem Oil, but sometimes I'll use Hoppe's or Birchwood Casey.

 Hawg,
         I feel the same way about Remoil. I will tell you honestly, I have not seen 3&1 oil for years,but my dad swore by it.

I like Amsoil MP , MP stands for metal protectant.It has less solvents than WD-40 and more preseratives.  {?|

As far as preserving cast iron pots and cookware I use J.R. Watkins cooking spray . {?|

WD-40 isn't a lubricant, it's a water displacer. Dad used it on his guns for years and didn't even fire one to my knowledge in his last 20 years or so. I got them after he died and there was no rust and the actions weren't gummy just dry.

Been using G96 Gun Treatment for years. It is the only product that my first and second wife said smelled good.
Great stuff.

I wiped all the bluing off 2 ducking guns w/WD. Its dry out here we run swamp coolers all summer and only hit 30% over night in the house so the rust isn't a big issue . Its said of Hawthorne "after ya been here a while ya give up on dusting twice a week and just shovel once" so anything wet or sticky is no good here. I do use Mercon V in the modern guns on the insides . Although the jury is still out I'm liking Kroil. I started using it when I started casting ,so glad I had some knowledgable help. Its a penetrating oil and would actually lift the lead off the bore. Any way it stays pretty dry or at least pore deep w/o being wet. It seems to shed water fairly well also. I jacked an in the white/natural patina NHC Hawken bore w/Bore Butter so that ain't happening again.

I guess all in all I wipe everything down w/basicly Hoppes or Kroil.

I was talked into trying Gunjuice at the last gunshow. It is a drylube (goes on wet) that bonds withe the grain of the metal. Put it on once and just wipe down from then on. It's supposed to prevent rust too. Only 2 ways to get it off is to grind the top layer of metal off or heat above 800+ degrees. Haven't shot with it yet, but so far no rust.

I don't think I'd want anything like that. (^h
