I have usually used a very light application of grease on the hooks of my doubles but I am aware grease is a dirt magnet. I am considering changing to a light coating of oil on the wear points. Main concern I have is oil tends to wick upwards to the head of the stock, even light coatings. (I store my guns muzzle down). What say you?

Grease for me, a thorough cleaning after my outing.

I use Tri-Flow, but have used grease too. Grease is more messy imho. Seems I never have a q-tip when I apply grease, so use my finger and have to wipe it off somewhere, and that’s usually on my pants since I usually don’t have a paper towel or rag handy either. crazy Tri-flow is better and easier for the unprepared.

I use a 50/50 mix of good quality automotive grease mixed with a light oil like 3 in 1. Wipe off each time the gun has been used and reapply sparingly.

Molycote by Dow Corning a graphite, does not attract dirt like grease or oil.

If a lube won't stay where you put it, there's no lube at all.

The part about grease attracting dirt and oil not doing so is a myth in my opinion.

I use grease on hinge pins, bifurctaed lumps, and bolts.

My mix is Mobil 1 synthetic grease mixed 3-1 with Permatex engine assembly lube. The tackifier in the assembly lube makes the mix stick to the parts like glue.

It's replaced after each use.

Grease on hinge pins, knuckle/forend iron joint, and bolts. I've seen galling on the knuckle from poor lubrication, and I don't trust oil there.

Either version of Mobile Synthetic. Knuckle, pin, lumps. Clean after use and repeat.

Best,

Likewise.

I saw one of the FN made 'Winchester' O/U's gall in that spot.

The one I saw was actually an old MX8. Shameful.

Didn't realize spellcheck had screwed up "galling". I corrected it.

Best, SRH
