Why is rust prevention important?
One of my favorite activities to do in my leisure time is to go to a shooting range, aim and shoot with my Glock pistol. Since the summer of 2018, me and my couple of friends went to a shooting complex to pursue this interest, we all took our guns and it was a great time until one of my friend’s gun AR15 started showing signs of not working properly, his gun was full of friction while shooting and often the bullets inside were getting jammed. As we inquired this concern to a professional at the shooting range he said that this gun has apparent rust problem and recommended oils to use to prevent rusting.With this new responsibility in my head I went home and researched for an oil to use for my gun and turns out there are many options to optimize, therefore, in order to ease that decision for you (in case you ever come across such problem) I have listed below 2 of the most famous and best gun oil for storage and rust prevention. I have personally used both and have never been disappointed by the performance of both.
- Hoppe’s 3060
As I mentioned this cleaner is a recommendation by a professional trainer at a shooting range, and this is also utilized by me and I am very happy with my decision of purchasing this oil over other cleaning oils. First of all this oil is produced by the brand Hoppe which is the Gucci of guns cleaners as they produce oils for guns which are high quality, highly performance and safe to use. The special ability of this oil is its versatile use as it works on all types of guns like revolver, assault rifles, pistols, rifles and shotguns. This makes this oil extremely convenient as you won’t have to change the oil if you do change your gun or you can give it to a companion if he doesn’t have any oil for his gun etc. This oil also has the ability to avoid buildup of dirt and debris which in turns prevents damage to the gun exterior and interior, similarly, it also prevents accumulation of carbon which can cause decreased accuracy, misfired shots and jamming.
- Break Free BFECLP4 CLP-4
Along with Hoppe’s 3060, the professional gunner also recommended Break Free BFECLP4 CLP-4 and after some research and personal experience I definitely know why. Once the HOPPE’s 3060 ran out of stock in the nearby shop so I bought Break Free BFECLP4 CLP-4instead and this didn’t let me down either. One of the reason which contributes to its fame is that it can lube, clean and preserve therefore it has versatile usage. A great advantage that comes from this oil is that since it’s a blend of synthetic oils it does not ever go bad or expire making this long lasting and durable. For convenience the bottle also comes with a spray top for easy application. The oil does a good job in removal of carbon residue and dirt.
