Basic springer lubing guide

Thanks Bob.

You oily devil, you slipped this one by us!  ;)  What're you gonna use to sticky it to the top?  Moly or some of that mystery lube?   ;D  Don't forget - that silicone oil is just the ticket for old leather piston and breech seals, too.  Can't forget great-Grand Pa's gun.  (I'd a just said Grand Pa but, after looking in the mirror, guess I've skipped a generation.)

Hi Red and you are right  ... but... though the silicone acts as a sealer, it does not condition the seal itself. To be used as a leather conditioner it also needs NeatsFoot oil or some similar leather conditioning product as part of the lubricant. Below is what I concocted years ago and it does an excellent job.
Charlie’s Leather Seal Sauce…… (Chamber Lube for leather seal guns)……

Mix 1 part NeatsFoot oil to 3 parts 100% Silicone Shock oil.  .  Example: 1 ounce of NeatsFoot oil and 3 ounces of Silicone Oil. Also, ¼ ounce of Teflon can be added if you have it. That will be enough to last for years if used just as a chamber/leather lube. Used only for guns having a leather seals.

 It's included in the "All about lubricants" file in the library.
