What Does Everyone Use For Tsmg Lube?
Posted 12 September 2004 - 02:41 AM
Wondering if something a little heavier than CLP or Ballistioil (*sp?) is appropate (I tend to use either on the modern guns ... in part as called for in HK Tech Manual ... plus use a little heavier 20mm cannon oil with the CLP on the high pressure / moving parts).

But if I can find some locally I want to give Clenzoil a shot!

1. Scrub with a copper wire brush, the bore, exposed surfaces, disassembled magazines and the compensator with hot soapy water (Dawn dishwashing soap)
2. Rinse with very hot water and dry with a hairdryer.
3. Clean the bore with GI bore cleaner and swab dry
4. Clean the bore and other areas with Shooter's Choice and dry with clean patches, in the action blow out with gunscrubber.
5. Re-oil all parts with CLP and light grease on the bolt.
This way you will never get any corrosion when using corrosive ammo.

This is starting to look interesting, looking foward to the thread when get back from shooting (sorry to say not the M1 as my SOT could not make the shoot ... nor anyone else with a TSMG).
For general cleaning still like Hoppies #9 (Shooters Choice if primary the bore of bolt guns) followed by large amounts of solvent to flush (mineral spirts by the gallon or gunscrubber/NAPA brake cleaner (same chemical if you pick the correct brake cleaner at quarter the price).

I carry a 50/50 mix of alcohol & ammonia to the range, and while the barrel is still warm, clean with this solution first, then with all other regular bore cleaners, ie, after shooting WWII 45 surplus......
I constantly shoot old mil/surp in my 98ks, and treat them the same for cleaning............jw

Like the grease on teh bolt, will have to check the tech manual (when I get it) and see what is listed.

BUT with all you folks using Clenzoil, I'll have to give it a try. Does it taste better than CLP??? (I don't know about the rest of you but I always overoil and the 28 pumps it out the buffer pilot hole in a fine mist for the first 60 rounds or so....Breakfree tastes AWFUL!!!)
I don't know if I'm better off overoiling or should maybe cut back a bit??

I could not tell the difference between Wipe-Out and M-Pro 7.
Others may have differing experiences.
