I use Clenzoil on most everything, even the felt pads. CLP should be just fine as well. Simple green is great for removing oil/grease from parts but I have never used it on the gun itself. Not sure it would hurt it though. The fumes from full strength Simple Green affect me some but nothing like a Meth Lab will. We've lost a couple guys to medicals from lab busts too. Hope yours isn't as severe and you get back out there as soon as possible.

TSMG's love oil.
BTW, do you wear glasses?
I once made a special paste of Moly disulfide, graphite, and synthetic oil to coat the inside of the receiver on my WH gun. to break the moly into the metal pores, the gun muct be run.
A TSMG , well oiled in NOT a gun you want to operate while wearing a white shirt, especially if there is moly and graphite in the mix. The blow by from the pilot bushing holes always messes up your galsses or gets spots on your shirt.
Kinda like the time I experimented with making the Sproinnngggg go away from an AR 15 buffer tube by putting greas insde the buffer tube. The top stock screw has a little drain hole that splots grease all over your shoulder.

It works great for copper fouling, but that seems to be about it.

|Jim, this is a stupid question since probably freezing to you is 68 degrees but have you ever noticed Tetra Gun lube slowing down the action in colder temps? I used to use it, and it really seemed to slow the action below freezing. I use Clenzoil now and no similar result...|
I wish I could slow it down.
Actually, I really have not been out shooting with the temperature under 55 degrees.

Doug, Yeah Ive started to have to wear glasses and I've learned that the lube splatters all over them. Oh well, sometimes you have to suck it up when your having fun blasting away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Colt T-6 lube is an overpriced thin white grease in a little pressurized can so the lube come out foamy.
Reduces splatter and may slow the ROF.
Worked okay at about 25 deg F on 24 DEC 2004.
Don't know if T-6 would be any good on a Blish lock equipped Thompson or not.

I think I'll order the case of bottles, I hate running out of stuff.
