Default solvent/oils

How do you guys run your HK's? I put very little oil on the barrel and a couple drops in the frame. My barrel seems its wearing kind of fast on the outside. Am I supposed to apply alot of oil on the barrel?

I noticed my barrel was wearing a lot faster than any of my glocks ever did. I lube it the same way as a glock so I too am wondering if I need more lubrication on the barrel.

Try adding a really thin coat of Tetra gun grease or Mil-Comm TW-25B grease on the outside of the barrel where the wear is occurring.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

What is wearing is the surface finish, not the barrel---I lube all my guns with BreakFree CLP---they all exhibit finish wear in different spots---I am not concerned.

I am a strong believer in the AMS Oil synthetic greases, (been using the stuff for over 20 years on many different guns) they maintain their viscosity in every environment I have been in with mine...

from MI -20 to AZ 115+ left the HK sitting in my car (AZ) and the gun was so hot I could not touch it but still the greese kept it's consistancy!!!

Just a light coating on all the load bearing surfaces... n they are great on keeping the mags rust free....
