I remember seeing a thread where someone on this forum did something similar but they were all locked down somehow with a clasp that went over the barrels and looked very secure.

Thanks and yes I glued felt in the cutouts.
Careful. I did just that. See my thread "Keeping guns from rusting"

Read your thread, good stuff. I'll keep my eye on that. I imagine it has something to do with where the rack/gun safe is located, as some of the comments on that thread seem to indicate

You can line the cutouts with soft rubber gasket material.
Cut a piece to insert in the floor frame too.

Steel against rubber won't cause an issue? Also, that combination won't hold any oil.

Anything touching steel will cause issues. You still have to take them out and clean/oil them, but the rubber doesn't hold moisture.
I guess there's no perfect solution.

Would any wax work? Say, candle wax or bees wax?
And why would want to wax your johnson?
