Default Should I oil?

So I stripped down my Winchester 94 and did a deep clean on it. I pulled the magazine spring out and cleaned the tube (which it DESPERATELY needed). Im wondering...should I run a patch of remoil thru the tube to protect it like you do the barrel?

Answer your own question?

But yeah, it wont hurt anything and can only benefit your rifle.

I kind of assumed it wouldn't hurt...didn't know for sure if there would be any ill effects on the ammo or anything. I didn't think there would be...but better safe than sorry.

It shouldn't hurt your ammo.

After running oil, use a dry patch or 2. Oil on a cartridge is not good! It will create issues!

Yep. You might also want to spray your spring down with a light coating of a gun oil or rub a very light coat of your oil of choice on it.

So run a patch with oil on it, let it sit a bit then another to get any excess off? This was kinda my plan to start with but wanted to ask first.

Pretty much run a dry patch or 2 through so there is no residue. I use CLP or FP10 as they don't leave petroleum behind. I'm not a fan of oil, period. To cold here.

Awesome! Thanks for the help. Now the intimidating task of reassembly.
