Thanks for the update.
When installing the replacement, lube it prior.

if you are going to be working on guns, then you need to get some Kano Kroil.

i use it for cleaning surface rust, cleaning and lubing triggers, a bore solvent and for getting stuck parts to free up.

as a mechanic, i have used a lot of different penetrating oils over the years, and Kano Kroil is one of the best i have used so far.

I hate using Kano Kroil !!! I wish it wasn't the best there is. So I am stuck with it.
