i used WD-40 over 40 years ago to clean guns. never had any problem with using it. just the reason i don't use it anymore is that there are just much better products than WD-40 available. hell, i don't even use for a penetrating oil anymore. PB Blaster wis much better at breaking loose rusty and crusty bolts. that's what i use at work. in my little gun shop i use Kano Kroil for just about everything. much better product than WD-40.

I don't want a pimp feel to it, more of a light two tone to make an old gun a piece of art. I just don't know if nickel plating is shiny enough because i want a little reflection, but not a mirro finish, if any one has a good link to a close up of a nickel plated firearm that would be great can't find a close up on google.
Thanks

Where can you find a mosin @ 80 I have one and want to get another bu I only see them for like 175 and up. I am in CA which might explain that. But if you know of any place online please let me know .

I have guns that are pretty old that were cared for with WD 40 for many years They still look like new and have no unusual wear. I have a BAR that was made in the 1930's that I hunt with every season. It's in better than 90% condition. I have a super blackhawk that I left in the bottom of a boat all winter. The Ruger isn't in super good shape but it's not bad. I cleaned both with WD 40 until Remoil came out. At one point WD 40 was the most highly recommended gun cleaner/lubricant on the market. I use CLP to maintain my guns now because it is very easy to use.

part of the reason i don't use WD40 anymore is i just don't think it's the same composition as it was years ago. it won't even loosen rusty bolts very well anymore. i used it for many years with good results, but i refuse to use it anymore. there are just way better products than WD40 now.
