Break Free is a synthetic. I've never tried it but I know first hand what petro based oils wil
do.Didn't know that. Could be the reason why I haven't had any problems

If you use a regular gun oil never leave any in the bore. Black powder fouling and petroleum

Are there any markings on the butt plate?

Loaded up, and shot, a dozen rounds, using Winchester and Wolf primers. No problems.Looks like
it was the primers. The Rem 1 1/2 and Magtech 1 1/2 sp primers will be used in .38 and 9mm
