Lubing the Bolt Action Rifle

In Blog by Rich8 Comments

Today’s discussion is going to center on the proper lubrication of the bolt action rifle. I’ll save you some of the surprise and mystery, it’s a lot less complicated than some people think. Really there are only a few key points of the bolt action rifle that need to be lubed to ensure proper function of the weapon. Keep in mind that lubrication, whether you use grease or oil or something in between, tends to attract dirt and grit.
