I'm very surprised this question is just now coming up. I can use grease or Militec gun oil.

I was cleaning my CZ-82 and thought this would be a good topic.

Then you can dry it in the microwave. Use a low heat setting.

Gun Nut, I was referring to lubricants like:

Lithium grease, dry silicone based lubricant, braek oil (yes -- spelled correctly), vaseline, wesson oil, crisco,...   

Why?  What did you think I was referring to?!   ;D

I will leave that to you to think about. I was just trying to go with the basic ones.

Just busting your chops, Gun Nut.  I just use Hoppes then wipe off any excess.

I like to use grease mainly because it stays where you put it and light oil on the outside of the gun. Now when it comes to long guns it is only grease, oil will soak it to the wood and destroy it.
