An analogy that one of our lecturers offered was really insightful: "Would you drive your brand-new automobile if there was no oil in the engine?" The same may be said for a brand-new handgun. Before you can start firing, you need to clean and lubricate it. In addition, the majority of manufacturers provide detailed guidelines on how the firearm should be broken in.
Should I apply lubricant to the barrel of a firearm?
It is recommended that you grease your rifle after each time you clean it with chemicals. Once more, you will need a very light coating of oil. After applying any gun lubricant, you should always follow it up by passing a dry patch through the barrel twice. Before you fire the first shot with your firearm, ensure it has been well-cleaned, especially if it has been put away for an extended period.
