    Black Rifles

  2. Lube for AR's

    Black Rifles

    Gun Cleaning
    I've been a gun cleaning nutcase since my dad showed me how to clean my first .22 rifle (I can still smell the Hoppe's). I have used many oils like 3-in-One, Hoppe's Elite, Rem oil, and several others. All have done the same thing over a very short period of time: dissipate, draw itself into one...
