Well like the topic stated what??

Whats you favorite Gatling gun lube and where and how much??

How much do you break the Gatling gun down to clean it and everything every time or??

You folks that have made it to the final round of firing and owning a Gatling --- Whats your thoughts on the above??

I need to clean the chambers every time I test it. I also put a little moly grease on the ends of the sears where they rub on the cocking rings.

bruski
Thanks for that info. Cleaning the chambers does not sound like a lot of fun. Do you have to break the gun down or just quick Q-tip swab?
Lube anywhere else on the gun?

Anyone with any other thoughts on this. General lube anywhere?

I use a regular 22 rimfire rod with the brass brush from the front while the barrels are on TDC. Then push an oiled up patch through each. This only take a few minutes to do all of the barrels like this. You should wipe down your bolts with a silicone rag and put a dab of grease on the bushings and bearings. When you assemble your crank, put a little grease on the shaft and gears also.

A bump to the top to get a few more ideas. Bruski, Thanks for your thoughts.

If you need lube advise on 1919a4's or MG42's (semi auto only) I can make a few offers on those. Cleaning also.
