    Engine oil and axle grease were recommended when these guns were in service, hell slap some crisco on it if you want, the guns don't care.

      That's great and all but wd40 isn't a lubricant

        It is though, just doesn't last, so you have to keep up with it. Which is fine because it's cheap and plentiful.

          It actually is, just don't rely on it regularly

          Any liquid will lubricate a mechanism somewhat until it dries or evaporates. That doesn't mean you use any liquid. Oil or grease of some kind should be used.
          You can use wd40 to clean your guns. and I thought this was common knowledge but apparently PrepHole is dumber than I expected

            It's just a thin lube, is it optimal? No but it comes in an aerosol spray so you can blast nooks and crannies on sloppy old shit that's been around for a century.

              It's not a matter of being optimal. It's literally the wrong tool for the job.

                Thin lubes have short CH-chains which cause extrem high evaporation which means its flashing of from hot steel like alcohol. Thats the main problem with WD40. Its also free from EP/AW so a motor oil is 100x better on that guns. They have good AW,some EP but the oil is heavy and minimum god enouth to pass car needed test

                It comes in spray form for free and is around farm/workshops by the case so it's easy to toss in the box before you go to the range. Would a spray bottle full of motor oil be better? Sure, that's extra steps though.

    some people just have more money than sense.
    I met a guy with a tricked out precision rifle at the range. besides being a terrible shot, his bolt was also terribly gritty. I asked him what he used for lubrication and he replied he never added any lube beyond what it came with from the factory. with his permission I put a thin coat of lithium grease on it and he was astonished how smooth it suddenly was.

    Should you use WD-40 as a lubricant?
    While WD-40 does have some lubricating properties, it is not a good lubricant and should not be used for this purpose. Using it on anything that needs proper lubrication (bike chains, treadmills, garage doors, firearms etc.) will not give you the results you want.

    The main reason for this is that only a fraction of WD-40 is made up of lubricants. And these are only light mineral lubricants, unsuitable for any serious friction or heat. Machine guns have lots of very serious friction and heat

    The rest of the product is made up of compounds that aid penetration. These also have lubricating properties, but because they are volatile compounds that evaporate over time, their effect does not last.

    On top of that, both the application of WD-40 and its evaporating components dissolve and displace existing lubricants, like lithium grease or graphite.

    It's hard to choose a product that would be worse for firearms. Let alone machine guns.

        Does pouring salt water on a dirty/gummed up gun work to lubricate it? Well, sure. It might improve cycling temporarily. Maybe free up the action if it's sticky.

        But should you? When there are plenty of much better options for lubricants? No, and you know it.

    Spray lubes are very convenient. Liquid or grease requires you to disassemble. Use your head, gay.

      >Spray lubes are very convenient.
      Yes they are. And Machine Guns are very expensive. Why you would use WD40 on them instead of a actual good lube is baffling.

      >Liquid or grease requires you to disassemble.
      I mean, you could use spray on grease, or spray on liquid oil. Field stripping a gun and lubricating it is hardly a hassle.

      >Use your head, gay.
      Irony.

          Never said they had tight tolerances. They'll obviously benefit from good lube. WD40 is shit.

    I went to Knob Creek for many years.
    WD-40 was really really common on the machine gun line. Guys would rip belts out of an M2 or MG42 or 1917 or whatever. When done they'd open the action / top cover / whatever and squirt a little WD-40 in there. Really, really common.
    And it worked.
