I’ve lost my small tube of grease, which I use when cleaning the gun. Can I use Vaseline, instead?
Although Vaseline feels like a good quality grease, in engineering terms its lubricating qualities are pretty poor.
There is also some evidence that, in the long term, it absorbs water.
I suggest that next time you are in a gun shop you buy a little tube of proper gun grease to use on knuckles and choke tube threads.
Otherwise, use the grade of mineral grease used for packing bearings.
