I'm wondering how you guys keep your bolt action C+R's lubed? Specificly the bolt. I've got a Mosin and a K31. Do you use CLP on the bolt, or some kind of grease?

I use tri flow and have had no problems and it works really well.

I just use the Ed's Red that I clean with.

Rule of thumb for milsurps. Oil the bolt action rifles and grease the semi autos. I use Rem Oil, EEZOX, or any good gun oil. CLP wold be fine, but IMHO EEZOX provides better protection.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've been using Break Free on my Mosin. I just got the K31, and there was grease in the bolt (not cosmo) which just made me wonder. Thanks.

Oil: a quality synthetic. Most "gun oils" are overhyped and overpriced.

Grease: a quality lithium grease for disc brake bearings.

Don't use to much.

I don't put much stock in "boutique" lubricants when it comes to non full-auto weapons.

Might've been oil sometime in the fifties

I use FP-10 on the bolts of Mosins, Enfields, and Mausers without an issue.

Remove firing pin from bolt, spray on CLP, re-assemble bolt.

Another rule of thumb: If it slides, use grease. (rear of bolt lugs)
If it pivots, use oil. (trigger pins)
