    When I take the side plate off the right side of the 642 sometimes the cogs and springs & stuff are dirty & it looks like over "oiled" Should they be dry" or lubed with light silicon, or Hopp's or WHAT. Cleaned everything with good non-corrosive degreaser/oiler and just dabbed a little silicon liquid on triger slide on frame bottom. All else is dry. Should I be doing anything else.. Thanks

    Internals should be clean and lightly oiled with any quality gun oil.

    A drop of oil at each pivot point, then blown into the works with compressed air, if available.

    According to Alan Tanaka.

    I've been running one drop of oil down the hammer of non Centennial style revolvers for many years now and that's about the extent of my lubing. For 642/442 style guns I drip the oil through grip frame.
