    Sears Roebuck & Co. Household Oil (essentially the store brand of 3-in-1).

    And I have the unique experience of having oiled my guns with it* in 1993, putting them in the safe and then suffering neurological problems that kept me from doing anything with my guns except for rare, short inspections from one year to another until 2014 and those guns suffered NO rust of other degradation.

    I know that in the chart in one of the other posts, 3-in-1 didn't provide protection in that test for 24 HOURS. But in the real world test of preserving firearms in a common gun safe, 3-in-1 worked perfectly for 21 YEARS

    ------------------

    * The barrel of my Mini-14 was oiled with motor oil in the belief it was less likely to "migrate" while the rifle was stored vertically. This proved to be a correct belief.

    Buy a quart of Mobil 1 whatever W30. It will last you probably a lifetime.
