Hi Kirk, isn't lithium grease and Remoil petroleum based?

Regards,
Richard

Not sure, Richard. I'll have to do a little research.

Rem Oil is indeed petroleum distillate:

Lithium grease is evidently not:

Hi Kirk, that Lubriplate link doesn't say it isn't petroleum based. Mineral oil is petroleum based and used in medical and food applications.

Hi, there has been a lot of discussion on Colt supplying extra cylinders for his revolvers. Most say that extra cylinders are a myth.


Dennis Adler's book "Colt Single Action from Paterson to Peacemakers, has many photos of original cased Patersons, most with and extra cylinder.
