    I have a 12-gun rack which some of the rifles are family air looms/antiques. I was wandering, besides putting oil on them, what can I put in the barrel and action to keep the dust and dirt out of them to preserve their look longer?

    Check out the silicone impregnated gun socks, They are not much money and they keep dust off the firearms and any moisture in the air from getting to them.

      Clean them 2-3 times a year, or like 25-06 said get the gun sock. there is also plastic packages that are vacumed that keeps out any moisture or dust, I seen them in the most recent cheaper than dirt magazine.

        I have to assume you want to keep those family heirlooms on display, so your best bet would be to enclose the gun rack with a glass front so you can enjoy looking at them without having dust accumulate, otherwise you'll have to do as montananative suggested and clean them several times a year.

          If you don't want to clean then get a glass case. But hey, sometimes cleaning them brings back memories etc. so think about that as well. I can't go a full year without cleaning my guns even if they have not been shot.

              Rig grease and a rig rag. You will never see any rust no matter how long it sits! Will also protect the stock. Might give the barrel a shot of w-d 40 couple a time per year.

                  I use wd40. Wipe it on and wipe off excess. Dust will get to it no matter what you do unless in a air tight case. It's not that hard to pick them up every couple of months and wipe them down with a rag with a dab of wd40 on it. I wipe mine down and run a patch through the barrel/action with wd every 6 months and once a year I break them down to get into the tight spots. I'm not saying spray it on and leave. I'm saying wipe on lightly wipe off. All my gun are 30 to 40 years old including my muzzleloader that I clean with soap and water and you will not find a speck of rust on any. It does not gum up. It does not trap dust like oil does. It does not hurt the finish on metal or wood. And it cost ahellofalot less than that wonder stuff you pay big bucks for. One can will last years. I will put my guns with wd against any of that stuff anyday. Rust and clean its good stuff.
