Long lasting lubrication and corrosion protection

Hi guys,
What is your favorite long lasting lubrication and corrosion protection for bores?? Mainly for never fired in display BP revolvers.

Never had one of those. They all get fired. Bore Butter seems to work ok but I dunno how it would be on a permanent basis.

I use RemOil for any of mine, fired and unfired. The unfired ones get a good heavy re-oiling with it at least every 4 months. I don't know how long you could actually go without reapplying. I guess it would depend on where you kept them. (humidity and temp variances)

Never ever to be fired? Use Renaissance Wax. PH neutral, it is used by museum conservators worldwide.

Rigs Gun Grease, but the gun will be a lot happier if you shot it, clean it then use Rigs.

Eezox

Eezox is well known for being one of the best rust protectants.
Applying a thin film of it will prevent rust like no petroleum oil can.
It's also compatible with black powder, and at less than $7 per container it's relatively inexpensive.
Guns may need to be wiped down with it once a year.

Quote:
EEZOX® weighs 10.42 pounds per gallon - squirt or spray EEZOX® into a container of water and it will sink to the bottom. This density prevents water from penetrating the thin layer of EEZOX® and from reacting with the metal to form rust. Because of the hydrocarbon oil content of other products, they will "float" on water. Therefore, water penetrates this oil layer and rests on the metal surface. The water then reacts with oxygen and the metal surface to form rust.

Our research clearly shows over 75% of gun owners are not satisfied with gun care products presently being used. Compare this to the 98.7% of EEZOX® users who are greatly satisfied.

If you don't clean it out of the bore and chambers before you shoot it you're making the cleaning job afterwards harder.

Birchwood Casey's Barricade.

BP compatible, easy to apply, works for long term storage.

Although if the intent really is just long term display, 4v50Gary's mention of Renaissance Wax is the best answer.
