I prefer a semi synthethic blend of motor oil for oiling my firearms. After oiling them down...I turn them upside down, with the muzzle resting on some newspaper for awhile; so all of the excess oil drains on the paper, instead of having it permeating the buttstock.

All good advice so far. I am also a fan of Slip 2000 products - good stuff. If you really want to go down a rabbits hole with the 10/22, go over to Rimfirecentral.com. They have an entire section devoted to all manner of 10/22 subjects. You've got some neat rifles, go shoot them!

All of us were total newbs once.
I like to use chemistry instead of elbow grease when I clean my firearms. Swab the bore,let the solvent soak-an hour or more-then wipe down.
DO NOT soak any nickel guns. Hoppe's WILL remove the nickel.
A good practice is to push only one way with the cleaning rod where possible.

Hoppe's has no effect on nickel.

What it DOES have an effect on, is the copper substrate that the nickel is plated atop. If there are any cracks or holes in the nickel, the copper will be dissolved by the Hoppes and BINGO... off flakes the nickel!

No bueno, Scoob! No bueno!!
