As do I, but I find myself walking out of the door with a Remington in hand more than any other

Spoke to Cole’s yesterday and asked why no lube on metal moving parts.
They said a LITTLE oil is fine.
The problem is some people use a LOT of oil and that causes a problem.
If a little is good, then a lot is a lot better. :shock:

It really only becomes a problem if you leave it sit and the oil turns to cement with baked on powder etc. If you wipe it out frequently and reoil I doubt you can do too much to hurt these guns. Also, I only use breakfree clp since it is fairly cheap and readily available.

The 300 is the greatest Shotgun bargain around. Basically a 392 back end with an a400 gas system. Run it dry. The a400 gas system requires less clean up, I find a wire brush works best and fast. Make sure you inset the piston into the barrels before reassembley, otherwise you risk danaging the gas piston.

A390 has system = dry.
Having piston shined new is cosmetic and has little to do with function.
My only issues in an a390 cycling were due to a corroded spring in the stock after being submerged multiple times. Over a period of 10 years.

The only thing you lightly lube is the recoil spring tube, grooves in the receiver, bolt internals and some on the trigger. Everything else is dry as per Beretta. If you like to clean your gun after every time out you can get away running it wet in the gas system. Old 1100 habits are hard to break.
