Next time you clean your rifle or musket instead of oiling the outside of the barrel and lock with oil, sneek into the kitchen and borrow your wife's wax paper. Using wax paper to polish metal parts leaves a thin residue of wax behind protecting the metal parts. I also use wax paper on my tablesaw and jointer beds making then slick as a baby's butt.
Try it and be very surprised how well it works.

The first thing I do to a rifle is remove the barrel, heat it and apply a libral amont of beeswax, followed by a good buffing on the wheel.
