Great article by Grant. It's been out for a couple years, but good to be reminded.

The rule of thumb is still a good one: grease if it slides, oil if it turns.

Just saw this. Don't know where I've been. Thanks Churtaro, well said; and Jäger too.

I don't practice near enough and it is difficult to find a range that's friendly toward this kind of thing.

That's the one. The trigger is still great. I took the grips off, but have put them back on. You set it up very nicely. I'd love to find a clean C series or the 75th anniversary gun.
