How much if any oil or grease for trigger group? Same question for other areas of gun.
Maybe a shot of CLP for trigger group and then let drip dry?

I use Tetra Gun grease on high wear surfaces in the bolt group plus a little dab on the triggure/sear surfaces.It doesn't run like CLP.

I've been using Gun Slick Grease, but next time I'm going to try Dri-Lube. Its a spray on Teflon, and is non greasy so dosen't hold sand and grit wich can wear down parts, in time.

If you do use a grease of some sort or oil, its a good idea to clean old lube off first to remove grit, then lube.

I just did a detailed list (posted under the "jamming-not the bob marley kind" thread) -- look for it there. In general, any good grease will work, but I recommend Lubriplate ( 130-A mil-spec ONLY -- the stuff designed just for Garands, light tan colored, comes in tiny clear pots w/yellow lids at gun shows), Plastilube (later version, now dark purple), or Tetra Grease (best in a sandy or dusty area). Lubrication is expecially critical in the stainless models, which gall easily.

You can use CLP elsewhere for rust protection, but I would never put a "shot" of anything anywhere, unless you want a mess that will attract grit and crud.
