Smith & Wesson Model 649 (Bodyguard)

In this photo the Model 649 is shown disassembled for a complete cleaning. I always use white lithium grease which I believe is the best for stainless steel pistols and revolvers. On all others I use a paste I mix using Birchwood Casey oil and super fine graphite. The Birchwood Casey will not freeze even at extreme temperatures while the graphite keeps the mixture where I want it. With all of the new products out there the oil and graphite mix is probably old fashioned, but it has worked good for me so I am sticking with it.

I am just a guy who is interested in pistols and revolvers. Over the years I have owned, shot and carried a long list of guns. I do not claim to be an expert. I always say "I am just a guy with a broken zipper on his jacket. Building websites is not my thing. I just use this to share some information with friends of mine.
