After your range work don't forget to clean off the sight black.
Remember one time when a service rifle shooter got to the match and pulled his Garand out of the case and found the front sight had a fuzzy coating of rust all over it. That stuff can and does collect moisture under the right conditions. Clean and oil when your done.

Thanks from Buelligan and brianns

I use a Ray-Vin super smoker that uses carbide. Nice and small and fits easily in the range kit.
+1 on the Ray-Vin, after years of spraying broke down couple years ago and got myself one for Christmas....AWESOME
