    As Jim said, just oiled up (bore and exterior) with a good quality Firearms grade oil and occasional checks.

    The whole thing depends on whether the OP is going to be present and available daily or if these are going to be left untouched for extended periods. Some think long term is a month or even six... Long term is an undefined term lasting for possibly decades. The most that happens then is a periodic inspection by weapons techs for condition and then resealing and returning to storage.



    We have no details...
    Regards, Jim
