Parker Hale Express Oil 125ML Tin
Express Gun Oil has been specially developed by Parker Hale for the lubrication of guns and rifles and is suitable for all climates and conditions. It contains a special rust inhibitor to help protect your gun or rifle making it the ideal choice for the shooting man.
Express Gun Oil is made from a light mineral oil, and although designed for guns and rifles, is also highly suitable for many other uses requiring a high grade, light lubricating oil. It combines penetration, rust inhibition and cleaning power with the correct viscosity to make it the first choice for the gun enthusiast.
A good quality gun or rifle is an expensive purchase, but with reasonable care and maintenance will last you a lifetime. This means keeping it clean and rust free, and keeping moving parts well lubricated.
The chamber and bore should be cleaned with something like Youngs ‘303’, but for moving parts you need to use Express Gun Oil or something similar. This can also be used to wipe over the outside of the gun prior to storage at the end of the season.

Parker-Hale Limited began manufacturing high quality precision shooting accessories in the heart of the gun-making quarter in the year 1880. The founder, A.G.Parker, was a well-known rifleman of the 1st Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment and recognised the need for the supply of shooting aids to his fellow shooters.
The business had developed slowly up to the turn of the century, when Mr Parker decided to invite his nephew A.T.C. Hale to become a partner. He joined the Volunteers and showed considerable skills in the art of target shooting, an interest that was to remain with him throughout his life.
In 1904 the partnership was converted into a limited liability company, the shares being taken up by members of both the Parker and Hale families. A first catalogue was issued of arms and shooting accessories and, though limited in its range, clearly showed the company's growing trend for the development of accessories.
The Boer War had not long since given the British military leaders a sharp lesson in effectiveness of accurate rifle fire in holding off numerically superior forces. With influential backing, notably from Field Marshal Lord Roberts, efforts were made to improve the standard of marksmanship in the UK.
