I just got a new LCR and already had an SP101. When cleaning the SP101 I ran a solvent patch through the barrel, brushed a bit and then ran an oil patch through to retard corrosion. I just read the manual for the new LCR and there is no mention of an oil patch step. They also warn about oil in the barrel as dangerous. I suspect they meant lots of oil, but have I been doing the cleaning wrong on the SP101? Should I use an oil patch last step with the LCR?

How often to you clean/use your weapons? If your LCR gets to the range twice a year and is left loaded, ready to go the rest of the time, I'd keep it lightly oiled like you have. (I always run a dry patch after the oil patch, to soak up any excess; sounds like you do as well) - then there should be no problem. If you take your weapons to the range twice a month and clean them when you're done, then oiling the barrel probably makes little difference, as there would not be enough time for corrosion to catch up between cleanings.
