I have gun oil that smells like pine......off topic but I have bore cleaner that smells like pine too. I would assume gun oil may work like lubricant oil too ?

Both sound like good things to try, have you thought about trying vaseline?

I think all of the above would work. After your season is over, spray it real good with WD40 and then let it air dry in a shed or garage till next season.
