Default Cleaning and lube of Marlin 60?

I recently inherited a like-new Marlin 60 (.22LR) rifle and want to do a full dis-assembly, cleaning, and lube of the rifle. I am new to rifle ownership and want to make sure I do it the correct way. I have a number of handguns and use FrogLube for my cleaning/lube on them. Is it OK to use FL on this rifle, or should I use some other cleaning/lube product(s).

Thanks in advance for your advise... much appreciated!

I'm not familiar with frog lube. But I would say you should be fine using slip 2000 or break free CLP.

Frog lube is perfect for it.. I have a 60 and it works great ...

HEre is a good video I used to learn how to field strip the rifle.

you dont need much lube on that gun the plastic triggerhousing is self lubricating

maybe a couple drops above the bolt and some compressed air and a small brush to remove debris

Do not use brake cleaner to hose out the trigger assembly. The plastic Marlin uses does not like it.

Too much lube just attracts dirt and semi .22lrs are dirty.

Frog lube is a great lube i use it in my 10/22 and it runs perfect. i would use frog lube in the model 60 because frog lube doesnt leave lube/oil sitting in there so it wont get gummed up.
