    dont leave it on your rifle mate it will **** your rifle quicker than anything, the gases from the mod will corrode the barrel very quickly,atb wayne

    Copper grease is best for the thread of the Moderator as it will stop it binding when really hot

    asw above dont leave it on your rifle...i give mine a good spray with wd40 let it drain away then a good wipe with a oily rag..

    However if you buy a decent moderator there is no need to have WD40 anywhere near a rifle .

    IMHO the further away the WD40 from a gun is the better .

    3 in 1 and WD40 are as bad as each other. In fact, aren't they more or less the same and from the same company?
    Eezox is far superior in my opinion...
