I recently purchased a Ruger LCP supposedly used from a KC gun dealer. All the packing, instructions, and box were brand new. The gun looks brand new. The action is stiff to pull back. What type of oil should I use to loosen it up.
Thanks.

The gun that won the west wasn't registered

any good 3 in 1 will work. I use either remington, S&W lube and protectant, or hoppes 9. sounds like you will have to break it in to loosen it up.

break in and oil

suggest you try Breakfree CLP and about 100 rounds of shooting time , most autos do require range time before they work good

Hornady one-shot

It is a spray-on dry lube that works wonders. it is a lube, but it also makes carbon removal much easier and you will never have a smoother action. It costs about 8 bucks a can, but is worth it.

Be sure to check that it has been repaired by Ruger. They issued a recall on the LCP. Here is a link to check out if you own the LCP....
