Becareful with WD-40, be sure you wipe it out good, don't let it get into the ignition system (flash hole or nipples). Years ago the when WD-40 was first introduced (remember it in 1954 came out the year before) some of the police departments had issues with WD-40 neutralizing primers in their service weapons (to make an acidic or alkaline substance chemically neutral).
.
Neighbor bought a brand new Rem 1100, had no experience, and asked me how to clean and store it. Against my adament urgings, he spraed it down with WD-40 and put it in the closet after dove season. 4 months later he pulled out a rusted piece of junk. Surface rust, pitting, etc. Ruined a beautiful shotgun.

WD-40 is good for temporary lube and removing decals from car bumpers and that's about it!
