Barrels should not be oiled because it can gum up the barrel and cause the ammunition to misfire. It can also attract dirt and other debris which can then accumulate in the barrel and lead to decreased accuracy and increased wear and tear on the firearm. Oiling the barrel can also result in corrosion over time. If you do choose to oil your gun barrel, use a very light coat of oil specifically designed for firearms.

Most experts recommend against it. Oiling the barrel can cause the build-up of dirt and dust, which can then lead to corrosion and rust. It’s also important to remember that different types of oil can cause damage to gunmetal. Instead, it’s generally recommended that you wipe down the barrel with a dry cloth after each use.

A well-maintained firearm will not require any oil inside the barrel. Excess oil can lead to build-up and cause a gun to malfunction.
That said, it’s important to keep your firearm clean and well-lubricated, using quality gun oils and lubricants. Be sure to refer to your firearm’s owner’s manual for specific cleaning and lubrication instructions.

There is a lot of debate on this topic, but the consensus seems to be that you should not oil the inside of a gun barrel. Oiling the barrel can cause more problems than it solves, by collecting dust and dirt and leading to fouling. This can cause your gun to jam or misfire.

That said, some people do oil their barrels as a preventive measure against rusting. If you choose to do this, make sure you use a quality gun oil that will not damage your firearm. And be sure to clean your barrel regularly to remove any built-up oil or dirt.
