I was probably going to try and clean and lube everything down this weekend so I can take it to the range soon.
Based on that I suggest a 50/50 mix of BLO and turpentine.
Follow the directions in this thread and video. Take your time, do a light 50/50 scrub, see how it looks. Repeat if you want, when done, a coat or so of full strength oil and impress your friends.

You can use a straight solvent (turp, mineral spirits) but it is that, a solvent so will cut the existing oil quickly. You like the patina so use the 50/50 and you can scrub away and not take off too much.
