Grease was a safety item and one of the most critical items for safety that a person firing a revolver could use. A revolver had a very real possibility of creating what was called a Chain fire. Multiple cylinders firing at once. As you can imagine this would not be enjoyable for the soldier firing the weapon. It was possible in a revolver to fire one shot and have flame shoot back and work its way down inside the next unfired cylinder, thereby igniting that cylinders charge, it would most certainly destroy the handgun if not kill the soldier using it! Grease was placed over the end of each loaded cylinder, topping off the cylinder and preventing these chain fires from occurring. A single shot pistol did not have this problem, only having the one shot at a time. Grease would be some sort of animal fat, most likely whatever was at hand.
Rub the inside surface of a pan with solid shortening using pastry brush, wax paper or paper towel, to prevent food from sticking during baking. Nonstick cooking spray may also be used; do NOT use butter or margarine, because sticking may occur.
