Buy a quart and it will last you a lifetime.

Buying "gun oil" is stupid, no way your gun runs hotter or more dirty than a car engine.

Synthetic bearing grease for the slide rails and sear.  Synthetic motor oil for everything else.

Automotive oil isn't the best choice for firearms, it will work but has a lot of extra additives that are of no use in a firearm. About anything will work if you keep it clean and change out the oil often enough, for decades we thought 3 in 1 sewing machine oil was actually ok for our guns. It turned into a kind of shellac like coating after awhile which should have been a clue.

 

I have very little use for grease on a firearm. I tried it on the hinge pins on my fine OUs but grease attracts dust and dirt so even in that fairly high stress area I like Slip 2000 oil better.

 

I've used a lot of Break Free CLP and been happy with it. Slip 2000 is very good and so far in my own use it seems to hang on longer than BF. I don't buy into any of the metal treatment claims I just find it works well for what I need it to do.I use RemOil as a general purpose light oil, I run my Remington 1100 shotguns wet with it and they run great, after use and cleaning I hose down the tube and gas system and leave it wet, it makes cleaning after the next use easy and ensures it will work.

 

Lastly steel doesn't have pores, it's a cyrstiline structure so don't worry about giving your guns expensive treatments for their "pores".

I could give a shit less how my gun oil tastes so mint flavorings don't do anything for me.

Currently playing with Fire Clean. No complaints. Perhaps makes cleaning easier. Only used on Glock so far, need to test a few cycles on AR-15.

Previous Wet lube - Slip 2000 EWL

Dry lube / Protectant - Eezox

5% Moly high pressure grease for AR trigger sears etc.

Usually whatever I have laying around on my work bench. Which right now happens to be a can of cheap chain lube I use to keep my SV's chain wet. Synthetic racing oil works good too. Basically I don't give a shit just as long as it's lubed.

Eezox is the shit for corrosion protection. Not so much for anything else.

 

I've got a gallon of Lubriplate oil that seemed a good idea at the time. Probably last me until it congeals in container.

 

Been using Slide Glide but at MFCEO's class when temp dropped to ~35 my gun got really sluggish. Wiped it off in the hotel that night and got some Hoppes gun oil from a friend and then all was good.

 

Trying out Slide Glide Light for rails, just a drop of oil on the sear/hammer surface, and a drop under the sear cage where the trigger bar rubs. Going to try a very dry gun for a while. I'm convinced all the oil/grease does is make things sluggish and attract dirt.

 

Would try Ben's new elixir but I already have Slide Glide to use up. As was said before, this isn't rocket surgery and guns are sloppy and relatively low performance. The thing they suck at is keeping lube inside of them on bearing surfaces.

I think you need to lube your springs more.

Fire lion.....i used to think it didnt matter at all (and for most applications it probably doesnt).  But I used to use Lucas on everything until I had a galling issue on 2 separate open guns.  One was a stainless cone comp that was nitrided...finish wore through and galling started to occurr.  The other was a stainless frame open gun that was a fairly new build.  When galling started on the frame rails, I changed oils.  I now use Militec and havent had any problems since. 

 

I used to think these threads were nothing but dumbass trolls, now i have a slightly different opinion.  I am sure that in 99% of the cases, type of oil really doesnt matter as long as there is some present.
