I am currently trying to use up some froglube that I bought. No complaints, other than the cost, when used as a lube. Clean up is very easy, and I like that it is nontoxic. With that said, I'm not buying more. Too expensive. I can get similar results running synthetic motor oil for way less cash.

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.

Was it the extreme duty gun oil?  I use that stuff as a grease replacement on M1As and it works great.

I use ATF. Firearms aren't rocket science, read this:

Whatever shit I got for free a matches, currently Slip 2000 EWL, which happens to be probably the longest lasting oil I have used. Doesn't dissappear after a couple 100 rounds.

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.

 

 

 

My experience is that oil attracts dirt and powder fouling much more than grease.

You use oil that's too thin, so there.

This explains why I have so many gun issues.

Hell I might just start raiding the maintenance shop at work.

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

 

I ran it as a lite/dry lube for my Glock at a match last Feb that started at 22 degrees - first (outlaw) pistol match I ever won.  I think I shot shot OK, but I think it was because most other people used too-thick lube and simply couldn't keep their guns running.  If you don't over-apply it than it doesn't seem to accumulate and collect gunk.

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.

 

Automotive oils and greases are prefect for guns. No one really has any evidence to the contrary.

 

Also, grease and oil don't attract anything. They merely trap. Magnets attract things, greases don't.
