  1. RemOil for Semi's and in the action of my hunting rifles

    3-n-1 on the exposed surfaces of my hunting rifles.

    On my muzzleloaders I use TC Natural Lube 1000 aka Bore Butter exclusively for bore, lock, stock and barrel.

    Finally found a local store that sells Ballistol and I will be giving it a good test run in several of my semi's to see how it compared to RemOil.
  2. CLP for me, it's been battle proven and I get it for free from Security Forces.

    CLP took a real dump in Iraq and the current deployed units now use MiliTec-1 which is a hands down better performer in dirty, dusty environments. I edited the poll to add that option since it has a solid wide range deployment with are armed forces.
  4. On other threads I've read where this has come up, someone always starts a big argument by choosing Mobil1.

    SO, I'm gonna say MOBIL1 :lol: :lol:

    (Oh, I do use it, along with some other lubricants, on my guns)

    I voted "other"

    I have always used Hoppes Gun Oil.


    I may have to check into the MiliTec-1 as I have never used it before...
  6. The poll should have a choice for "other".

    I use and swear by gunbutter.
  7. I use rem oil on small working parts, mobil synthetics on slides and such.
  8. Whatever I happen to have handy.
  9. I "FINALLY" got the poll to display "OTHER" selection for those who use something not listed on the orginal poll choice. Initially I had this option in the poll but every time I clicked the Submit button the Other option would no be there.

  10. I agree to an extent--- I never had an issue with CLP (or LSA) for that matter--- But the weapons stayed pretty dry on ops when we went out. We did keep a larger ( maybe like 8oz) bottle of LSA for our guns (MGs, not rifles), but I never put anything but a light coat on my M16a2--- worked like a charm---

    That was just us though-- every break/rest period, we took turns breaking our weapons down and cleaning them -- no more than 50% of us were down at a time, unless we were in the rear.

    You would be suprised though how weapons maintenance is the difference maker. We trained with the Jordanian "Royal" something or others (King Hussein's "elite")-- They did not even know what lube was---

    Needless to say, we did not do f&m exercises under their guns....

    No wonder the whole Middle East is kept at bay by little ole Israel!

  11. I use rem oil for bore and depending on temperature or use rem oil or dry lube on moving parts. Birchwood Casey Sheath for external metal & wood.
