What kind of oil do you use?

Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

What kind of oil do you use?

Default What kind of oil do you use?

I use FP-10 on my AR-15 (don't have anymore) and pistols, Glock's and SW1911 that see a lot of continuous shooting and Rem Oil on my hunting rifles and shotguns. A while back I started using the FP-10 on my hunting rifles and shotguns too, Marlin 336, Remington 700's, 870, 11-87's, Ruger 10-22.

I just bought a new Remington 7600 Carbine. I have to clean and oil it before I shoot it this weekend. I'm thinking of going back to the Rem Oil on my hunting guns and use the FP-10 on my pistols. What kind of oil do you use?

Thanks, NYH1!

I use rem oil. It's cheap and does the trick. Just remember it's just a light oil that won't necessarily do the trick for long-term storage (though in my dry area, it's all I need).

Should I stick with the FP-10 then?

I've always used Rem-Oil it always seems to do the trick for me.

Rem Oil or Breakfree CLP for me. Depends on what I'm using it on, and what I have on hand at the time.

I clean them with AT Fluid, but if they are going to sit a long time (Year or more) I use Rem oil.

I use Rem Oil for general lube ... and rub my fire arms down with thin coat of a high quality gun grease for long term storage.
