Was wondering what gun oil u all recommend for 1911. Kimber recommends shooters choice FP 10. Ive been using Hopes gun oil. Is one better than the other?
My grandfathers Remington Pump 20 gage and a couple auto handguns had motor oil for years. He used to keep a small dropper filled with it to lube his guns. All of them show little wear after all these years. Bottom line is any good oil will keep the metal to metal friction to a minimum. As for 3in1 oil, I've used my wife's sewing machine oil in a pinch.I've got guns (my fathers and grandfathers) older than me and if I remember correctly they lubed with 3 in One oil. Those guns still function like the day they came out of the factory.
