Sure, go for it. Let us know how you like it. Can be a heavily debated subject, but the people here are nice.I've seen a lot of talk and even technical data showing how Mobile 1 Synthetic Oil is best to use on your firearms. I was wondering do any of you guys use it, or other motor oils on you firearms?
Just looking for thoughts on this.
Thanks in advance
Could not agree more. 95% of us don't abuse a pistol or rifle like the military does. If you clean your gun after every range trip or every other trip, almost any light viscosity oil will be fine.I think that most guys really over think gun oil. For a gun that's kept at home, makes an occasional trip to the range then is back home and cleaned before putting it away just about any oil will work. It's when the gun is going to be subjected to the different elements (cold, humidity, dust, dirt etc.) for prolonged periods of time that you have to get into the merits of special types of lubricants.
I use Mobil 1 in my Porsche, which is the factory spec.So, just to wipe down my girls and get the finger prints off, maybe just a lightly oiled rag would do?
That article is so far above my pay grade of comprehension that I will have to take your word for it...
Interesting. One article says Yay! Another Nay! Who do you believe? Nothing special in the formula for "gun oil?" I believe that.
I have never seen this article. Even though it is provided by a company selling their product, it makes sense to me and provides food for thought. Thanks for sharing.And here's the problem with using it...
