I have used Mobil 1 in both of my ARs from day one and its great , I have a couple of contact eye wetting drop bottles I refill , They have a small tip and I can get it into small places pretty well , I had been using something else on my Smith and switched over to this , night and day difference in the smoothness of the slide

If you use a light weight, I couldn't see it having any cold weather issues. Especially since it's synthetic. Synthetic oils have a lower increase in viscosity in cold temps.

When I first came to this site, some one suggested this. I tryed it and now thats all I use for lube. My guns run much smotther than before, also I have had one quart since then. ANd still have plenty of oil left.

In my humble opinion, it works better than gun lub and is more cost effective.

I use hopps number 9 and mobile 1

Thats what Im thinking. Cause I use full synthetic oil in my truck and have had no engine problems in almost 3 winters up there.

I have to be different though, I use Rotella Synthetic.

Unless one had to worry about extremes, I suspect that non-synthetic would work fine too.

Hmmmm....I'm glad I checked out this thread. Real interesting. I'm going to have to give this a try. I've always used Break Free and now, Weapon Shield. If the synthetic motor oils are a better alternative, I'm game to give it a shot (no pun intended).

And considering how much I used to oil up four guns. This quart will last lifetime. I used a Qtip and just dabbed it where I needed it.
