Mobil-1, really? Hmm, will probably be way cheaper than the Hoppes' stuff I use.

But yeah, over-lubing is bad. Bro left his gun at my dad's overnight until we could get the permit to transfer it to him, dad decided to give it a "good cleaning." It was absolutely dripping oil, I helped him field strip it and we Gun Scrubber'd the whole thing, then six drops of oil on the important parts, same as I do with my M&P every time I shoot it.

Now, the Ruger is another matter. I hate needing a hammer to get my gun apart and back together, so it only gets broken down about once a month, but it's a tough hunk of steel anyway, and hard to screw up the action.

Yeah, I use Mobile 1. I actually find it works really well as a cleaner too, with all the detergents in it. For the same amount of money you get like 20 times as much of a substance designed to do exactly the same thing (protect metal / metal contact surfaces under high heat and stress with contaminates from carbon and combustion byproducts). As was stated, most of the latest gun oils were originally developed primarily for the automotive industry years ago.

I use Rem Oil over here in Afghanistan because it's so dry. Just because it's not wet doesn't mean it's not doing it's job. There is far too much moon dust here to use a wet lube. If it keeps an M4 shooting in the desert, it'll surely keep a Glock going back home.
