Default What all can rem oil be used on?

Hey I'm pretty much the only shooter in my family so I don't have anyone to get advice from about cleaning? All of my rifles have a blued finish and I'd like to keep that. Can I use rem oil on the outer barrel without wearing off that finish? If not what am I supposed to use to keep the blued finish?

Thanks
Sean

Yes, you can. No harm to the bluing. I use it all the time.

Rem Oil is best used to lube water pump on 1965 VW Beetles. Use a "good" oil on your guns. Mobil One 5W 30 and Machine Gunner's Lube from Sprinco are my two favorites.

I like Rem Oil for a cleaner, rust preventer on non-wear surfaces.

Synthetic oil on metal to metal wear points.

Really? If you oil that pump, the water will get oily.

I think the old VWs were air cooled...no pump to oil, no water either..So i guess theres no use for the Rem Oil at all....?
