For my Ak I use a mixture of penetrating oil and bore solvent, made by Kroil. I shoot 1950s chinese ammo and don't need my AK 'wet' to cut down on the fouling.

I bought a bottle of Lucas gun oil to try it out. I am 99% positive it is Transmission Fluid. Same color, texture, smell, etc. (no didn't taste it)

It works pretty well doesn't leave a residue. I've heard of some guys that swear by using ATF as gun lube but I could have bought two qts. for what these few ounces cost. lol

My AR likes it wet, and my AK could care less. So I use the solvent/oil that doesn't leave it 'wet' for my personal cleaning pleasure.
I've never had a misfire, jam or any issues with it yet.
I do however use Amsoil for my bike.

1 quart of ATF lasts a long time, and is great, as a " let it sit, wipe off the

soot later" cleaner. Brush solvent also cleans metal well, for active wiping,

but is highly flammable; it will mostly evaporate,however.

Mobil1 is a great GP lube, and works well for me, for long storage.

I believe Michail designed them to be lubed with goat grease or duck butter. Mobil 1 will work very well.

I've used it on tons of things but never guns, I usually use it for drilling holes in tough object or sometimes tapping.

I might have to start carrying a quart when I go camping might help.
