This is why I first tried it.
I could certainly test your statement next winter or if we get another cold spell. A carbine gas system caries a good punch. It would only takes a few minutes to smear some grease on. Like I said I use CLP now. But it did run fine with grease

Any brand of full synthetic.
I can get Mobil 1 anywhere around here. Other brands will work the same. I know Jack (IGETEVEN) mentioned he uses Amsoil

Has anyone ever tried bore butter in an AR? I was thinking of giving it a shot just to see what is does. My .36 cal navy ate about a half ounce of it the first time I applied it. The stuff just soaks in to the steel, kind of strange to watch and it made a breeze to clean afterward.

Marvel Mystery Oil will do the trick...........built for high temperatures and displaces carbon build-up. been using it for a year now with no complaints what-so-ever; definitely easier to clean than using Rem-Oil.

Military TM prescribes CLP for the M-16 I have used it for years Break Free is what was in the supply system.

With the rifle disassembled, thoroughly clean, inspect, and lube.
Always shake CLP before use.
After firing, clean your weapon with CLP according to instructions on page 26. Wipe dry and lube
according to lubrication instructions.
