Default Lubing my new AR.

I have my bottle of Mobil 1 full syn 0w40 and my Wislon combat molly grease.

My grease has a built in applicator tip. My oil doesn't. How do you guys apply the oil. I was thinking one of them worm floaters bottle's but couldn't find any around me.

So What do you guys use to apply oil?

I can get 5 and 10cc syringes if need be.

I was thinking of these.

I actually bought a clear bottle of Elmer's Glue (the water-based kind) for about a dollar, emptied it out, washed it out thoroughly with hot water and soap, dried it with a hot air blower, and then filled it from my Mobile One quart. I know it sounds really low-life, but the orange screw top works great and doesn't leak. You can open it up gradually to get just a drop out of it--I use it on the slides/rails of my pistols also and it seems to work great.

I'd post a picture of my Elmer's Mobile One, but the Polaroid picture I took won't fit in the slot on my computer--maybe I need an equipment upgrade!

I use grease or high movement parts like my bolt and carrier they get grease. The trigger gets oil.

I've been using Mobil One on all my guns for a long time. A quart lasts forever...
