I'm as old-school as anyone here and if Rem-Oil isn't on my bench I need to find a 24hr sporting goods store.

With that said, Mobil 1.

Do you guys think the gun industry worked/spent as much time/$ finding a lube for a hot, carbon-deposited environment than the auto guys do for a number of reasons?

Here's what you do, get a bunch of those 1/2 oz needle bottles. Buy a quart of Mobil 1 and fill the bottles. Now hand them out to your shooting buddies and tell them to try out this new M4 lube.

I'll bet everyone will be back asking where they can buy this stuff! And the ones that don't come back don't shoot enough to see how well this stuff works.

Tell them you're the distributor and can get it cheap if they want it without labels.

Sell it at the same price they spend on their current lube. You will make money hand over fist on that deal!

Think about that! We buy a little 1oz bottle of Rem-Oil for $2+

Remington Rem Oil Gun Oil 1 oz Liquid - MidwayUSA - $2.09

$2 oz X 32 ozs = $64 qt (What's a qt of Mobile 1 go for?)

Mobil 1 Fully Synthetic Motor Oil 5W-30 (1-Quart) - $6.29

Or just tell them about it like we told you.

Another auto oil, gun lube application:

Royal Purple Gun Oil

Cane just ruined my retirement plan, now everyone will be selling Mobile One for $2 an ounce! I use SAE 0-20, but I'm not sure I could tell the difference if I tried. I belong to an H&K forum that is sponsered by the company--there was a post from a guy talking about the idiots that use motor oil on their guns and how stupid they are. I tried to post a response and say that I, in addition to some very accomplished shooting friends, have used it for a long time with superb results, but H&K wouldn't post it. They must sell their own gun oil for $4 an ounce...

Let me tell you a little "insider secret" about engine oil viscosity ratings.

Most of my boating friends tell me that they buy only straight weight oil (30 or 40) for their boat engines.

I tried to explain that the rating is only a guideline for the manufactures labeling. What is the one thing that makes mass production cost effective? A single or few part numbers produced, right?

When the oil company sells its motor oil and a request comes in for 10,000 gallons of straight 40 weight labeled quarts they go to the million gallon tank of 10W40 and draw off the 10K gallons for the customer.

As long as the oil in the 40W labeled container has oil of 40W viscosity it's legal to sell it as 40W. (Even if it's multi-weight)

So the next time you buy engine oil, find the cheapest that has the weight rating you are looking for.

Missileman, for your purchase of SAE 0W20, you are probably buying an actual 0W40 oil labeled 0W20.

Nope, guess I should. I've only posted a couple times, and they always hold posts for review before putting them on the site, so I was just waiting for it to clear, but it never did. I may be jumping to conclusions that they won't post it--it could be lost in cyber space, I suppose--but other posts I've submitted since then (different topics) have been posted...

You're probably right, especially with synthetic oils--I believe I read where Mobile only put out viscosity ratings on their synthetics because consumers won't buy the oil unless it says exactly what their service manual calls for.

I would pm the fella and see where that takes you. If you get a nasty back then it most likely means that H&K agrees with this fella's post and would not accept your views. Personally, I'm open to most anything coming from folks that know more than me but then again, I also use WD-40. I use it for curing the blueing finishes that I do.
