Default Rem DriLube

For my birthday - someone gave me some Rem DriLube. Never used it. Lots of things I'm reading say "dont use it on your AR, they like to run wet" ... obviously they like running "wet" but running wet, to me, at least, implies abundant lubrication.

But, as we know, the internet can sometimes be full of it.

SO im coming to a trusted source.

Opinions?

Never used it. I use Mobil 1 full synthetic on all my guns.

What uses does the label recommend? Dry lube is used in magazines and maybe the buffer tube but I'd pass otherwise.

The only time I have used drii-lube was in magazines. It does a good job there so I imagine using as directed should yield positive results.

label basically says makes the actions in firearms work amazing.

Some sources agree - some say "never use teflon in your AR"

I went ahead and sprayed it down on the inside...worst thing that can happen is I fire off a few, it starts jamming, then I guess i'll know not to do it again

I hated it. It left a white chalky residue in the action!

I use it on magazines. Magazines like to be lubed but oil and dust make mud. Dry spray lube works great for those apps. Its good for ccw guns that only need to run 1 mag or 1 cylinder but not get your clothes oily.

On a rifle no purpose for it.
