Been running Tula and Wolf in my AKs, SKS, Glock, Colt and Oly ARs - zero problems.
Only gun that had issues with Tula steelcase was my C93 with the fluted chamber, it would shoot it, but got incredibly dirtier than when shooting the brass-cased stuff. Maybe 'cause the brass sealed the flutes a bit better.

I was thinking that too. It's a lot like WD-40.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.

my opinion: rem oil has about the exact same business around firearms as salt water, dremmel tools, and wd40...

A dremel does come in quite handy on some projects.

Now, there are some gun projects that it definitely does not have any business around.

Larry Potterfield uses one in almost all of his gunsmithing videos. Is that guy even a real smith? I don't even know, but I like his tech vids.
