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 1oz squirt bottles like eye drops. 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.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

+1 for Mobil 1, too. Heard some were mixing it with auto-tranny fluid, too?

I actually stopped worrying about these issues once I was lucky enough to learn about Crest Ultrasonic

It cleans, thoroughly, and then lubricates all parts you can fit in the tank. *shrug*

The lubricant is available on it's own and I have never had a problem treating ANY of my weapon systems with it.

Out of curiosity, what does that thing cost? Looks pretty expensive.

I got a small one, not the big one you see in the picture there with all the black rifles by it.

Mine will accept like two pistols, or the parts from one rifle.

I got a deal, actually I got a coupon for a deal at SHOT in 2006, and it was purchased for me as a birthday gift that same year. I believe the entire, good to go kit that I got was around $1200 and that included everything needed to start cleaning weapons...
