I agree with mulie, it's a very thin weak oil. I used it when I started carrying and I'd leave my gun in the hot car even for only a while it would completely evaporate. Even over time in room temperature.

Rem oil is just easy to get ahold of and it has always worked for my. I just use a little bit after I clean my guns and it works fine. Ain't had problems with it since I started using it. Thank you for the info!

The topic of oil has been beaten to death on gun forums.
The type of oil a shooter uses depends on the environment the gun is used in.
The amount of oil a shooter uses depends on the number of rounds the gun is going to shoot.

Each shooter has his/her own preference.
Some like Rem, Hoppe's, MilPro, Trans Fluid, Moble One, or any ol' engine oil.
I prefer to oil the trigger assembly with PB Blaster, and grease the slide with Tetra.

Some shooters have a special mix of stuff they swear by.
To each shooter it’s a matter of choice.

The most important fact is for the gun to be oiled.
If the gun is going to be fired a lot then any ol' oil will do...

Mil Tec is the best I have ever used yet. Stuff is fantastic. I use it on MY 249 and my M4 here in Afghanistan. Great lubrication/protective coating as well as it does not attract dust.

To answer the original question - You can keep some extra on hand but don't worry to much about it. Like the other posters have said you CAN use about any oil product.
