yeah, if you want to.........it's just oil just like all the other gun oils on the market
Oil and a rag
Mobil One will be just as good and far, far cheaper.
You guys and everyone on this forum is outstanding. You have all helped me grow with firearms so much. Thank you all.
Just remember to use very little on the outside. You don't want to soak the gun in oil, just a tad bit and then wipe it off with a rag. And then you got a light coat left on the gun.
Thank to so much
Sure you can use that. Or, you could run down to the automotive store, and for what that cost, you can buy a quart of full synthetic motor oil and have a 10 year supply. Oil doesn't have to say "gun" or "shooter" on it to work.
What you are trying to accomplish, on the outside of a firearm is a water repellent that will stick to the gun and not harm the finish, there is nothing particularly hi-tech about it.
Yes sir!!! Agreed
I've used Shooter's Lube inside & out, blue and SS. No complaints.
Shooter Lube Oil 2 oz. $7.99
Mobil One 5-20W quart $9.99
Both will accomplish the same thing.
Think about what Mobil One is made for, moving parts, high heat, friction, carbon fouling, oxidation, same things Shooter's Lube is.
^^^^^^^. What they said a product like Mobil One or something similar can protect your engine turning 2000 to 3000 RPM for thousands of miles. Just what will you be doing that even comes close to that in years to come? There has always been ? "Snake Oil Sales-men" so beware!
Think about it, cars running 500 mile races at very high RPM use this or similar. You are going to run a few hundred puny 9mm/.45, 223/556? The force of the piston of a car engine is far more than any puny firearm you will ever own period.
Shooter Lube Oil @ $7.99 for 2 ounces is $127.84 a quart.
As the others have mentioned here is some of lube I have used for years. And we also use it at the Rifle Schools for the State LE Academy.
MOBILE 1 GUN LUBRICANT FORMULA
1 Quart of Mobil 1 Synthetic Motor Oil
*For extreme cold use Oil with less Viscosity. (Like 15W30 for example)
Then mix with:
½ Quart of Mobil One Synthetic ATF Transmission Fluid
Put both in a small Gas Can or RC Fuel Container
“Shake Formula in container to mix it up”!
Makes a Quart and a Half of the best lubricant you can buy! And much less cost for the amount you make. I could only imagine what a Quart and a Half of most gun lubricants would cost? As Sheepdawg mentioned the one in the above post!
Then you can get one of those small spray bottles like they use in a Beauty Shop to put what you need in it to dispense. You simply spray some on a patch or on a part. Later you fill the small bottle back up from your larger container when it runs empty!
This Lubricant is especially good, since it will not bake off if the weapon/s are run hot. And certainly excellent for semi and auto Rifles!
Nothing about handling lead or copper depositing, but still. Good basic characteristics. (Though, I'm assuming there are still "leaded" gas formulations out there that still would benefit from anti-lead fouling features, so perhaps it's integral ... since Mobil 1 has been around awhile.)
At worst, the ol' bottle of Hoppe's #9 occasionally for the metal fouling that the Mobil 1 won't cover. (Which, at ~$20/qt, isn't all that much more than a can of Mobil 1 oil + ATF.)
Hoppes and Mobil One has always been my cleaning duo. Hot water first if I'm shooting corrosive. Sweet's on occasion.
What viscosity Mobil 1?
So motor oil mixed with transmission fluid?? Been reading, want to break it down to make sure If I understand correctly. 2 to 1..... 2 part oil 1 part transmission fluid?? Synthetic blends on both?
I have a 2018 Chevy pick up and Chevy says run 0-20W so I have a few quarts of that around. But I have a 1/2 quart of 10-30W that gets used on my firearms.
Might try the 0-20W.
