    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.

    I like Rem-oil (purchased in big cans at auto supply stores -- 2/3rds the price of gun shops in a different can!) on internal mechanisms. Light and includes teflon -- hello! A big can lasts a lifetime to begin with -- get two if you want. I am better at using the spray cans to get a microdot of oil where I want it than with the stupid Remington little oil bottle and straw.

    Outside I prefer wiping them down with silicone I've put onto a cloth -- electrical sprays (let the cloth dry before applying to gun) and tile grout liquid are silicone.
