What's your thoughts guys??? 5W30
Damn good gun lube, one bottle will last you forever
i think if you used it in one of the smaller squeeze bottles with the the applicator nozzle, it would last a long time. Mobile 1 oil being a synthetic, and used in many high revving performance engines by many factory car builders, then it should work fine in oiling a pistol is used like regular gun oil. of course this is just my opinion on the matter and i will have to try in out myself. Lucas Oil products and additives, makes a really good gun oil. several years ago the Lucas Rep, gave us some bottles to try out. i have since run out of it and am trying to find a new source for it.
I have about run out of my stock of Castrol Syntec. Mobil 1 will be the replacement.
That's not a bad idea come to think about it I may try that
I purchased a couple of pump containers from Harbor Freight. I use one to lube the chains on the motorcycles, the other for Mobil 1.
Everything I have read and heard about Mobile 1 tells me it is a great lubricant for firearms and very cost effective. You can use things like Q tips and small squeeze tubes to control the application of it. I think it would be a great choice.
Axxe55 - fyi
I was in my local O'Reilly Auto parts a couple of days ago and they are carring Lucas Gun Oil at the front counter. Haven't tried it
Motor oil is great for lubing guns. Used to use 5w30 on my issue m60 machine gun. I use it to lube pistol rails if its a long range session. I use a light gun grease for my carry guns as motor has a tendency to leak into my clothes.
I switched to Mobil 1 after seeing a discussion about it here. Cleaned and oiled my AR with it. After a range trip where I fired 100 rounds, I stripped it. Every part that wasn't directly attacked by hot gas was still visibly oily. Most gun oils I've tried, the gun would be completely dry afterward.
I have used Mobil 1 in both of my ARs from day one and its great , I have a couple of contact eye wetting drop bottles I refill , They have a small tip and I can get it into small places pretty well , I had been using something else on my Smith and switched over to this , night and day difference in the smoothness of the slide
I must admit I never would have thought of this...wonder how it would do in arctic conditions of a Fairbanks winter...
If you use a light weight, I couldn't see it having any cold weather issues. Especially since it's synthetic. Synthetic oils have a lower increase in viscosity in cold temps.
Is this stuff better then hoppe's ?
When I first came to this site, some one suggested this. I tryed it and now thats all I use for lube. My guns run much smotther than before, also I have had one quart since then. ANd still have plenty of oil left.
In my humble opinion, it works better than gun lub and is more cost effective.
I use hopps number 9 and mobile 1
Thats what Im thinking. Cause I use full synthetic oil in my truck and have had no engine problems in almost 3 winters up there.
All the cool kids are doing it.
I have to be different though, I use Rotella Synthetic.
Unless one had to worry about extremes, I suspect that non-synthetic would work fine too.
Hmmmm....I'm glad I checked out this thread. Real interesting. I'm going to have to give this a try. I've always used Break Free and now, Weapon Shield. If the synthetic motor oils are a better alternative, I'm game to give it a shot (no pun intended).
I used it last night. Awesome stuff. Just don't know how good it is for your hands. Lol.
And considering how much I used to oil up four guns. This quart will last lifetime. I used a Qtip and just dabbed it where I needed it.
