    for storage purposes it does not dry like rem oil or hoppes it does not cause the metel to rust i kept my ak in storage for 6 months with this new motor oil and it keeps the gun fresh and wet. works wonders you should try it some time!

    I use bore solvent on mine, never had any rust of any kind on it. And I mostly shoot it on rainy days now. But my climate may vary from yours. :D

    every mechanical device needs lubrication. if you dont lube your ak47 it will wear out much faster same as any other gun. even single shot shotguns need lube. muskets and black powder rifles need lube. hell even a longbow needs lube on the bow string!!!

    If it hadn't been for scientific research I'd be a little more up set over the lose of a good ham sammich.

    For my Ak I use a mixture of penetrating oil and bore solvent, made by Kroil. I shoot 1950s chinese ammo and don't need my AK 'wet' to cut down on the fouling.

    I bought a bottle of Lucas gun oil to try it out. I am 99% positive it is Transmission Fluid. Same color, texture, smell, etc. (no didn't taste it)

    It works pretty well doesn't leave a residue. I've heard of some guys that swear by using ATF as gun lube but I could have bought two qts. for what these few ounces cost. lol

    My AR likes it wet, and my AK could care less. So I use the solvent/oil that doesn't leave it 'wet' for my personal cleaning pleasure.
    I've never had a misfire, jam or any issues with it yet.
    I do however use Amsoil for my bike. :D

    1 quart of ATF lasts a long time, and is great, as a " let it sit, wipe off the

    soot later" cleaner. Brush solvent also cleans metal well, for active wiping,

    but is highly flammable; it will mostly evaporate,however.

    Mobil1 is a great GP lube, and works well for me, for long storage.

    I believe Michail designed them to be lubed with goat grease or duck butter. Mobil 1 will work very well.

    I've used it on tons of things but never guns, I usually use it for drilling holes in tough object or sometimes tapping.

    I might have to start carrying a quart when I go camping might help.
