    I have for years (50) used Remington gun oil, but came across a small bottle of ProShot 1 Step CLP.
    I started using it on my Colt 22 Lr. as I had been having some trouble with FTF starting a few years back.
    I had been doing full tear down for cleaning, so the gun was clean, but still almost every mag I would have a FTF .
    After using the CLP I have not had a single FTF with a total of 1000 rounds fired.
    And I started using it on all my hand guns.
    Funny thing is all the guns have shown a pronounced increase in accuracy. Not only me but also my wife's gun, it is so apparent that she has ask me what I did to her gun.

    For revolvers Remoil because it has a "handgunny" smell to it.
    No Remoil for my Ar15s tho.. its too thin.. there CLP or motor oil
    PS: Just remembered.. Used a lot of MPro7 too.

    For cleaners BTW love Gunzilla.

    I use Breakfree CLP and am completely satisfied with it. If I am putting a gun into long-term storage, I use Breakfree Long Term Corrosion Protection and it also works like a champ. I started buying the Breakfree in a liquid rather than in a spray. I like it far better and you get a lot more usable product for the money.

    been using BREAK FREE for over 30 years now, first on M16 and on my personal weapons and completely satisfied and happy with it. it's a one product that does everything cleans, lubes and protects.

    yeah, I'll leave the motor oil where it does most good and belongs, in the engine

    Not to mention something designed to protect and keep lubricated/clean a machine that is running at THOUSANDS of RPMs and insane internal temps will have no issues keeping a gun running. Been doing it for years to great effect. The only stuff I’ll use when I need my ARs “wet”.

    "SPECIALIST", made by WD40. A little pricey, but good stuff for thin lube. For heavy oil, IMO, you just can't beat Mobil1.
