No, and I don't use gun oil in my car's crankcase. Why is there such an obsession to use automotive products on guns when there are exceptionally good gun products?

Iowegan, I agree 100%. I have way too much money wrapped up in guns and all the accessories, ammo, reloading, etc. to take chances with anything that is not designed for specific use in firearms. The cost of specifically designed lubes, grease, oil, cleaning solutions is small compared to the cost of a new firearm or a preventable gunsmith bill.

However, I have to ask, ifithityou, why do you ask? Is this something that you use on a regular basis and already have large quantities of? What is the basis for your question, reasoning for looking to use this product on your firearms?

Come on Iowegan you know the answer.........because they’re to cheap to buy gun oil.

Gun oil for guns, motor oil for motors. Its a pretty simple concept.

Sounds like the hype on a can of WD-40. There is really very little that is 'new' in the field of lubricants, at least that I'm aware of. It seems unlikely that any one product is going to suddenly render everything that preceded it obsolete. That's not to say that some products don't perform well in areas where they were not originally intended. ATF and acetone mixed 50-50 makes an excellent penetrating oil, as an example. So does Kroil, however, and you don't have to worry about the acetone evaporating.

At one time, I actually believed some of the hype that was attached to new lubricants. Not so much any more. I tend to find a good product and then stick with it. Buy it when it's on sale, and use it according to the manufacturer's directions.

I'm not going to wade into this debate except to wonder how much lube and other supplies we all use? I bought my first Hoppe's #9 solvent and oil in 1985, when I got my first firearm, a Mossberg New Haven I still use. So cost has never been a factor in my choices.

The plastic squeeze bottle of gun oil that came in my 1985 cleaning kit ran out about 5 years back. I still have the solvent in its glass bottle. Might be collectible by now

I would guess that I go through no more than a few ounces of all products in a year. I shoot at least monthly, usually twice, and hunt in the Fall and Winter. I clean my guns after every time shooting, even if it's a single shot.

In my cars and tractors I'm an Amsoil guy, a dealer in fact. It's primo priced but worth it. If I used it in my guns, I'd probably spend more!

Each to his own. I'm not a novice when it comes to hand guns, and money is not a deciding factor. But honestly, I've used Mobil 1 synthetic for years, in lieu of grease, on semi-auto sliding components; and Rem-Oil or Eezox for everything else.

I use GM oil in my Chevy, Honda oil in my Honda car, Harley Davidson oil in my Harley. I do not use any of those on my guns. Gun cleaning is done with Kroil and Hoppes #9, lube is with CLP. All of this has worked very well for me for many years. Cannot justify spending hundreds/thousands of dollars on firearms or vehicles and then "cheaping" out on oil trying to save a few pennies.

I use extra virgin olive oil when cleaning and lubing my guns.

I mix it with a bit of white vinegar, a pinch of salt and a shake of pepper. Put it on a fresh salad and have a snack while I wait for the Hoppe's to soak into the barrels and internal mechanisms of the guns.

Works for me.
