For those of you that have been using Mobil 1 or other "non-Gun" oils on your guns, what do you put it in? I like using it but really like the Spray Rem oil because of ease of use. I would prefer to use the Mobil 1 but can't find something suitable to put it in to make it handy.

The Brownells needle oiler is cheap and handy.
But the needle is too small gauge for motor oil or other high viscosity lube. You have to squeeze HARD to get out a drop at a time. Likewise the Micro Drop - I got mine at the car parts store for half the price - does not put out motor oil very well.

I don't know that you will find a good spray for small amounts of anything as heavy as motor oil.

The plastic nipple on the Breakfree bottle seems about the right diameter.
I have one recyled to fill with my army surplus lube oil.

In lieu of a spray, my gunsmith dribbles oil on a brush and swabs metal surfaces. I use a shaving brush with the bristles shortened by about half.

Bottles that eye drops come in, or other small bottles that perscription drugs come in that have a drop at a time spout.

The energy shot bottles are great for storing liquids. If you tighten enough, they never leak. A Q-tip works for oils and the high quality Q-tips are even better. These are for cosmetic use.

I have been buying Royal Purple synthetic lube "samples" from Amazon. It comes in a nice dropper bottle. More expensive than buying a quart of Mobile 1 but much more convenient.

Buying Rem-Oil and CLP at Walmart is more expensive then buying motor oil but more convenient too.

How dang much oil do you guys use on guns anyway that you have to buy it by the Quart to save money??

I'm still working on a spray can of Rem-Oil I bought probably 5 years ago!
And the black plastic CLP bottle is so old I can't read the label any more.

I don't buy any oil by the quart for my guns.

I change my own oil in my 2 vehicles every 5,000 miles. After the oil change the bottles are turned upside down and allowed to drain for a few hours and there is my gun oil. I normally use either Mobil 1 or Pennzoil Platinum both synthetic oils. The 4 to 5 empty quart bottles give me way more than enough oil. In fact the last few oil changes I haven't even bothered as I have plenty in stock.

My cost $ .00.

THAT's the frugal way!
I use the same method to oil my lathe ways. And my handguns.

I strongly recommend this: My son and I have both used one for some time. NO leaks and can put 1/2 drop or big drop exactly where you want it. in the gun. All aluminum with o-rings. Fits in the OE gunbox next to the pistol. Holds enough Mobil 1 for for many many oilings. Was about $10-$11

I bought these:

The picture shows 2 liter bottles but they work with quart oil jugs.

I screw two of my oil jugs together at a time put it up for a day or two. That drains everything out of the top one and into the bottom one. Repeat until all of your nearly empty oil jugs are drained into one.

Aviation oil is too dang expensive to let even a drop go to waste.

I'm sure I can spare some to use on my guns.

I use those needle oil bottles as well. It works beautifully for even straight motor oil. 10W-30 is NOT too viscous (90 weight oil might be...).

i just leave mine in the quart bottles they come in......

when i need to oil something, i dip my finger in and rub it on the parts......works well enough for me.

i usually apply it with a cleaning patch. or a toothpick if i actually need a drop. any small bottle will make it more convenient to use than a quart, and much less of a mess if you happen to tip one over :what::banghead::cuss:!

I found these at the Container Store. FYI not all bottles that eye drops come in are petroleum resistant and can be slowly dissolved by the oil in them.

Ah, but these are Nalgene and stated to be resistant to oil.
I like them. Too bad they don't actually have any of the 1/2 oz. Wish they made a 1 oz.

If I am going in the field and want a small container to take with me I have thoroughly cleaned out after use--- the Lucas Oil "Fuel Treatment" bottle or two. (small bottle) > Use a small funnel to get whatever oil you are using to put in there.

True, True. But I have not found that to be a problem. I also get perscription meds that come in a 25 ml bottle with the drop dispenser that works fine.

I use some small (about 2" high) squeeze bottles my wife found at Wal-Mart. I think she got them from the cosmetics aisle.

Bonus: they don't sweat Mobil 1 through the sides like some of the other bottles I tried. They didn't sweat much, just enough to leave an oily patch wherever they sat, but it was annoying.

I got one of those gadgets as shown in post #11 and thought it pretty neat.
I picked it up yesterday to find the cap full of oil. It is not leakproof, at least mine isn't.

Mine seals up nice and tight and does not collect even a drop of oil, dispite being stored tip down in a cup.

The only problem I have had is that you need to unscrew the top and put it back on every once in a while to break the vacuum and keep the oil flowing.

I'm using 20W50 synthetic motor oil in it.

When I started using Mobil 1 for certain firearm lubrication jobs I simply put it in an empty Remoil bottle I had been saving for months. I use a 50/50 mix of Lucas Gun Oil and 5W30 Mobil 1 for semi-auto slide lube in the winter, dispensing it from the handy spout on the 2 fl.oz. Lucas bottle.
