    I try to give things a good try before I quit. As with most things, you have to give them a real chance.

    The problems didn't really manifest themselves either, until I started to use it on more things, and not just the one gun. Thats when things really went downhill.

    I tried Fireclean... not especially good or bad. It was hard to clean off thoroughly. Frog Lube, about the same.
    Mobile 1 is easier and works quite well. Lucas Marine Grease is useful in the summer months. Both are cost effective.

    The lubrication cited in this thread isn't the only stuff that gun owners (and anyone else) should shy away from... The one I have the most experience with is Three in One oil - what I was first introduced to all those years ago (I'm 71 now) by my Dad... I didn't find out until years later that over time it turns into varnish....

    I do a fair amount repair on fishing reels - and can't remember how many fixes - only needed that stuff removed after it had gummed up the works. I've occasionally gotten five gallon buckets full of reels to repair from commercial hook and liners fishing in the salt and I can tell at a glance if a reel has had that stuff in it.

    I'm sure that for folks that carefully clean and lube their weapons after each use it's never a problem - but use it then put a firearm away for a few years and you'll see what I mean...

    Funny thing -whenever I want a high quality light oil for fishing reels - I always reach for something like Gunslik or Break Free...

    I put coconut oil on my arms. Its better than anything the doctor gave me RX wise. On my guns not so much. My wife would kill me if ants invaded the gun room. I will stick to using stuff I can't eat for my gun lube needs.

    Try rubbing alcohol or just make your own like we do down here in the Swamps!

    rcmodel pointed out that the top of his 3 in 1 oil can was rusted. So was the one we had around the house. That sort of tells you something about how well it prevented corrosion.

    Coconut oil is excellent for eczema. Better than anything the Dr gave my daughter. I also use it for cooking and for massages. Coconut oil is more of a fat than an oil unless you live where there are actually coconuts growing.

    You can buy fractionated coconut oil if you just want to use coconut oil for your guns. Certain fatty acids are removed to lower the melting point. I dont know of anything to just stir in that would work though.

    Step two type in Unicorn Dick lube
    Step3 you get the guys picture, click on it.

    I can just access it directly with a google.

    The profanity filters are getting the URL, it's actually rather humorous. Copy and paste the URL, and then type out BS to to it's full non truncated form, and the link will work.

    I just want to know what the frogs think, did anyone even THINK to ask them. Why all you guys are so insensitive to the plight of frogs. Could you imagine being compared in importance to a ... coconut??

    Just what I thought, VERY QUIET. At the pond.






    :p

    I use Mobil 1 engine oil. I also use it in my truck. Nice thing is, if I forget to bring my bottle to the range to lube my gun before shooting.
    I can just pull out the dip stick and use a few drops off of it to lube the gun.

    Yes, FIREClean has been reported to be just canola oil.

    When I change the oil in my vehicles, I get the last drippings out of the jug (usually 2 oz). Over the years I have filled a 32oz bottle of engine oil. Gun oil for life and I didn't pay any extra.
