    Sounds pretty thick to me. I think your viscosity is too heavy. I wouldnt trust this in cold weather. YMMV.

    Dont forget the WD-40,PB rust bust and a shot of Marvel Mystery oil. Should be more slippery than goose poop going thru a goose.

    Interesting you would decide on that recipe. The Armalite AR web site recommends, if you're out "under the wire" & have lost immediate access to modern, dedicated gun cleaning/lube products, there a lot to be said for cleaning with ATF (Dexron) and lubing with synthetic motor oil.

    Seems easier to buy the Gunzilla than mixing up a half gallon concoction of oils and fluids, but that OMO.
    But hey whatever works, it's all good!

    I had seen a recipe similar to this a few years ago, but didn't write it down to try it. Does it work well?

    Edit. That was a dumb question, you wouldn't have posted it if it didn't work. Kindly disregard.
