    Gunzilla...can find it here on this site....

    What kind of weapon?
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I saw a post on another site that mentioned Synthetic oil (10W-30). It was much cheaper than his regular gun oil and it worked very well, according to him.

    Ok, my 2 cents... Forget "gun" oil. It's just something that people buy because they're into guns. A high quality synthetic motor oil is made of better ingredients, is more effective, and is MUCH cheaper. If it can protect a high temp engine at 4k rpm, it can lubricate the moving parts of your gun while it cycles. Ten bucks will buy you a lifetime supply. I prefer Mobil 1.

    I use WeaponShield for everything. It's a CLP Cleans/Lubricates/Protects.

    It's all that I use these days. Gunzilla is also a great product but, I have a case of large bottles of WeaponShield and I love the stuff.

    It's an incredibly low drag low friction lubricant and the more you use it the easier your firearm is to clean.

    I'll get you the link.

    So I have no experience with motor oil as a gun lubricant, but as a bicycle mechanic who has seen numerous bikes come into the shop with their chains covered in a thick coat of 10w40- avoid it like the plague for anything other than the inside of your engine.
    Motor oil is MUCH more viscous than your standard gun oil (or chain oil!), besides being sticky, and therefore collects copious amounts of dirt on whatever it is applied to. I know your gun probably comes in contact with a lot less dirt than the average bike chain, but I imagine the same principle could end up being detrimental to the action of your gun if you go long enough between cleanings and allow dust to build up.

    That being said, if medicineball has had good experience with it, it sure is cheap...

    I've used motor oil on all my guns for 40+ years, works wonderfully.

    I don't think it matters but most people leave too much on.

    Gunzilla is my current favorite. I found WeaponShield to pick up too much dust in my dry, dusty climate.
    In the heat of the moment, what matters is what your body knows -- not what your mind knows.

    I use hoppes elite to clean and either hoppes lubrication or Remington gun grease to lube. I use the Remington where the copper anti seize used to be on my glock ( before I scrubbed it off like an idiot ) it comes in a syringe type tube, it stays but and as far as I can tell it doesn't gum up or get sticky. I use the hoppes for the trigger mechanism and for the barrel.
