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. :image035:

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.

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.

Just placed an order for Gunzilla, thanks to you guys:smile:Will see how it works on my 1911s and AR. Actually Ed's Red works fine and cheap, but that kerosene odor is pretty STRONG and it lingers around. The commander in chief starting to throw fits. i clean my FAs inside our room,hehehe.
best,
Joe

I saw that recipe in a recent tread here. Guy was writing about ATF and why it works better then most gun oils.

Tried Gunzilla for the first time tonight on my 1911, It works well.

Tip: Get a travel size hair spray bottle from Target to apply it. Otherwise you waist a lot of it.
