General Firearms Discussion / Re: What lubes/CLP are you using
« Last post by Martimus on Today at 09:39:32 AM »
Depending on the gun, I use either Tri-flow, Mobil 1 or Wilson's Ultima-lube.

BTW-Just be cautious if you use Frog Lube on your AR's and they are stored for any length of time in the Southern Arizona heat.  We found out that it tends to make the AR's sticky and sluggish to the point of stoppage unless the guns are stripped, degreased and lubed after storage. 

Here's the link:  http://arizonagunowners.com/index.php/topic,5605.0.html

What's odd is that I've used Frog Lube on my AR's for the last couple of years and I've never experienced the above issue.  My guess is that it has a lot to do with the process that each individual follows.  Just proves the saying "Your mileage may vary!"...

I think  a clean gun is more important than what oil or grease to use.
If you keep your guns clean you should have no problems no matter what oil you use.
Contrary to popular belief I clean my guns every time I shoot them.

I don't get caught up in all the hoopla about what cleaners or oil you should be using.
I have no real preference when it comes to oil.
Any good light weight oil will work.

If you go to the hardware store and buy the bottles of oil they have in the cooler department it will work just fine.
It is as good as any other light weight oil.
It even comes in a bottle with a spout that can get into any part of the gun and is only a couple dollars.

The only time I only used one lubricant was when I was in the service.
Then it was LSA weapons oil.

One lubricant I do not use is Break Free in the aerosol cans.

As far as dusty conditions.
This is Arizona you will have dust.
Definitely not caught up in it. But I want something that won't evaporate in the heat or just run out of the gun. I was thinking is there an oil that works better or is grease better suited. I don't prefer grease so I'll just stick with what I've been doing

I've given froglube 2 tries. First time the paste and last time the liquid. I just don't like it. I gave the paste to me buddy in Florida that wanted to try it cause I wasn't using it. I like mpro7 and weapon shield, slip2k and g96 also. I like Balistol but I hate the smell of it. I have 2 cans of it in the garage just sitting.

Although they may not be capable, the wealth of knowledge would be priceless in any crisis. I'm only 50 but have experiences and information that the younger (spoiled) generation will never have and the older generation can say the same about me. So if your "group" doesn't have an "old guy," you might want to add one.

Optics / Re: fixed power scopes
« Last post by JT on Today at 07:45:08 AM »
4X32 was the go to scope for a long time. The 3-9x40 variable became the go to scope after they got better. The 1st variables were not too reliable. My 308 carries a 3-9x40. My 223 bolt carries a 4-12x40. My 357 rifle is carrying a 1.75-4x28 shotgun scope with a 50 yard parallax. I was looking for a 2.5x fixed but could not find one with the 50 yard parallax except for rimfire. It is getting harder to find fixed power scopes but a good fixed is better than a cheap variable for about the same money.

Hoppe's Elite Gun Oil.  A few drops, goes a long way.  Non-toxic, odor free, bio-degradable, and non-flammable.

I also use it on my folding knives, pliers, scissors, etc.  Anything with a snug joint that still needs to move.
