You will get every name in the book including motor oil. I like Weapon Shield.

Hoppes #9 is a solvent, not a lube. Rem oil is ok, but too thin for some applications. I use FP-10 and Slip 2000

Let's not get sidetracked with a bunch of favorite name brands, overall CARE is what's called for. I took a kid shooting years ago. He said he had his own 22. I said 'let's see it'. He brought it out & there it was, fairly new with a light coat of rust almost everywhere. Before we went shooting I got some supplies & we went over gun care. I think he had put the gun away damp at some time earlier.

I never leave a damp or wet gun, of course I hunt in wet conditions at times. Depending on how wet a guy needs to dry the gun off then do a light oil rubdown with a cloth, maybe off the stock if it's bad. If a gun is stored for a while it should have a light going over once in a while. This applies after it has been cleaned previously,wipedown & lightly oiled patch down the bore. For longer storage move over to 'RIG' grease.

All the fancy rods & cleaners/oils are of little use if not used diligently. Sorry but I'm a stickler for gun care & don't accept 'a little rust' anywhere.

I have Break-Free, with teflon, some Sheath, mil-spec 'cold temp' small arms & a few others on the bench. Then there's the Hoppes #9,Shooters Choice, & Montana Extreme in the 'bore cleaner category. JMHO

#9 is an amazing solvent. It stinks real bad but it works. As long as you give it proper time to set on the metal. I had my gas pistons from my SKS and AK sitting in that #9 for about 2 days and I was able to effortlessly wipe that carbon stain right off. I wasnt able to do that no matter how hard I worked on it before I let it soak in #9. REM oil, is ok at best. I have a can and it lubes meh, cleans ok, protects? idk thats where it falls apart since its gone 2 weeks later.... I have some winchester break free clp I got from walmart and that is a good lube. I dont know how well it works as a cleaner but its a really nice lube. My mosin nagant bolt glides with it.

Actually not super bad, but make sure the Rem oil is the good variety with VCI's. It comes in a pump bottle. But you will need a heavier oil and a light grease.

I like Amsoil MP for a light-medium spray lube. Amsoil Spray grease. A drop or two of Ballistol.

Hoppe's #9 is a all time great powder solvent.

Ed's Red, moly grease and ATF grace my bench, I've seen no reason to change yet.

Miltec TW-25B

Synthetic suspension that's very light and stays where put.

Factory issue on all SIG's.

Milspec too.

I agree on Hoppe's #9 for cleaning. Been around the block and tries a bunch and still for a quick after shooting bore clean, #9 is still tops.

I got two small tubes of TW25B. Seems slippery and all, but it truly is a very light grease, white and milky like. Way lighter than even an #1 automotive grease. I'll still use Amsoil red spray grease for slides and the like.

For general spraying and soaking Amsoil MP is hard to beat. Better than WD-40 IMHO.
