The best brass valve oil is Ultrapure..period. Hey we could debate this too.

Anyway. I bought a couple needle oilers for both my horns and drum roll..why not guns? So far..so good.If the ultrapure were not so expensive I would use it in my vehicle.

What the hey..finally a thread that discusses oil.

I'll take a stab at it:
1) Musical instrument oil is probably lacking in EP additives.
2) Oil designed for brass instruments is probably not going to have great corrosion protection abilities.
3) Gun oils need to be creepy to seep into assemblies and permanently joined parts.
4) Great gun oil can be bought for $40 a gallon...

That's what I was going to say. And unless you're a competition shooter, a quart of Mobil 1 will all but last a lifetime, if all you use it on is weapons.

Another thing to consider is brass musical instruments have a human mouth applied to them in order to be played. That being the case, do these type of lubes fall under FDA guidelines as a, "Food Grade lubricant"? If so I'd walk away from it. Most food grade lubricants are plant ester based, and can spoil over time. We're seeing this all over the Internet with Frog Lube gumming up guns that have seen any appreciable storage time.

I love the comments..keep em coming. I will see how many thousands of rounds the 42 lasts with this oil. Seems glocks can go many thousands of rounds without cleaning or oiling. So given I regularly clean and oil (every 4 or 500 rounds) I will still outlive me.

like the idea of a voa on the oil though.

I liked 1 thru 3.
Your #4 would be a waste because three ounces of oil lasts me two years. Only things I oil with handguns are the barrel lug and whatever moves in the trigger parts. The rest gets lightweight grease.

When you manually open your slide and run it back & forth a few times, if it ain't quiet sliding and it sounds a little like grinding, it's need grease, not oil.

A friend handed me his Glock26, after stating he just shot 200 at the range and now 500 rounds fired without cleaning / oiling. Planning on leaving the gun dirty for another range visit the very next week. I unloaded it and worked the slide. My wife could hear it 20 feet away, in the open door bathroom.

Not good care given to that Glock. Use oils and grease on a handgun that fit the task. Not something that fits a trumpet or something toxic and smelly that works the inside of your car engine.

And there are literally thousands of lubricants in that category. Most all of them don't require the word "Gun" to appear on the label anywhere to do the job.... Unless paying more is a prerequisite.

I don't think it would be designed for a high temperature application
