I'm about to try Prolix

http://www.prolixlubricant.com/

I'll let everyone know how it works.

I agree that Rem Oil is not that good of a product. I've used a few cans when I could find nothing else on the shelf.

Break Free has always been standard issue and works great. I notice that they do now have a Citrus based cleaner which is what Prolix has gone towards.

Amsoil metal protector works real good especially when guns are stored.

Teflon oil is fine on the exterior surfaces of a firearm. It is not good to oil a barrel with. Teflon, and the combination of the explosion and combustion that goes on inside a firearm doesn't make a good mix.


A top gunsmith warned me against the use. Traces are left in the bore and on shooting teflon will turn to an acid which is used for etching glass, it can damage the bore and might be poisonous or a carcinogen!

His advise was Mobil 1 0W-20, or ATF.

The claim that PTFE (Teflon) in gun oils turns in to hydrofluoric acid upon firing has been discussed and debunked in several threads on various gun boards -- at least to my satisfaction. Do searches at The High Road, The Firing Line, etc. The bottom line seems to be that in theory a few molecules of hydrogen fluoride gas could form, but it wouldn't form an acid unless you add water, and even then the quantities would be negligible.

I have used Remoil for years for all sorts of things, including firearms. A little goes a long way. The Teflon stays put long after the oil has gone away and continues to lubricate. Especially good for locks and hinges. I have even used it to lubricate delicate electronics like tape decks with no problems.

Specific to Remington gun oil ‘with teflon’…….. Remington must have fairly recently changed the ingredients/additives to this. What I am experiencing is that the ‘earlier’ versions of the oil were extremely light and would “crawl” long the surface. The newer version of the oil is thicker and does not ‘self spread’ like earlier. Also, when you shake the bottle, the earlier version creates a ‘foam’ whereas the newer version does not. Both cans/bottles say it has Teflon additive and that it’s the same oil since (some date). But it's not. In addition to that, the earlier bottles have a lighter green label than the ‘newer’ bottles. And yet, Remington claims it is the same oil they’ve been producing for many years. Has anyone else noted this? Where can I find the ‘good old stuff?’

Been using this stuff for years. Locks, hinges, etc.

Can be a little hard to find.


Super Lube is top quality stuff, IMO. I use it for everything. Guns, fishing reels, hinges, anything that can take grease.The really nice thing is not only does it work very well, but it's also food safe, so there are no worries about any sort of toxicity from it. You could literally eat it. You wouldn't want to, I'm sure, but you could.

RemOil great for a wipe down exterior finish. Only use Archoil LP 4400 or Flitz bore cleaner on internals.
