Remember these 5 words:
LUBRICATES – PENETRATES – CLEANS – PROTECTS – PRESERVES
If your gun oil is falling down on the job in any of these categories, chuck it!
Okay, stating the obvious here but it bears repeating…
Gun oil is a basic necessity for keeping your hand cannon clean and working in tip-top condition. If you don’t regularly clean and oil it properly, you’re risking excessive wear and tear.
Untreated gun parts grind against each other (not in a good way) and get worn out due to friction (again, not in a good way). Also, if you store your gun for long lengths of time, it’s imperative to properly clean it, oil it, and then store it in a safe and dry place.
A well-oiled gun will function as expected every time you pull the trigger!
If a gun has debris in the barrel or other parts, it may misfire or jam.
And that could cost you or a loved one their life!
Do your firearm a favor — get the right gun oil and and use it whenever you clean your gun.
Here’s 3 gun oils we highly recommend:

More reasons why we really, really dig it:
It’s made in the U.S.A.
It’s biodegradable, non-toxic & odorless
It’s environmentally-friendly formulated
There’s no fly-off for fully automatic weapons
It retains lubricity over extended periods of exposure
It reduces friction, eliminates residue and rust, neutralizes dust and dirt
It penetrates deep down to the dirt you can’t even see with your naked eye
Okay, here’s a couple more we think are amazing…
Lube Hoppe’s No. 9
Just a small amount of Hoppe’s No. 9, applied using the precision applicator, can reach the unseen areas of your gun and keep them free from rust and corrosion. This lube is highly viscous, ideal for weapons that are going to be used in adverse weather conditions of extreme heat or cold.
Hoppe’s No. 9 will not gum or evaporate when exposed to the elements, which is the most useful feature of this oil. Most oils evaporate soon after application and this can attract dust and residue on the areas where the oil was applied. But with Hoppe’s, you don’t need to worry about that.
M-Pro 7 Gun Oil LPX
M-Pro 7 Gun Oil is a heavy duty gun oil that will prevent your guns from rust, corrosion, excessive heat, dust, dirt, moisture, and salt water. Only a few drops are needed to make the action of your gun super smooth.
This is a silicon-free gun oil, and just a little oil is enough for most parts of the gun. You can also dab a drop or two and then apply it all over the surface and it will act as a protective barrier against moisture and rust.
This gun oil is slightly green, which lends a smooth finish to the gun’s surface. Kinda’ nifty, huh?
