I have switched to using the silicon based products such as RemOil for most of my guns.
I always use RemOil. Cleans well and has prevented rust, so I can't complain.
I use remington or hoppes oil for mine.
Try the Rust Inhibitor line of products. A sales rep gave me some of this stuff 5 years ago and I was totally amazed. It does what it says. I now buy it and recommend it to my friends. Good stuff!
I use Ballistol and have never had any issues.....RemOil got a little sticky on me once (maybe that was due to some other grime or something though.
I like Clenzoil (spelling?) because it will not soak into nice wood and turn it dark. It is hard to find and expensive but one bottle has lasted me 8 years so far. Think Midway has it.
i use zero friction , or tri flow to oil actions and moving parts . and wipe my guns down with rem oil
For a general oil to prevent rust and lightly clean I use RemOil. Remington's Bore cleaner is much better for a preliminary cleaning after a big day at the range/out in the field.
Rem oil and Hoppe's are my choices.
My favorite is Mobil 1 10-W30. It is a very good oil, never gets sticky, and doesn't gum up in the arctic cold like RemOil (and most others) will.
I love that stuff!
I think the best lubricant is a dry lub such as militec or a quality dry chain lubricant, these stay dry, slick and wont gum no matter how cold or wet it gets.
I like the Break Free products. Military uses them so I think they must be okay.
