Hey ATS I was talking to a friend of my one day, and we were talking about good brands of gun oil, I ALWAYS used Hoppes or Prolix (very good stuff BTW), and He said "All I use is 90w (Weight) synthetic GEAR oil."
I was a little put off at first until I tried it, clean and well lubricates my rifle, ALSO protects. You can buy it at ANY car store AND its not expensive and it LAST, a quart can last near six to eight months with regular shooting. So I just wanted to pass this nugget of info to you guys at ATS and ask if you guys know of any other oils that would be found and used in a SHTF type of world.
Hope this helped

Some out there use automatic transmission fluid as a cleaner as lube, and speak highly of it even now while the fan remains mostly excrement-free. With that said, nothing beats a good CLP designed for firearms.

I wouldn't personally use 90w though. Gun oils are usually very thin.
Yeah I got all confused squinty faced thinking about using something that heavy. I'm just going to round up teenagers and rub my guns on their faces.
