I'm on my way out in a bit to try and sight in an AR at a local outdoor range (and then have a little fun).

I've read to keep the AR wet, and wet to me is dripping. My Glocks get one drop of CLP on a Q-tip and that gets spread around on barrel, slide, and trigger bar / connector.

What does 'wet' mean to you, and which product should I be taking with me?

Thanks.

I do not care for RemOil,......it does not seem to handle the heat and burns off.
Many like Mobil 1 engine oil, I plan on trying it in the near future.

Wet,.........I lube my bolt and carried by placing 3-4 drops of oil on the bolt.
I spread them around with my finger. I place 6-8 drops on the carrier, spread with finger.
I then assemble the bolt carrier group, then I extend the bolt and place one drop
in at the pivot pin opening, retract and repeat.

Keep in mind, that's just my opinion,.......you will get many over the next few days.

This is what I do (above). I have also tried automatic transmission fluid, and I liked it too.

Slip 2000 works better, as does Militec, but CLP is what the gov issues. It does work, just not the best.

Usually i'll do much like FAA, wipe a fingerful along the bottom and sides of teh BCG and another on the bolt.

Between those two I would pick CLP. I can't say I have used remoil on my BCGs but most people say it sucks.

I use Ballistol (not saying its better than CLP, just what I use most often), and you may not actually have to run it that wet, but it probably wouldn't hurt to do so.

CLP should do fine, never used Mobil 1 but I hear a lot about it and it certainly seems like it would be cost-effective compared to regular gun oils.

I've heard of many using trans fluid, it's a GREAT cleaner!
A friend's Grandfather always used it on bolt rifles

Yep rem oil is way to light for the AR , burns off after just a few shots! I use 5W30 when I clean my BCG I slather it down with a old TB as I assemble it, coat the rest of the BCG !:supergrin:

The CLP went with because that's what I had. Got the rifle sighted in without much trouble and put about 100 rounds down range. Need to actually count what I brought home.

Didn't occur to me that 100 yards was too far to walk when I wanted to check my targets. Time to find a spotting scope - luckily I was able to borrow one. I surprised myself and kept most rounds inside a 12" shoot-n-see at 100yds.

Also need to take some 193 with me next time. Couldn't use the 855 on the steel targets.

Live and learn I guess. Thanks for the advice!

I like the SLIP2000 but am going to give the motor oil a go next.

The search for lube for me ended with Slip 2000 EWL. I keep the BCG nice and wet, and the chamber lubed.

Remoil sucks, almost anything is better. I prefer Slip 2000 EWL.

I've got two bottles of Slip I'll try out after the Militec 1 is gone.

Im just about out of the SLIP so Ill give the Militec 1 a try. I cant remember, is the Militec 1 the Walmart version of Mobile 1?

Anybody else use wheel bearing grease? Seems to work great for me. Cheap too.

Skip rem oil. CLP is fine as are many other options out there.

Three out of four of my AR's like this stuff. I can get away with a light coating on the rail surfaces and run hundreds of rounds without issue and it cleans easily. My other rifle does not like the stuff and I run it on Royal Purple synthetics

slip2000. Have used slip2000, EWL, and EWL30. EWL30 is my favorite. Bought a large bottle which should last about a decade.

I like cleaning with Rem-Oil as it helps the carbon gunk stick to the rag.

For lube I like the Hoppes gun oil type oils. 1911 rails and AK rails get the
white TFW stuff.

That shows how much I know about lubricants. Where can I get Militech?
