    I saw a short discussion on gun oils. I use Rem oil exclusively and have never had any trouble until this year. I clean my weapons thoroughly at least twice a year whether I shoot them or not. This year most of my rifles wanted to stick as I used the action to put in a shell. It was cold both mornings.

    My bro-in-law had some break free for me to use. Got the job done. This is all he ever uses once he has cleaned the weapon. His guns are in very good condition. Does anyone else just use break free as a cleaner and lubricator?

    I've used BreakFree CLP for as long as I can remember and never had any problems with it.

    I have used break free in the past on things that were rusted and needed taking off. Just never thought about using it on my weapons. See you learn something new everyday. Thanks guys.

    Are there any tricks to using it? Is it ok to get on the wood?

    I've never had any problems with Rem-oil either. I like it because of the teflon. I like the aerosol Rem-oil because it evaporates pretty quick and doesn't leave much/any oil on moving parts to gum anything up. It does help slick things up though. However, I shot 2 deer Monday and got misfires from light primer strikes on both and had to re-strike the primer a couple of times to do the job. This was in one of my NEFs though, so it wasn't oil in the action gummed up because of the cold. That's all sealed up. All I can figure is that there was condensation in there that froze up and kept the fp from moving like it should have.

    I have been using the Rem oil wipes- so I can carry in the field with me. Maybe that is my problem. I have recently cleaned all my weapons (wifey is mad at me for spending tooooo much time with them) with break free and was very suprised. I will (have changed) to break free from now on. I appreciate all the feedback and please add more.

    Another vote for BreakFree. Like to use RemOil on the outside, and BreakFree on the inside (for most firearms).

    Break free isn't even close to WD40. Don't use WD40 on your guns, or anything else that you care about for that matter.

    I really like Ballistol but you have to order it, otherwise I vote for Rem oil.

    For those who use Rem oil, do you clean with something else?
