Also, get some of these:

You can also get syringes at Tractor Supply to apply the oil. I have some Mobile 1 20W50 synthetic but have not had a chance to try it out yet.

Bottom right is Mobil-1. Top middle is Break-Free.
Mobil 1 is for lube. I could rub CLP together with my fingers and make it burn off.

Sure, but that's not what was asked. I asked how well it stored your gun long term.

I don't want to worry about cleaning/lubing my gun and putting it up, then coming back to a rusty gun. I want an oil that will both lubricate and protect and there are many gun specific products that will do just that.

If you want to use motor oil on your gun you are certainly welcome to do so.

One idea for for semi long term storage is lots of oil and wrap with kitchen shrink wrap or similar. I'm not one for the heavy gunk like the military. Depending on how long, remove any wood if it's easy. I did that on an old pistol. Grips in one plastic bag and the frame in another plastic arm with lots of oil.

I would not use ATF as it has no lubricating properties. It is a hydraulic fluid, not an oil.

It has detergents/cleaning properties. Thats why when mixed with Mobil 1 it works very well inside AR15 BCG's.

Absolutely untrue. Every piston engine has some sort of crank case ventilation system where fresh outside air (and its humidity) are introduced.

You didnt say you were mixing it. ATF has no lubricity and thats what I want on my BC, not something that cleans...Ill "clean" my AR when Im done shooting it.

50/50 Mobil AND ATF usually means mixing it bud. 50/50 means half and half. Not sure how to be more clear about mixing it. I posted that on the first page of this thread, probably the part you did not bother to read.

Easy hoss. I stand corrected on that...you did indeed say that, however, I still dont recommend using ATF. After I am done shooting, I will CLEAN my rifle, then LUBRICATE it with OIL, not hydraulic fluid.

But thats me...to each their own. Over the years Ive seen guys who "lube" with everything from furniture wax to silicone spray, so if it makes you feel good to use hydraulic fluid on your AR, more power to ya.

Regards.

There's nothing more entertaining than watching two grown men ready to duke it out over which lubrication is best for an AR bolt.

Not sure how many fights you have been in and or seen, were not even close to "duke'n it out" Just some banter.

Heh heh. Thats funny, because Im a Ham Radio operator, and just last night was listening to a couple old timers on 80 meters arguing about the impedance of a dipole antenna when using a balun verse not.

Smokey: I'm not...
Walter Sobchak: A world of pain.
Smokey: Dude, he's your partner...
Walter Sobchak: [shouting] Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one around here who gives a **** about the rules? Mark it zero!
The Dude: They're calling the cops, put the piece away.
Walter Sobchak: Mark it zero! [points gun in Smokey's face]
The Dude: Walter...

Interesting idea and a lot cheaper than the synthetic gun oils but isn't a bit heavy to use? Which weight are you using? Curious. Thanks!
