    I recently ran out of Hops #9 oil, and had some left over BMW fully synthetic 5w-30 engine oil. I refilled the bottle with the BMW oil, and used it to oil my glock a few months ago. I just went to the range, and shot 300 rounds. When I got home, I field stripped my glock, and realized that the barrel and slide rails still were wet with oil. I have never previously found wet oil in a glock that had hundreds of rounds though it. Fully sunthetic engine oil works great, lasts long, and is 15 to 20 times cheaper then Hops gun oil.

    Yeah, synthetic motor oil is way over-engineered for pistols, it's the best option IMO.

    Here is a detailed thread that really gives a good account of what is in each grade and a whole bunch of other specs-

    Hoppe's regular (#9) oil is some of the worst I've seen when it comes to corrosion protection. My older G23 has bare steel frame rails and one of those rails developed a spot of surface rust while it was literally dripping in that oil. Most gun oils do a good job protecting against rust but Hoppe's oil doesn't. Their "Elite" oil doesn't do much better.

    You are absolutely correct sir, I have about half a bottle of Mobil 1 5W-30 fully synthetic left and it works great.

    Hoppes #9 is a cleaning solvent. I don't use oil as a substitute. If you want oil then yes motor oil is a good lubricant.

    2 things

    "wet with oil" sounds like you did not read the manual that came with the gun.

    Synthetic oil has a temp range that it is for
    your gun gets hot and the high temp synthetic is Very expensive.

    i've heard recommendations for mobil 1, et al, but i've also heard that the motor oils lack rust inhibitors and the like that are needed for firearms.

    any clarification is welcome!

    Ive been using breakfree LP for a while now with good results. It stays put and lasts for a long time. This works good for my CCW.

    If your Glock is to serve as a carry gun, you might wish to reconsider your lubrication options. For my carry guns, I use a high quality silicone spray (CRC Heavy Duty) and/or a quality dry lube such as Hornady's One Shot. The reason is simple. Oils and greases attract dirt and lint. These products I mentioned keep that to a minimum. This is desirable for a carry gun.

    and how is the add pak in that synthetic motor oil going to react with the gun cleaning solvents that you may use.

    Motor oils have a pretty healthy dose of corrosion/rust inhibitors.

    Check out the BITOG forums- they offer a wealth of info about motor oils and there's a couple of forums where they post analysis of new and used motor oils.

    I doubt there would any noticeable functioning difference in a Glock using the most or least expensive gun lubricant as long as it was used properly.

    Unfortunately, this is only your opinion, and with anecdotal data.

    If you had a large enough sample size of identically configured guns with 1/3 lot using Hoppe's, 1/3 lot using something else and 1/3 lot with no oil, for some duration of time then maybe we could arrive at scientifically sound conclusions.

    Anything less is just really conjecture.
