    This is exactly how I do it... No issues yet and it does seem to wear less than just using CLP on the outside of the BCG. It feels a little smoother when you work the action too.

    I have an extra quart of Penziol Platinum Synthetic oil 5W-10. I though I would give it a try on one of my uppers.

    All run like a dream on CLP and REMoil, but it is an easy experiment to run.

    Today I had a few (6 out of 100) failures to fire with American Eagle Ammo 55grn, good primer strike too. Did it in all three uppers, never with any other of the 5 ammo types I had today, so it is ammo related.

    What weight motor oil are you guys using?

    I am thinking about switching to motor oil because gun oil seems to evaporate. I'm a M1 fan myself.

    Well, another idea would be gear oil. Synthetic doesn't have that smell. 75w90 will work fine but there is also the 75w140.

    ATF! Stinks but it's cheap and works well.

    For all you FrogLube guys, I've seen a few people claim it's the same as Thompson Center Natural Lube 1000 and a lot more expensive.

    I)'be been using oil since 1985,.....never had a lube related issue.

    I use the same 0-20 mobil one that that I use in my truck...when I feel that it's not high speed enough sometimes, I pour it in a black bottle that has SEAL slick penciled in on the side and I light a $10 on fire...I feel better about myself then.

    Plain old gun greese works well....but you should clean your weapon after each use, in SHTF switch to a light gun oil and don't over lub your rifle.

    For an AR I think it's better to err on the side of more. Not less.

    I'm liking FrogLube.
