    does anyone use this? I lube my gun with amsoil synthetic oil and it works great. I coat everything with oil and then wipe it down and have never had an issue with rust but was thinking about trying the MP. What are your thoughts?

    It has nearly the same qualities as Eezox. A friend used the Amsoil MP on his Harley's chrome

    What does the MP stand for?

    No, I don't use pyramid scheme products on my guns or my cars.

    Never heard of Eezox, do you think it would be better than what I'm doing now?

    not sure what scheme you are talking about but I'm not asking for opinions about Amsoil, I have been using it in my trucks and tractors since the 80's and will continue to do so. It has definitely proven itself over and over. My only question is would I be better off using the MP on my guns or continue doing what I'm doing now

    I have used it on a lot of different things. I just have not tried it on any of my guns yet. May give it a try and see what happens

    No pyramid products here, either. I use hoppes and any light gun oil on my glocks. Hoppes and CLP, Militec, Kroil, JB paste, etc. etc. on my 1911.

    Big difference between AMSOIL and AMWAY! :rofl::rofl::rofl:
    Amsoil is THE best synthetic oil on the planet! If you chose not to use it,....GREAT!

    All synthetic oil is better than petroleum based oil IMO

    +1 I use Amsoil in my motorcycles and it makes them run cooler & shift smoother.

    I really like Slip2000 products. They are non-toxic and do a good job. I lube with their 30w lube and am very pleased with it.

    My wife had a 99 Kawasaki Nomad that the oil pump drive sheared off, Kawasaki warrantied the motor, tore it down, the rings, pistons & bearings were all still OK after the pump drive sheared off. They did put in all new parts because they were already there. Proof enough for me that it works. Amsoil 20-50 motorcycle oil.

    Wow! Never in million years would I have guessed I would be reading "another thread on oil" in a gun forum. Lol it's almost like being back on my favorite bike forum :0)
