I've seen debates on other forums concerning whether traditional gun oils (like Remington) are better than related products that are paste-like (e.g. Gun Butter). One side believes that oils are better because they "flow," enabling the lubricant to get into hard-to-reach areas that need to be protected. They also believe that the thicker the lubricant, the more likely it is to gum-up and collect dirt and grime, which defeats the purpose of using it in the first place. The other side argues that the thicker the lubricant, the more likely it is to stay where you put it. What good is your oil if it leaks off the rails and machinery and gets into places where you DON'T need it (which will cause problems rather than remedy them)? They believe thicker products are easier to apply, keep in place, and remove. Not to mention they just do a better job because they're thicker and create more of a barrier between moving parts, which reduces friction and reduces wear. What is your opinion on this matter?
