    I use RemOil on my Glock but it seems to evaporate from inside the gun within a few days. Is the oil supposed to evaporate and leave a film of Teflon on the surface?

    Save the Remoil for door hinges. You can either search for "lube" or
    use some of the most common.
    I use Weaponshield CLP for cleaning. I use Militech 1 for a lubricating oil.
    Many like Breakfree CLP, many use Mobil 1 engine oil with great results.

    Remoil is some crap. I used Breakfree CLP for cleaning and Miltec for lube. No problems!

    I use Remoil for cleaning and a few drops of Mobil 1 for lube.

    Remoil is a CLP, so it's basically the same crap as Breakfree.

    CLP means clean, lubricate, and protect so they ALL have petroleum distillates in them to clean, so over time they ALL mostly evaporate...

    As long as you give your Glock 3-4 drops once a month of the Remoil (or any other CLP including Breakfree) it'll keep your gun running just fine.

    You could try some "lube-only" products like TW25 or Tetra if you want, and just use the Remoil for cleaning and for hard to get spots, but really, a $1.50 little bottle of Remoil lasts about 6 months to a year with a Glock when using it in all three processes to clean, lube, and protect. YMMV.

    More than good enough for a Glock.

    Toss the Remoil in the trash and get some Shooters Choice FP-10.

    Mobil 1 being used is VERY popular. Engine oil was used in WWII,
    worked well for them.

    I posted a question about the "cleaning" part of REMOIL (or any other CLP). Aside from the barrel, where and how do you use a CLP product (remoil or other) for the "C" part of the CLP.

    I know I'm a newb, but since CLP's also "lube" it seems that you wouldn't want to use it to clean the frame, etc. because it would leave a residue attracing film where you don't want it.:dunno:

    To me, it seems that you need a fast drying solvent like alcohol or dare i say NC brake cleaner to "clean" the gun (receiver and all) and then use the CLP or simply lube products to do just that--lube...:dunno:

    +1!... You just can't beat it IMO... I'm still on the same quart going on near 3yrs now... Use it to lube all my guns from AK to Glock and have never had a problem.

    I use CLP for cleaning and LP for lube. It is what I run on my Ar's too. Never a problem been using this combo for over 20 years.

    Remoil is NOT a CLP and it is not much of a lube either being very outdated. CLPs do multiple things poorly. Breakfree CLP at least does a good job protecting against rust but it's not much of a lube or cleaner. Some people don't like to hear this because both products are cheap and thats what they want. Glocks withstand use of products like this better than most but that doesn't mean I'm going to use them.

    TW-25B is NOT lube only. It is quite a good protectant. This is well known. We used it extensively in the Marines to protect against salt water damage. Buckets full in fact.

    Mobil 1's only positive quality for weapons lubrication is that it is cheap. If cheap is your primary concern in weapons care then have at it.

    Our teams aside.
    I use CLP for cleaning and lube for barrel, and Shooters Choice for the rails.

    No, I would not consider this stuff in the same league as Breakfree CLP. I don't use CLP either, but have for years. I used RemOil a couple of times and found it to be much to light for any kind of serious lube. I will not use it on anything except a fishing reel and door hinges now. BTW, I use Mobil 1 and Dexron III ATF on all my weapons with great results.

    Elaborate how? That Mobil 1 is obviously designed for cars and not firearms? it's too thick, does not lube well, firearms operate mechanically different from car engines....etc.
