We Have Oil You Need!
Modern firearms, using the latest in materials technology, tend to require less maintenance than they did in years past. That’s not to say, however, that proper cleaning and lubrication is not necessary. There are several good products on the market, at a variety of price points. Let’s take a look at three:
First up, the classic: Remington RemOil
This is an excellent lubricant for the outdoors shooter, hunter, or sportsman. RemOil has a wide range of effective temperatures, and is just as good at 20 below zero as it is at 165 above. A blend of lubricating oils and synthetics, RemOil comes in a spray bottle, or in the popular wipe form. This gives the user the choice of spray for internal parts, and wipes for quick maintenance after being in the field. 6 fluid ounces for $6.99
Next, Breakthrough “Battle Born” High Purity Oil
With a temperature range of up to 417 degrees fahrenheit, this oil is an excellent choice for shooting on the planet Mercury. All kidding aside, it is an excellent product for hot weather, or hot firearm, application. Battle Born is a 100 percent synthetic lubricant, and is non-flammable and biodegradable. It comes with a precision application nozzle. 2 fluid ounces, for $8.99
Third, AmsOil Synthetic Firearm Lubricant
This lubricant is formulated for firearms by the folks at AmsOil, who have been recently introducing their specialized products into the retail marketplace. This is a general application firearm oil, meaning it can be used on internal moving parts, as well as a layer applied to the outside to discourage surface corrosion. This is a 100% synthetic oil, and comes with a flip-top dispenser lid. 4 fluid ounces, for $9.99
That’s a quick round-up of some of the firearm lubricants we have at Cape Gun Works. Need something in particular? Stop by and take a look. Our cleaning department has anything a shooter needs to keep a gun in top operating condition.
