Gun Oil, Grease and Solvent Complete List

The purpose of this post is to clarify emergency gun lubricating if you did not have, or could not get gun care products. At the end of the list you will see emergency procedures for when you have nothing to work with.  
Good gun oils and cleaners should be bought and back-stocked and are as important as a supply of ammo. If national disarmament occurs, you will not be able to buy any of these products. As for quality, they are all good. Break-Free Gun Oil and gun care products in my opinion are a little better, as it is currently tested and used by the military. Other than that, the list is all high quality. Look for the lowest price and the highest quantity when you buy.

First and foremost, we still have the ability to buy good gun oils and gun solvents. This should be first choice. The information below should be considered only if there are no other products available in an emergency.  
Understanding moving parts on a gun is critical to understanding oil. A moving part like a bolt in an auto-loader-semiautomatic firearm is of dissimilar metal or hardness than the receiver. A good example is the pistons in your car motor. The piston itself is of a soft metal and the motor has a steel sleeve or the block is made of cast iron. If the block was of the same metal of the same hardness as the moving piston they would bind, even if lubricated.
How Parts Fit- Guns can be broken down into two groups when it comes to parts fit. (1) Military rifles and pistols, (2) sporting rifles and pistols: The military guns are sloppy in their fit and need to be because when men are mucking around in the mud the moving parts are given some play so the gun will function in the dirtiest conditions. So in no way should this be construed that the gun was poorly made they are tested by being exposed to mud and dirt. Then the gun is expected to fire.  The second type sporting rifles and pistols have a tighter fit and are known for more accurate shooting but do not do well when exposed to lots of dirt and mud.
Lubricants – First you need to understand the metal is not smooth, the imperfections in metal at the microscopic level are dramatic and there are grooves and fissures, canyons, and gullies unseen by the eye. The goal of a gun lubricant is to fill these imperfections on both surfaces and allow them to slide against each other dramatically reducing wear. Lubricants can have additives like Teflon such as in the product called Break-Free used by the military. Break-Free Teflon emulsion helps fill the microscopic grooves and make any firearm work better. This is called lubra-plate. The Teflon plates the two surfaces that rub each other. This is said not to be true of silicone spray of some other brands and some brands say do not use them on a gun as it gums them up.
For an emergency 3 in 1 oil is a fair lubricant for guns as well as automatic transmission oils and hydraulic oils which are all light ten weight oils. Some sewing machine oil thickens over time and in the absence of gun solvents might need to be cleaned up with a toothbrush and a couple of tablespoons of solvent of some kind like kerosene, lacquer thinner, enamel reducer, etc. and in the absence of any solvent in a war for example a couple of tablespoons of gasoline. All requiring use in a well ventilated area away from sparks and flames. Though good for other applications in a workshop WD40 should never be used on a gun especially shotguns. The gun will need to be taken apart and cleaned with a good gun solvent if available and then reassembled and lubricated with good gun oil. Brake parts cleaner is generally a good solvent except for the ones containing chlorine. The chlorine eats on the metal in the gun and so you should read the label before you buy certain brake parts cleaner.
Do not use heavier lubricants - - a Gear oil that is 90 weight or less is too thick. Motor oil like the variable weight motor oils start with a small number like  5-20, 10-20, 15-20, 10-30. or 20- 40 etc. as there a host of others that start out as a light weight oil but thicken to the second number which may make the gun not functional when the gun heats up.

If they pass laws against guns then you will either make your gun parts, bullets and supplies at home, salvage or do without. There is a gun and ammo supply system in a book AmericanHandbook on Guns Ammo and Freedom”. This is a Book on home gun construction and repair, powder, primers; and a brief history of how the USA has moved toward socialism and their written plans to overthrow our freedom and some solutions to save the Constitution.

  1. Thanks for the help. This will help me in my work. Those who want to carry guns must remember to have license before using or simply having them.
