I have been making and using my own mixture for 30+ years, about $15 a gallon and works better than any thing I have ever purchased. ATF, Kerosene and if you need it thinner for spraying as in coating entire guns for long term storage I use a bit of acetone in the mix. I now use synthetic ATF but the results are the same. never gets sticky, thin and light, prevents rust and is made for high pressure and high heat applications. and it will keep the gun cleaner. ATF will clean the old grease and oil out of a gun.

Some add 30W motor oil to this for their AR's to make it a little thicker.

I also use Ed's Red per the above recipe but to clean only. I have went back to Hoppe's Gun Oil, it's what my Father used. I did this after having a problem with my Autos cycling in 4-10F weather. No problems with the Hoppes. Mossberg told me to quit using Rem Oil on my 935. I then went to FP-10 and then back to what I started with in the '40's, Hoppes. Ned S
