I use Remoil on my 1100s ,11-87, and SP10 in all weather from 100 degree dove hunting to 10 degree goose hunting, Ive never had a issue with it BUT I don't pour it on. I put it on a rag and then wipe the surface down and for the inside mechanisms, I use a Qtip to apply a very light coating. Thin is the key

The only thing rem oil is good for is to keep in your bag/boat just in case. You can spray it in a slow moving gun and get it working good enough for a hunt most of the time, its saved a couple single-shot days for us.

I use hopps 9 gun/reel lube. Bought a bottle for probably $5 two years ago and cleaned many guns and fishing reels with it. $5 for 2 years is dirt freaking cheap and I have never had a problem with it.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

If you guys want to believe that what oil you use matters...fine. Buy the most expensive product you can possibly find. @ It HAS to be good if it's expensive.@

There is NO substitute for proper cleaning and maintenance. Am sick of hearing grown men boasting about how they haven't cleaned "Betsy" in three years.

Having said that, I tried hosing down my first semi-auto with different high-dollar sprays because it kept sticking...It had never been cleaned and had thousands of trap loads shot thru it. Apparently Beretta 390's are trap-guns and so far each one I buy has the same issues. People shoot them until it burps and instead of cleaning it or maintaining it they simply buy a new one. WOW! Talk about lazy and stupid.

The problem with that first 390 was that the recoil spring in the stock was FILTHY and CORRODED. No amount of spraying was going to fix that but I tried. Basically wasted a couple twenties to learn this.
PLZ, learn from my mistake!

Aunt Betty Ive found that the price and or brand of the oil doesn't matter its the thickness and how much you put on the gun that causes jamming issues. Also you are right about cleaning a firearm, good maintenance is a must in my opinion.

I use rem oil and never had problems. However, when I clean my shotgun, I will tear it all the way down and spray and wipe dry.I do this after every use. I never leave any visible residue...spray and wipe dry. The only time I'll leave excess oil is if it's during an off season or I don't think I'll be using it for a while. I have yet to see any excessive wear or malfunction from oiling/cleaning this way....maybe I've been doing it wrong, but works for me.

I cant believe you actually got to talk to someone at Mossberg! About 18 years ago I bought a brand new 835 ulti-mag and half the time it woud go "click" instead of "boom"! Right in the heat of MN waterfowl season! Tried like hell to get a hold of customer service and the dealer I bought it from wouldn't stand behind it either! I ended up eating the cost of that gun....trading it on an 870 3 incher, man was pissed!! I still get pissed about it to this day ha ha!! So every chance I get, I bash Mossberg!! All they had to do was answer the phone...maybe things have changed over there now?

I have a can of Rem Oil and also a can of CLP and I use both. I just grab which ever can is closer and convenient. Never had any problems but I use it sparingly. I also have some outters oil in a drop bottle that I use a drop on my shiny spots or high friction areas. Never had jambs, guns never felt sluggish or slow as some of you described in your posts. But I have to agree you have to oil sparingly and you should be fine. A lot of Law Enforcement Gun Ranges use CLP for their cleaning and Lubricant. So that has to say something about the product. Both will do the job.
Happy Shooting,

Did you actually expect Mossberg to recommend the use of Remington's oil? C'mon, man...


Mossberg rep on the phone: "You're looking for a good gun oil for your Mossberg, Mr. Swygard? Well, we highly recommend Remington products....and their gun oil is as fine as any lube you'll find. Anything else we can help you with, Mr. Swygard?"

:lol3:


If you have had problems with any gun oil (not talking about sewing machine oil, 3-IN-1 oil, motor oil, or water-displacer) in your autoloader, then you are an over-luber. :thumbsup:
The problem isn't the gun oil, the problem is the guy holding the can. :rolleyes:
