You folks over there sometimes really surprise me and why is that you may ask!!! Answer that resident of the USA Mr Ed Harris!!! He came up with the formula for one of the lowest priced and finest gun bore cleaners preservatives and lubricants Eds Red. The great thing about Eds Red you can adjust the mixtures constituents to your own needs and the cost to mix it up is absolutely rock bottom.
Dont knock it without trying it I was extremely sceptical at first but I now use Eds Red all the time.

After seeing this test several years ago, switched to Frog Lube. And yes, because I am a little kid at heart, I ate some. Just because you can! LOL

This topic comes up frequently on all types of shooting bulletin boards. Given the large numbers of "correct" answers it seems that consistent application of almost any product will provide lubrication and corrosion protection. I have switched to Eezox in the last year due to its corrosion protection and its ability to not collect dust and dirt. Frog Lube appears to be just as good, if not better. I, too, cringed at the price of Eezox and the fact that I had to ship it in, but even if I spent $50 a year on it, and it is a lot cheaper than rusty chambers or rebluing barrels. I bought a small bottle with a needle applicator and a larger bottle to refill the little one. Cheap protection as far as I'm concerned.

I suspect that this actually very true!

I switched to Ezzox several years back. Did not like the smell at first, but that changed and it is sweet to me now.

I buy it in gallon cans and decant into a sprayer. Note I have had it melt through a plastic sprayer once (a CLP spray bottle refilled with Ezzox) left on a work bench for a year so I recommend a metal oil sprayer.

I use Hoppes as a barrel solvent, because I still have not gotten around to creating Red transmission fluid- oil mix yet, but have no doubt I will one day

This has to be THE most overthought topic on gun and motorcycle boards. I used WD-40 for about 25 years before I understood that while it is a great protectant, it is not a great lubricant. Since then I have used RemOil, or whatever else -Breakfree CLP, 3in1 Oil, Browning Gun Oil, or whatever someone else had handy when I was away from home. None of my guns have any rust or excess wear. The point is, use something, and keep them clean and dry - or dry thoroughly ASAP after a swim. If you are going into cold conditions, make sure the lube is good for that. I can vouch for RemOil down to minus 11 F, but since I am no longer good for that myself it's kind of a moot point now.

inside cleansoil. Outside RIG. Lately RemOil has been smelling like it's cat piss.

I totally agree with Virginian--just about anything slick works fine. My goodness, whatever happened to Vaseline? I know some English smiths who still use it today as their preferred lube. What is of far more importance is keeping the guns clean. And excess lube's only function is to allow grit to gather into a grinding compound.
