so i just picked up some .243 finally, local shop had been out then i got there just in time to pick up the last box of S&B
anyways, when i was looking at my bolt trying to figure out how in the world it makes its magic happen, i noticed some light rust. nothing serious as the gun is a few weeks old. so i jumped on the interwebs, did some light reading, then figured some 3 in 1 oil would do for now. just for preventative measures.
so question is, what oil? i asked dr.google and found a few options. outers, remoil, birchwood casey, hoppes, and wilson combat...but then i came across an interesting bit. somebody suggested using vehicle 10w-30 full synthetic like mobil-1 or the likes...while i can see the resemblance. can anybody back this up? i can get oil relatively cheap...but i dont know about that. it seems sketchy to my amateur eye

I've been using this since the '70s. It's never let me down:

Mobil 1, STP oil treatment (not oil), Singer Machine Oil...depends on the application.

I have used all of these, and they all work just fine.

Lots of guys use Mobil 1 on guns. Works great. I use it on the truck and then drain all the extra drops in the bottles into one bottle for use on the guns. I also use RemOil, CLP, Frog Lube, etc. Whatever is handy when cleaning/lubing.
