    I just got off my favorite thread, "What is Your Favorite Lube?"

    Well , I've probably bought every snake oil out there and really don't remember one that did a bad job.

    So, instead of asking what lube you like best, tell me which ones suck in your opinion.

    Remoil Sucks It is good for rust prevention that's about it!!!!! Also fireclean if you let it sit to long as well it turns to a sticky like paste.. But If fresh its no issue..

    Ballistoil(?) I bought it and tried to use it, it stinks, doesn’t lube that well. I should have known when I read the label an it stated it could be used on wounds! It’ll never be in my garage again!

    Regular Hoppe's oil seems to dry out fairly quickly because it is so light

    I don't know what sucks. I did try Mobil 1, 0-20wt and it seems way to light, Breakfree is better. I've been using Tetra grease on pistol slides and hinge pins on my Citoris.. Use Breakfree CLP for the rest. I've been using this for the past several years, no problems so far. I will note that I clean my guns every 200 to 300 rounds so they don't get extremely dirty.

    So far this thread names a lot of the FAVORITES in the other thread. Interesting. Goes to show that opinions are like excuses and a$$holes...........

    I noticed that too . I started the thread out of a little sarcasm , but the stuff that is shown on both threads I can likely rule out, as I tend to agree with the ones that are on the suck list.

    The ones left over on the favorite list narrow it down considerably .

    So far my fave isn't on the suck list.

    I'll add Gunzilla is a crummy lube IMHO. ( yeah, yeah , yeah, I know, it's a "dry lube" - that's not what SHE said!. I don't buy into that concept. )
    But it's a decent cleaner

    That was funny. Lubricants, family law, and ex-wives have earned equality, only gun lubricants possessing utility.
