    I wish I could remember the name of the company that furnished the Rem Oil to Remington. They were on the east coast.

    While I was at Kolar Arms (maybe give them a shout..ask for Bruce Gillette), we were getting a case of four gallons. The only difference between the actual Rem Oil and what we were buying is that it did not include the..1/10 of 1% teflon. The fella I spoke to said that any product containing teflon had a shelf-life of one month. After one month, what little teflon was in the product would settle to the bottom and stick to the can.

    Kolar's number is 262-554-0800 or 262-554-6900.

    I read somewhere that for teflon to be effective it needed to be applied under a lot of heat and as a solid coating, as an additive to oil it is supposedly marginaly effective at best. Having said that I do like and use Rem-oil myself.

    Before somebody gets mad and accuses me of being negative please know that while I cannot site the source for the article it was part of a written piece addressing the health risk of teflon cook ware a few years back and that over heating the pans caused the teflon coating to mix with food etc.

    Again I like and continue to use Rem-oil.

    That citation isn't hard to locate; it's been around the net in one form or another for years:

    For cleaning bores and for general lubrication, try using Marvel Mystery Oil. It's an excellent carbon solvent and has a tenacious affinity for steel.

    I won't hazard a guess because the finishes on our guns are the catalyzed type... nothing appears to attack them. We also take the precaution of putting finish on the raw wood inside the stocks when the guns are new to reduce oil absorption into the wood. We don't use oil for rust prevention either; we use either "Fluid Film", "Barricade" (Sheath) or "RIG". But we have seen no evidence of a reaction between MMO and the stocks.

    My Dad came home with a gallon of sewing machine oil one time and I think it only lasted us for thirty years of cleaning guns. Very high quality oil. Dan

    I use Ed's Red for cleaning and general use. You can mix your own.

    Called a couple oil dealers today, they are checking to see what they can find out. I've seen websites say molile 1 car oil, and also Royal Purple makes a gun oil spray, but haven't heard back from them if they have it in gallons. The marvel mystery oil has been doing great to clean the barrel bore.Unable to find any Remington oil in bottles at 3 walmarts, just spay cans.
    Plenty of rain here in eastern NC.
