View Full Version : RemOil and Teflon

10-30-2009, 11:17 PM
I was going to do a good cleaning on a couple handguns and rifles tomorrow.

I have always used Hoppes 9 and RemOil to take care of my cleaning and and protecting on my guns.

I had just ran out of RemOil and went to pick some up today. I noticed that the cans, maybe they always have, said that RemOil contains Teflon.

I thought I read someplace here that Teflon was not a great thing to use to lube the barrels of rifles. Leaves a film that is not good or something.

Could someone enlighten me about RemOil and Teflon, and if this is a good product to use or something to stay away from.

Thanks, Gary

Remoil is ok for guns on the outside. I only use gunoil in the bore.

It is Wunderbar for knives though.

Also works well to lube sliding doors and windows :)

I was wondering this as well.

I have used Mpro7 which contains teflon on just about anything on the gun including the barrel.

If teflon isnt a good idea in the barrel what would be used to remove the teflon buildup and what would be a a good barrel cleaner, looking to get something thats a all in one.

Rem oil doesn't get used on my guns anymore but it works great for my hairclippers.

I've heard on this forum that teflon will slightly clog\foul up the actual rifling in your barrel. I use hoppes 9 on my boresnake and rem oil\clp on the BCG and exterior surfaces. I don't know if hoppes removes teflon.
