View Full Version : Lucas Gun Oil

Since there isn't a specific maintenance area, I'll ask here since I have more centerfire rifles than anything else. :D

I buddy of mine is a diesel yacht mechanic. He is a retailer of Lucas Oil products. His rep gave him a few bottles of their "Gun Oil". I had never heard of it before. I do however, know of Lucas Oil's reputation for motor oil, additives, lubricants, etc.

My firend gave me a 2oz (I think) bottle. Does anyone have any experience with it? It seems a bit more viscous than Hoppe's or FrogLube. I am going to try it, but I was curious if anyone has any experience with it as a lubricant or protectant. How easy is it to clean since it seems to be thicker than others I have used? etc.

Thanks

take a picture of the bottle!
As a fellow motorsports enthusiast, I would try some!

Found this picture on the interwebz. Not my photo, but the bottle is the same.

That stuff SUCKS

it comes out all gummy, it burns up quick in my AR and all it does it gum up my 1911.
don't waste your time. I am a huge fan of Lucas products and that is why I tried this stuff out when i saw it at an auto parts store... I regret paying the $3 for it

not to hijack the thread, but is using motor oil good for ARs?

How about Seafoam? That stuff can cure cancer, if you believe what the fans say....Mobil 1 is what I see a lot of people using.

That's what I was worried about since it seems so thick to begin with. There might be different results based on the weapon, rate of fire (heat) and environment, but we'll see. I'm gonna shoot the AR and the M&P 45 with this oil today or Sunday at the latest. I'll let you know how it turns out for me.

break free CLP is great, will always get the job done. since I work in a garage I do try different things. I have real good luck with Redline assembly lube on the major friction components then a spray down with CLP. a coworker commented on how smooth the actions are on my AR's. This is a my go-to setup.

I am going to experiment with Wurth HHS-K (formed hhs2000) its a delay viscosity fluid grease, since its an aerosol can (faster, avoids me having to dip my finger in lube)
also Wurth's lock lubricate is adverstised as a gun oil on the can, might try that in combination.
I like to have grease and oil both in all my guns.
Have used Ballistol, that works great as an oil as well.
Have mixed assembly lube and oil (clp, ballistol, etc.) into those small military oil bottles that fit into you gunstock for backup/shtf oil and that combo seems to work great (shake it up and they dissolve into each other.)

I think the gist of my post is to show PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING WORKS!

I use it exclusvily as a cleaner, there is too much solvent mixed in with the oil to be used as gun oil alone, IMO. check back on a gun you oiled down (especially an AR) in a week and tell me if there is any oil left on it. in my experience you will find the gun is dry (although it still has corrosion protection)
rem oils big thing is 'teflon', which is a dry lube, and probably just fine for bolt guns, but not enough for semi auto's, IMO.

since i clean and especially lube the piss out of all my guns, its not much concern to me, but sprinco.com's Machine Gun Lube seems to work great and really stay on stuff for a long time, for those guys that run select fire guns and shoot them alot in a combat zone.

I really like FP-10...i have heard from a few people it is supposed to be better than most, but I honestly keep my guns so clean and oiled that I rarely have issues with lubrication

I also like frog lube a lot, but I think that is for the minty freshness :)

Everyone has their own idea of what works - it's usually just what people have had the chance to use and like with limited experience.

I use gunslick because it came in a very nice cleaning hit I bought - and I continually refill it because I know that it works well.
I have used everything from frog lube to moly grease. it all works and they each have their ups and downs.

I made a batch of EDS RED and WOW I am impressed. Yeah I paid about $30 but I got a gallon of the stuff and I aint afraid to use it. It REALLY cleaned up my deagle and it seems to want to leave a film of oil on top so you really have to wipe it off. It works better than that stupid TETRA gun crap... I just need to find a squirt bottle instead of a wine bottle to keep it in for using.

The armorer for San Berdoo Co. Sheriffs was talking about this stuff today. He says its very good stuff. Apparently it was formulated by Lucas for the Mah Deuce....

You are correct, remoil completely evaporates. It works but looking for a replacement that's also and aerosol.
I really love PB Blaster for around my garage and just noticed it says "guns" on it. I'm gonna give it a shot next range day and see how it does.
