I have heard of alot of guys using Mobile 1 synthetic in their 1911's. If any of you guys do this, what is the best weight?
Because a gun is a machine, just like an engine is a machine. I don't use motor oil at present but paying $10 for a 10cc syringe of bearing grease that some custom gun manufacturer puts his label on doesn't make much sense.This is something that I have never understood; why use car oil on a gun? People usually claim price. Unless you guys are giving your guns daily oil baths, it just doesn't make sense to me. I'm still using the same grease syringe and handfull of oil bottles that I bought yrs ago, and that is with 100+ guns in the collection. To each his own.
