    Eezox and 100% pure coconut oil as lubricant

    I live in the tropics, humid, salty and damp weather all around year...I mix Eezox and pure coconut oil, and use it to clean my handguns after a full day at range, the concoction produces a superb protective coating, no rust whatsoever, perfect lub, no gumming, or sticky residues at all...

    I treat my S&W's, Berettas, Sigs and now my Glock with that mix and all look as new. Powder and metal residues come out as magic...

    I stay away from anything lubrication wise, that is made from any type of plant oils or extracts. There is absolutely zero advantage to using them in place of petroleum products. This includes Frog Lube, Eezox, mineral oil, (Ballistol), and everything else. There are threads popping up on gun forums everywhere recently, about Frog Lube gumming up guns that have been stored for any length of time. This is because plant oils have a very limited shelf life. Like anything vegetable or plant related, they go bad and spoil over time.

    There was a lube out called "Fireclean" that was nothing more than Crisco Canola Oil in a 2 ounce bottle with a sky high price. It actually had a "use by" date on it. Another big problem with these plant based lubricants, is they can gum up very badly if they are mixed with ANY petro based oil. They require you to completely remove any and all petro based oils and or solvents before you use them. And once you do you can ONLY use them. That is too limiting. With petroleum based gun lubricants you can mix whatever you want without any negative reaction. When you take all of this into consideration, along with the fact they do nothing any better, I see absolutely no reason to mess with them.
    I don't need my AR-15 "Assault Rifle" any more than Rosa Parks needed to sit in the front of the bus.

    To better clarify why I stay away from these type of lubricants, I experienced a fellow shooter with a badly gummed up AR-15 at my local club range. It was last December, sunny, and about 50 degrees at the time. I had the place all to myself for about an hour, when this truck pulled up. A guy was there with his young son. After they got set up they uncased a Stag Arms AR-15. I saw him pulling hard on the charging handle, trying to get the bolt back. All to no avail. After a couple of minutes I walked over and asked if I could help. He asked if I knew what was wrong, and handed me the weapon. I could smell a slight trace of mint as I closely examined the gun. I asked when he last shot it, and he said it was in his safe since early last Summer. I then asked what he lubed it with, and he told me...... you guessed it, Frog Lube.

    I pulled on the charging handle VERY HARD, and the bolt didn't budge. He then tried to get it open with no luck. This went on for about 10 minutes, and they were just about ready to call it quits and head back home. Normally I don't like screwing around with other peoples guns, but this poor guy seemed at a loss. I told him I had a spare charging handle in my range cart, and I would be glad to let him use it if his broke, or got damaged trying to get it open. I had him hold the weapon firmly by the forend with the muzzle off to his side while pointing it downrange, while I held the butt with one hand, and yanked on the charging handle as hard as I possibly could with mechanics gloves on. Finally it opened.

    I cycled it a few times and pulled the rear takedown pin, and removed the bolt carrier and charging handle. I disassembled the firing pin retaining pin, pulled both the pin, bolt cam pin, and the bolt out of the gun. I had to push the cam pin out with the firing pin it was so gummed up. Everything I touched was a complete gooey, gummed up mess. Almost like it was coated with Molasses, only thicker, and just as brown. I had a big bottle of Hoppes #9 with me and some rags. And he spent the better part of 15 minutes trying to clean everything off as best he could. I had some Mobil 1 in a squeeze bottle, and I liberally soaked everything with it until the parts were literally dripping. We reassembled it, and it ran like a scalded dog. Both he and his son were very happy. Needless to say he told me he was done with that garbage. I was amazed how that junk locked up that gun.

    Yes. I've used both Mobil 1 oil and Mobil 1 Synthetic Grease on my firearms for years. I have recently switched to Weapon Shield Oil and Lithium Grease because I've found they stay put and last longer than the Mobil 1 products do. And because of that, they require less frequent applications. Especially in direct impingement AR-15's, which have a tendency to blow a lot of lube out the ejection port. As for any and all of these so called, "gun oils". I have never been able to determine what's in a, "gun oil" to make it specific to firearms, that is not contained in any other lubricating oil or grease. And I've looked hard.

    Thank you. I also do not know what makes "gun oil" gun oil. What would be your recommendation for Glock and HK lube? The same or something different? I have always just used Hoppies and if something is better,I will change.Thanks again.

    I use the same thing on all of my weapons. Weapon Shield Oil and Weapon Shield Lithium Grease. I still use Mobil 1 once and a while. As I said, I keep a squeeze bottle of it in my range cart. In the hotter weather out here in Arizona, I like the 20W-50 Mobil 1 because it has a thicker viscosity, and because of that it tends to stay put better on a warm rifle or handgun. On Glock's and H&K's, as well as most other Polymer guns, they just require a more modest application. AR-15's like a lot of lube.
