I saw Hoppes and Breakfree in Wal-mart. and a new (to me) Rem Oil. Has anyone used it yet? It is very inexpensive so I am leery

I use it to wipe down tools, since it's sold at Lowe's and comes in a convenient pump spray bottle. I use it to wipe down guns, too, but I've found better products for lubricating guns.

I've used Rem Oil on the bluing to prevent rust ... seems to work fine. I use to use Birchwood Casey "Sheath" many years ago, which also worked well for blueing. Searching Amazon and the 'net, I don't see Sheath anywhere, so it might not even be made anymore. Update - more searching ... it looks like "Sheath" might now be called Birchwood Casey "Barricade". https://www.sportsmans.com/shooting...d-casey-sheath-rust-preventative/p/p2876

Rem oil is extremely light, I find it works fine but it seems to need refreshing a bit earlier than other lubes. I did see an interesting video in crazy low temps the Rem oil performed much better than some other favorites.
