    Anyone tried the new HOPPES BLACK GUN OIL for modern sporting rifles ?

    if so does it "look like" Lucas's blue Extreme Duty syn. gun oil or look like any another brand?

    I have buddies who bought Hoppes black gun oil.Other than the pretty bottle,it ain’t any different than the reg Hoppes oil.I own the Lucas extreme duty oil.I like it.
    But,for AR’s,Break Free CLP is hard to beat.Been using it for years.

    I also use Break Free CLP. No need to change. I knew one person who used it and said it was fine.

    Saw "new hoppes black at the Academy yesterday and didn't want to spend 10 bux to find out, as just bought Luca's ED oil ...3 oz. for 20 bux. Felt like a drug deal almost...LOL...Lucas sure is "proud" of their gun oils...

    I'll soon be"testing" the Lucas Extreme Duty iI purchased . I got my Ruger railed and test fired 40 rds. without a hiccup, .....but it needs sighting in......then gave it a THOROUGH cleaning last night while burning the midnight (and morning) oil.

    If things go as planned I can have it sighted in by Saturday and properly sight it in.

    GI LSA works fine and it's cheap. My wife hates it when I use GI bore cleaner it stinks up the whole house. I've got a stash of quart cans of it that I bough cheap. I only use it on first step of cleaning really grungy guns, instead of using Hoppes. I don't fire anything so fast I need space age lubricants. For years my dad brought home a industrial solvent that he swore by for shotguns. He was cheap but his shotguns weren't and he would never use anything that would damage them. Sadly the solvent was taken off the market and was the only solvent I ever had that would wipe the residue from plastic wads out with one pass. Dad always had dibs on the empty IMR cans, his favorite containers to boost solvents and oils in.

    I always run the bolts on my .556 and .308 wet with Break Free CLP. Never any issues.

    I've been using the Lucas ED for a few years now and don't plan to change. Thats for things that need oil. Things that need grease I use either wheel bearing grease, RIG, synthetic Tetra lube, or TC bore butter, depending on what it is, intended use and ambient temp, or long term storage. I don't think I've ever tried CLP even though it's said to be good stuff.

    We are all fussy and picky about the oils and lubes we use in our weapons.But,in the end,any oil will protect your gun better than no oil at all.
    I remember my dad and uncle using general purpose oil,like 3 in 1 or something,for their hunting rifles,fishing reels and just about anything else.Their guns are still shooting like new!

    3 in1 will turn to gum over long period of time. I'm trying to 'discover" what type/brand of oil will stay in the BCG of the ar-15 the longest.

    Lucas red don;t last too long. Hoping the ED lucas lasts longer. I have a kinda old bottle of Kleenbore "Formula 3 Gun Conditioner." Label says "Lubricates,Cleans,prevent rust" Smells like hypoid oil to me. But it's too thin for hypoid. Might try it later just to see.
