Gun Cleaner Test – Rem Oil

Rem Oil is a pretty good lubricant but can you use it to clean your gun?

Let’s see if Rem Oil can prevent and/or remove burnt on powder residue.

Here’s the test setup…metal base/bar and Rem Oil. I’ll apply the Rem oil to the metal surface and then add about 50 grains of smokeless powder and ignite it…Twice. Then I’ll see if the residue/fouling can be removed easily.

It wasn’t easy to wipe clean but it did come off fairly easily. So Rem Oil did stop the powder residue/fouling from bonding to the metal surface. It does make it easier to clean fouling.

Let’s add some Rem Oil on top and let it soak for 10 minutes and see what happens.

Not bad…Rem Oil is a pretty good product. It’s very slippery and does prevent fouling from adhering to metal surfaces. I wouldn’t call it a gun cleaner though. But I do like it!!
