Remington Rem Oil Benefits

  • Excellent Friction Coefficient – according to an extensive friction coefficient test where 46 CLP’s/Gun Oils were tested for lubrication and corrosion resistance properties
  • Dry to the touch – most lubricants are wet. Debris does not stick to Rem Oil
  • Corrosion Protection – passes salt spray test as per Gov’t requirements
  • Cleaner – helps remove powder carbon and fouling
  • Low Viscosity – soaks into small areas and metal pores
  • Very inexpensive
  • A little goes a long way

I would have to say that Rem Oil is a very good lubricant based on the various tests I have put it through. Just sliding a metal block across a metal bar with it applied made a significant improvement in ease of movement. It was much more slippery than some other well known gun oils and of course compared to bare metal.

Rem Oil is a good oil for firearm lubrication and corrosion resistance. It’s almost a CLP according to Remington. It will clean dirt and grime from metal surfaces. I will be buying some to test shortly though. Let’s see if it will clean my Glock 22 barrel after 50 rounds. Stay tuned!

I used Rem Oil on my Glock 22 and Glock 21 over the weekend before heading off to the gun range. It’s very thin…like water. It quickly soaks into a patch and is colorless so it’s hard to tell how much is on the patch. Anyway, I lubricated both Glocks with it before shooting.

After you apply it to a metal surface it dries to a super slick dry film. I would expect this dry film to repel dirt, fouling, debris, etc. really well. Both Glocks functioned flawlessly at the range with Rem Oil. I like the fact that my Glocks are now dry to the touch.

Rem Oil contains an exclusive Teflon formula that provides a super thin film that decreases friction and provides a barrier against corrosion. Nothing sticks to Teflon….just look at a T-Fal frying pan.

Rem oil has been around at least 50 years and is still around with all the competition. Rem oil comes in a 1 ounce squeeze bottle, an aerosol can and wipes. It is super cheap too. The 1 oz bottle is about $5.
