Here's a recipe for homemade gun lube. The good part about making this stuff yourself is that you can alter the viscosity by manipulating the ratios of ingredients to suit your own taste/preference. Use a quart container, like an empty oils jug, as a receptacle/storage container and only make a half quart or so until you get the consistency you like. Obviously if you want it thicker, add more of the thick stuff. If you want it thinner, use less of the thick stuff, or add more thin stuff. The key is using the same measuring device for all ingredients so you can reproduce your results, and don't forget to write down your ratios. Play with it and see what works best for your needs.
The ingredients are:
- 2 parts - Good quality motor oil (multi weight)
- 2 parts - Good quality ATF
- 3 parts - Lucas heavy duty oil stabilizer (sort of like STP and you don't need a gallon but it is good for your car too!)
- 2 parts - Hoppe's #9
- 1 part - Marvel Mystery Oil
Throw it together, mix it up and put it in a dispenser and you're ready to go.
