Over something in excess of 60 years of shooting I have used just about every gun oil on the market at one time or another. I have also used knife honing oil, automotive oil, aircraft oil and plain old diesel oil (too smelly for use around civilized people.) I've used commercial gun oils (currently using Lucas or British issue oils) I've used motor oil when that was all that was available, I've used automatic transmission oil in a pinch as well as various military issue weapons oil.

The common thread here is they all worked... some evaporated faster than others... but as long as you kept the guns oiled, all was well... once the stuff evaporated the story changed.

At the moment I think I favor the Lucas product... though the smell is interesting... has the sweetish fragrance of commercial rest room cleaning materials!!! Still it beats the smell of some oils (probably re-purposed automotive oils.)

FWIW

I've been trying to figure out how to describe the smell of the Lucas and keep coming up short of a good description. You've described it perfectly. Some days I think the smell is OK, other days not so much. One thing for sure it is different and distinctive from any other gun oil I've smelled. I might add it has become my oil of choice.

I've made the same decision, Les.

What is the difference between Lucas Extreme Duty Gun Oil and just plain Lucas Gun Oil (the stuff which looks suspiciously like Marvel Mystery Oil?)

A lot, John. The Lucas Extreme Duty Gun Oil is a completely new formulation specifically intended to provide maximum protection in high heat applications without a great deal of migration. i.e. it's intended for machine guns. It's unusually thick and blue in color, with somewhat of a syrupy consistency. It is also slick as the devil. It's about the best sear lube I've ever used.

If so, get in on the Spike's Tactical label from Spikes. It's half of the Lucas marked product's price.

I was all set to purchase some of this Lucas oil from Spike's UNTIL I saw the shipping charges!!! The shipping was twice the price of the oil!! I believe that I will pass on Spike's.

Wow, that's new. It was pretty reasonable when I bought mine. I've recently read that some guys here and there have called the vendor and protested, whereupon they brought the shipping price down to something more reasonable. You might give that a try.

I will comparison shop for shipping charges when I'm buying an item everyone seems to have. Yesterday I bought a tuned buffer spring for an AR from Midway because their shipping was less than half of what Brownells wanted to ship it.

Anyway, sorry for the bad experience.

No problem. Some of these folks lower the price of an item, then makeup the difference in "handling and shipping". I have a problem with that approach. It was worth a look see, but will likely wait until I need 2-4 item from Brownells or Midway and then just include a small bottle of the oil to try out. I am one of those folks that watches shipping costs, and refuse to pay 2x the cost of an item in shipping......cheap/frugal.
