    I found this at a local shop going out of business, it's called birchwood casey renewalube oil. has anyone used it?, the price was too good to pass up but i know nothing about it. i normally use barricade or rem oil. thanks

    From a brief review of the product, it seems to be basically a variant just like FrogLube etc. that uses plant oils rather than mineral/synthetic oils as a base ingredient to lubricate-the mix is their secret sauce along with whatever else they put in it to make it appealing. Look up some of the threads regarding gun oils which abound on the THR for some real life experiences from THR posters and numerous links to good sources on this.

    Personally, I doubt it works any better than rem oil or barricade and it might just do a worse job for you than either of those products based on some reports of similar products.

    thanks, i got the 11oz can for just over $2, thought for the price it would be worth a try.

    If you do not mind, post your experience with it to help others as reviews of that particular product are scarce.

    so far i love it, a little goes a long ways. its much thicker than rem oil or barricade and so far i like it and it really improved the bolt on my marlin 60, its much smoother than before. here is a pic of a can like the one i bought.
