    That must be a woman thing. My wife can't stand the smell either. She quite happy when I clean my rifles at the range.

    I used Balistol for general cleaning, Cherry Balmz for lubricating friction points (especially on my ARs and AKs) and the occasional sonic cleaning.

    Sometimes I'll use a military grade a CLP.

    "Anarchy is not a solution, not a system, not a club, not a church, not even an ideology. It is the natural order of human life: Voluntary, consensual relationships among humans without the greatest problem in all of history- the hallucination, the dystopian ideal that some humans should have the right to violently control their fellow man."

    "Once you discover anarchism you cannot unsee the state for what it is: a fined tuned system of slavery.​"

    The OP said cheap. The very first gun oil ever is still just fine, olive oil. Step it up to a very high burn oil, avocado oil. Then the most used oil on the cheap is Mobil 1 synthetic.

    Do you guys know that in WWI when the Germans developed Ballistol that German soldiers would put Ballistol on their salads. The American Ballistol is not eatable. It's a slightly different formula.

    needless to say, we called it 4 in 1 oil after that...
    Only in America.

    He should have used Vegetable oil.

    I've used 3 in 1 oil my life on my guns. No issues so far.
