I just got an M1 S90 Tactical, used but in excellent condition. I put about 100 rounds through it and thought it was time to take it down to clean and lube. It was a little tricky but after reading some posts here it went fine. I could not believe how simple it was. After a good cleaning with Hoppe's and some dry time, I used just regular synthetic oil. Rem Oil would be just great in my opinion. I use Mobil 1 synthetic engine oil, have for years on almost anything with excellent results. Anybody else out there have any opinions?

A lot of us duck hunters haven't had good luck with rem oil on Benellis.

 

FP-10

Miltec-1

 

I usually put a LIGHT coat of oil all over the inside and on the bolt and I put a dab of gun grease along the rail slide.

does anyone use CLP to oil a benelli?

 

I know it says you can... but a product that cleans AND lubes always sounds like its trying to do to much at the same time. Always sounds too good to be true.

Drundel,

 

What type of problem(s) have you guys had with Rem Oil? I have used it quite a bit on all kinds of things with very good results.

CLP is great stuff. I've used it on my Nova and M1 and never had a problem.

 

Both have seen extensive use on the range and been carried on duty.

Jon,

 

I personally use CLPs, whether they be Breakfree, Firepower FP-10 or Slip2000. ALL have done the job for my Benellis within thousands of trouble free rounds.

 

My lubrication regiment for my m1s90 and Nova is as follows:

 

- * Bolt body's cylinder (the portion that goes into the Bolt carrier) receives a healthy dose of lubricant. The healthy does ensures that the inertia spring receives lubricant as well.

 

The locking lugs also receive a very light coat of oil.

 

- * Bolt Cam Pin receives a healthy dose of lubricant.

 

- * I dab the bolt link pin with oil and allow it to seep into the nooks and crannies.

 

- The bolt carrier's body receives dabs of lubricant on the rails.

 

- I make sure to place small dabs of lubricant on all of the trigger assembly pins. No need to overdo, a dab each is all that I use.

 

 

* Adjust as needed for the Nova since it doesn't have an inertia spring, bolt link, etc..

 

Your mileage may vary, but my Benellis have lasted thousands of rounds with nary a hiccup. One of them has seen hard-use during a training course and ran like clockwork. Then again, that doesn't surprise me because all of the other semis (which so happened to be M1s90s) ran without a hitch, including the instructor's two personal M1s90s.

 

The guns run, and even my mine can run with 7/8 oz loads.

 

-Jim

Well I put around 75 rounds through my M1 on Saturday and was extremely pleased with it. My buddy wants one in the worst kind of way. I found some value Winchester 3 dr. shells I will start using for practice. I also used some real powerful Remington #4 Heavy shot a guy brought down and no one liked it because it kicked too hard. You know, it hurts so good. Then I tested my S & B 00 12 pellet tac load and it worked flawlessly! I had a problem with it the last time I shot and I had hoped that it was just a dirty gun, and it was. I have not taken the recoil spring out yet, but I will on the next cleaning. This is a great forum; I look forward to learning from some of you guys.

Feed it a lot more buck that you plan on using for self defense. Just because it ate a couple doesn't mean I'd trust it 100% yet.

I'd put a 100 rounds of it through it just to be sure. Use the same type you intend to carry for SD.

It caused many stove pipes.
