    I don't know what brand this is or where it came from, but I want some more of it.
    It was swag in a parts order from somewhere. I set it aside and didn't think about it again until this week when I tried it out on a rifle. I've looked through all the recent websites I've ordered from and can't find it.

    It's not Lucas. It's a darker blue, close to purple. I remember there was a tag with it that said something like it was a free sample of "such and such brand", but I threw away the tag like an idiot.

    I'm trying to come up with all the places I've ordered parts from in the last couple months. ArmOrAlly, RTB, Shuyler, Damage Industries. Can't find it on any of their sites.

    Royal Purple dipped their toes for a brief time in the gun oil business. It has since been discontinued.

    I've been using Mobile 1, I collect the remaining oil in the bottles after my oil changes.

    I use VP racing oil for 2 strokes that I bought a crap-ton of at Walmart on clearance years ago. It's also the same thin bluish-purple oil that MP Molds sends with their works of art/molds.
