About Us

Bob Who?

In the world of 1911 handguns there are several names that rise to the top as the best of the best, but there is no name more highly acclaimed than Bob Marvel. Bob has been an innovator and builder of 1911s for decades. His guns are accurate, but just as important, they are reliable.

Frequently asked questions:

1) It is so thin, won't it just run off?


No - 

 BMCO  has the viscosity of water because It contains no solids like Teflon, graphite, moly, waxes, paraffins, or plastics so it can’t build up and it can’t get tacky. It doesn’t even feel oily. For this reason, some people think that it can’t possibly work because it doesn’t have boundary lubrication or film strength to reduce friction. BMCO is not really a lubricant, it is a metal treatment.



2) Does it get thick or gummy when it gets cold?


No -    

· BMCO does not care about temperature. Because of its low viscosity and total lack of solids, it functions as well at -50F as it does at +100F. The viscosity does not change so the first shot is not a problem.


3) What about cleaning my guns?


  · Probably the single, most important feature of BMCO is that it reduces carbon buildup by about 80%. When you talk about AR platforms, either direct impingement or piston, carbon buildup is an important factor. BMCO will dramatically reduce the buildup and make cleanup much easier.  When you talk about .22’s, shotguns or 50 calibre we’ve got you. These are the dirtiest rounds on the market. As long as there isn’t a mechanical problem, you should be able to run any brand of .22 ammunition through a conversion without a malfunction.  The carrier for BMCO is mineral spirits. This is why BMCO will clean the gun as well as any cleaner.

What is Bob Marvel's Custom Oil?

  

The world doesn’t need another gun lubricant!


Fact is – If Bob Marvel’s Custom Oil (BMCO} wasn’t the best high performance gun lube on the market, Bob wouldn’t have his name on it. Whether you’re talking tactical full-auto, .22 conversions, suppressors or personal defense, 


Bob Marvel’s Custom Oil is the clear choice. – Here’s why


  1. Low viscosity – it capillaries and gets to where it needs to go - doesn’t attract dirt; better than synthetics
  2. No solids – like Teflon, moly or graphite to build up or get tacky – less cleaning
  3. Metal Treatment – creates sacrificial surface and dramatically reduces friction; acts like a dry lube.
  4. Reduces carbon buildup by about 80% - NO BULL! Imagine on AR’s, .22’s and suppressors!
  5. BMCO loves -50⁰F – no increase in viscosity or friction


All of that and more!

  1. Repels moisture
  2. Great corrosion inhibitors
  3. Safe on Polymers
  4. Eliminates “crust ring” in muzzleloaders

If BMCO does all that and, in addition, will clean your gun as well as most cleaners, maybe it is time to consider a change. 


Stay Tuned!

We should be shipping by the end of September.

What do the experts have to say?

  

I received the sample of your oil this week,  and would like to share with you what I have experienced. I have been working on a 1928  a22 sub machine gun, these firearms are very ammo sensitive and are prone to fouling very
quickly. I had been unsuccessful in being able  to cycle more than just a few rounds at a time.

  So just for kicks I cleaned the weapon with  your sample oil, and much to my amazement I was able to fire well over 500 rounds of various  22Ir. ammo without a malfunction. This amazed

me, especially when I disassembled this gun it  remained remarkably clean. Since then I have used your oil on several other guns with great  success.

It is a metal treatment.

  

· It does not care about time. Putting it on the mechanism and letting it sit for some period of time is no better than putting it on and shooting 3 seconds later. It only cares about friction. When it is between two metal surfaces, ferrous or non-ferrous, and it sees friction, it creates a sacrificial surface that acts like a coating. This sacrificial surface reduces friction, metal to metal, better than other lubricants on the market. It is sacrificial so it will wear off. The question is “How often do I have to re-apply to maintain this surface?” This is where the user becomes the expert. Every application is different. But each time you re-apply and create friction, you repair the sacrificial surface and you start the clock all over again. In most cases, the effect will last much longer than expected.
