M16 oiler
 
Iím sorry if this is the wrong section to post. Wasnít sure where to ask this.
I remember seeing a Oiler for a M16 that was a older/vintage piece at a gunshow. I remember it being a hand pump oil with a long thin needle on it. Apparently it came with a form of grafite for the M16s. Iím not sure if it was USGI or a commercial version.
Does anyone know what Iím talking about or am I horrible at descriptions. I would love to have one, but before I start hunting for one, I gotta know what Iím looking for! Thanks

I was in the Army 1977-81. Then the National Guard until 83. Never saw anything like that. We started with LSA and ended with CLP.

The Oiler for an m16 was a small white plastic bottle you put LSA in. Just a squeezie bottle. Most grunts just carried the larger green LSA bottle.

The small bottles also came in OD green. Lots available on eBay.

Yep, that is definitely the case. There were also cream/tan colored large LSA bottles that contained a high viscocity version of LSA.

This may have been a civilian version. I do know it was a metal hand pump can with a long needle on it and had grafite in it

Sir:
I've never seen something like this for an M16/AR...............
Even in the civilian world, it's been some sort of liquid lubricant.
Best of luck!

Are you sure it isn't for an older weapon?

There was some sort of toothpaste tube of something.

You can see it in the m16 field expedients video.
