    whats your "lube" :)

    Just thought it be inreresting to see what kinda oil you guys are using and the merits of each...

    I use kleenbore oil cos its supposed to clean and protect but really I got givin a heap of cleaning kits with bits missing years ago so scored a heap of bottles.... But im almoat run out and it like hmmmm what to buy lol..

    I also have a bottle of rem oil with teflon I use for triggers and bolts as its quite thin so penetrate well and doesnt seem to gum up.. I akso got it in my brain the teflon would be real slippery... But dont put it in a barrel it causes terrible accuracy for 4~5 shots...

    Break free clp with PTFE on and in everything. Doesnt seem to affect first shot much if at all but i put one tight dry patch down before using. Also seems to have mild copper removing effect.

    Been using "EWL -Extreme Weapons Lubricant" from Slip 2000 for 2 years now:
    Slip 2000 - EWL

    Have been using it in rifle actions/triggers/barrels and semi-auto 12 guage action/gas rings etc.
    Has been working well for me.

    Found it leaves a really fine film that makes em run slick. And best of all (for me) doesn't attract/bind as much dust/carbon/shit as other lubes I've tried.

    -Have been seeing how long it keeps my Xtrema2 running well, so have put 300 rounds through it without cleaning or applying more lube. Hasn't missed a beat, and still smooth......
    ....Thought that was pretty good.....until I read this:
    S.W.A.T. MAGAZINE FILTHY 14 : Slip 2000 Official Blog

    ..Cleaned once, at 26,000 rounds- shit, that will take me a few duck seasons

    Dont use much of anything, bit of moly grease on bolt -lugs and cocking, bit of kroil for a cleaned barrel and a wipe over.
    Cant beat the old stephen yougs .303 oil for smell, always kicks the memory into gear.
    Some people are like slinkys,basicly useless but they make you smile when you push them down the stairs

    Stop sticking things where they dont belong and it wont be so complicated!

    I have used kroil for ages, its a good penetrant. Never had anything rust since using it so have stuck with it. One patch with kroil and a couple follow up patches and my barrels look like new. Seems to work well with HBN or Moly.
