    Another corrosion test

    As has been my experience, Corrosion X works great

    Although the M-PRO7 results weren't as good as some others, I've been using it for about 5 years & never had any issue with rust on my guns.

    I did a "scientific" test last year where I put two steel washers outside, one with a lite film of M-PRO7 & one without. Both were thoroughly degreased beforehand. One without developed sever rust in about 3 weeks - The one with held up for about 5 months with only lite discolouring on the edges. Humidity inside our place ranges from 45-65% but outside however ranges around 60+% where we live. I was impressed with the results considering how long I left the washer outside continuously in all weather conditions.

    Your cleaned washers actually started out with an advantage- they didn't have sweaty fingerprints or powder residue on them. Fingerprints have salt and powder residue is somewhat hydroscopic (attracts moisture).

    That's right, advantage was intentional.

    On a similar test ,wd40 came first. I like crc long life . M pro7 gave me poor results and rust surface started to develop of some of my guns. . CRC lanacote is pretty good as well.

    Lanacote is good. Makes a sort of wax that water beads off.

    One big problem with tests like this is that they don't prep their steel samples properly.
    The washers and the angle iron used in the tests are from hot rolled steel, which has a heavy but inconsistent layer of mill scale on it, with is actually quite corrosion resistant in its own right. To get a real comparison, they should be using polished steel samples.

    Eezox.

    Did I mention Eezox? Go get some and figure out how to use it (it needs to dry on).
    Kept all my guns rust free when they were stored for multiple years.

    I use Kroil. Marine industry corrosion protection and has great rust penetrating properties.

    More than one way to skin a cat.

    I use CRC Long Life for general use and grease all over and in the bore if I’m storing for long periods. I use a very light covering of grease on the lug and underside of the actions in the (composite) stocks too. Works for me.
