    Re: gun grease

    In small quantities it an excellent lubricant for slides, and larger bearing surfaces where oil will evaporate with heat. It has a tenancy to collect crude though so use it where the burnt powder residue will be minimal.

    Re: gun grease

    When I was in the Marine Corps back in the 60's (yeah, I know it dates me), we used a light white grease called Lubriplate, applied very lightly. Seemed to work fine on the M-1 and M-14 (Boy, does that ever date me). Is that stuff still around? Guess if I had any sense I'd Google it and find out. Was wondering how it'd do in my PT 99.

    It really depend on the gun and to some extent the way you use it. I use gun grease on the slides rails of my guns, but in very light doses. I also use it in the carrier that rotates the barrel on my Stoeger Cougar. I like the white lithium grease best as it doesn't run in the heat and lubricates very well. I use synthetic gun oil for linkages and moving parts. And I use Rem Oil or something similar for wiping down barrels, lubing connector links, and coating steel parts to keep them from rusting.

    Re: gun grease

    i use slide glide "lite formula"
    can't say it's any slicker then gun oil. it does however stay put and wont push out as quick as oil will.

    it's pretty good stuff and a little goes a long way.
    i recommend you get the brush combo as a brush is really the best way to apply the stuff.

    it smells like road tar.
    If you can't shoot well, shoot often.

    Re: gun grease

    I've seen and used Lubriplate on the gears in printing presses up until I quit working on printing presses in 2001.

    I do use gun grease though. I've only been using it for the last three or four years. Before that, I used the typical gun oil for a couple decades. I like how the grease stays put and doesn't run onto a gun stock while a gun is stuck in a safe. Most importantly, gun grease keeps my guns functioning long past my ammo supply.

    Re: gun grease

    Lubriplate is good stuff but it may not be the best thing for guns.

    It is a great gear lube and is used a lot in aviation. I agree with
    Chicharrones about not using a grease on a gun. Of course just
    my opinion as some say its the best way to go. I clean and lube
    enough not to need a long term lube such as grease.

    Re: gun grease

    I heard somewhere that using grease on your slide slows it down a bit. of course I dont know this to be true or not as to I havent used it yet. anyone have an insight to that?
