I read on another forum where someone with way to much time set up an experiment on a lathe to simulate wear of metal to metal. His conclusions were that Dri-Moly (molybdenum disulfide) was better than all gun oils and greases for protecting the metal.

I found some on the internet, couldn't find any locally, and applied it to all parts that slide or rub against each other. Stuff dries to a powder, so after it dried I still put a drop of Rem Oil(second best in his test) on the slide and barrel.

Was just wondering if anyone else used the stuff, by itself or in conjunction with gun oil or grease.

The fully synthetic 10W30 is good enough for me............I have a few pistols hard-chromed and a few titanium Nitride coated and the titanium nitride supposed to produce the less metal to metal wear followed by the hard chrome. Read the statistics on the titanium nirtide......it say something like you can rub the metal to metal for millions of time with no wear. I think the titanium nitride would beat the dri-moly and is cheap also if you want something with wear resistant properties. I have used the dri-moly and was not really impressed.

I may have to try that Dupont teflon multi use. Sounds good enough to give up the Viagra :D

I was always taught there are certain parts that require grease and some parts you oil. But then I put a light smear of oil around the outside of my barrels at the very end where it slides through the bushing or just slide.

I understand synthetics and how well they lubricate and even some molecularly bond with metals. BTW, the larger the grease or oil build-up WILL impede that bonding to a degree.

Its kind of like those old Slick 50 infomercials. Yes you can run your car without oil for X number of miles. BUT- the slick 50 is ADDED to your oil.

I would still use a light coating of grease where applicable. Even Wilson Combat advocates using grease if you watch their videos or talk to them. Too- how much of an ACTUAL expert or authority IS this person? And I was always taught "ONCE don't make it a habit".

If you cook with a teflon coated pan do you never use any type of grease or oil...only trust the coating on the pan?

Respects- Brizzo

I have been looking at the title of this thread for weeks and the thought keeps coming to me: What does Molly think?
