I'm going to conduct a corrosion resistance test with some popular gun lubes.

I will also conduct a lubricity test if I can design a significant test.



I will go into details with the test later.

Right now I am gathering supplies for the corrosion resistance test.



I currently have:

Breakfree CLP

M-Pro7 CLP

Weapon Shield CLP



I understand the limitations of CLP. That is one reason I'm conducting these tests.

I don't want this thread to be a debate on gun lubes.

I do want suggestions for other lubes to test.

:idea:

I'll be interested to hear how they turn out. I worked for the original Break Free people back about 1980.

Jason,



The folks at Shooter's Solution will I am sure let you have a sample, if not I will try to find mine and I will let you have it.

For the lubricity test - 10-8 performance lube, and slide glide.

I have some Slide Glide

I have a sample of the 10-8 lube (if I can find it).

Nice. If you can't find it, let me know.

Is it an oil or a grease?

How about Militec-1. I used this while in Iraq and not once did I have a stoppage in my M16.

Yukon...



I work in an oil/petroleum testing lab... want me to do ACTUAL oil tests on them? I can actually get you industry standard viscosity and corrosion tests. PM me if you want to utilize that.



BTW, really cool idea, and I await the results with schoolgirl giddyness.

Dude ... remind me not to party with you.[/quote]



LOL




Or maybe you SHOULD party with me if that is the outcome




Problem corrected. I'm tired and I was helping dump a lot of stuff today, so the toluene probably got to me

YukonGlocker,



If you're only doing a corrosion test -- i.e., you're not doing a lubrication test --, I've always wondered how well those silicon impregnated gun socks actually work. Seems like everybody sells them now days for three or four bucks a piece, and everyone claims that storing a firearm in one will keep it corrosion free. Depending on exactly what your test is going to entail, maybe one part of it could be cleaning a gun with a scrubber of some type so it's completed oil free and then simply shoving it into one of these socks. Just a thought.

I wonder how well "Anal-Ease" would work?
:oops:



Now that I got that out of my system, I would second slide glide for a test! Please!
