CorrosionX, Eezox and Mil-comm have proven to be better rust preventatives in amateur tests.

What wear did you notice?




Good Luck And Be Safe!!!

Regardless, it will work, and thats what i was saying.

I found TONS of wear on my charging handle and ALL contact points on the bolt carrier group. couldn't put my old oil on fast enough.

[QUOTE=szhttm;3403262]What wear did you notice?

Just finish wear on the top side of the barrel and locking block. Nothing serious but it was noticeable. Same thing was happening when I lubed with Hoppes oil. That's why I gave the FL a try. Since I started leaving a light coat of FL on everything I haven't noticed much/any additional wear. There are probably other products that are as good or better out there but, I like being able to clean/lube with one product that works well, isn't toxic,isn't messy, and smells good. I'm sticking with the FL.

is there any lube that will 100% without fail prevent wear marks?

I keep my stuff clean and lubed with grease and they all show wear. I recently switched from red high temp firearm lube to the all purpose moly grease that I have not actually tried yet. the red grease is the only thing I ever lubed with and my .40 shows slight wear on the barrel and locking block. that's after 600/700 (?) rounds.

my AK bolt has been greased and at around 1000 rounds, it shows wear.

the grease is still there when I clean it so its not like it heats up and leaves. I just don't know if it can be avoided.

Nope - simply not going to happen. The action is so fast and furious that no amount of barrier grease/oil is going to prevent metal to metal contact, aka Barrel and Slide. It will however stop wearing (or should) after the friction points have come to a point where the metal is no longer impacted.

You could put thousands of rounds through it, then have it refinished! Then maybe the rounds would wear the parts enough where the contact points are less?

If there is ever a barrier protectant enough to prevent wear, it would sell like hot cakes!

Same thing happened to me, but I apply with a Q-tip some FL on areas of movement, also with liquid FL I apply a very light coat to areas were there is a lot of build up of soot. That wat it just wipes off easier after a range visit.

If you like FrogLube you will like Silver Bullet Gun Oil. You can find it at silverbulletgunoil.net (sorry they won't let me post a link) I know it looks like bull crap but the stuff work better than anything I've tryed. If you clean with froglube and lube high wear area's with silver bullet gun oil or (SBGO) it's even better.

OK, I see someone new with their first post as an advertisement and I get skeptical. Did a little Google action and found this:

Silver Bullet Gun Oil test.. - TheFirearmsForum.Com

Might be worth a look

I'll start a new thread but here is the link: http://goo.gl/qHoOz

sorry, didn't mean to sound like a commercial. a friend turned me on to it and it's the only oil I've seen that doesn't disappear over time. hope it helps someone.
