Anyone using or used Boeshield T9 on XD/XDM or AR? I've used it extensively on mountain bikes and it works great. Looking for peoples experiences with it on firearms and how it might compare to a more traditional gun oil. Also, does anyone use moly grease or oil, particularly on triggger sears? Thanks.

Anyone have experience using Boeshield T9 lube on XD/XDM or AR's? How about moly grease/oil particularly on trigger sears? I've used T9 on mountain bikes with a lot of success but never on firearms. Thanks for any input.:D

Boeshield is fine, has gun lube right on the label. It's basically paraffin wax in a thinning carrier. Works great on cast iron tools too. Spray on thick and let set for long storage, or spray and wipe down for normal use. I normally like to use a thin grease over plain oil on ANY gun part that moves or slides over another surface. Doesn't run off as easily when the gun gets hot. I like Tetra gun grease. Although I have read somewhere that there are negs to using teflon in gun lube though.

Many synthetic (including motor) oils stick to metal amazingly well. I generally use synthetics for oil and a synthetic/moly blend for grease. I'd use T9 in a heartbeat for long term storage but would hesitate on something used a lot due to uber-thick consistency, but that's just IMHO.
