Hickock45 turned me on to using Ballistol. Love his videos.
Please keep us updated that sounds like a way for us shooters to enjoy our firearms without the chore of cleaning them after every use.
Well said. I use what works for me, and have never has a firearm fail from lubrication. I have many types of lub but have decided on break free and lucas.
I have been using hoppes gun oil with no problems so far. I think I might try Lucas because they seem like a good company that supports a lot of sports that I like.
I tried the lucas and so far it has done very well.
I’ve used the CLP, Balistol, and Lucas all in the past. They all seem to work well in the Sub2K. Occasionally when in the field I’ve used a good automotive engine pre lube. I usually apply it with a small piece of rag or a q tip. It seems to work very well.
BC10 GUNZILLA CLP" BIO based product.
I am using it exclusively now it’s replaced at least 10 other products in my cleaning Arsenal for me it does it all.
I have been using froglube for a while with pretty good results.
It might look a bit weird pulling out a hair dryer but it makes cleaning and applying pretty easy.
There have been so many types of lubricant listed on here I wouldn’t try to say ant one is better then the others. I would try different one and see what works the best for you. I am going to try a few new ones and see it they are better then my current ones (Lucas, CLP).
I have tried almost all different kinds in 30 years of shooting except frog lube. Don’t like the idea of having to spend that kind of time to lube.
Anyway I came back to tried and true ballostol. Smells like crap but does it all and it’s non solvent based. Been a around since Dirt was new .
If you have any old school shooters at the range see if they will let you try some.
I just use some old gun cleaner I’ve had for years
If it works then why mess with a good thing
That is true but but some day I feel like I could do better job
I just started using WD-40 dry lube for my magazines. Your never to old to learn something new.
LOL I went with Pennzoil
I have been using Hornady One Shot. It is a cleaner as well as a dry lube. The tests I researched shows it has the highest lubricity of all popular lubricants tested and #2-3 in corrosion protection. Being a dry lube it does not attract carbon or debris like most wet lubes will do. Also works at a wide range of temperatures. Spray it on, clean the weapon, then give it a light spray for lubrication, let it dry and your done. No excess oil to wipe down.
I use Ballistol. Great lubricant and cleaner in one. Have used this for years and it is a great product! I highly recommend it…also Hickok45 uses it so that is all I need to know.
I love Ballistol, but it’s been getting hard to find around here, even in dedicated gun stores. Wallyworld used to carry it, but not anymore. I have to order it on-line.
I get mine from Amazon for the most part. My gun store has it sometimes, but easier to get online with the 2 day free shipping.
Same here. Just hope it doesn’t become hard to find overall anywhere.
