  • Gun lube

    Anyone used CRC Dry Glide on their handguns? I was reading the label the other day and it's PTFE (Teflon) based. Could be good for slide rails on autos. Any thoughts?

    Haven't tried it. I like prolix. Provides enough lube without stinking the house out. The wifey prefers the citrus smell of prolix over the usual solvents. Will the crc attract dirt and dust?

      It says not, on the tin. It says it will repell dust and dirt.

    Haven't tried that one but have been trying all sorts of products to find the *right* one. As of yesterday I'm a Froglube convert...all the way.

      Been a Froglube user since before it was sold commercially here in Aus. Can't go wrong with it.

      It even does everything it claims to, unlike most all other lubricants on the market.

          All of them.

          The paste is better than the runny stuff IMO.

          you may find this funny, but consider the ex military in me when I say, you can use almost any kind of oil in a pinch. You can use animal fat if you need to. I have never found the need to get that picky with my gun oil so long as it is oil. To choose I would probably go with something thinker than WD40. I do mean that. There is just not a lot to it really. Not to say that you fellas don't expect a lot more out of your gun lube than I do. I am sure some of the long term applications come into play if you don't shoot a gun for a long time (twice a year guns might justify the greater expense). I have never had this problem however.

          As I say however, you guys probably expect more out of your lube then I do.

              Ok, did some tests and didn't like it much. Frog lube and clp sound like the way to go. Years ago a gunsmith friend of mine used to make up a mix of clp and caliper compound. One is Teflon based and the other silicon. Worked a treat. I also see some good reviews on Slide Glide on YouTube . Thanks for the replies

                  Has anyone tried Inox MX5, the specs look good.

                i'm a frog lube guy now, I use the paste as it's easy to use and lasts for age's. I only clean my tanfog about once a month and have not had any problems, always runs smoothly. the paste is great, when the gun gets warm it turns into a liquid and when the gun cools down it turns back into a paste.
