One word for cleaning, lubrication, and rust prevention. GUNZILLA It is virtually odoless, so using it in the house is fine. Excellent cleaning characteristics, easy on the hands, and will remove black powder residue with the best of cleaners. Have not seen it at any of the gun stores in my area, but you can order from the website with the link provided. Order some, you will be very pleased....zorro49 forgot the link! http://www.topduckproducts.com/

I received a $9.00 oiler pen from weapons shield free for the asking. I used it on a new weapon during a training class with no problems. I am sold. I ordered another pen and a small bottle for my range bag. Give them a try.

I also sent Weapon Shield an e-mail received the pen oiler in 4 days used it and liked it. Ordered a bottle from Midway because I wanted a large stock pile on the shelf in case I can't find it in a year or two when the pen runs out, a little does go a long way.



Great stuff I plan on throwing out my other gun oil.

You are correct. I was surprised at how little I had to use to get good results.

Tetra lubes are good stuff, but I don't think there's really a miles better option for gun lube. It's not a high temperature situation like an engine, so the requirements are a lot less stringent. I'm currently using Militec 1, but that's because a buddy of mine gave me a rather sizable bottle. Before that, I used Breakfree quite a bit with adequate results, and a lot of professional shooters I know of really like Slip 2000. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure it's GTG. About the only thing I don't use is Remoil. It's too thin and doesn't stay where you put it. It's lubricating ability appears to be negligible.

If you ever carry your gun in cold country you might be better off using a light oil such as REM Oil or similar rather than STP or grease.



I expect there is a hunter or two on this forum that has had or heard of a rifle freezing up in sub zero weather because of thick lubricant. It can be a bit irritating if you are hunting or being hunted by Bear or other large game.



Guns have a little different set of requirements than your automobile.

I dont hunt with my personal defense pistol, and besides, even if it is cold, which its not where I live, my pistol stays at my body temp because its always on me, and besides cars are no different, they have mini explosions going on inside them just like guns do, its all metal on metal, theres no difference at all.



Gas ignites, explodes, then piston moves

striker hits primer, powder ignites, explodes, slide moves



whats the difference?

Like others here, I too sent Weapon Shield an email and got the pen just a few days later. It works great and in a needle form is very handy. They'll get more of my business - it also speaks very highly of them to send a free "sample" despite the fact that this will last a long while.

By Weapon Shield sending a free sample they have sold a lot of their products and it shows a lot of confidence in their products. I got a sample many months ago and have reordered a large bottle twice since then. I not only use it after every range visit but keep a oily rag around to wipe my guns down with every time I fondle them. Good stuff!

I got a weapon shield sample over a year ago and tried it. Worked OK, but didn't stand up to extending outings as well as my fave, Gun Butter. In AZ so heat makes alot of the oils move when carrying and the dust + heat + grime of shooting gummed up my 1911s when using weapon shield within 100 rounds. That happened several times. Still like using a light application of weapon shield to wipe down the exterior. Bore snake + Hoppes work on the internals. Gun Butter stays in place and for me lasts longer under the hotter and heavier use time.

Has anyone tried the grease that Weapon Shield makes to lube the slide? I was actually thinking of using it in my ATV based on the good reviews with the Weapon Shield product. Wonder if they send samples of that out as well.
