Is it mint flavored?I remember famous revolver aficionado Grant Cunningham stating that he used a vegetable-based lubricant similar to what is used on deli meat slicers on his guns. He states that it works as well as a petroleum lube, and it doesn't irritate the skin or have poisonous side effects.
IIRC, GunBlue is a retired police armorer and certified gunsmith. What he actually says is 1) only lubricate the contact points; 2) don't overlubricate; 3) don't fall for clever marketing as inexpensive oils work just as well as expensive ones. YMMV.This thread is a gem. Judging from the 7 pages of comments (69 in all), one could reasonably conclude that no one commenting on this thread actually watched GunBlue490's video. But that’s what makes this thread such a gem. It serves as an exemplar of the more farcical side of internet discussions......
I often go with full synth Mobil1 ATF. Its light, lots of additives, good lubricity, and cheap.Lol. Oil your guns.
Pick a product. Motor oil works, i like slip 2000, juat avoid frog lube. If its a pistol, or a garand/carbine/m14, use grease. For pistols i like TW25B, and my Garand and Carbine get lubriplate
Close to 90% of malfunctions i see are caused by a lack of lubricant
I oil em up like a greasy pigI've been watching videos by GunBlue490. In a few of his videos, he insists that you shouldn't put oil on your guns, that it gunks them up and can ruin them. For example:
