    Has anybody tried using White Lightning Teflon Based lubricant for your firearms? I use it to lube some parts on my bike and it's very dirt resistant so I was wondering if it's advisable to use on guns since it doesn't drip out as well. Dries up like a slippery film.

    Thanks guys. :)

    its just lube, you can use anything that will do its job, some like synthetic. teflon based like break free, some like moly based, its just lube and will work on any pistol

    me i use fp10 since they say its the best. i also used to use break free, militec, slide glide, mobil 1, fuchs fully syntetic, guntec, etc etc etc. all seem to do the job well.

    good luck with your choice.

    me its slide glide on rails, hammer sear surface, main spring housing, guide rod, and barrel surfaces on my svi competition pistol.

    for pins, disconnector, m16 its fp10

    Sir SMB try Superlube synthetic grease. Super lagkit sir at hindi kumakayat kahit mainit na ang baril mo kakaputok. It is clear like petroleum jelly kaya less messy.;)

    I've tried militec grease then recently sinubukan ko yung slide glide. Ang laki ng difference, ang dulas talaga nung slide glide.

    White Lightning?;P

    That stuff leaves too much of a deposit. I use it on my mtn bike chain ONLY when I do use it. It cakes on all the links. I certainly wouldn't want it in a gun barrel.

    Besides,it doesn't stay on as long as regular lubes.

    Alam mo kung bike related na lube ang gusto mo puede yung Prolink Lube na ginagamit sa chains. Parang pareho lang ng Militec.

    AFAIK "dry" lubes generally don't work except in certain applications. THese lubes become displaced into uselessness. For my bike chain I wash it with diesel spiked with motor oil.

    Dry lubes have the advantage in environments that I mtn bike in. I go out in chaparral or desert trails where it's really dusty. Wet lubes gum up the works pretty good there.

    Oh now I remember. White Lightning is paraffin based. It looks like dried candle wax after I apply it.

    Thanks for your inputs guys.

    Falvar, I wanted to use white lightning just to keep the dirt/dust off my gun. Seems like it's really not advisable. Don't use it on my chain anymore as it doesn't seem to penetrate the links very well. Chain sounds like it lacks lube when I use it.

    Paltik45, I'll drop by Cristy's one of these days baka meron pa.

    Lexadoig, thanks for the tip.

    Batangueno, try ko rin yun pero sa experience ko chain lubes generally attract dirt. San meron nung Slide Glide and how much?

    Again, thanks for all the tips guys. ;f

    Slide Glide 3, if you need to thin it out then just add some oil before applying to your gun. I got this tip from McO. :)

    Slide-glide seems to be nothing but ordinary tackified grease like Shell Retinax HD3 for example...

    i've been using white lightning to dry lube my magazines and follower for a while and they work very well. i also tumble the bullets in a towel with white lightning to make them slippery.

    i've also tried pledge furniture polish to clean my ammo. works well, too

    none dude. go for the free militec. it is just as good, and its free.

    another alternative is the excess unused motor oil that you get after a 5K tune up and change oil of your car. if its good enough for our car engines, it should be ok for our guns
