    So is Eezox good for cleaning/lubing?

    Yes it is. Use it for all my guns.

    Larry Seecamp also uses it on all his guns before they go out the door to the sales market.

    Yep, that's what sold me on Eezox. I've been using it for years on all my guns and only had great results. Use it on knives and anything else that needs lubrication too.

    I've been using Eezox for 10 years, at least. I use it as both a lubricant and corrosion inhibitor. Works great. I still use a heavier oil for things like slide/frame rails, connectors, barrel exteriors, etc., but for everything else on my non-Glocks, it's Eezox. Even on my Glocks I still use Eezox on the exteriors.

    Excellent stuff.

    I use it on the outsides of all my slides for rust prevention.

    Agreed, it is good stuff, But since I live in a cold climate where I can't open the windows for half a year, I stopped using it due to fumes.

    anybody like (or have problems with) Weapon Shield?

    I use Eezox for rust prevention and it works very well.
    I used it on all my firearms and magazines before putting them away.
    I came back 3 years later and they were all in same condition despite being kept in a hot and humid South Florida garage.

    I can't recommend it for that. It just seems to be too thin for good lubricating properties and nothing special as far as solvent goes.

    BUT:
    It is definitely the very best rust prevention made. Wipe anything down with it and it absolutely will not rust. I wish I knew what it has in it.

    BreakFree doesn't seem a whole lot thicker, yet it's one of the most commonly used lubricants around.

    Eezox is fine as a cleaner, lube and protectant. I've been using it for years.

    I would recommend it more as a preservative. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    The Eezox that I used didn't have very much smell of any kind. I haven't bought any in the last 10 years so maybe it's been changed.

    You're right BreakFree probably is commonly used, but not by me. I don't like it.

    Eezox is great stuff. I use it up here in AK in the winter as it doesn't seem to gum or stick in -40F. I use a spray degreaser and wipe down the actions and then use EEzox, great stuff and I've been using it for 6 years or so? Back when they had it in the 4oz plastic bottles before they made the switch to metal.
    I have not used it much as a rust preventative, I'll have to try it on my shotgun barrels this coming season.

    It's very good but you're right about the fumes they are obnoxious and worry me, I use it with a mask outdoors.

    Eezox is great as a CLP. Been using it for years. For the shooters that like to good smelling stuff, go get some Tri-Flow.

    Try this. Clean with the normal products that you use. Then wipe what ever it is with eezox. See if the Eezox soaked swab comes away clean.

    I bet that it will get dirt that the other products left behind.

    It is a great rust inhibitor. It is a solvent. It leaves behind a lubricant.

    This is my list of gun care products

    Eezox, Solvent: rust prevention, lubrication
    Butches Boreshine: rifle barrel cleaning
    Militec-1: heavier lubricant for rails, Bolt carriers etc.
    Linseed oil: wood stocks preservative

    Fumes are noticable. I wear gloves and use it in a well ventilated area.

    it wore right through the finger tips on my gloves, so I know it is a good solvent! Worried what it would do to plastic frames though....

    Anyone use Weapon Shield?
