    Any of you guys tried using armor all on your Glock mags and apply armor all on the inside of the grip and magazine well.

    Any bad effect to the polymer?

    Any disadvantage?

    One advantage I could think of is that it would slide much better on/off the well.

    I would not apply it on the grips, it would make it slippery.

    "Will probabaly attract dirt and dust."

    What if you used the "Armor All Wipes" ? I think it's not a bad idea, might try it today.

    Does your mags stick when you try to release an empty one? Though it may be nice to look at as its all glossy, but I have always thought of functionality over form, reliability over asthetics and keeping it simple by if it aint broken, dont fix....My thoughts only

    no it doesn't stick pero mabagal ang release maybe because of the lightweight factor of the mag when empty, just to add to the sliding factor though.

    i wipe all my mag tubes with the tire black dressing made by eagle 1.
    cherry scented pa.

    i don't use armor all bec. it gums up when it dries unlike the silicone based sprays which dry cleanly.

    i also use a rag sprayed with tire black to clean my reloaded ammo before matches. cleans the brass of any sandy materials and grit. makes it slicker going up the mag tube and in the feeding.

    dry lube'd mga mags and ammo ko. but avoid applying it to the grip bec. it will make it too slippery.

    try ninyo.


    :thumbsup:

    It's not the "form".;)
    One who competes always have to look for that extra edge. A fraction of a second on a mag change can do or break you. You don't want it glossy, you want it slippery, hence no armor-all on the grips.
