    Hello to all,

    I'm new to this forum and have many Glocks in my battery which consist of 9's and 45's. My basic question is has anyone tried the Glockmeister's lubricant/oil as opposed to Glock's own copper based grease? I usually just use Breakfree oil to lube my rails and such. If the opinions are favorable I might get my CC out and try one bottle of each or just one. Let me know guys/gals.

    The copper stuff is just anti-seize compound and should not be re-applied to the gun.

    WalterGA,

    Yes I've seen many thoughts about using Mobil 1 OIL but can you explain why this is so much better than others like Breakfree or for that matter any other oil?

    I'm perfectly happy with the $1 bottle of Rem Oil. I have never seen any excessive wear when I use it. On my 1911's I use Wilson's Ultima Lube but for my Glocks and Revolvers I just use Rem Oil. Works great and is cheap.

    WalterGA,

    Many thanks for the info but for now I'm just gonna use Breakfree as I don't believe my Glocks will get that hot to cause a "cook-off" problem/issue.

    Later,

    Been surfing around a bit looking into the best lubricants for handguns. I currently use BreakFree CLP, but have read that FP-10 is a far superior CLP than breakfree. Just ordered me some yesterday($5 for 4oz), pain in the arse finding some on the web tho:)

    Just my 2 cents from my online research.

    www.brownells.com has it So does Galyan's.

    I've used, Militec, Breakfree CLP, FP-10 CLP, Remoil and Mobil-1. They all work fine for me and I couldn't really tell the difference. However, Militec is proven to not be very good at rust resistance and Remoil is to thin.

    My preference is FP10, the guys on the AR board swear by it. If and when I ever run out of FP10 I'll use what's left of my breakfree. After that, who knows?

    www.fp10.com

    Or type in FP-10 to just about any search engine. I've tried them all, NEVER seen anything like the fp10. I can actually see and feel the difference.

    If you email them for samples George Fennel is the one to direct it to. Quite a nice and helpful person.

    FP-10 is the absolute BEST oil for a stainless steel firearm & excelent for all others.
    I use it exclusivly on my series 180 Pasadena .44 AutoMag. What's THAT tell you ????
    And yes, the AutoMag gets shot, it's not a "Safe Queen", as it's my favorite lg. caliber for bowling pins.
    The .45 1911 w/optics is faster, but the AutoMag is a LOT more soul satisfying!

    Hi Guys,

    I have a bottle of FP-10 and it seems/feels no different than any oil I've tried. I have so much oil on hand I don't need to buy for a good 6 years!!! To me there all the same.

    Interesting information I found online, ... so they're not all the same.


    Wear Tests were performed by an Internationally recognized ASTM Research Facility in San Antonio, Texas, between Breakfree CLP® and Firepower FP-10 Lubricant Elite™.

    The test results show two categories of data. One being the load wear index, or scar on the bearing after the test reaches its maximum lubricity or seizure point. The second being the seizure point itself. As can be seen from the attached data, the load wear index of Break Free indicates 61.83 and a weld point (bearing seizure) of 315 kg. When FP-10 was run under the identical conditions, it did not seize, even at the highest load point possible on the machine (720 kg).

    The results obtained from wear tests performed according to ASTM D 2783 are as follows:

    Oil Code ____________Load Wear Index _______Weld Point. (kg)
    Break Free CLP __________61.83 _________________315
    Fire Power FP-10 __________N/A _____________No Seize at 720

    Firepower FP-10 did not seize at the highest load available in this test procedure.
