    I would not believe this if I had not tried it and saw it with my own eyes.
    A friend just treated his G17 with Militec-1 lubricant.
    www.militec-1.com
    His point of aim changed 1.25 inches to the left at 10 paces / 30 feet.
    It required altering the location of his rear sights to get the gun hitting dead on again.
    I treated my G21-SF and it too moved left about 1 inch at 10 paces / 30 feet.

    We tested this on his Smith & Wesson M1911-A1.
    We test fired the gun at the same distance from a rest and noted that it hit dead on with a 1 inch grouping.
    Then we treated the gun with the Militec-1 lubricant and went back to the range.
    Although the groupings stayed realitively close together the point of aim changes 1.5 inches to the left shot off the same rest.

    I treated my G30 and test fired it and nothing changed with it still printing dead on at 10 paces.

    Were are dumb founded so I called the Militec people in Washington and they denied ever having a firearm change point of aim with the use of their product.

    So...
    Has anyone else had any experience with this stuff and if so, what was your outcome?

    Thanks

    Sounds like some Militech-1 is on the grip or hand of the shooter.
    I've used as my main lube for over a year, never had a "point of impact" issue

    I think you got some on the rear sight and it slud over.

    My sights move almost every time I fire my gun. Hardly ever hit the same place twice!:rofl:

    Yep, noticed the same thing when WalterGA was still on this site and advocated the use of Mobil 1. Things move milliseconds faster with a good frictionless lube and makes the weapon less prone to the 'post trigger squeeze' movement. Miss this old fella, he was ahead of his time for common sense. Here's one for Walter, wherever you are....
