Gunslick...Comments?




What are the forum's thoughts on Gunslick? Good, great, something better? I wasn't sure where to post this.

O.K. I will start the discussion. Be ready for this to grow a ton.

I am very opinionated. I have been cleaning and lubricating guns for 35 years.

To Clean

Montana Bore Extreme

To Lube

Tri-Flow

I have found nothing that can compare to either.

I have been using Gunslick for many years. I bought out a box of gun stuff at an auction back in the late 70's. There was alot of Gunslick products in that box. Dozens of small grey tubes of black grease that work very well. If I found another box full of that grease I'd buy it also.

I have never used Gunslick, but I can't imagine anything working better than Slipstream.

Gun slick is awesome, it's not such a good idea to use it with aluminum especially in a humid climate. From what I understand the graphite in gunslick mixed with water can cause corrosion on Aluminum parts, but I have never seen it. I love gunslick for the slide, but I've never used it anywhere else on my 1911. Tetra gun grease, montana gold, and shooters choice are some others you might want to check out.

I use Hoppes Semi Auto for cleaning, it works better than the rgular Hoppes 9 to me at least. I think I might try some of that Montana bore cleaner on the next go round, I have heard good things about it.

Every Gunslick product I've used, and I've used a few, was fine.

Use to use gunslick, but didn't like the mess it made from the graphite. Started using white lithium grease when I bought my first SS pistol, and I use a light coating of white lithium grease on all my firearms. To clean I just wipe everything off and relube, as soon as I get home from a range session. If I let it set a few days after shooting then I spray things down with WD-40 and wipe off and relube with W.L grease.
