Mil-Comm TW25B grease?????




Hey guys, anyone ever used Tw25B grease from Mil-Comm on their rails??

I found some in the cabinet I forgot I had... I remeber thinking it was good grease, but never used it on a 1911.

Any opinions or thoughts??

I've been using the Milcom grease for about 3 years, in conjunction with CLP.
Its good stuff, but I wouldn't suggest that it's a substitute for quality oil.

Yes, I have used it as well and it does contain a quality oil. The only oil that should be used with it is one of the other Mil-Comm oils. In the case of the 1911, MC2500, which is the same oil as in the grease so compatibility is assured. And full benefits can be then seen. You will never realize the value, or quality, if it isn't at least used as the developer has seen it should be. That will then be a benchmark to improve on, if not happy.

I use Mil-Comm products on my Glocks, Sigs and 1911s. They work well and don't stink up the house. As Log Man said, follow their instructions if you are going to give their products a fair evaluation.

I use and would recommend TW25B on the rails. In fact, I just ordered another tube two days ago.

I also use the Mil-Comm TW-25B grease on slide rails, and Mil-Comm oil (can't remember the number) on everything else that needs lubrication.

I use it as well. It holds up nicely for my standards.

Few hundred rounds of dirty ammo and it still ran smoothly along with not gunking up.

A few dots on the rails and shes butter smooth.

I bought a tube of it years ago but just started using it. Works well and stays in place. I did degrease application areas prior to use. Like it so far and may buy some more down the road.
