    It's the oil turning to goo. Not the guns.

    I run my guns dry. With just a film of oil.
    This was the standard in Germany. And we in Oregon are a lot like Germany climate wise.

    I know people like to run there AR's wet. But no reason to in the NW.
    We have a great climate to facilitate the operation of semi and fully auto guns.
    And who cares about climates other than where you live? And would fight?

    Too dry can cause many problems, one is galling.
    Better wet and dirty, than dry and not functioning.

    You won't get any wear.
    As for problems you will get more running wet.

    I burned thousands of rounds through a single m-16 in Germany.
    They don't need to be wet near the 45th parallel. In a rain forest.

    Tell me how many rounds did you get through your M-16 running wet?



    Still. Run your gun like you feel you should. :s0092:

    Great videos. I actually thought the SKS would fare better due to the region it comes from.
    But I don't plan on using mine anywhere under -10 top.

    The M1911s (.45), M3s (.45), M16A1s, M2s (.50 cal), M60s (308), M73 Coax (.308), Dragon, M203 (40 mm), TOW, M105, & 152 MM all fired just fine in Korea @ (-) 5 degrees f.

    We were instructed to use 30wt (if it would pour out of the jerry can :eek:) on all our weapon systems.

    I hope I never have to do that crazy stuff again.
