    If only there had been a lube-off after the corrosion test!

    I am willing to compromise a little on corrosion protection in trade for good friction reduction and dirt resistance. TW 25b is my current light gun goop and MC2500 the companion oil.

    Interesting article though, thanks!

    No problem,

    Please note, this is the only product I use for Rust Prevention.

    BUT....I can say there are better products out there for lubing. Eezox is not the best lube, but hey, you can't have it all.

    The reason.....Eezox will dry very quickly but still leave a layer of thin rust protection. Because is protects in a "dry" state, it does not leave any layer of actual lube.

    So if you use Eezox, you will also need to have another product for lube.

    Cheers.

    First, great link up on top, thanks! However: the Eezox site says "EEZOX® cleans, lubricates, prevents rust, and finger printing. It eliminates stiff actions, jamming and all types of residue build-up.".

    I use Eezox by itself, without additional stuff and lubes like the web site and their lit seems to say to do, and it seems like my guns work great. I have considered laying an additional layer of like LSA on top of the BGC of the M-15 as it moves so much, but wonder if it might remove the Eezox and in fact be counterproductive?

    Hmmm,

    Well what I have always done.

    When I am getting ready for a shoot. I will lube as neccessary with remoil. Then when I am done shooting and after cleaning the guns, I will coat everything with Eezox, let sit for about a minute, then wipe all off.

    So, I alwayed assumed that the Remoil is mixing with the Eezox and taking it off as the action moves etc.

    YMMV.


    PS - I think what the Eezox site was saying is that it lubricates, but only if you spray it on and LEAVE it, without wiping. I have never used it that way though.

    I have switched to Ballistol for all my weapons and use Bull Frog inhibitors in my safes. Tetra and usgi grease as needed.
