The German Army invented Ballistol during WWI. The valuable Mauser rifles were being ruined by corrosive ammo and rain and snow. As far as I know the German army uses Ballistol to this day.

I have used it for years, works for me.

I use lithium grease and mobil 1 for the most part. I did find and love SBGO Silver Bullet Gun Oil with 13% pig fat. This helps keep them effing muslims out of mecca.

I've got a story for the gentleman that asked earlier. Before my first deployment my rifle would jam like crazy while on ranges. I used clp at the time. It would jam on single fire and 3 round burst. Didn't matter. Anyways second day in Iraq I met a soldier going home that was selling a bottle of militec-1. I had never heard of it so I went off of what he said. After reading the bottle it's suppose to impregnant pores in the metal once it gets to operating temperatures. Sounded like a good pitch so I stripped it down and cleaned it then applied a thin layer to pretty much everything in the upper receiver. After I was done it was a week before we went out on patrol so as you can imagine there was good deal of sand and grit on everything I had oil on it. I decided to leave all the crap on it so I could do a little test (don't worry guys I was behind the 50 so don't freak because I left the wire with a dirty weapon). When the patrol was about over I asked my tc if I could shoot my m16 at a burned up car and he said make it quick. I took aim and put it on burst and started letting them fly. It ran through the entire 30 round mag with no issues. I was sold after that. I've used it since on all of my firearms and it was on my m4 in Afghanistan a couple years ago and it fired and fed every single time I needed it to. Not the best written story but it gets the job done. The only other lube I've tried on one of my pistols was the mpro7. Stuff cleans like a champ but I switched back after a couple weeks of carry. I felt weird because I hadn't done any test with it so I switched back to something I knew worked. Maybe before to long now that I'm thinking about it ill test mpro7

I have made the switch to Militec 1, any company that supplies our military with a solution to a deadly problem for free is worth a try to me. The product speaks for its self, its a dry lube and works great
