Here is an update on the corrosion boards after 43 and 42 days outside.



The last three samples on board #1 are about to give up.



Board #2 samples are all finished. Every sample is showing corrosion.



The indoor samples (after 41 days) are showing more failures. (Only in the thumb print area)

Rust prevent, WD 40 regular), Militech1, Strike hold, Archoil, 3 In One iol, Kroil, Hoppe's MDL. Mil Poro 7 have now failed along with the others that had failed earlier.

As mentioned earlier I put together a device to capture the dynamic coefficient of friction for all the products I have previously evaluated (including a static friction evaluation)

Ive tabulated the results and they are similar to those of the static coefficient of friction evaluation.

Here is a video showing how the evaluation was conducted and how excess lube actually worsens or confounds our attempts to make metal slide easier against one another. The video will show that only in the absolute minimalist state do the gun lubes actually reduce the friction/drag forces.


All the products were run through the friction device and the chart below shows how each product performed in comparison to one another as well as dry steel (no lube at all)

Assume job; you have much more patience I do; as the older I get the less I have. Thanks again...

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

A lot of effort put into this testing, well done! I would have liked to have seen the Fireclean product in this testing, though.

Stunning work!! I'm really impressed. Thank you for all your work!

I'm basically a simplest (or perhaps a simpleton) so I prefer a CLP product. I didn't see any tests on cleaning ability, or am I blind?

I'm wondering if the chemistry and ability to clean and dissolve lead/copper/gunpowder residue, directly opposes the the chemistry needed to protect and lubricate. Basically, if those products that protect best, would clean least, or would the chemistry be complementary? Any guesses?
