Slip 2000 doesn't burn off either. I use it on my AR10 BCG so I don't have to carry a 50 gal drum of oil to the range w/me. I'll have to check out the Frog Lube.

Has anyone tried M-Pro 7? Just saw it at the LGS. Had not heard of it before.

Gun oils and greases are overpriced "snake oils" in fancy packaging, nothing more. Know what a Castrol Rep told me your getting when you spend $8.00 for a bottle of "Castrol / Hoppes Synthetic Gun Oil"? Castrol Syntec Motor Oil with an emulsifier added to it. You can buy it all day for around $4.50 @ quart, or pay $8.00 for 4 ounces of it in a fancy brushed Aluminum pump bottle. Same with a lot of these "Gun Greases".

Go into any auto parts store and you can buy a large tube of Moly Grease that will last the average shooter a lifetime for a couple of bucks. It's as good, or better than these miracle gun greases they sell for over $10.00 for a 1/4 ounce! An even better product is the Mobil 1 Synthetic Grease I have in the photo. It comes in a 1 pound tub for around $6.00. If you like the fancy hypo type applicator, you can get the ones shown at Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, or most any other drug store for around .25 to .50 cents, and it's refillable too boot. If you don't see them hanging on "J Hooks" near the pharmacy, just ask the pharmacist.

Mobil 1 can be tailored to your climate just as you would if you used it in your car. If you shoot or hunt in very frigid climate it comes in a 0W-20 grade that won't stiffen up in cold weather. Here in Arizona we don't get much cold weather, but in the Summer it can get blistering hot so I use the 10W-40 or the 20W-50 grade. It has a nice viscosity that won't run off metal and dry up in a few days like some of these water thin gun oils like "Rem-Oil" will.

Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lube has an even higher viscosity that works well on guns that tend to be run at higher temperatures like AR-15's and AK-47's. It comes in a 75W-140 Grade. ATF, (not shown), is a very clean non gumming lubricant that works well for lubricating semi autos and fast moving parts like slides and even trigger mechanisms. I'm not a believer of these so called "dry lubes". 40+ years of shooting has taught me one very simple fact. If I can see oil on my firearms, I know I won't be seeing any rust.

All of these products can be purchased at any auto parts store for around $20.00, and will last the average shooter for years, if not a lifetime. I won't overpay for these gun lubes that do nothing better except make you poorer.
I got some hi temp wheel baering grease for my ar15 and my dads ak. I also got some Royal Purple 75w - 140 is this better for pistols?

If your wife knows that stuff works well and you have no idea, you might want to cut back on your hours at the office!
