Cool. When I first checked there wasn't one locally, but I used my work zipcode and found a place.

Thanks Dano!

What's the difference between the AS and the NS and what's in the can I received?

It's actually AS and NAS (Aerosol and Non-aerosol). The non-aerosol form comes in a pump bottle, but Fluid Film is about the same viscosity as paint so it does not come out well. We really only keep that for applications where the propellant could be dangerous.

We send out the sample cans in the aerosol form.

Used Fluid Film on my AR for the first time last weekend, semmmed to work great. I like how it clings to the metal better than say Rem Oil. The only complaint that I have is that sice it sticks to the meat so well, alot of it got thrown in my face through the charging handle and I had black dots all over my forehead after the day of shooting. A small price to pay for knowing that my gun is better lubricated. I will be ordering up some more once I am through with my sample bottle.

Dano, what is your take on using it inside the barrel applied with a cotton patch after a good cleaning? Is it a bit too thick? I think most of it would be blown out the end of the barrel after the first few shots anyways...

After stumbling across this thread I went out to the local tractor supply store earlier today to pick up a can and see for my self. To test it I sprayed it on an old Enfield that I rescued from a barn. Eventually it will be restored but for now it just sits in the basement. The bolt had been frozen shut due to old grease, gunk, time, and who knows what else. I sprayed a liberal amount of film, let it set for a few hours, and bingo, the bolt is now open after who knows how long. I think I just found my new lubricant!

I've been using fluid film for a while now. It's a great product.

I use it sparingly on my firearms. I clean firearms with it and lube firearms with it. The stuff is weird. If you want it to clean, it cleans. If you want it to lube, it lubes. It's like your wish is fluid films command

I don't mean to sound like a dummy, but exactly how is this stuff and other super-lubes different than and superior to WD-40?

All I have used on my guns for years is WD-40, as gun oil (Hoppes) seems so sticky it draws dust and gunk and I don't trust that it won't get gummy when below freezing.

After some further use, I found that the fuid film was seriously accumulating powder residue in the gas rings, hammer, and nooks and crannys inside my upper receiver on my AR. Maybe I just used too much of it? I am sure that is it a terrific product used in the right application, so I may try using it as a solvent in small amounts on a rag before I go to the good ol Rem Oil I have been using for years.
