Hi all,
I'm fairly to to the Forum here but not new to guns. I wanted to share with you my experience with a product called Weapon Shield. It was this forum that led me to getting a 1oz trial offer back when it was offered. Well I just got to use it for the first time and I have to tell you this stuff is Great !!
The first time I used it was actually right after I cleaned my guns the normal way so I cant tell you that its a great cleaner for the first time cleaning with it but I can tell you its a great protectant and and easy cleaner once you have applied it.
Heres my story: Last week I was at the range and fired 100 rounds thru my SR9 and 100 + thru my P345. I cleaned them both as I normally do, had them all laid out for lubeing. Took out the bottle of Weapon Shield and lubed my P345 with it. Being a 45 it gets nasty dirty after 100 rounds. Then did the SR9 my normal way. Put em back together and put them back in the bag for this week.
Came home tonite from the range once again after putting 100 rounds thru each. I was not even thinking about or remembering what I did with the Weapon Shield last week until I stripped and started cleaning the 45 with the Weapon Shield. Wow !!!, The grime just wiped off with no effort at all. The feed ramp which I normally have to soak and let sit 2 or 3 times was spotless with just a little elbow grease. Didnt have to touch the gun with my cleaning brush at all. I would say it cut my cleaning time in half for this gun. Smiling thinking the same would be apply to the SR9. Wrong!!! Soak, scrub, brush, soak again, brush again, at least 3 tries to get the feed ramp clean. To me this stuff is truly a one step marvel for cleaning and lubing your gun with ease in a lot less time. I would like to hear from others that may have tried this product. Thanks for listening. Check out the link for Weapon Shield

I've had the same very positive experiences with Weapon Shield. I'm now using it in/on everything from AR's to Ruger revolvers and everything in between. It's great stuff!

I've been using it exclusively on all my firearms long enough I've almost used a 16 oz. bottle. Time to get more. I discovered that each time I used one and then cleaned with Weapon Shield it got easier each time through about 4 cycles. Amazing stuff. The only other cleaning product I keep is Sweets for the heavy copper fouling I get with the 22/250. I pitched everything else.

tried it a while back, but I had the same results with clp.

I always clean the guns and lube with CLP then a swab down the barrel before storing. After a day of shooting on the range I come back run a brush down the bore a few times then swab clean and the rest of the gun is usually just wipe down and lube with clp where needed.

I use CLP due to corrosion from Concealed carrie plus I live on the coast. How does Weapon Shield hold up to corrosion?

I have tried almost every lube out there with Militech being the worst and CLP being the best at preventing rust from consealed carry.

Before Weapon Shield, after cleaning I would use a silicon cloth for the blued finish on my CCW. After carrying in a leather holster for about 2 hours the finish would look blotchy. Then I read where the manufacturer of Weapon Shield suggested trying it on the blued finishes instead of silicon, so I did.
The next day I carried in the same holster 9 hours and it still looked good.
To put it to the test I put it away that evening without a wipe down and carried it again for three more days. Still looked good. It must protect better than silicon and I've never seen a spot of rust and it's gone several months between cleanings. Each time you clean with it, cleaning gets easier each of the first 3-4 times so it must still be there even if you can't see it. I don't even need to use a bore brush now.
It also makes slides and triggers work smoother and easier.
Yes, I'm sold.

gets the same results w/o having to "bake" the gun!
around $12 for 4 ounces, $24 for 16 online, last i checked.

I don't think you will ever see any corrosion with Weapon Sheild. This is my 3rd application to my guns and it seems to offer even more protection the more you use it. Plus there is no oily feeling after its sits over night. You can also feel the smoothness of the action get better and better.

To Order Weapon Shield you can call (800) 390-1535 to order

Well I got my big bottle of Weapon Shield last weekend plus ordered the needle oiler they had for the hard to reach places. This stuff is awesome.

I bought a large and small bottle of Weapon Shield CLP. I find that as a cleaner, it didn't work as well as Hoppes #9. However, I did find that as a protectant it worked extremely well. It basically cut my cleaning time down by more than half after coating my range pistols in Weapon Shield and then bringing them home for cleaning after a range trip. The stuff really stays on and protects the surfaces its applied to. As far as being a lubricant, I don't really know, but I expect it's at least as good as breakfree and possibly better.

I just got my Weapon Shield in the mail today.

I have not gone out and fired the weapons yet, but I do like the way this stuff feels and goes on. I use Hoppes #9 for the solvent, but RemOil as a lube, which to me is VERY Thin. The Weapon Shield is a Very thick lube, well for a lube anyways.
I really like it so far, but will try out the lubrication aspect after the range day to see how it holds up.

Thank you Weapon Shield for a Fine Product. Good bye RemOil.

As Always, Stay Safe.

I got the "Free 14 day offer" of Weapon Shield. I have a PX4, Marlin model 60SS, Ruger Mk I, and Ruger Security Six that I've used it on. I have to say that cleaning DOES seem to be easier after I've used it on my firearms. Also, my stainless steel Marlin rifle was starting to develop surface rust where it had been handled. I've had people tell me that shouldn't be possible with a stainless steel barrel, but it was. I had been using Hoppes oil, but after switching to Weapon Shield, there has not been one bit of oxidation on it. And it has been handled quite a bit and then put back in storage without a wipe down. It is only my inexperienced opinion, but I'd say it does a great job of inhibiting rust.

What is the Weapon Shield Gun Grease used for? It only says for rifles and shotguns, but can this be used for a slide grease on pistols?

Absolutely! Where ever you are comfortable using grease...WS grease will do the job! It will also be available in a syringe and a 1 lb tub soon.

I would be interested if anyone has used the WS grease before. Specifically on the slide of a pistol. Just wondering if it collects dirt/dust/grime, or if it stays relatively clean.

I have to say I think the WS in the bottle is great stuff, but I haven't used grease before on my slide. I have heard about some downsides of using grease.

The grease is a brand new item from Steel Shield, but it is Lithium based and I really don't think it will collect dust and dirt like the old style grease. I'll get a hold of WS and find out for sure...

RocketFoot
May 1, 2009, 12:21 PM
I just talked to George from Weapon Shield and he said that the grease is good, but it will collect a bit more dust and dirt where the WS oil won't. They just recommend grease for internal workings because of that fact, plus it is more visible than the oil. (Looks messy on the outside of your gun) But George stresses that the grease is still an excellent product for those that want the feel and protection of grease on their gun. You just need to maintain and clean it often to keep it running fresh!

I hope I said that right, George! Feel free to chime in if you're reading this!

Mpro 7 cleaner for cleaning, Weapon Shield CLP for lube & protect.

This is the best combo I've found so far. Cleaning time/energy is minimal, lube is excellent, corrosion protection is excellent.

You might say, "This is an expensive way to go" but I would counter with my observation that I only need a VERY small amount of each product to fill the role(s) I use it for.

weapon shield is the only cleaner/lubricate i now use on my S&W model 686-4pp and model 64-2 snub nose revolvers. a few drops takes care of cleaning and protecting my firearms.

Even better, they are repeat sales products, capturing their users with the utmost in performance and quality, thereby causing repeat usage time and time again.

Dealers
Qualifications for becoming a “Weapon Shield” Dealer are fairly simple and straight forward.
1. Must be a retail sales merchant, preferably in the sporting goods or firearms industry. This is accompanied by a state tax license, which is proof of retail sales. The other is possession of an FFL (Federal Firearms License), which is not required but is certainly qualifying.

The distributor is defined as follows:
1. must have an established network of distribution, or business plan in accordance with one.
2. Must buy and stock for resale, case lots of Weapon Shield and/or Weapon Shield Grease, in their appropriate containments and sizes in order to service dealers and the industry in a proficient and timely manner.

Put a few drops next to each other and I challenge you to tell the difference. It's ok but no Break Free. It has no solvent or penetration properties. Good lube after cleaning but there are better.

I received the free sample pen, but based on other reviews, I ordered the 16 oz bottle, grease syringe, and 2 oz grease jar. The performed as advertised. The CLP cleaned my weapon very well. The CLP pen and grease syringe I like because I can put a little just where I want it and not waste this product. I haven't tried to refill the CLP pen from the 16 oz plastic bottle but by the looks of it, I think I can. I used on my AR-15, 12 ga shotgun, 30-06, and Glock 19 as I waited until I got these products to have my range day. It made me excited to clean my weapons. It's a one stop CLP versus Hoppes cleaning kit which is has a cleaning solvent, then you have to lubricate. My 30-06 is the Remington770 which many review cons is the sticky bolt. Mine was never that sticky to begin with, but after using WeaponShield CLP on it, then small dabs of grease with the syringe and it slides like a charm, I noticed an improvement, my 770 bolt slides smooth, even after a the trigger pull, when it is reported to stick the most. Great product WeaponShield.
Thanks George
