Lubricoat No. 105
I recently got a can of Lubricoat No.105 engine assembly lubricant. I was going to get myself a can of 130-A (gun grease) for use on my rifle but I got this here can for free and was wondering if it would work. I know there are certain types of grease to avoid that will cause stress cracks to from.
Has anyone used 105? What’s your opinion of this stuff? And, do you think it would be good to use?
On a non tuned 1911… about 80 years old…
On a tuned up mini-14….
On a JP v-tac rifle that I am building…(ar15)
…Arsenal 5.56 Kalashnikov
… Various .22s, handguns and rifles
…revolvers and other automatic handguns….

Sorry if this question has been asked before, I did some searches but didn’t find much on it. Thanks for your input…

I just want to know if this stuff is suitable as a gun grease…

I would be more concerned by whether it thickens up in cold weather. As long as you are in warm weather should not make a difference.

There are however several good ones you can use.

Grease Auto and Artillery GAA which is synthetic milspec
Grease Aircraft Wide Temp Range WTR, also synthetic.
Mobil 1 Synthetic grease (pink in color)

Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil is most what I use. all of these good to well below zero.
