View Full Version : Lube Test results.

Found this test of different greases and it got me wondering if this stuff would be good for use on the rails of a pistol. Seems to have amazing lubrication and stays put. What do you guys think?

Welcome. The answer is "maybe". :D
I also see no info on high temp performance.
I have used Tetra Gungrease on 1911 slide
and it seems to work fine.


"Caution Caution Caution! These test results don't tell us anything about how well these lubricants will perform in other applications. Don't be tempted to apply our findings to ball bearings or other situations where galling isn't a problem. If you write to us asking how this grease will work in another application, we will tell you we don't know. We only have the results of this test and that doesn't tell us how well it will work in your fishing reel, gun, motorcycle spline or anything else."

I dont see how that test proved anything towards firearms...it even states that the test is invalid with guns

I called DuPont and spoke to an engineer about Krytox.

He told me - it's not good for the firearm application. It is 100% lubrication -zero corrosion resistance.

Is it to early in the tread to mention Eezox?:)

Heck, I thought we were talking about bullet lube.
