Sizes

Hi Edward!
No worries. Weapon Shield is available in the following sizes:

1 ounce
4 ounce
16 ounce
1 Gallon
5 Gallon
55 Gallons

Anything over 16 ounces is not listed as a direct order item on the website, BUT we have posted our 800 toll free number there for that specific purpose.

Best regards,
George

Sounds good George.

I linked to your site and found a lot of it unreadable because the text is overlapping for some reason. Dunno if its my system or your site? I'm running Windows XP if that makes a difference. Anyone else experiancing this on his site?

I've heard it from a very few Ed. I believe that it occurs with each individuals browser and resolution setting. Try changing your res to 1024x768 or greater. Also, I suggest using MSIE. Some folks may use Mozillia Firefox, Opera, AOL, or another browser which may have something to do with it. Sorry for the inconvieniance. We're looking at redoing it all in an xmls compatible format as well. That may help.

Best regards,
George

Is this product mainly a lube/protectant?

I believe it's a CLP, at least that was my understanding.

I'm not George, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn once...

Weapon Shield is a CLP (cleaner, lubricant, protectant).

For heavy fouling, copper fouling in rifles, or established corrosion a single use product may be in order.

For serious copper fouling I prefer Kroil and JB Bore Compound or Remington's bore cleaner. Shooter's Choice bore cleaner and copper remover is also great.

Flitz polish works wonders to remove tarnish and surface rust.

For regular PM (preventative maintenence) I prefer CLP type products as they will do everything you need them to, and do it very well if you choose a good one. If Weapon Shield is better than FP-10 then we're in bidness

My experience with PM is pretty much the same as instructor Pat Rogers. Folks worry too much about getting that last bit of carbon residue or copper out of the gun, then apply just enough lube to cover a gnat's ass - and then wonder why the thing won't run through 100 rounds without a malfunction.

For weapons like Glock's, CLP is all you need. I fired 40,000 rounds through two Glock 23's, and carried them for four years, and I used only FP-10 CLP. Every couple thousand rounds I did a detail strip, but still just used FP-10. My Kimber 1911 and Taurus M85 also saw only FP-10.

I got mine today , that was fast
Smells ok , I cleaned and lubed 3 handguns with it today (1911,babyDE,608Taurus) and a Marlin 60 which had lube issues befor
I thought because its a free sample it would be in some cheap hard to use container, I was surprised to find a regular bottle
As soon as they get dirty Ill let ya know

Awesome picture. Very cool. You need some Craig Speigal grips, though, instead of the Pachmayrs.

No $ for new grips. Would LOVE some speigal boot grips -they don't make them for square buttK frames.
Look forward to giving this stuff a tryout very soon!

I'm always leery of a do all product, you know what they say, "jack of all trades, master of none". Breakfree CLP is an example, lube doesn't stay put that long.

George, my package arrived today. I plan to use it this weekend and will let you know how well it works for me.

If I can find some scrap gunmetal I may even run a few torture tests to see how well it works.

Most people are MisterPX, but there are always exceptions to the rule. My offer costs you nothing (but an email) and lets YOU decide if it's the real deal or not. And EVERYONE has my word...your emails and addresses will NEVER be sold or given out to ANYONE for ANY REASON. They are strictly confidential to us and us alone. We just have to have your address in order to mail the Weapon Shield to you.

Best regards,
George

Good to have you back George.

My sample came in today and it's raining too much to do any shooting so I decided to do a little test. I ground off 6 fresh spots on a metal wall plate and coated 5 of them with a weapons oil/protectant and left one bare as a control. Weapons Shield, Shooters Choice version of FP-10 Elite, Break Free CLP, LSA weapons oil medium and Birchwood Casey Sheath are the products I used. The plate is sitting out in a misting rain right now and after a bit I'll put it in a storage room until I see some results. I'll post a picture later.

Hank

Well I used some weapon shield to clean and lube my 1911 after shooting around 100 cast 200 over 231. I'l tell you as a powder fouling remover and lubricant it is swell. Iwas already into my standard barrell cleaning before I thought to try theweapon shield on the barrel. I followed my normal dousch it with Kroil and then come back after everything else is clean with a couple of Kroil soaked patches. It does a good job getting rid of the lead deposits left just forward of the chamber from shjooting too hard a cast bullet with not enough oomph to quickly obdurate in the bore.

Well back to the weapon shield discussion...I lubed the now clean barrel with a patch with 3 or 4 drops of weapon shield an put a drop in all the usual locations and reassembled. Bow did that DW Patriot feel slick ans smooth. Wiped the exterior down with the bore patch and back to the safe. We'll see how the lubricant is doing in a week or two after I shoot through the other 1911s and service type revolvers in the collection and get back th the Patriot. I am impressed at this point.
