Slip 2000 ewl

Like the title said, Slip 2000 EWL, anybody use it? Ive used a lot of different things (currently using FP 10), but this slip 2000 ewl seems to be consistently getting great reviews.

I guess that you're talking about the Slip2000 lube. I use it also, but haven't decided if it's better than anything else or just as good as the other stuff. And I use the Slip2000 Carbon Killer, and that stuff removes carbon better than anything I've ever used.

It's expensive as hell but it works plain and simple. I've had a light coat on both my BCGs in my ARs for months now and it hasn't gone away. Ran two mags through my 14.5" and the 18" has sand in it. It's just damn good lube.

I use Slip 2000 EWL...

That is all I use!... although I'll ocasionally add a little of the Slip 2000 EWG (Extreme Weapons Grease)

I use it on and in every firearm I own, and I really dont use anything else for a lube. All the actions on all my firearms are slicker and smoother with EWL, and I really believe all the claims Slip 2000 makes about their Lube.

I use it to clean the firearms as well. Although sometimes I might use something a bit stronger to get out stuborn carbon build up. Also you'll need some sort of copper cutter for build up in the barrel. But I have found nothing I like better than Slip 2000 EWL for a fultime lubricant and general cleaner.

Even though it's "non hazardous" I dont like to use it with bear hands, it will soak into your skin just like anything else. So I use blue Nitril gloves/ problem solved.

If you want the copper gone, use Boretech Eliminator. That stuff is truly amazing. Today I cleaned 4 rifles. The 260 wasn't too dirty, as expected, since I gave it a good cleaning a couple of weeks ago. The 270 wasn't bad at all. The 223 was nasty and I took a lot of carbon and copper out. The 220 Swift had so much copper that I thought I'd never see the end of the blue patches. Just take all that ammonia based copper remover you have and kill weeds with it. Order some Boretech Eliminator.
