Is the company name RIG, or is that the product name? Our local gunshops aren't up on all the stuf, so where should I look? Thanks.

Steve....your profile doesnt say where you are. PM your state if you want.

RIG is the product name and an acronym for Rust Inhibiting Grease.

RIG Universal for most applications.
RIG +P Stainless for stainless to stainless interfaces.

Marine hardware supplies
Machine shop supplies

Bass Pro Shops

Good gun stores.

Sam, Colorado. No Bass Pro, no Academy Sports, no good gun stores, whatever that is. I can hear that now...

"Do you sell RIG grease?"

"Uhh, hang on. (yelled to back) DO WE SELL RIG GREASE?"

(From back of store) "What does he want that for? ---No."

"Uhh, no, we don't have that...I got some Tetra here though..."

(Me) "I'm sure you do. Thanks anyway."

I'll keep lookin' around unless anyone knows of a Colorado source that isn't on the Western Slope. (I'm in Colorado Springs).

Somebody in the Springs must have it.
If all else fails, try the folk at the shooting center.

Or contact the parent company for a dealer in your area.

Hmm, the Oly Shooting Center might...is that stuff applicable for smallbore and air rifles that Olympians would use?

BTW, you would be surprised at how podunk this town still is. I may have to trek to Denver for this stuff.

Lots of assorted hardware lurks at the center. Not just the smallbore, shotgun n air used in competition. And usually some pretty good smiths.
