View Full Version : Dry Film Lubricant?

June 28, 2002, 03:20 AM
What is this stuff? Is it a lubricant? Is it a coating or refinishing compound? Who makes it? Where can I get it?

I was reviewing my USMC M16 manual on the recommendation of another member and it indicated the use of this stuff to coat or refinish items like the lower or barrel. I have a few scratches in my AR15 bbl that I would like to return to at least a semi-dark grey finish and I was wondering if this would work?

Go to a hardware store, they could tell you better than me; but I believe it's a silicone coating

Armalite has a tech note that covers refinishing magazines with DFL. Should be insightful:
