synthetic gun oil with teflon


March 23, 2003, 12:21 PM
I've been using synthetic gun oil with teflon without any problems. It's good from -55 to 300 degrees, will not gum up, greatley reduces friction, and prevents rust. That's the claim of the manufacture and it seems to work. Does any one else use a similar product ? What are your thought's on this?

I've been using Super-Lube for several years with good luck.

Spray cans of Super-Lube spray-on grease are sold at K-Mart and Lowe's.

Oddly, the cans say spray-on grease, but the company sells it in tubes as an oil, with their grease being a thicker actual grease.

The oil is a thin grease/thick oil synthetic Teflon-bearing lube good from -65 to +450. I like it because it stays put much better than thiner oils. I use the thicker grease on slide rails and trigger surfaces.

It's available from
I think they still offer free samples of both oil and grease.

Lately, I've gone back to CLP Breakfree for my AR, and where max rust proofing is needed. Breakfree is a GREAT lube that contains Teflon, and is always at, or near the top on rust tests.

I had stopped using Breakfree about 10 years ago because it would dry out and turn to "varnish" after a while. Since then the company has changed hands and formula. The new Breakfree doesn't dry out.

It's really hard to beat Mobil 1.

I've been using CLP for years now and am satisfied to the point that I no longer shop around, and I've been told I'm impossible to please by many I know (they lie, of course).

The Tetra-Oil I've tried is great stuff, but smells like something rancid from a tackle box. I no longer use it.

I've used just about everything that caught my eye. I'm now using BreakFree CLP and Brownell's Action Lube Plus, a moly based grease.

Breakfree CLP
for syn oil applications.

Still use Kleenbore formula 3 and
RIG grease
Been using these since mid '60's I guess

FP10 is the only lube for me... Doesn't gunk up, cleans very well, is reasonably slick even after you 'wipe it off' and smells like cinnamon.

What more can you really ask for?

What happened to Hoppes... no mention of it here????

The NEW Tetra Oil does not stink like the oil that does not say new on the bottle. Old oil = scare away skunk. Old oil = friend's little girl said it smelled like barf.

I think I've used them all, mostly anyway, and while they have little differences in what they do best they all work well enough to get me through the day.

Living here with high humidity, I tend to stay with CLP, Rig+P, Shooter's grease, Tetra grease, Wilson grease and Sheath if putting a gun up for awhile. If I'm just lubing to go out and shoot, I dig in the box and use any old thing.

I'd bet you can use bacon grease to lube a gun, but you'll likely draw a pack of dogs walking down the sidewalk. The salt in it would probably eat your gun eventually, too.

Breakfree CLP- what I also admire about it is how it keeps the gun's internals clean even after an extensive firing session.

All I have to do is disassemble, wipe with a lint-free rag and relube!! If the barrel is not too dirty it can also be used to clean the barrel bore.

I use a teflon base white grease on the slide rails though as the CLP usually dries out here.. I am in the islands, mon!!!

Firearms actually are not as demanding as other machinery with high revs, torque and temps.

We just like to pamper or guns.

The teflon-impregnated commercial lubes are all pretty good.

Hoppes was my grandfathers oil. I use breakfree mostly. About a year and a half ago I had an appliance with a bearing that started making noise. I lubed it with Hoppes gun oil. One hour later it was making noise again. I relubed it with breakfree and it hasn't made a sound since. This is great stuff.

I have tried Militec and FP10 (free samples) and mobil 1. They all work well as a lubricant, but I don't see any improvement over Breakfree CLP.
