This stuff was recommended to me by a gunshop owner after I discovered some galling (correct spelling?) on my newish 229. The galling was rough and I just about cried when I saw it. He said for extended periods of shooting this stuff would hold up. Any experience opinions or options would be appreciated.

RIG and RIG +P are still two of the finest products on the market today.

To answer your question - YES - your gunsmith is totally correct. It was designed when the metallurgy and methods were going through changes and galling was in fact a problem. RIG+P was invented as the cure.

It works even with the better metallury and techiques we have today. I works with various steels, AL and the various alloys variants.

It does not require very much...I mean a thin film you cannot see is all one needs. It also works in extreme cold and heat enviroments. It does prevent corrosion, rust and pitting as well.

RIG came out in 1935, I forget when RIG+P came out. I am 49 and it "is what one used".

CRSam is a bit older and a LOT wiser than I ...he has been using it since...a real long time.

Sounds like your gunsmith is a credible knowledgable fellow by his suggestion alone. :)

I use it on the slide rails of all of my autoloaders. Great stuff especially for long-term lubrication. I bought it for my 92F in Stainless.

I mix Rig +p 50-50 with FP-10 to make a superior lube that also protects stainless (and stays put). I use it exclusively on all my stainless guns and wear is almost zero.
