    How come I hardly ever hear of anyone using Sentry Solutions Tuf-Glide on their guns? Does anyone use it? Pro's? Con's????:confused:

    "Pure mineral spirits carries the active ingredients and provides cleaning action. It quickly evaporates, and Sentry's proprietary ingredients bond to the surface. The bonding ensures long-lasting effectiveness, and reliable dirt free performance." - Sentry site

    I never see it for sale, but I've heard that it works. I'm not real fond of using mineral spirits indoors, especially if I'm using enough to wipe down a few guns.

    mineral spirits => "Toxicology -Eye, skin and respiratory irritant. Harmful if swallowed, causing vomiting, diarrhorea, drowsiness, and, in severe cases, pulmonary oedema. Harmful by inhalation. In high concentration may act as a narcotic. Degreaser. Harmful if splashed in the eyes. Typical OES 575 mg/m3 (8h TWA)" - some site I googled up

    I use Tuf-Glide on my knives. It penetrates well and leaves a slick film that doesn't attract dirt.

    I do not use it on my guns because the lube doesn't work as well as plain gun oil (I favor Breakfree CLP).
    I've put some Tuf-Glide on my Sig 228 and after 50 rounds it felt like I was shooting it without any lube.
    Cycling the action, it felt like I had cleaned the rails with alcohol and reassembled dry.
    I don't know if it hurts the gun, but I'm not taking chances.
