    Looks like a neat lube...but mind the temperature range limitations. Here in the North, would love to be 30degrees F and up.

    Well I did some digging at work(Cat Dealer) and found that our "Desert Gold" grease is very tacky and is made for high-speed, high-temp conditions. Plus it is only $7.24 for a 14oz Cartidge! We will have to see if this stuff will work or not....

    I've used Slide-Guide for about 5 yrs now. It doesn't dry out. It works all the time. It seems sticky but the slide on my .45 and 38 super slips back and forth with ease. When I bought it he said you don't even need to clean the gun to apply it. I did and still do but I still have the same container and have cleaned/relubed both my 45 and mine and my wifes 38 super. If I ever run out I will buy it again.
    good luck

    It's very good stuff, but I like the Berryhill lube better.

    Have been using it on my Kel-Tec P-3AT for about three years -- like it very much. Stays in place (doesn't migrate) and doesn't dry out.

    I use it as a general grease on the gun not just on the slide. I use Slide-Glide on the slide rails, barrel lug, hammer interface, outside of the barrel, recoil rod and springs, and hammer where it contacts the hammer interface. I use non-drip oil (Primus gel lube) on the trigger bar, hammer block, and trigger pivot, and BreakFree CLP inside the barrel.

    Been using Mobil 1 synthetic for years on my pistols and rifles.

    During the more frigid weather, grease, any grease, threatens to thicken if not kept "warm" and can restrict slide movement effecting reliability.

    I'll stick with the Mobil 1.

    So far I think I'm the only one who knows what you're talking about. Guitar solo starts at 1:31...

    Phil Wood Grease. Been using it for years, in guns and bikes. Works like a dream and makes cleaning easier too.

    Another wonder product???

    I use the old GI standby, Lubriplate 130-A on the Garand/M1A; any brand of chassis lube if I must, and of late, Militec grease.

    I'm not aware of any short or long arms that otherwise "need" something all that special...I suspect the seller has a greater need to sell the stuff than anyone does to buy it...sort of like the old patent medicines.

    Where I am (middle TN) it's very rare to run across someone who knows anything about Brian Eno. It's happened to me exactly twice in the 17 years I've been here. Some of the most original music I've heard; I love his stuff.

    "Brian Eno's Slide-Glide" sounds like it could be one of his early album titles.

    Been using a tub of slide glide for years. Work just fine - as most lubes do, in my experience.

    I have many diff kinds of gun lubes and they all seem to work fine.
    Don't think there is any kind of MAGIC lube out there.
    I have stayed with Brian's lube because I like the way it works.
    You're results may vary.
