    Has anybody tried this stuff. I'm looking for a lube that will last and not attract dirt. (USPSA) The reviews sound good. CZ75B - Sig P239

    I've used it for a while now, it has to be baked into the gun, either from firing it, or through other means, but yes it works pretty well.

    I wouldn't say it's any better then CLP at doing it's job, but it still works even when the gun is bone dry.

    From an older post of mine:

    "I got a trial sample of MiliTec 1 through their website a couple of years ago, and the first thing I tried it on was my CRKT M-16 knife. I followed the clean with a degreaser, warm with a blow dryer, apply Militec and let set, and wipe dry procedure. Several weeks after applying it, I lost the knife. I really missed that knife, for almost a year, and low and behold, while cleaning a pistol one day, I found it in the bottom of the gun cleaning box (a large tackle box converted to cleaning kit). I was happy to see my knife, but also amazed to find a bottle of cold blue had leaked in the bottom of the cleaning kit and a lot of stuff in the bottom was rusty (that stuff is corrosive big time). The knife however, was untouched, not a flek of rust anywhere. I started through the safe completely dissass. everything and treating . I have been very pleased with the rust protection as well as smooth operation of everything treated with MiliTec."

    Thanks NORTEXED. That's what I've been hearing, and it sounds like what I'm looking for. NOT attracting dirt is a biggie.
    Do they still have the 'North Texas Field and Stream Gun Club' up there? I started bullseye league shooting there in the early '70s. A good place.

    I'd ask for a sample of Militec and Weapon Shield from their respective companies and compare. You can throw in Eezox into the mix and get really confused. :D I have and use all three pretty much interchangably. I also use the Militec grease very sparingly on moving/contact parts. My duty gun just sings with all of these goodies.

    Militec is an excellent lube but is marginal for rust protection. Use it on the internal parts for lube and use CLP or something else on the exterior for rust protection.

    You can order a tube of Militec-1 grease from Brownells that will last you and your children a lifetime. I've been using their oil for a couple of years and now use their grease as well. Both work great and are well suited to carry/duty guns where many other oils evaporate too quickly to be reliable lubricants.

    I've been using it for a few years and have liked it well.

    Good Stuff! We used it on all of our Gun Mounts the last deployment we were on. 6 months on a ship and it kept the Salt spray from eating the metal of our .50 cals, 25mm , and M-60s.

    It did dry out and need to be reapplied about once per week, but it protected and lubricated much better than CLP. I would say about 30% more effective than CLP.

    1SOW, yep, still here, amazingly. Just don't shoot the passing T-38's from Shepherd AFB ;-). I have belonged off and on for years, (It's up to a whopping $35.00 a year now), and guess I will have to re-join, as my 13 and 15 year olds are now taking an interest in shooting. Only slight hinderance, the "Range Manager" that lives out there is kind of a b--t, I had to explain to him 1 day that "yes, I would pick up my own brass" I think this must be a sideline for him selling brass.

    ps: The curious thing about the MiliTec 1 is the way it migrates through the threads on the squeeze bottle it comes in. Wouldn't want to leave it wet around a loaded clip etc., but I guess that's part of why it works so well on weapons.
