Firearms lube ???

Recommended Posts

Max-tuff is a synthetic lubricant used as assembly lube for building motors gear boxes,  intermediate lube I like a thin oil like Remoil

but when I am doing a major clean like a complete disassembly and clean relube and reassemble I use Max-tuff I am getting a bit tired of every lube that has to do with firearms has to be labeled tactical or is a FIREARMS ONLY LUBE.

 Now I agree some lubes are not for firearms because they are hygroscopic or attract water mix with water / humidity and actually create an environment for rust called MUD dirt mixed with lube and water well maybe sludge would be a better word.  having clean repair and do custom work on firearms at one time I found that certain lubes finishes are less that what they are touted to be a recent cruise over the net on firearms finishes some act like they are impervious to cryptonite nothing further fro the truth  recent recent use of black nitride it wears like carbon smoke maybe not that well I have had just about every coating except a few recent ones and figure matte black bar-b-q paint is better it's cheap I can find it anywhere and a 3M scrub pad and I got a new finish when I have to send off for weeks or months and pay through the nose for Di Vinci to "paint" the Sistine Chapel on my rod name dropping is common now price dropping is more unbecoming tossing around numbers that sound like used car prices if your not going to use it as a daily driver it will be a beautiful safe queen tools used look like used tools, or al least have some burnished spots from holster wear IMHO.

Hoppes is the best general cleaner i use it for a bore swab on my rifles I use sweets now and again depends on how many rounds and then after the bore is cleaned I run hoppes and wipe everything down with it.

Max-tuff is just to lube points of contact and any good lube will suffice for intermediate lubrication,

WD-40 can be used for about everything except firearms.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
