Crusader can not be held responsible if you use SLIPSTREAM as a personal lubricant.

In your own words:

Once the gun is well Slipstreamed, you find you need less and less. 
Quote from:  Tokugawa
This is very simple - if it has to be TAKEN from someone else, to GIVE to you, it is not a right. To force another to work, so that you may reap the reward, is called slavery. All the other talk is just obfuscation.

Please tell me you meant 'gun' in the firearm definition, and not in the "This is my rifle, this is my gun" sense... :shrug

We didn't have Slipstream back in my days overseas...

Thailand aside, and a half-serious question.

Instead of borebutter, would I receive any benefit by using Slipstream in my muzzleloader?

Using it on wads or to seal loaded chambers?

This.

May not do squat.  May give me a few more FPS and work into my barrel.  Or burn off, uselessly... :shrug

No wads.  Two pellets of Pyrex and a sabot round.

Worth trying, couldn't hurt.  If it works into the barrel, might make reloading easier.

It's muzzle-loading, or "alternative methods" season in MO, now.

Time to hit the woods with some .50 cal lumps and some Slipstream.

Worth trying, couldn't hurt.  If it works into the barrel, might make reloading easier.

That's what I was thinking, if the firing didn't just burn it off.

Thinking about it, George it may get a few hundred fps better velocity with a slicker bore.

Applied it to the bolt on the new Rem 700. Night and day improvement. I haven't even shot the rifle yet, but the bolt is smooth like buttah.

So, I have to state that I registered here just to post my experience with Slipstream (although I plan on sticking around... :D)...

I have to state right off the bat that I was a little skeptical about all the reviews I was coming across out there, and was a little hesitant to drop almost 30 dollars for an ounce of grease and an ounce of oil.   I shouldn't have worried...   :clap

I first heard about it from Larry Correia on his blog...  And I took a gamble on his positive reviews of it, based on the sheer amount of experience he has shooting and maintaining his guns...

So the first gun I tried it on when I got the little envelope of gun happiness was a pretty new Taurus PT709 Slim...   Hadn't really shot it enough to really start breaking it in, and it still had some roughness, especially in the trigger.  Tore it all down, thoroughly degreased it, and followed the instructions for applying the Slipstream, using the guideline of grease on sliding surfaces, oil on pivoting surfaces....  I applied it using a toothpick (based on someones recommendation to apply the grease with a plastic dental pick type of tool).   

Got it all back together, and racked the slide............

First I was   :shocked  and then I was  :D....   HOLY CRAP...  I swear it was at least two to three pounds lighter to rack the slide...  And felt like it was on roller bearings...  The gritty spot in the trigger was completely gone, and it felt like it was now lighter in double action than it had been in single action before the Slipstream treatment...    I couldn't wait to try it on my 1911....   ;)

Repeated the same procedure....  Now my 1911 has been shot...  A lot...  It's really well broken in...  But now.....   Now it feels like the slide is a couple pieces of glass  with perfectly smooth ball bearings in between....   I couldn't believe how smooth it worked now.... 

So I decided to really challenge it....   Pulled out my old, beat up, shouldn't ever have bought it "Unique" model 52 in .22 LR...   This gun has a HORRIBLE trigger, and a REALLY rough slide...   I figured if any gun would challenge the Slipstream, it'd be this beast....   Even on this gun, Slipstream worked mind-blowingly well...  It's not as nice as my 1911, but it really is a whole new gun...   

Well, I tried to find something that would challenge this thing....   So I broke out the beast...  A somewhat tight Mosin-Nagant (not so tight that it needed a 2x4 to open the bolt....   Normally a 2x2 did the trick).  So I tore it all the way apart, even to the point of taking the trigger apart...   And blasted it with degreaser....   And hit it with more degreaser....   And yet more...  (yeah, this thing still had a bit of cosmoline caked in there)  When I finally had just metal, I started applying Slipstream...   And I could tell just from reassembling the bolt that it was already smoother and slicker...    Lubed the locking lugs, trigger pins, all that fun stuff...  And suddenly the M-N morphed into an SVT!  :D

So I attacked my 870....   And it turned into an AA-12!!!!

Oh yeah...  The Garand was next....   Nothing changed on the outside....  But this very mysterious switch suddenly appeared....     :rotfl

Ok... Maybe I'm getting a little carried away here....    But seriously...   I am blown away by how well Slipstream worked on all the guns I've tried it on so far...   I figure the real test will be to do the 10/22 and then put 4 or 5 hundred rounds through it...  I figure if anything will challenge it, dirty .22 ammo blowing back into the receiver will be it... 

Overall though, I am very impressed with how well this product works...   :thumbup1

I just saw this.  Here's what I would try: Using a sponge on a rod, apply a good layer of SS to the bore.  Then, use a tight-fitting 'head' on a ram rod, to scrape up and down the bore, to try and work the 'particles' into the metal.  If needed/ desired, use a clean sponge to swab oil from bore, prior to firing.

And, of course, use some grease on the lock work.

IllinoisThere’s a story about a turtle and a scorpion. Scorpion is stranded on a river bank. Turtle sees this and asks Scorpion to get on his back and he’ll take him across the river. Scorpion gets on Turtle’s back and they go into the river. When they’re about halfway across, Scorpion stings Turtle. As Turtle is sinking, knowing they’re both going to die, he asks Scorpion "Why did you sting me, we’re both going to die?" and Scorpion says "It’s not my fault; it’s what I am."
