SlipStream Weapon Lube
« on: September 18, 2009, 03:30:56 PM »
We have some testers on other sites going to be writing about their tests with our lube system. I thought I would put some of them up here.

This first one is from mqondo of Utah Concealed Carry.

Quote
So I cleaned my .45....again. I cleaned it up after shooting a few days ago, but needed another cleaning to give the new lube a try. When I first saw the lube I noticed that it was almost black. I have used black lubes before, and it seems to be a major pain to clean up, and gets everything dirty. However, after putting a thin layer on everything internal on the .45, the new lube from Crusader virtually disappears. I was quite excited about that. He said that the lube goes a long way, and should last me for quite some time. I applied it, and used very little of the supply that he gave me. I'm thinking he wasn't just whistling Dixie when he said this. Although his pooches may have been barking a similar tune....  I have been using Lubriplate for the last little while and have liked how that stuff works. Crusader's lube is much thicker than the other lubes I have tried in the past, and stays right where you put it. I also tossed a little bit of the oil supplied onto the trigger and hammer areas and worked it around a little. The new lube is quite slick, and so far I am impressed with it. I will write a bit more once I have had the chance to take the .45 to the range. Thanks for the opportunity to try your new lube, Crusader.

Man that is awesome!  I'm excited to give this a run.  When are you starting retail?  And more info on the "other" lube you were talking about, the bonded one?  BTW How many testers from WETA are running this stuff?

Retail on this is litterally as soon as my product order gets here and I can mix the componants. Question, what "other" lube was I talking about? I'm missing your meaning. This lube will bond to the metal. I'm getting ready to send samples out to 3 key players here.

Just for general info folks, if you'd like to order some now just shoot me a PM and you'll be the first ones I ship it out to. You guys have been a great support to us and we'll take care of you.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm with you now. Our in house treatment will come as soon. This is going to be an expensive service (in the $100 range) but absolutly permanent.

Expensive service for a hundred bucks?   :scrutiny In my mind I'm still comparing that to NP3 which I know George said isn't close but anyways, thats me.  That service is almost 300.  So not worried about this.

BTW any word on the FFL?

Well that was an off the top of my head guess and in all fairness we really haven't had time to work out the details and test the system. Spit balling a price really isn't fair to you guys and that's my bad. Once we get the lube out there we'll work on our process for the permanent lube. Really we just need to know how much procuct will be expended on the average gun because that is the biggest expence.

You aren't giving me a hard time. Which are you wanting to try on your P229 the lube or the permanent service? The final containers are on their way but I have containers the same size. Would you like some?

We can do that.


Oh, I should put this out there for you guys. I have paypal set up so you can pay via credit/debit. When you're ready to order just send me an email stating what your order is. I will email you back an payment request that will link you to paypal so you can get it paid for and I can get it sent out.

Ya know, I would love to try a batch in my new AR, depending on price.  Be good to get some proper lube, and support Crusader at the same time. ;D

Guys please note the updated cost. I forgot to add in the fact that I have to ship it to you. I'm just adding a flat $5 for those of you outside the Salt Lake Valley.

Thanks

A S&W Rep was shown SLIPSTREAM today.  He felt the before and after... and was BLOWN AWAY.  He wasn't the easily impressed type.  He was skeptical.  Now he's a believer and wants some to.

At work (with like 800 different firearms) I've been quietly testing this stuff... the worst of the AR-15's.  The gnarliest of the shotguns.  The raggedest of the revolvers... even a Glock.  Funny thing... with the Glock you don't think it really did that much... until you feel the other Glocks.  Then you realize that you are not hearing the same noises and feeling any grit... it's just... smoother.  And the old used Taurus I put Slipstream it... it went out the door today.  Gone.   "Hey, this is pretty nice."  Sold.  There is a pattern here.
The AR's I put it in... some didn't feel much improved at first.  But you keep cycling the action... letting that stuff work in... and all the sudden you realize that it's almost like it's a different gun.  A better gun.
