For others who will have to look this up:

http://www.otisgun.com/cgistore/store.cgi?page=/new/product.html&setup=1&ida=229&idp=0&his=0&cart_id=1525.6660

It's a barrel treatment to make it last longer, be more accurate, reduce friction (which makes me wonder if rifling is less effective) and other things.

I have no experience with it, sorry, seems gimmicky though.

Isn't Otis related in some way to Countersniper?  I remember that coming up in some thread somewhere, that Countersniper, Otis, Hellfighter, and those rediculous knives (Dark Ops?) were all related in some way (which surprised me at the time, because Otis is good stuff)

I think I remember reading about this in a different thread a while back. Apparently all the Mall-Ninja brands hired the same website designer or something.

You want the same results for a hell of a lot cheaper?
Clean your bore with MPRO-7.  Get a patch soaking wet with Slipstream.  Pull it through.  Repeat until your barrel is completely coated with Slipstream.  Leave it sit over night.  The Slipstream Nano Particles will move from the oil to the barrel's metal surface and settle in. 
The next morning, do it it again, making sure you get that oil - Or grease - all over so nothing is missed.
Run a dry patch through to mop out the excess oil.
Done.

I lost faith in Otis after I played with their AR cleaning kit and it involves a linked on swab.  Not worth my time.  Bore snake does a better ugly job than their expensive kit.

I've never heard of this lifeliner nonsense, but don't knock Otis (unless you know of a better compact kit, in which case, quit holding out).  That being said, my opinion might be influenced by the fact that I've never had to pay for any of the Otis products I have.  I suppose I could probably create a similar kit on my own for a lot less money.

The Otis compact kit... I've probably purchased and shipped about 60 to 75 of those kits to troops over in the sandbox.  A lot of soldiers really like them.

A very good thing to send.  I'm sure they were much appreciated by whoever received them.
