    I just returned from a 4 day handgun class at Frontsight. 

    I arrived a day early and shot an IDPA match in Las Vegas. 

    Then four days of class in the desert.  The last day had high wind warnings with Pahrump recording an 82MPH gust.  You can imagine the dust. 

    After the class I had some leftover ammunition so I went to a range and did some shooting.  Total of 1000 rounds thru my S&W M+P full size. 

    The gun was clean and freshly Slipstreamed before I left.  I usually do not get a chance to shoot this much so I took the opportunity and did absolutly no maintainence to the gun the entire week. No cleaning and no oiling.   Not a single hiccup.  It fed, fired and extracted every round without a hint of problem.  The gun still runs as smooth as day one.  The slide is smooth and trigger is 100%.


    In my past experience a few hundred rounds with standard lubes will leave the slide feeling gritty and slow and the trigger will feel like a drive down a dirt road.  I am not sure how this stuff works exactly, but I can tell you that it does work.


    Good job Crusader guys!

    I've run my Edge at ranges in West Texas, in dusty, windy, awful conditions. Keeps running and running and running.

    I think the reason my Garand collected as much grit as it did at LaRue was partly due to the need to use grease, but mostly due to the time it spent sitting on the rack with the action open while waiting for my turn to shoot.

    Open action + grease + blowing dust = not a good combination.

    But even with that, it still ran fine.  Second day I scrounged up a chamber flag that let me get the action mostly closed.

    Ok, ok. FINE!
    I ordered some. We'll see just how well this stuff works on pre-war S&W revolvers. If you make a believer out of me, it will officially be a BIG DEAL.

    I have yet to clean my M&P since the Vegas trip. I went to the range yesterday to practice my Front Sight drills and get a chance to shoot my Kimber .45 a bit. 

    While there I was talking to the counter guy who was doing some maintanence on some of the rental guns.  I was telling him about Slipstream and let him work the action on these guns.  He frankly said that the M&P had no right to be as smooth as it was after this many rounds.  When he ran the slide on the Kimber was when he got the real Slipstream face.

    I got out my grease and lube and let him lube a couple of his trouble child rental guns while we were doing our shooting.  I do not think he cleaned them first, but he said that they were feeling better already.  I will be curious to find out his long term impression the next time I get to the range.

    Another 150 rounds without a failure or additional maintainence and still running like a top.

    My Glock 23 ran through a whole case after having been cleaned and lubed with Slipstream... after that case, it was still slick smooth and reliable.

    Well, it came in two days ago, and I spent the better part of last night sitting in front of the Jesse Stone movies with a dozen or so S&W revolvers on the table (one at a time haha).
    I spent half the morning dry-firing them one at a time for a few hundred cycles each.
    You have a WONDERFUL product there folks. I'm thrilled.

    A quick update on this.  I made it back to the range today and ran into the same counter guy.  I asked him how the slipstream had been working.  He told me that the two balky rental guns he had used it on had just finally been cleaned yesterday.  They had been shot a lot and were completely filthy, but neither had given them any trouble during the previous month and were both still feeling smooth.  He seemed impressed.

    Nah. I shoot kindof a lot, and all my S&Ws have the smooth "narrow target" trigger. Not a bad feel at all.

    Would SS work on the lock mechanism on a cable lock? I've got a H-D branded cable lock with an integrated lock for my Harley, and since the cable stays outside, the lock gets all gummed up and hard to work. I'm thinking SS it, but want to make sure I don't mess something up.

    I found it works great on some parts of Motorcycles.  Levers and such.  Much smoother operation afterwards.  Where it calls for oil down certain cables... Slipstream Styx is the Bombdiggity.   Smoother shifting and braking. 
    I'd love to ST-1 a set of Sprockets. 
    Still don't know about it as Chain Lube though.  That's a different requirement there.
