    They'd probably never seat properly.

    Why not wait until after the rings seat and add it to prevent further wear?  It would be pretty cool to be able to freeze your engine wear characteristics to the 5000 mile level.  I don't know how well SS performs in an engine and whether it will still deposit where it needs to in a pressurized oil bath environment but it seems to me to be worth looking into.

    That sounds like it would be the way to go.

    I think it would be pretty interesting to use in my motorcycle, but I'd have to do something like pull the wet clutch and cartridge oil filter out, run it on a dyno or something for a few hours, then drain the oil (and probably save it because it's barely used and full of valuable slipstream), flush it (don't want stray particles killing the clutch later), then put the filter and clutch back it and refill it with unaugmented oil.

    Didnt Joe mention somewhere the the particles in slipstream are so small they wouldnt be filtered out by an automotive oil filter?

    I squirted some SlipStream on my daughter's braces right after she had her latest adjustment and after an initial bout of blindness and nausea, she now does her chores without having to be reminded, sings show tunes on demand and speaks three languages.

    I'd be scared to get SS anywhere near a woman's jawbone.  They run pretty good as is.  .  . :scrutiny

    If the particles in Slipstream are on the same order of magnitude as the commercial nano-lubricants I am familiar with them they would pass right through modern automotive oil filters. However, some of the additives in the oil might trap the particles.

    I just used the Styx formula to get a neglected marlin 22 up and running. It was locked solid and now it runs.

    About a week ago, I got the final part in, for my AR's adjustable stock.  I put the buffer in, shut the upper, pulled back the charging handle... SCREEEEECH!!!  "Good hell, what's wrong with my gun???"  Nothing...  It's what's not yet right with it.  No Slipstream inside the new buffer tube.  :o

    The old buffer tube had such a build up of the good stuff, that it literally makes no sound.  You hear the spring compress, and that's it.  (I tried this on the old stock: I put the spring and buffer in, and push it down with my finger...  No squeak, no scratching, just a gentle 'sproing.':thumbup1

    Needless to say, there is a big difference!  :D

    As I am new to the SlipStream phenomenon, I have a quick question.

    If I am starting from scratch on my AR, should I plan on grease, oil or both? I am thinking grease for the bolt carrier where it touches inside the upper. Maybe inside the buffer tube? Oil in the smaller areas? Am I on the right track here? Just looking for some guidance.

    Thanks a bunch!! :D

    Just oil is fine... but use a lot at first.  Work it in with lots of hand cycling, then shoot the crap out of your rifle.  Then add more oil and repeat.
    You'll feel the difference soon enough.
    Once the gun is well Slipstreamed, you find you need less and less.

    Year end report:

    I used my super-Slipstreamed Kimber Classic (I was trying to put a few drops into the slide tracks with the slide locked back, and the dripper/plug popped out of the bottle getting loads of Slipstream everywhere.  A somewhat informal, and messy, ST-65 treatment, if you will.) at all my 3-gun matches (except one night match, since it doesn't have night sights) this year. 

    Total of 6 matches.  Including shooting for my CCW quals, and other range trips, over 1000 rounds total, a mix of Freedom Munitions and WWB.  Only cleaning I did was to run a boresnake down the barrel and wipe the feed ramp.

    Not a single hiccup.  Slide still slides smooth as silk, even with all those rounds and no cleaning.  (Yeah, and don't try to sell me the '1911s are sensitive and need constant cleaning' line either.

    It has happened twice to me. Maybe a new bottle design is needed.

    When I took an accidental bath in Slipstream the Space-Time continuum reversed.
    I found myself years in the past near Creation...again.
    It then sped forward back to the present.
    I hate when that happens.

    Slipstreamed my Glock 19 last night. I forgot a Glock could be that slick.

    Mine didn't spill though so no cosmic experiences. :(
