Has Slipstream Styx been discontinued? I'm almost out and can't find it anywhere.

    It has. Just not enough buyers to keep it afloat.

    It is what it is. Kind of a shame. It was a great product. I may bring it back sometime. I still have almost 1000 labels.

    I'm sure it's not enough, but if you'd bring it back, I'd buy 10 right away. I give a bottle to every person I get into shooting. I guess I'll have to go back to the regular stuff.
    Thanks,

    That's so strange. While I don't use it, others that I've spoken with have said it takes less shaking and is an overall better, superior product to the original stuff.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    I'll look into that. If it's possible I'll take you up on that.

    It really was superior. I think the price was a bit high for some but that stuff is damn expensive to make.

    I would try to find the money to buy 10 bottles.  Not saying that I could, but I would try.  I am almost out and it is my preferred lube as I am in a marine environment..

    I'll say I preferred Styx to the regular as well, that said I haven't had to buy any in years since I've had plenty;) You made too good of an oil Joe that's the problem;)

    That said put me in the like the Styx as well even if it's more expensive, sometime in the next while I've gotta buy another bottle of either that or original.

    If Styx availability is going to be iffy, then I will buy a lifetime supply each time I can.  I get the whole cost to make vs cost to sell, and amount of money tied up until it does sell.  But it sure seems like every product I like gets discontinued before I can stock up.
