What all you want it to say, just "SlipStream Weapon Lube", or just "SlipStream"?  Then probably somwhere else "Hardcore Weapon Lube", as it says on the current package...

ETA: George, by "DONE", do you mean this is already done, or you like the idea?  Sorry, I am a little slow today...

We need to finish up the contest that is currently running but it will be the next upcoming one. I'll get back to you about exactally what text needs to be with the logo. We need to discuss it with our Marketing Director (George).

On another note, Khorne...have at it.

    I assume the crusader logo will already be on the bottle, so no need to put a crusader type thing on it.  Hmmm.... :hmm

    Nope, this is going to be a completely seperate logo. The shield will only be on the return address label. This is completely SlipStream.

    Just shot a few of my lubed guns. I'm gonna start off with this. If the local range calls me with a bill for a .40 hole in their overhead baffles(Not likely, the owner takes out at least one fluorescent tube a month shooting IPSC), I'm sending it to you guys. Slipstream took enough weight off my P226 trigger that I accidentally squeezed a shot off at the top of the recoil. Just my normal finger-on-the-trigger grip and the muzzle rise of one shot was enough to pull the trigger. I'll have to practice more with my new trigger, but this is a good thing.

    The P22 felt great. I'm going to have to treat the magazine follower as well, since it's the only part that isn't smooth.

    The range doesn't allow rifles bigger than .22, so I put my new CMMG .22LR conversion into the AR, sans any Slipstream on the kit. The trigger has been treated, and is much cleaner and smoother than it was originally. Great fun!

    Slipstream took enough weight off my P226 trigger that I accidentally squeezed a shot off at the top of the recoil.

    Can this turn into a safety issue at all?

    No.  The sear doesn't depend on friction to stay engaged, and your finger shouldn't be on the trigger if your not ready to fire.

    Right, but you get that nano lube on all the bearing surfaces in the trigger, and losing some of that friction will take some if the pull off.

    For the record, even though it was an unintended discharge, it was not negligent or unsafe. The gun was pointed downrange, my finger was on the trigger because I intended to fire again (just not at that second).

    Working the trigger reset. A learned skill. With the precieved weight (precieved because the spring tention and parts weight hasn't changed there's just less friction between them) being less It would be difficult to judge the pressure needed to set off the next round.

    Yeah, I just gotta practice with it. I've probably put 500rds through the gun before I miracle lubed it. I didn't even run 50 rds through it on this trip. And with the work schedule lately, by the time I shoot it again, I probably won't have any of the old muscle memory left, so I'll learn to shoot that pistol all over again.

    Gundoctor,

    I am a touch worried about putting the dispenser caps on.  Might it slip out whilst I tighten?

    Seriously, outside the floating chamber on my .22/45 conversion unit, should I use the lube or oil?

    Who is going to work this, I still have one more day off...

    Either will work but why don't you start with the oil. It will creep around and distribute itself to where you want it to go. Just remember to shake up the oil before use. The true lube in there will settle after a while.

    I find mixing it with a flat sided toothpick works real well... and the oil need is kinda thin... which is great for precision, but I like the grease needle better... but it's just a hair too big for being real fine.  Which means I use too much... which is just fine, but the gun will bleed oil a little more.

    Well this is just a preliminary report.  First pistol was a Bersa Thunder .380 CC.  It came with a pretty smooth trigger pull in both double and single action out of the box and it is plated with electroless nickel.  Since it is blow back with a stiff return spring it is hard to tell much difference in slide action but there was an immediate difference.  The oil spread well.  I noticed more difference in the sound more so than the feel. I only field stripped the gun and cleaned it with gun scrubber and canned air.  Much better the CLP stuff I used on it before. Detail stripping is a cast iron mother of a dog on this pistol so I was happy with the way the product spread.

    The second pistol was the beast.  A Llama Minimax 45.  Again just a field strip, oil for internals and the lube for the rails and lugs. Noticed much more difference and a real improvement on the trigger pull and this was with out an overnight set.
    I used a cheap aluminum foil bake pan to hold the gun, parts, and catch the lube.  I've kept the q-tip and a tooth brush for the slip stream alone.   I also wiped the pan for any drips with the q-tip. I used disposable nitrile gloves and I put ID tape on the Lube bottle so I won't get confused on which I'm trying to use.  The needle bottles really helped me from over using the product.  I still think I over did it though. The oil especially will spread the nano if you give it time it seems to me.

    The USPS is still the cheapest way to send this small of a package, but from the time stamp on the package and the time it got here, I think USPS has been shorting the ponies on their oats between Utah and Texas.
