    I really really wish the video could communicate the difference in FEEL.  The sound only tells part of the story here.  The FEEL is completely Night and Day.

    Here is a gent from Utah Concealed Carry. He just picked up a sample from me about 1600hrs today.

    Thanks for the Slipstream - I just finished cleaning and lubing my P11. I can tell that it's made a difference without even firing it. I popped in a snap cap and dry fired it a few times. It doesn't even feel like the same gun. I'm going to try and get to the range tomorrow and see how it performs.

    I'll be posting reviews (very positive!!) on UCC and ktog.org.

    Thanks!

    I just picked up my sample of the new Slipstream Weapons Lube from Crusader Smithy. I couldn't wait to try it on my Kel Tec P11. For those of you who've shot the P11, you are familiar with the 47.5 lb trigger pull  Like all faithful Kel Tec owners, I've polished the innards - including the trigger bar and have been looking for a good grease to put on it. I think I've found it.

    As mentioned above, the kit is actually two parts - an oil and a grease, both black. Which leads me to this:

    WARNING: DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT ON THE KITCHEN TABLE THAT SITS ON YOUR WIFE'S NEW HAND KNOTTED PERSIAN RUG. 'Nuff said. 

    Anyway, after cleaning and lubing the gun and mag spring, I reassembled everything and racked the slide a few times. Wow! After a few actions, it was noticeably smoother. I popped in a snap cap and dry fired it a few times. After about the fifth pull, it started to feel like a new gun. I can't wait to get the to range and try it out, but so far, I am totally convinced this is the best gun lube on the market.

    I'll post an update after a trip to the range, but now I'm off to clean and lube my XDm... in the garage... 

    Thanks, Smithy!

    I love getting feedback.

    Soooooooooooooooooooooooo, I had to clean my gun again.  Which means that I went shooting.  Went to Doug's again, and brought my friend with me. I had lubed my .45 with the SlipStreamLube that I purchased from Crusader, as my previous post says. I went to the range and had no problems at all. The .45 shot like a dream. The lube worked great. After shooting I went home and cleaned the .45, since I don't like carrying a dirty gun, and all of the residue from shooting came off really easily. I was quite impressed. I also reapplied a thin coat of the lube, and the gun is as slick as ever. I must say that I am a fan of the Slipstream. Good job Crusader!

    I just got back from the range... I haven't cleaned the gun's yet, but I wanted to report on how the P11 worked with the new Slipstream lube.

    One word: WOW!

    As I mendtioned earlier, the P11 has a very heavy, DAO trigger. I went shooting with my daughter and her boyfriend, who also has a P11. He hasn't polished anything on his, nor used any thing other than standard gun oil, so we could compare trigger pull between the guns (we got them at the same time, so this was a pretty good test.)

    My daughter couldn't even pull the trigger on the un-treated P11, but on mine, she was shooting better groups than I was. I was absolutely amazed at how the trigger and slide worked better and better throughout the range session. Also, I pulled apart my 12 round magazine and used a bit of the oil in there. For the first time ever, I was able to load 12 rounds without a) drawing blood or b) using my mag loader. Incredible.

    No FTFs. No FTEs. No problems what so ever.

    Crudsader Smithy - you need to get the ShamWOW dude to start pitching this stuff - I'm a believer!!

    I'm just glad it worked out for him. After all he's starting out with a Kel-Tec. It would take a miracle to improve the trigger on those things. I guess we found our miracle.

    Alright, so I splurged and bought the combo pack.  I swear my chemical cleaner/lubricant shelf is starting to get crowded, but I'm ready to try slipstream.  I've read that the grease is "activated" with the oil, is that right?  So can you give me an example on where you might use each or both on say, a well-used-but-not-abused Beretta 92 or STI 1911? (Both of which I own coincidentally).  Also, even though my Romy AK build is reliable enough to feed your left foot backwards without causing a mean jam, where might you apply some of this on the innards?  Am I still using CLP for general rust prevention?  Just a few questions from someone that's been using Hoppes #9 and Rem-oil most of his life, and has only recently gotten into designer lubricants (and ya'll can keep your marital aid jokes to yourself)  :devillol

    Thanks for ordering from us. Once you try SlipStream you'll throw away your other oils. No the grease is not activated by the oil. I don't know where you read that but it's not true in any way. The grease is great on slide rails. Oil makes triggers feel like a dream. It would do great things for the Romy's trigger and barrel too. There is no need for CLP for rust prevention. We have that covered.

    I still like Hoppes #9. I keep trying to convince my wife to use it like perfume...just say'n.

    Here's where I got confused...I think I've got it now, this was posted on MadOgre.com "The oil or grease is actually just a carrier agent for the nano lubricant. This is why you need to work the stuff in.... get those little tiny particles all nice and dispersed across the metal."

    I think I need a car freshener that smells like a combination of Hoppes #9, good pipe tobacco and hi-test coffee with Irish cream.  Just like hanging with my grandfather.

    So if i wanted a lube that will stick to the slide rails on my SIG so I don't have to apply a new coat each week, will slipstream grease or oil or both work?
