So I need some guidance.  i.e. step by step instructions.

Where am I supposed to put the lube on my pistol?  Normally, I just soak the whole think but with the needle tip, that's not really possible.

I took off the slide and put a line along the "track".  Anywhere else?  I also put some on the barrel where the casing ejects.  Figure that might move against the slide.  I didn't see any reason to put any on the spring or the guide rod.

I don't see see much difference yet, then again, my pistol was pretty slick to begin with.  Maybe someone can create an instruction video for me.   :hide

    Gundoc already did an instruction video. It's posted around here somewhere.

    The gist of it was, anywhere metal touches metal. He mentioned anything that shines gets lubed.

    Slide Rails, Frame Rails, Spring Guide Rod, Barrel where it locks and unlocks from the slide, the barrel's underlug, and the barrel where it matches up to the front of the slide.  Trigger group and magazine release and safety. 
    Use a little more generous amount and of course, make sure you shake the oil very well.

    I've been shaking the oil for about 6 hours now, ever since I picked it up.  I didn't have any straight cleaner and that's probably why I didn't see much of a difference on the HK.  On the Wilson Combat, I stripped it and cleaned it with Breakfree CLP.  I noticed that 1911 have many more contact points.  Then I struggled to take it apart and put it back together.  Took me 15 min to take apart and then 10 min to put back together.  Since it had the CLP, I don't know if Slipstream made a difference, but I put a lot of it on.

    Then, I put it on a brand spankin' new FNP45 that had no lube at all.  Bone dry.  Gritty.  I stripped that one and applied Slipstream and there was definite difference.  I don't know if it's normal, but as I was putting the slide back on, trying to lock it in, I would tilt the wrong way and the slide would almost slide completely off before I caught it.  Happened about 4-5 times, since I'm not fastest cleaner.  Hence the reason I hate cleaning my guns.

    I had great results using MPro7 to clean, then using Slipstream. I haven't tried any other combinations, but that works really well.

    Problem is, it'll probably be another 2-3 years before I clean my guns next.

    I've found that to be the best way.  MPRO-7 leaves the metal clean and dry. 
    I think Steve's not getting the WOW result because his guns have a lube on the metal already and it's going to take a little time for the Nano Lube to work through the existing oil and find the bare metal.  But it will.  And then the result will be something like "Oh! There it is!"

    Give your 1911 some love from the grease. Mine loved it. It is as they say here in OK "Slicker than pig snot on a pump handle".

    Don't know if I can go through another 25 minutes to take the gun apart.  Plus, I didn't buy the grease.  Only the oil.

    I tried putting a light coating of grease on the rails and oil everywhere else on my sig.  It seriously feels AWESOME!!!

    Got my Slipstream last week and picked up my CZ75 SP01 tactical this week. Going to clean it and use the Slipstream before I go to the range this weekend.
    From what I have read I think it will be replacing my Militec as my choice of lubes.

    It's like dividing by zero.

    I got another question for our Slipstream geniuses.

    How does it work between metal and plastic. I got an idea about some Slipstream Experimentation, but it involves metal-on-plastic friction, not metal-to-metal.

    It's amazing how you get better better with Slipstream.
    Metal on Plastic.  It works really well.  Which is why the Metal Springs on a Poly Guide Rod lose the squeaks instantly when you hit it with Slipstream.  The Nano Lube actually embeds easier on the polymer, creating a very smooth surface very quickly.

    I hit my pump shotgun with this stuff the other day...I was amazed.
    I've used it on other stuff but that shotgun went from "I thought this was how a shotgun feels" to "Wow...why didn't I do this before?"  My pal tried it on his old Western Field pump, same result.
