Thanks.  I'm looking forward to using it on my duty P2000 and a LNIB Speed Six that one of my colleagues wants to sell to me.

    So I ordered some from the website this morning. We'll see what it can do on my Dan Wessons.
    I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

    I noticed that the Gundoctor posted a couple of my reviews from UCC, and I thought I would add another one from the same site. 

    SOOOOOOOOOOOO...... I was bored, so what did I do? I followed the video on Crusaders Gun Doc webby site, found here. There are 4 vids to watch. Anyway, I noticed that he used more Slipstream grease that I had used. I have only used a very very thin layer of the grease on everything, with a hint of oil in the places that I couldn't get the grease. I put more grease on where the video shows, still not a lot of grease though, and also used more oil. I put grease on the slide rails, and oil on the frame rails as the video says. I thought that the gun was slick before, but HOLY MAGNOLIA. It's a LOT more slick now. Just what the Gun Doctor ordered.
    Here are the videos I watched.  I suggest watching them and following what the Gundoctor does.  This worked amazingly well on the SW1911.

    Anybody sick of my reviews? :vomit Well not me, so here we go.  I have a SIG P250, I have Slipstreamed it before, but very very lightly, and used very little of the oil.  It was good the first time, but I followed Crusader Smithy's video and used more oil, and a little more grease.  The P250 is very easy to take apart, and the entire inside of the gun comes out so you get access to the trigger assembly, and all the other goodies.  So I used the grease on the slide and slide rails, oil on the frame rails and trigger assembly.  This may not be a surprise, but it has been improved significantly.  The slide is much more smooth and quiet.  The trigger is incredibly smooth.  It was the best DAO trigger I had shot, before the Slipstream.  Now it's fantastic.

    different container
    « Reply #286 on: October 17, 2010, 03:00:45 pm »
    Not sure if this has come up or not... :hmm

    While the new container holds more oil (good), it also is pretty messy and leaks slipstream all over. (not good)  It lacks any sort of precision application ability.

    I bought some needle nose bottles that work for another gun oil I have but wanted to see if anyone else has attempted something similar.  Is this stuff too think to go through a needle nose applicator? 

    In theory, it should be able to squeeze through a tiny opening if it is advertised as being able to creep into tiny cracks and crevices of your firearm.

    Thanks.

    I've used needle nose bottles before.  Worked very well.  As to the application with the new bottles. I don't know.  :shrug  I'll see what I can find out.

    I looked high and low for a good needle tip replacement that would allow us to increase the volume of the bottles. The only other tip option was a controlled dropper that wouldn't stay in place long enough to ship it. One good squeeze and the tip shoots off. That just doesn't work for me. The new bottles were the best option I could find. If you have a suggestion I'm all ears.

    Thanks for bringing this up.

    I bought a 3-pack of needle tip squeeze bottles from Brownells primarily to transfer Slipstream to.  I'll report back how these bottles work.  The lube itself is fantastic.  I shoot my guns and I like to run them 'wet'.  Steel on steel applications are where I've really seen the stuff shine.  Really reduces the pre-existing friction drastically...

    I've had another brand of lube leak during shipment to my house and it soaked up the cardboard box carrying it.

    So, +1 for Slipstream for not doing that...

    This new order of bottles I did with a different tip. Same bottle so the labels still fit....very important...this time they have a controlled dropper. Should be much cleaner and only release what you want. The test bottle worked well.

    I will be ordering your lube kit tomorrow.  I have 2 new SA 1911's that I'd like to get them started on the right track.  Only been thru 4 pages of this thread.  Will check it out more tomorrow.  Late and I'm tired of reading right now.  Thanks for all you do.  


    Edited:  GREAT THREAD.  Thank you for the videos.  Just placed my order.

    I got an e-mail from Joseph already saying its ready to go Monday. 

    Is there a minimum number of rounds needed before I can send you these SA 1911's for your Permanent Pistol Treatment?  Looking at your web-site this just looks to easy to ship to you for service. 

    AND, It's been in the back of my big head about putting an AR in my arsenal.  I think putting this project in your hands is the way to go.  Recently getting these 3 pistols and committing myself to Luke on some rigs leaves me with about springtime as the soonest I can commit myself.  Definately looking forward to it though. :dance

    No we can do the treatment at any time. In fact you should shoot the crap out of it after the treatment so you might as well break them in at that time.

    I'd be thrilled to build you an AR. Just let me know when you're ready and we can discuss what you need/want and go from there.

    Quick question... the oil or the grease for a lever action?
    I just got a Marlin 1895STP and I want to start it off properly.
    also, I generally dont like the "feel" of the workings of stainless guns.
    They always feel like they have drag.

    Jim

    Stainless is so much harder than carbon steel that it takes much longer to break them in. So yeah, a lot of drag for too long. Honestly, if you can get into the internals, a combination of both works really well. Otherwise it's usually best to default to the oil. Hope that helps.

    Got my order today.  Do you know how to go about getting one of those needle dispensers?  Or can I use the bottle just the way it is?  I would love to have a window decaL/sticker of Crusader Weaponry for my truck if one's available. :clap
