    Anyone use the product "Fluid Film" for general cleaning and rust protection on their Guns ? I did a search on TS But didn't find much. Had a few local guys tell me they liked it so I got a can. $10 at the John Deere dealer.

    Every one of my stored guns has had FF applied to the barrels inside and out and to the outside surface of other metal parts.

    If it is good enough for the Navy, it's good enough for me.

    Hi,
    Fluid film is a great rust protect-ant but if left thick it dries very hard, like cement. Not really a lubricant, more of a waxy coating for tools, machinery, etc.

    Cal- I agree with you. It is great for long term storage but a very poor, at best, gun lubricant.

    Gun Dog- You asked about using it for gun cleaning. It will work very well. Put some on your gun and after a lot of scrubbing with a solvent you will have removed all of the Fluid Film and the gun will be clean.

    Thanks guys. I did notice it is a little Thick. Never would have thought it would dry up though. I guess by "general cleaning" I meant wiping a gun down after each use. I now realize it may be to Thick for even that. I think I'll just apply it to the sleepers and use something else for the everyday shooters.
