    Has anyone tried the Lucas Oil Red N Tacky grease for hinge pins and the like? The published info looks good and it is only $5-$6 a tube.

    I like and it seems to work as good as the Amsoil synthetic. The neighbor turned me onto Shell grease that does not breakdown in the heat (oil running out of the gun). He runs a excavatig company, so I trust he knows his grease.

    I've used the Lucas for a few years. Works well for me.

    All you need is a small amount.

    Grease is a must in my opinion, especially if you shoot a BT 99.

    The Lucas Red N Tacky is what I used for general lube on action bars, pivot pins, pistol slides etc. I use STP for things like sears, locking bolts and high pressure / wear parts. Rem Oil or Break Free works good on non high pressure things like triggers mechanisms and semiauto moving parts. Most stuff will probably do a good job, just keep it clean.

    I happened to clean one of my 870's the other day and instead of STOS I put a little Red N Tacky on the action bars and also a little between the bolt and bolt carrier, in the same manner I would normally do with STOS, and boy o boy the gun sure seemed to "shuck" and lot smoother and quicker than it does/did when greased with the STOS

    With the suggestions here I bought a tube of this stuff. What are some of the ways you guys make it more portable instead of hauling around a grease gun tube. I was thinking of maybe putting some into a medicine syringe so it can be accurately applied.

    If you, or if you know anyone who, refill their inkjet ink cartridges, try to get one of the empty syringes after they are done with it. The syringe will hold a bit more, about 9 cc. or so, of contents, the "needle" which is a bit bigger than most medical needles and is blunt tipped, should probably work quite well. The tip screws on and off the syringe body and it has a carrier/protector. Plus with the larger diameter hole in the needle, the flow would be easier. You can also use it without the tip to feed directly from the syringe through a larger hole.

    Another choice would be the injectors used to inject meat.

    Or if you happen to have one of those little tubs that Briley puts their choke tube lube in, you could put some in that after it is empty. Or an empty STOS can

    My local Ace Hardware sells empty white syringes like the ones Shooters Choice grease comes in. They are .59 cents each and work well.

    I like the idea of the syringes. I am going to try a syringe that you get from your local pharmacy for children's medicine. But I do like the idea of a syringe that has a tube for application.

    Check with your dentest for a large syringe , it's plastic and holds a lot of grease. They use it to irrigate gums after pulling teeth.

    I use the Sta Plex High Pressure Red Grease myself. A little goes a long way.
    I have enough for a lifetime for six bucks or so.

    Try a farm supply store for large plastic tipped syringes.
    Good bets are Farm & Fleet, Farm & Home, Farm King, Ag Supply, etc.

    I did not know that ACE Hardware might have those STOS style syringes, 3357. I will check it out. Thanks.
