    I know the subject of gun lubrication has been beat almost to death on this site – but I always like see what other people think on the subject. I recently tried some Slick 50 formulated for high mileage engines as a lube on my Perazzi. It seemed to work very, very well – stayed put and seemed to be a very “slick” lube. Have any of you tried Slick 50, especially Slick 50 for high mileage engines (it appears to be a little thicker than regular Slick 50) as a lube on your break open trap gun? And, opinions please….

    I'd use chain saw chain/bar oil. It's just as sticky and a lot less expensive! Slick 50 was shown in court to be no better than the oil it was mixed with so why pay a lot of money for nothing?

    Oil, grease, whatever.

    As long as you wipe it off and re-lube often.

    With all of the good to great gun lube products on the market today why would anyone experiment with engine lubricants on a gun and vise versa ..? Do people try scouring powder to shine up their teeth and tooth past to clean the kitchen sink also ..? I use gun lube where needed and engine lube where it made to go ... Clenzoil is good for everything though ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Slick 50 makes a spray can lube called One Lube, 12 oz. for $1.99 at Menards this last weekend. It really works if you fix a door knob in the kitchen and then walk past the area later in your sock feet - Wheeeeee! For the tree huggers, they used to market it in a pump bottle. Probably at least as good as Triflo about the same viscosity.

    I'm with Halfmile. I have been using STP for years with good results. Keep a small bottle and some Q-tips to put it on with in my rangebag always. I've used the One Lube mentioned above before, but STP is better IMO. JD

    STOS as well, comes with an applicator, similar to a hypodermic needle.

    What I would like to know, is what to use in very cold weather duck hunting. My 303A beretta has function troubles, loading the second shell. Ben

    Clean your guns with mineral spirits, blow dry and lube with a good clean light weight engine oil. Worked in the service for tank weapons and side arms as well as being recommended by Perazzi. Post-2

    I've had really good performance from Marvel Mystery Oil on my semi-auto hand guns as well. I sticks to the slide rails better than gun oil and smells good too. I can't think of any good reason it would not work well for shotguns.
