    Any Super X guys have advise on how to lube the action on a Super x? Just got one and want to do it right.
    Thanks for feedback

    Headhunter, Use oil where you have metal to metal contact and moving parts on your Super X-1.

    Hit 'em hard,

    More important than lubing is to become familiar with the buffer. Stu Wright is a good person for service.

    Use Break Free, coat gas piston and mag tube, also inside action. Clean just by wiping. Update your springs and buffer.

    Enjoy!!

    Tri-Flow works great too.

    If you let Tri-flow sit (long time) it hardens like epoxy.....Break Free CLP liquid won't....it is THE BEST for semiautos....

    Tri-Flow will harden like epoxy? Is Break Free a superior lubricant to motor oil? Can anyone cite specific data comparing the lubricity of WD-40 to 3 in 1 oil? It is not difficult to state a personal opinion but it can be difficult to support that opinion with facts.

    My opinion: Any oil will work well as long as it remains clean. The very best oil does a poor job protecting the gun if the oil is dirty.
