Re: Silver Bullet Gun Oil test..
I noticed several of you guys were wanting to create an environment that rust likes. If you want to put SBGO to the ultimate rust proofing test, then there is an easy way to create extreme rust in 24 hours. Just go to walmart and buy 1 lb of chlorine pool shock powder. Open the powder of Chlorine shock and pour it out onto a sheet of paper or into a plastic bowl. Set the Chlorine shock inside a cabinet along with the piece of steel you are using for the test. Be sure to close the cabinet door to keep the chlorine fumes inside with the metal. If not first treated with oil, the steel will be extremely rusted within 24 hours. After 10 days in the cabinet, the metal will be so rusted that it will be flaking and falling apart. Hoppes gun oil will not even protect the metal from rust for 24 hours. I know that from my own experience from owning a swimming pool equipment repair business for a few years. It would be quite impressive if SBGO could protect it in that kind of environment.
WARNING: DO NOT ALLOW ANY GUN OIL TO COME IN CONTACT WITH THE CHLORINE SHOCK. IT WILL CAUSE A CHEMICAL REACTION OVER MINUTES OR HOURS THAT WILL RESULT IN THE SHOCK EVENTUALLY BURSTING INTO FLAMES; JUST LIKE WHEN YOU POUR BRAKE FLUID ON CHLORINE SHOCK.
