    Glock is probably the worst gun to test it out on IMO. I run mine dry and they dont rust. No need to waste SBGO on one lol.

    The XD9 requires lube though and protection. SBGO works real good on that one.

    Try it on a hunting gun that will be used for 3 days straight in the rain in the fields and woods. Thats where it really shines.

    Results of extreme test #1
    These are forged steel couplings that were sanded down to bare metal.
    Oil was appiled to all equally, and all were subject to spraying with water and drying out between sprays. Once a day during the week, and twice on weekends. The time frame was 14 days.

    H=Hoppes
    S=SGBO
    C=CLP (Breakfree)
    R=Remoil

    The multi pics are the worst side and best side.
    The singles are all the best side.
    Please forgive my camera skills.

    Well, that didn't work.
    I get this message:

    Any ideas? Never had this happen before.:confused:

    I got the .308 out and run the cast SBGO boolits thru. same story as the CZ 9mm test, good accuracy and no leading. SBGO makes a good bullet lube for both smokeless rifle and pistol loads with cast bullets.

    It's clear to me that Hoppes is at the bottom, followed closely by the Remoil. The results from the SBGO and the CLP really make me scratch my head. Why the vast difference on the better side?

    I'll perform this one again to get a better feel.

    Thanks to JLA for the barrel parts. I've a business partner that will sandblast them for free. That will be the next challenge. Once that one is finished, the couplings will go at it again (after cleaning of course).

    3 attempts should give a pretty accurate gauge of the ability to protect in a harsh environment.

    Please keep in mind that this test is based on the exposure to the elements only. Those elements being my living room. It in no way reflects the various oils abilities in a mechanical application, or weather extremes.
