Another simple friction test performed by Modern Spartan Systems maker of Spartan Accuracy oil. The tester uses a simple Timken Bearing Test setup to show how a product effects friction and heat on the bearing. The following products are tested.
- Rem Oil
- Hoppes No 9 Oil
- M-Pro7 Gun Oil LP (old product that has been replaced by LPX)
- FrogLube CLP
- Tetra Gun Lubricant
- Outers Tri Care
- Spartan Accuracy Oil
A failure was determined by heat buildup designated by smoke and damage to the steel bearing. All products except Spartan Accuracy Oil failed within 6 seconds. It’s an interesting test. Check it out.
