The Best Gun Oil 2016 – Friction Reduction

I am testing gun oils for friction reduction via an incline plane/sled setup. It’s a simple setup involving a 24″ long by 4″ wide 6061 T6 bar that has been filed true and polished to 400 grit. The sled is 1″ thick by 2″ wide and 4″ in length of the same material.

You can see/read more at this link….Friction Test Setup Post.
