Here are the top 10 gun lubricants/oils as per a scientific dynamic coefficient of friction test using a steel sled and a steel rotating surface polished to 600 grit. This test determines which lubricants or oils reduce friction the most. These are listed in order of performance, best is #1 and so on.
- Hornady One Shot
- Frog Lube
- Rand CLP
- Rem Oil – surprising huh?
- Rem Oil Moistureguard
- BreakFree CLP
- Hoppe’s No 9 Solvent – hard to believe that a plain solvent is lubricating well
- Gun Seal
- WD-40 – amazing this old product is that good!
- Quicken LP
Just a side note that I found interesting…Paste Wax out performed half of the 46 products tested.
