Gun Lubricant Test – Timken Bearing Test

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  • M-Pro7 Gun Oil LP (old product that has been replaced by LPX)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.
