I have always liked M-Pro7 products and their gun oil is excellent. Here is my gun oil wear test to prove how well M-Pro7 Gun Oil LPX reduces wear and friction.
Here is my gun oil wear test setup….1x4x6″ block of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, 0.5×24″x4″ 6061-T6 aluminum alloy bar. The surfaces are filed true and finished with 400 grit sandpaper. The small block is placed on top of the 24″ bar and slid back and forth like a gun action. Oil is applied to both contact surfaces to measure any wear reduction as compared to bare metal or other gun oils. I chose the 6061-T6 alloy because it’s softer than steel and will display wear much faster. I perform 75 cycles after the gun oil is applied and then clean both surfaces to view any wear or scratching, galling, etc.
Let’s get started….M-Pro7 Gun Oil LPX application.
I apply several drops of the LPX on the 24″ bar/block and then used several clean patches to spread it evenly and wipe off the excess. I slid the block or sled back and forth 75 times to simulate a gun action. Now let’s see the results…
You can see the dark areas where tiny metal particles were worn off and combined with the gun oil. Now let’s clean the surfaces and look at them closer.
The small dark shiny areas are were the wear occurred. It’s very slight with no scratches or galling. Let’s look at the 24″ bar now.
…hardly any wear here. The 24″ bar looks untouched.
Conclusion: M-Pro7 Gun Oil LPX is a very good lubricant and prevented a lot of wear. I would recommend M-Pro7 Gun Oil LPX and have used it for several years.
