You're most welcome Capp! But the thanks is all yours!
I also thank you cappaletti for sharing your experiment! As stated, a person can research various concerns for days, but actual "field testing" cannot be beat.
Eezox is what I use (thanks again tig) but have not given my guns the "TEST"......Haven't dropped one overboard yet. Hmmmm...guess if I ever do, I'll just row away embarrassed.
I would be in after it! Well after all the battle rattle was taken off!
Gud mornin' all! Day 20 of the test was yesterday..I'm happy to report that Break Free & Quick Release are both holding their own..final day of the test is 10/19/10 and will post results at that time...
Like a good Martini - Shaken not Stirred I hope !
Well here it is! Sorry I'm a coupla days late..the test results are in..Break Free and Quick Release both passed with flying colors but it's still my PERSONAL belief that Eezox is the best of the 3 oils tested even though all 3 held up to the 2nd test..anyhow, that's it for the testing process...maybe we all learned something here..I know I did.......
Thanks Capp!! Interesting information to say the least. As Ben mentioned, and I have to agree, being required to shake a product before use, increases the possibility of product failure. I would hate to forget that step and find out months later when the gun can out of storage. I've used Break Free many times in the past and am pleased to hear that I was using a decent product back then! I continue to be beyond satisfied with the Eezox product and until they come out with their second generation formulation, I'll be sticking with their original!
I have found one other person here who has heard of Eezox..he works in one of the local gun shops and I happened to be in there the other day and asked him. So at least there's one other guy around here that's heard of it...as far as tests are concerned I'm done for a while..it was all interesting and I think we all learned something, I know I did...but I'm with u Tig, I'll stick with Eezox...
I wish Eezox would spend some time marketing to the smaller gun shops and perhaps the big box stores. In a time when everyone is losing market share or barely hanging on to what they have, I would be knocking down doors if I had a product as good as this stuff.
I like CLP
Like anything else..personal preference. I've used it for years with no complaints...
Critical, have you ever tried Eezox? I used CLP along with everything else that the snake oil salesmen came up with. When I was introduced to this stuff, I found it hard to believe that something could work so good at everything! It's good for so much more than your run of the mill stuff. You owe it to yourself to try it. You won't go back!
When your gun has to perform reliably, the lubricant you use is soooo important. Not to thick, not to thin, good wear and corrosion protection, and does not go bad while the gun is sitting idle. Make sure you test it out and get experience with your chosen brand like Cap does.
Like I said b-4..have used all grades of lubricants over the years but gotta agree with Tig 100%..I'm sold on Eezox and am working to get the word out about it!
I am another convert to Eesox. Tig told me about it about a year ago. I make sure I alweays have a supply on hand. Company is great to deal with on mail orders too. Fast and really not bad on pricing. I have a Springfield 1861 replica from Euroarms. It has a white (steel) barrel which everyone knows will rust very easily if not maintained regularly -whether fired or not. I wipe it with Eesox and in humid environments it stays great. Not to mention using Eesox i n the field and for normal cleaning. A good test is use the brand of your choice for cleaning and then redo with Eesox.
I think we should forward this information to Eezox! Maybe we could get them to provide a "Gundirectory" discount!! I think we've certainly provided them with some excellent firsthand experience and recommendations!! This stuff is great, but we knew that a long time ago!
I checked the Eezox website and it shows a company in Warren, Ohio as the source (Warren Custom Outdoor). It also states that they have many different lubricants, all Synthetic. Most of the lubricants you see in the sotres are all Mineral Based. I know from the automotive world, synthetics give you much better cold cranking performance and they protect much better by staying in solution and adhering to the metal surfaces much better than mineral based oils.
They are about 3 hours from where I live. If this is the right place, I need to go Christmas shopping.
PS: I might also give them a call about their business plans and distribution network.
Tig..great idea! I posted some remarks at barrelandblade about Kroil and Eezox just yesterday but if they knew about the following and loyal users maybe they wud get off their duff and start some kind of marketing campaign!
JusrBen..let us know what happens on ur 'venture' to Warren....
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN!!!! Just found this on another site......go to www.frfrogspad.com/homemade.htm...I did and I was VERY pleasantly surprised !!! CHECK IT OUT !
Thanks for the link Cap, very cool stuff.
