Re: What solvent, lubricant, do you use the most of?
I have not tried them all but i put a pretty good dent in the pile!
As of last month I have cleaned inside and wiped down every weapon I own with Weapon Shield. I cannot comment on long term performance but so far I am impressed with it's lubrication. "They" say once used in the bore fouling and powder residue is easier to clean. I did notice when cleaning bores that were already "cleaned" with other products that I got some more coloration on the patches.
I use(ed) a lot of different products with BreakFree CLP getting the majority of use. I did use V-80 Inhibitor with VCI, Remoil with VCI, Hoppes #9, Birchwood Casey Sheath, Outers Barrel Blaster, and Breakfree Powder Blaster.
With regular maintenance I never had a problem with any of those products but I did have 2 cylinders almost lock up on revolvers when some Remoil mixed with the factory grease inside the cylinder rod and frame. It turned to a gummy mess. In my safe I have a foam plug saturated with the Inhibitor V-80 and the claim is that it emits a vapor shield that coats everything and repels rust/moisture. It has worked really well so far as those guns are the ones that get my least attention.
Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.
