Hey, I was in my favorite gun store today and saw a can of S&W Dry Lube. Says it lubes with no oily residue....So, I bought a can of it just to check it out.

I haven't used it yet other than spraying a little on the bench to see what it was. It almost seemed like an alcohol base of some sort, it did dry and leave no oily residue.

Anyone use this? Does it really lubricate as well as an oil base lube?

I have used Break Free for more years than I have fingers to count on and never had any issues with it, other than getting a little carried away with it leaves everything oily.

The only thing I would look out for is that I understand graphite and aluminum don't mix. I guess the graphite corrodes or breaks down the aluminum. Check for graphite in the ingredients.

Ive used that type of stuff but I dont know what it was called. Ive mainly always used the dry Graphite to stop the jams in .22's it keeps the gunky build up from sticking and its great for the AR-15 .22 kits


As for other guns Ive never tryed it..

I have never tried it. Interesting though. I use miltec on everything as it really dose seem to make the weapon last longer.

I've been using dry lube (any brand) for my guns for seven years now because I live in a desert area and it helps by not attracting sand and dust particles compared to a wet lube.

Another good lube that I just have tried recently is SLiP 2000 which is also great in sandy and dusty conditions.

I've been using Break-Free for 20+ years and it's a great lube but I think that SLiP 2000 is better.
