Just got a FNP9 and was reading in the manual that Teflon based lubricants should not be used. Does anybody know why that is? I have always used Rem-oil on my guns

See question #9:

Personally - I use Breakfree CLP on everything. FN actually recommends it in the PS90 manual, and it has a polymer stock. If I ever get an FNP, I don't see that I would change this practice. All but 1 of my guns is a polymer gun, and I've done this for years.

I agree with Ship - I've been using Rem Oil on Glocks for years and nothing's dissolved so far. The FN has been getting BreakFree CLP and it seems to be pretty good stuff.

I did some digging on Militec and there's several letters between Militec and the Army that indicate the Army doesn't rate Militec as meeting PRF-63460.

In addition, Militec isn't a gunshop item around here. Even Natchezss doesn't list it ... and they have pages of lubes in their catalog.

Oddly enough, I'm told that the Browning Pro 9 did not have the "no teflon" warning. I haven't decided what I'm going to do yet.

I use Breakfree CLP on all my guns, including the FNP and put a drop of Rem Oil on each slide rail before reassembling. Hasn't cause any problem and I've cleaned the FNP many times.

What's even more surprising to me is that the manual on page 7 says:

"Do not carry your FNP9 FNP9-M with a round in the chamber." :(





:-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
