Hope it works better than it smells!

Bought some slide glide and lubed up my Eclipse 10 with it. I read that it works well also watched a video on it. I know of at least one member that uses it and believes in it. It does not smell very nice though I had to rinse my hands with Hoppes #9 so I would smell good again. I will let you know what I think when I do my range report. I am receiving my ammo sometime tomorrow. If it gets here early enough I will post a Range report Thursday evening.

Huh... I bought a tub after reading our brother's recommendation. I didn't notice any smell at all, and I'm usually sensitive to that. Slide-Glide seems ok, and I haven't had any problems with the guns I've used it on. Really, I only use it on my little delicate guns. The big guns like the Glocks, Sig, military rifles, they all get bacon grease, fifth wheel coupler grease, or bear grease...

You'd better stay out of the cold. All that grease will turn a gun into a brick. (I know you're joking)

Nothing beats the smell of Hoppe's #9

OK Tom after reading your post I had to go down to my workshop and smell it. It has a faint petroleum smell similar to motor oil, when I say faint I mean I had to bring it up to my nose before I noticed it. I only use the Slide Glide on my rails and I use a small flux brush to apply it with. For cleaning I use Hoppes #9 and Shooters Choice FP-10 for oiling that I apply using an old Zero Friction 1 oz needle oiler bottle. Now you know all my cleaning/lube secrets, LOL

I don't think I have ever smelled anything when putting it on my slide with a small brush..

Now when I get home tonight I'll have to open it up and put my nose up to it to see what it smells like.

I used my finger as an applicator and I did not care for the smell it left on my hand.. I did not say it smelled like a skunk or something. Besides Hoppes took care of it. I think I will get some applicator tips for a couple of syringes I have leftover from all the medical supplies I have have acquired this past year. I do not know if syringe is the proper term it does not have a need it is just the body and plunger. They were full of saline solution.

I wouldn't recommend using your finger to apply the Slide Glide, get a pack of "Flux Brushes" they're inexpensive and make it easier to apply the grease. I also use them for cleaning in tight places like your rails, the bristles on the ones I've linked are 1/2" long but can be trimmed with a pair of scissors to stiffen then up if needed.

We have been using Slide Glide for several years. Started when we had issues with our Sig Mosquito & a friend recommended we try it. We use it on the rails only, applied sparingly with a tiny paintbrush.
