What is the difference between EWL and the regular Gun Lube?
The EWL has a higher wear property. The regular gun lubricant passed at 750 lbs. on the Falex Pin & V-Block Test while the EWL passed at 4500 lbs. This means that the EWL will endure more wear and last 4 to 5 times longer.

With the regular Gun Lube you can shoot 200-500 rounds with an AR, pull the bolt out and wipe it clean. With EWL you can shoot 2000 rounds with an AR, pull the bolt out and wipe it clean.

What is the red seal or plug in my lubricant bottle?
The red seal is in the lubricant bottles is what seals the cap and the bottle together. It is to prevent lubricant from leaking out if the bottle lays on its side. Do not remove this seal. Simply remove the cap, poke a hole in the seal and screw the cap back on. If the twist top is fully closed and the red seal is intact lubricant will not leak out.
