Our friends over at Patrol Tactical have put together a very thorough video on how to lubricate a Glock Gen 4 pistol. And while they have said that they intend to make a video pertaining to the cleaning of the Glock as well, we know that there is an extremely pressing issue in regard to cleaning this type of weapon. “Are your products safe to use on polymer frames?”Continue reading →

Here is a prime example of why I love the slip 2000 and proof it works. This picture is a before and after cleaning on a silencer baffle. I have over 500 rounds of 22lr fired thru this suppressor and last night I had to pound the baffles out with a hammer and I couldn’t scrape the carbon off with a knife, so I soaked it over night in the carbon killer, and the carbon build up pretty much wipes off making the baffle look brand new again. The picture doesn’t even do any justice, but it made the baffle a shinny stainless again. Never thought it was possible.
We train no matter what the weather conditions are, and at one particularly snowy handgun course the hazards of poor maintenance became apparent to some of our students. The temps had dropped below freezing and some of the liquid lubes and grease lubes began to stop up the guns.
After a successful year of testing, evaluations, and usage, the US Marine Corps has expanded their contract with Slip 2000. They have recently installed 6 additional Slip 2000 Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems and will be adding 6 more in the next 30 days, with more to come. The sole source contract specifies that only Slip 2000 Equipment, Slip 2000 Lubricants and Slip 2000 Cleaners can be used.
The heated dual tank Ultrasonic Cleaning System allows multiple guns to be cleaned and lubricated quickly. One tank uses ultrasonic technology to clean a group of guns while the other tank simultaneously provides a lubricant and corrosion treatment to another group.
Just wanted to send a quick update. Our rotation is coming to an end. Thanks to the SLIP products and regular maintenance we have not experienced a weapons malfunction. We really appreciate your help and support. Attached is a photo of some of our unit taken in front of our FOB. The green flag is our unit flag – 1/69 Infantry.
To help add to this lubrication test, I personally built the SLR15 Rifles for this study and they were built not within our norm, as I built the rifles totally lubricant free and there was no break in or stress testing. The barrels had been antiseized upon mounting, but all parts were sent out completely dry and free from all oils, grease and lubricants. We usually do a lubrication, break in of 100rds and destressing, then clean and relubricate all parts before sending rifles out, Continue reading →
Pat Rogers’ Side by Side Review of Slip 2000 EWL and CLP
About 18 Months ago Greg Conner (Slip 2000) asked me to do a side by side of EWL with CLP. Greg Sullivan (Defensive Edge) provided two of his SLR15 carbines so we would have a standard by which to compare the lubes.
We started out with bone dry new guns then lubricated them properly. We handed the guns out to students at class and ran them through 4 classes. Continue reading →
