Gunbutter Pen Oiler 1/4 fl. oz
This is our new 1/4 oz option of Gun Butter.
Cleaning and Lubricating the 1911
Here is the suggested application for the 1911 pistol. The application techniques may be translated and adjusted according to your need and usage:
Use sparingly, one bottle should last a years constant shooting. Long time storage will not diminish quality or function
Clean entire gun minus grips with a non-lubricated solvent then blow dry or towel wipe dry.
Shake well before each day’s usage
1. Lube (micro-mono layer) lightly the sides of the hammer & sear. Normal (sparingly) usage on the contact points of the sear and hammer hooks, half-cock, and the same for the disconnector. Lightly lube the pin holes in the hammer and sear, pivot under hammer for strut and end of hammer strut – top of mainspring cap.
Do not lube trigger bow channel or inside pistol frame. Do not apply on magazines interior or exterior. If there is a problem have a gunsmith clearance to eliminate sticking.
2. Lightly lube rails inside and out, add to disconnector railway and groove (micro-mono layer) in the slide.
3. Lube upper locking lugs on the slide and barrel.
4. Lube lower locking lug on barrel, pivot pin and inside slide stop hole.
5. Apply a ring around the tip of barrel about 3/8" from muzzle.
6. Once assembled apply a line on the barrel hood front across and a line down center of the hood front to back. Rack a few times and wipe of excess.
Solvents should not necessary for cleanup after proper initial preparation and Gun Butter use.
Gun Butter may be used as a cleaner and will loosen and lift contaminants making wiping or washing a viable solution to complete refreshing. Use a nylon bristle brush AR-15 type works well, tea-shirt material, and Q-tips, etc. Cleaning recommended after each days shooting, if possible. If not lightly reapply to major wear and contact areas for refreshing. During extreme conditions re-apply to barrel tip and hood and a dab in the exposed slide rails at the back of pistol, while in a slide – lock position, about every four stages or so. If extreme cold (30 degrees F. or below) is encountered or expected ensure a micro-mono layer is applied to sliding contact surfaces. Function is assured in extreme cold and freezing conditions; full high performance capabilities will accelerate and be realized instantaneously as weapon fire commences. Rust protection for 100% relative humidity for two years no rust. May be used to rub out existing rust spots.
Please keep out of reach from children. If ingested, call physician, do not induce vomiting.
Cleaning and Lubricating the AR-15
Too much lube is bad; it can slow down the performance capabilities of your weapon.
Too little lube is bad but not what it seems with Gun Butter. If a tint of red is visible you can be assured of placement and readiness. In the field a couple of drops on key areas should refresh performance and confidence of function.
With proper cleaning and Gun Butter applied "crud" will be reduced and help decrease malfunctions.
So, how to do it?
Clean all parts with a non-lubricated solvent such as Break Kleen, Gumout carburetor cleaner, or MP7 cleaner. This will prepare all working parts for Gun Butter.
Blow dry with high pressure air or wipe off all excess and let dry.
Sparingly lubricate, think of a micro layer of lube. Unlike conventional lubes Gun Butter functions best and will last with a mono layer on the weapon’s sliding and contact surfaces (bolt body including the lugs, bolt carrier, cam pin & cam, upper receiver surfaces, and charging handle). The Gun Butter will not dry out. Gun Butter may be used in the chamber and bore. Total protection and performance no longer depends on excessive amounts of lube. The bolt Plunger may be lightly lubed.
No other lubricant can do the job of Gun Butter better and their presence could possibly diminish maximum performance.
Gun Butter will provide in excess of two years rust protection if exposed to 100% relative humidity.
Gun Butter will function in freezing weather and not evaporate or dry out with extreme heat and tends to repel dust and dirt.
Oh, and put a "light amount” of Gun Butter in the buffer spring, buffer & tube. It'll move smoother, quicker, and quieter, and will protect better than molybdenum grease on all surfaces including the aluminum buffer tube with that hardened steel spring grating back & forth with every shot!
Note: If anything other than stellar performance is experienced; ensure the weapon was cleaned properly with a non-lubricated solvent and not over-lubed or mixed in combination with other lubricants, which can diminish maximum cyclic rate and longevity of parts and performance. Total protection no longer depends on excessive amounts of lube.
