Seems there is no Napier to be found for sale at the moment.I have read in a few places that 3 in 1 sewing machine type oil is usable . Anybody tried it ?
I think Chris;what we try to achieve is to reduce the frictional coefficient whilst the pellet is travelling thru the barrel.I assume that most of these lubes are wax based and my primary concern is that eventhough they form a barrier between pellet and steel acting as a lubricant,how well do they repel dirt and lead particles which can build up in the barrel over time.
Has anyone seen the Prolong Advert (Drive across America without any oil).Apparantly this is a silicone based product and forms a film one molecule thick between two metals.Has anyone tried this yet?
Falcon , just read the AWg article Sept 2004 see where you get the Jojoba oil trick from Nick Jenkinson. Never ever heard anyone say that you should not drop the lube onto the top of the pelets .I always thought it was a bit strange that some would get a lot i the skirt and others next to nothing . The advise to smear the lube on the side of the tin and then swirl the tin around is something i will have to try .Worried if I try Jojoba oil that it will leave a buildup if it is a "wax like" lube.
