EEZOX?
« on: February 15, 2012, 06:30:10 PM »
The Seecamp forum guys (and Larry Seecamp) strongly recommend the use of Eezox to clean, lubricate and protect their pistols.  It has apparently been used by the military in the middle east, and is a dry lubricant that doesn't collect dust and grit.  Any thoughts/experience with use on this forum?

Yep!  That's what I use; switched from Ballistol.  The Eezox is really some good stuff.  The Ballistol is good too, just like the smell better of the Eezox.  My wife doesn't complain now, when I clean the guns.    :)

Haven't tried the Frog Lube yet, but I'm sure it's really good, as well.

I have used it for many years on my guns....great on tools also....I still use a small amount of Wislon grease on the rails of my 1911's if I'm shooting 200 rounds or more between cleanings.....I always tell my friends to try Eezox and if they can honestly tell me it is not the best product they have used I will buy all they have left...........I have no connection to Eezox

I, too, use the Wilson lube on my 1911's, and have used it on the rails of the R9.  Have just received 3 cans of the Eezox, but haven't used it yet.  Time to try.  Thanks for the input.

If you don't like it I'll buy it from you.

How does Eezox compare to Gun Butter?

That's strange, I like the smell.

Nothing like opening the box of a new Seecamp and getting a big whiff of EEZOX!

I personally wouldn't use EEZOX.

It has chlorinated esters in it, and chlorinated esters - even tiny amounts can cause Chloride Stress Corrosion Cracking, especially in stainless steel.

EEZOX claims that the amout of chlorinated ester in their cleaning solution is so low that it won't negatively affect the metal in guns, but IMO, there are enough alternative cleaners and lubes out there that are chlorine free that I'd much rather use those.

Good point Count...I didn't know that when I bought mine.  See Thor's thread on lubrication, just reposted for some excellent info on lubricants.
