Lube For Your Magazine
Earlier this month I was at the 2016 FN 3Gun Championship match at Peace Maker National Training Center. I have staffed this match for five years. This year, Lucas Oil was one of the largest sponsors for the match. I will be honest, I have not heard of Lucas Outdoor Products before. As staff we have our own sponsored staff dinner with a slew of prizes just for staff. One of the items that many of us got was a 2 fl. oz bottle of Lucas Oil Slick Mist Speed wax.
I was a little confused as to why this was included in the staff prizes. In fact at the competitor awards dinner Lucas Oil were giving away samples of their products and the Slick Mist Speed Wax was given out to the competitors. I spoke with their representative during the match and she said that the Slick Mist Speed Wax works as a polymer based lubricant that does not attract dust or particles. Most shooters use the Slick Mist Speed Wax to lubricate their pistol magazines. One friend said he uses it in his 2011 magazines.
You simply dissassemble your magazine and clean the inside of the magazine tube body. Then you spray the Slick Mist Speed Wax inside the magazine tube and wipe it dry with a rag. Then reassemble your magazine and load it up. You will notice smoother movement of the follower as well as the cartridges do not drag against the mag tube as much.
You can find Slick Mist Speed Wax online or go to lucasoil.com.
