Plus oneYup agreed I let some sit in the safe for longer than I would like and before a range trip I lock the slide back and use the lucas needle tip on the inside of rails , on barrel and close it and put some on the barrel hood and cycle it a few times before shooting it 👍
I try and shoot weekly and clean after I shoot. If I don’t I relube my night stand gun once a week. However my nightstand gun is my carry gun from that day. If it was just setting there not being carried you could go a lot longer. I pulled one out of the safe that was lubed with universal hadn’t been carried in probably close to 3 months and was still good to go.Rookie question, but how often are you re-lubing your carry/home defense gun if it's carried/sits more than it get's shot?
awesome trick! what grease do you useI picked up a tip from a leading builder and that's to use grease cut with a few drops of oil. I'm delighted with the results. Even after a few months in the safe the gun is ready to be fired.
The grease from WC is excellent. I use it on the rails...After this I am seriously considering going to grease for a lube. Like the Lubriplate 130-A I use on my M1A.
No WML on your “bed stand” gun?It was a nice day today and took out my fairly new Dan Wesson Vigil Commander out to my back yard range. After about 80 rounds I had a failure to return to battery. Slide was frozen to the frame. Back to the garage and after a couple of gentle taps with a nylon headed hammer the slide came off. There was some slight galling on the slide to frame fit (rails). A few swipes with a file removed some small burrs. No damage, mechanically or visually, done to the gun. This gun was very tight on the slide to frame fit and the barrel bushing fit.when I first got it and after 1K rounds is still tight.
This gun had been setting on a bed stand for many months and when I got the slide off I wasn't happy with the lube that was on it. (FP-10).
Amazing that DW is still having issues with this
Great to hear it cane apart rather easily Dave
What was the mixture? I'm interested. What were the temps?I use an oil/grease mixture on my rifle. Tried it on my custom TLE/RL II 10mm. Worked great until the Temps got cold. The cold grease got very stiff and it caused 2 FTF. I'll stick to oil and do it often from now on.
