The MLP Solid Film Lubricant Pen from Birchwood Casey Keeps Firearms Running During the Toughest Conditions
The AR-15, America’s rifle, Black Gun, call it what you want, but it is a ton of fun to shoot, hard to beat for hunting and a staple for self-defense. The AR-15 also has its share of moving parts that can be problematic if not cleaned or lubed properly. I cringe on the range when I hear a new shooter declare he has bought a new AR and thinks it is a POS gun. Normally, all it takes is a quick lesson in cleaning and maintenance to get the gun running like a well-oiled machine. In fact, the majority of the time that is the problem—shooters trying to run a dry gun.
Gunsmiths charge hundreds of dollars to coat high-wear parts with long lasting lubricants. The performance difference is certainly worth the price. However, what if you could get the performance advantage for a fraction of the price? And by a fraction, I mean lees than the price of a movie ticket. Birchwood Casey’s MLP Solid Lubricant Pen meets Mil-Spec requirements and provides a low-friction lubricant coating for enhanced performance under extreme or casual conditions.
MLP Solid Film Lubricant is a semi-permanent, lacquer-like coating containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments. The formula creates a tough, low-friction coating that prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting.
Once applied, MLP Solid Film Lubricant is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils and degreasers. MLP Solid Film Lubricant operates best at temperatures ranging from -320° to +300° degrees F so unless you are headed to deep space or the sun, you are in the sweet spot.
