I have always wanted to have the best gear and products for my weapons. Why? Because my family’s lives may depend on that weapon one day and I want it to function flawlessly. No, I might not perform “flawlessly” as the operator, but time will tell. What I want to do is reduce the probability of my equipment/gear failing. And that is why I am telling you about Slip 2000 EWL.
I can’t say I invented it or discovered it. I did however watch a video referencing it on the Internet so it must be true 🙂
The video showed an old crusty military veteran talking about M4’s and AR-15’s. He was talking about it is more important to keep your AR/M4 “wet” than clean. Yup, he showed his dirty, nasty bolt carrier group. And I am telling you it was dirty. But he simply would wipe it off, lube it with Slip 2000 EWL and it would run out just fine.
I put it to the test and it worked the same for me. I was especially concerned about it having a problem here in the desert southwest with all of our sand. But it was no problem whatsoever. Turns out that Slip 2000 EWL is made from synthetic liquid lubricant not petroleum products, so it doesn’t attract or hold dirt and sand.
I love the stuff! It works great and had improved the reliability of my semi-auto weapons.
From their website –
Slip 2000 EWL has incorporated advanced technology additives to enhance film strength and anti-wear properties. Penetrating the pores and bonding its self to the surface of the metal through physical absorption reducing surface tension thereby reducing friction between moving parts and minimizing wear and the build-up of wear related debris.
Slip 2000 EWL will not dry out or attract dust or dirt particles like petroleum products. Even when surface is wiped dry to the touch Slip 2000 EWL is still present and lubricating the metal parts from within the pores of the weapon. This product does not require a liquid carrier to be present for protection. Slip 2000 EWL does not evaporate off because there are no carriers needed for continued protection.
Slip 2000 EWL provides additional protection through additives that in addition to the ability to penetrate between metal surfaces, it will also aid in the effective removal of built up dirt, lead, copper, carbon, corrosion particles and firing residues that can buildup and become abrasive to both recoil and gas operated mechanisms.
After cleaning, a micro thin film of our enhanced preservative immediately bonds itself and forms a barrier film on the surface that displaces water and provides a corrosion resistant barrier against rust and dirt. It is designed to give protection against hydrogen sulfide (H2S), mild mineral acids, carbon dioxide (CO2), saltwater and brackish environments, musky water, chlorine and similar adverse environments and has passed the Salt Spray Corrosion (ASTM B-117) 150 Hour test. Additionally a barrier of protection is formed to protect against all other fouling of lead, carbon, copper and plastic wad.”
I purchased the 1-ounce bottle to use on my pistols and rifles. Then I also bought the 16-ounce version because it was cheaper per ounce and I just refill the 1-ounce bottle.
