    Anybody Tried FireClean Lube?

    Howdy Folks Happy New Year! This is my 1st post after lurking a while- I'm just an amateur enthusiast of HK91 and M9. Just wondering if any discussion of the new FireClean lube has happened? I have been using Rem DriLube which is a Teflon film that seems to stick and work pretty well, but I am not in a sandbox... Might be too sticky for that. Doesn't seem to attract or collect dirt like oil does. But this FireClean might be a game-changer?

    https://fireclean.myshopify.com/

    And it's the only lube for sale on HKParts.net:

    http://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/FIREC...le-2p16454.htm

    Maybe they only sell it because it's expensive and small...

    Anyway, I have found lots of good info about HK91 stuff, thanks! Is there an armorer's manual for the M9 pistol anywhere to download?

    Thanks, Jake

    Welcome to the forum. I can't say I have ever used the fire clean lube, but look forward to any reviews of a new product.

    There were many reports on this on other sites. It was released somewhere (brain cells don't remember when) that it is actually (pretty much) Crisco.....and snake oil..........YMMV.

    if you have a AR put it in the recess of the bolt carrier where the bolt goes in. shoot a couple hundred rounds. then come back and tells how that went.

    I've been on this planet long enough to know whatever lube you use, you are always going to get carbon build up where you have to use a little "elbow grease" on it.

    the claim


    that "fouling can be simply "wiped off" with a rag or paper towel. Wire brushes with smelly solvents, dental picks to "pick off" carbon, etc. are a thing of the past."

    is the biggest load of bull I have heard. it ranks down there with "self cleaning bullets". that hype is designed to fool people into shelling out 30 bucks plus shipping who are lazy in cleaning their firearms into believing "it's just a matter of wiping and carbon magically gone"

    Welcome aboard! I don't mind cleaning my weapons, so will stick with Remoil and if I need a little grease white lithium (spray can) or red lithium with a q-tip.
    Then there is Perro's (Mike's) famous F/A Cetme that was on a several thousand rd count and never been cleaned.
