Edit: New Thread - I am going to market a new oil and call it Guardian LP (not sure yet). I have a jug on the way so I can pass out around twenty samples for you guys. Just post for a sample (if you are willing to let me know via post or PM how it worked for you). Here is a rough web page with additional info: Lubri-Kit.com - Lubricate and protect your guns.

I was talking with the aerospace lube manufacturers that make my EX greases a couple of weeks ago and the rep mentioned an oil that is a major improvement in protecting against corrosion. He told me if you were to spritz it on a handful full of metal shavings, put them in a plastic bag and bury it for three years, the shavings would be as good as the day you put them in the bag. I said send me some, so he did and I have been testing it on different rifles and other steel things in the garage. I put it on the garage door chain and that quieted it down big time. Anyway, I am thinking about marketing it as a gun lube but am still testing it. He sent me some technical data and a chart on a test they did. It was a third party testing company and compared the oil with others including wd-40 in a salt spray cabinet.
The test is ASTM B-117. Most of the others came out around 100 hours with WD-40 at 120 hrs and one made it to 233 hours. Their oil made it to 840 hours.
I compared it to known gun oils and it blows them away in this test, so I made my own chart with the numbers I could find from other manufacturers.
I asked them to give me some numbers on its lubricity as well so they are running a four ball scar test. The oil has Extreme Pressure and Anti Wear additives in it and he said it is a great lubricant as well. If the lubricant scar numbers come in comparable to other gun lubes I am going to start selling it. In combination with my EX-2 greases it will be unbeatable.

Here is the chart I made comparing this new lube to the ASTM B-117 Salt Spray Test numbers from other well known gun lubes:

I'm gonna mail a sample to myself tomorrow to make sure it doesn't pop open or mess up en-route and then when the gallon jug shows up I will get the samples out to you guys.
Got room for more so go ahead and post for one if you want and PM me with mailing information.

Thanks

OK guys, I got you on the list. Got room for six more.
Agentsteve, I was wondering about that myself and ran a quick test. I put a healthy layer on a steel blank and then let it sit for ten minutes. I put the blank with the lube in my garage oven at 300F for 15 minutes. I took it out and noticed no appreciable difference in the color or consistency. I might run it again for higher temps and longer durations but was glad to see the results. Anyone wanting to run a hundred rounds through their AR with it on their bolt and carrier let me know.
