It is nice testing. It will help us find products that can reduce rust at least. And help us decide on products for use in preserving stored firearms.

And one of the reasons these products might be able to reduce rust in any case is because the product that prevents rust the best probably is able to stay put. So that is important for lubrication also.

Could try boeshield, corrosion x max wax and av30 for some heavier duty protection. Also lps 3

Brownells did a similar test a few years ago:

I've been very happy with Boeshield T9.

I have some Boeshield to try now but I'd have to order the other products.

Maybe another one to try would be Hoppes Elite. It seems kind of runny however so I am guessing it would not provide too much protection.

Thanks for taking the time to do this and for sharing the results. I have some CLP from 2000ish that I still use from time to time as well as Butch's Gun Oil. I have to say that I will check into Eezox as it seems to be a very good product.

That brownells test shows wd40 outperforming boeshield. That's just not so.

I've never compared the two side by side, but one of the few things WD-40 is good at is short term rust protection and water displacement. Long term, I don't care for it because it turns to a sticky, varnishy mess.

Given the choice though, I'll take Boeshield.

If you guys want I can test these two head to head and see which works the best in my experiment.

I always include wd-40 in my tests just to have a common household standard in the test. wd-40 is a very good rust stopper but it doesn't belong anywhere near a firearm. Way too much solvent content, gums up over time and is a poor lube. About the only thing WD-40 could be used for is a very field expedient cleaner or EXTERIOR wipe down to prevent rust and displace water. Even that, I would only use it an emergency type situation.

I would never use WD40 on a gun. I would use it for just a few household uses. I still remember when this woman I went bicycling with tried to lubricate her bike using WD40. The way it was squeaking anybody could tell it needed lubrication.

So far CorrosionX is working for me. Although I still have just limited time with it. Now that the winter is here I will not go shooting unless there is an unusually warm winter day. So I will find out how well CorrosionX stays on the guns in long term storage.

The CorrosionX looks like the best gun oil I have used. It is better than Breakfree, especially this free Breakfree, and Hoppes Elite, and far better than RemOil.

On my S&W M&P 9mm semi-auto any oil seems to do a good enough job on the barrel but something better is needed for the slide areas. The CorrosionX seems to be working pretty well and if I didn't have it I think I would use lithium grease on the slides.

Today I began another rust test to include:
1) Eezox (since it did the best in my last experiment)
2) Boeshield T-9
3) WD-40
4) Muscle Products PL-10 lithium complex grease
5) Pro-Shot 1 Step
6) Safariland Breakfree CLP (since it did so poorly last time rechecked to see if it's
performance last time was come sort of anomaly)

Check back for an update in a week.

How about G96 spray? I've used it for years for light cleaning and for wipe down of rifles and handguns. Smells good too!
I've never had any surface or bore rust from long term guns stored in the closet.

I'd love to try some but none of the gun stores around here sells it. Send me some and I'll try it.

Interesting! I had been wondering why the new CLP looks different...
That EEZOX mopped the floor with them, is the catch its highly carcenogenic? Or is that just the aerosal version?
