    Something else that just occurred to me as I’m sitting here reading the thread and remembering things...

    The OG Slip did have issues in my early use. Even talked to Pat Rogers about it at length back then. The issue I was having was that I had a lot of rifles, and wasn’t shooting all of them all the time. A couple of guns that I lubed up with the OG formula had all of the lube run down the bolt and into the receiver extension when stored upright in the safe.

    The EWL, and grease and 30 weight, fixed all that for me.

    Chuck, everyone...this is why I posted. Where else would I get such instant and knowledgeable feedback? Until SLIP2000EWL30 shows me something different, I'm done looking.

    I never use it on anything that gets much wear...and really not as a lube. Just as an occasional cleaner when I don't need something more dedicated. Probably why I haven't had issues.

    My go to when racing bikes (the kind you pedal) road and off road was Boeshield t-9. Got excellent wear on chains and chainrings despite many k miles and races a year. I hear some use it on firearms, but I don’t plan to.

    Totally! Boeshield for the Win! It got me through the Shasta Lemurian in volcanic dust, although the chain and gears were fuct after. https://www.shastalemurian.com

    I've been using Slip 2000 EWL on my 1911s for a couple years now and it works fine for me. I like it better than the standard Slip 2000, which requires re-application more often in my experience..

    I too like Slip EWL because I have become lazy.

    I've been using Slip 2k for at least 15 years now, the 30 weight variety for about 7 years, and I run the EWL grease in all my game guns. Stuff that rotates get wet lube, sliding stuff gets the grease.

    I particularly like how it prevents carbon from sticking to the internals on my AR's. Literally, a paper towel cleanup job.

    Interestingly, Sig Sauer has recently abandoned Lucas lubes in favor of a house-branded SLIP formulation.
