    Great thread and lots to digest here so thanks for sharing. Always fancied having a bash at tweaking an old gun.

    I've used it on several pieces of machinery and the results have been very disappointing indeed. It works well as a penetrating oil, but is pretty useless as a lubricant and hopeless for rust protection.

    I use a lot of GT85 - on the various motor/pushbikes/garden tools. Prefer it to WD40, in fact. Fine for gears/chains, show no signs of rust/seizing, kept outside all year round. The garden tools get a heavy coat over winter. But have only ever used it to soak a seized piston on my guns. Think it's too thin/not durable for gun use.

    Here's a great test of various lubes and their rust protection results.
