GT85 is basically kerosene plus teflon.

It's what i spray on my internals and slide when using it regularly, but for long term storage want something like Ballistol.

I use nothing else for cleaning my auto, but I use Lucas gun oil (off the bay) for the bolt rails. The Lucas oil stays put even during storage and only requires a VERY small amount, I also use it on all of my multi chokes.

I've tried WD40 dry lube, don't like it much as it don't work as well as expected it was ok for a few shots but didn't hold up for more. I use a drop of zero friction oil on each slide rail after cleaning and a drop on the recoil spring every few months or so.

I`ve used virtually nothing else for many years with no ill effects, I use it for cleaning and lubricant on gas and inertia operated semis.

Was thrown back to my yoof then, I read GT185. 😎 

And me. Spraying it around my garage like air freshener 

I love gt85 just for the smell. Always got a cab in my gun room but never thought about using it on my semi . ( might sting lol)

Isn’t it strange when the OP asked about GT85 and it’s advantages you get a comment about a different product, that according to the poster didn’t give him the expectations he required from that product.

l cannot understand why someone who is not using the product the OP is requesting information on would post such a comment, other than for their own benefit, but has no knowledge or useful information of the product under discussion.

This is not the first time a post has been intentionally disrupted for no apparent reason other than the poster showing his knowledge, or lack of in this case, of something the topic is not about.

Please if you have no relevant information on the subject matter KEEP QUIET.

By the way l use GT85 for cleaning and lubing my rifles, shotguns, bicycles, cars and anything else that may require lubing or protection, and at £2.00 a can in Aldi you really can’t go wrong.

Pigeon shredder your comments are obviously directed at my post. As mine seems to be the only one not singing it's praises. Used it on bike chains was same as other spray oils.

If so the original poster asked about GT85 being same as dry lube because he can't get any dry lube. No it's not same as dryube it's a light oil with added PTFE same as many other makes nothing special. Some love it some don't. If he ain't interested in any other remarks he can ignore them.

Shame you couldn't

I hate it when people discuss things on discussion forums too. It's just not the time nor the place. If you want to discuss things go to a WI coffee morning!

I think the mods should lock every thread after the first response. That should stop discussion spreading.

Used GT85 for years, good stuff, no complaints. 

Having run out I am presently trialling Hornady One Shot, which is excellent but not cheap.
