New wonder oil !

Recommended Posts

I bought some to try it but haven’t used it yet! Sorry not much help I know! :blush:
But if it does not do what they claim it does in the advertising, it is in breach of the trade description Act!

So it does the work of an oily rag? i think if you were going to leave your gun for extended periods it might be worthwhile, but at that price i'll give it a quick rubdown with an oily rag and save a couple of quid!

I don't have a picture to hand unfortunately but my old 1971 flavour Miroku sbs has almost no bluing left where I have held it so many times. A quick wipe over with an oily rag with a bit of Legia stops any rusting in even the wettest of conditions - I understand the science but cannot see the need, especially not at that price, we have been looking after our guns very well for decades without this product. I suspect that it will either fall in price if they want high volume sales or remain some sort of snobby elite product

Mightbe worth a try. Let us know what you think @pinfireman

I am still surprised that after 150 years of gun making, or whatever it is they are still going rusty so easily.

They only go rusty if you let them!

Modern steels are much better. The latest Miroku nominal bore guns have more chrome in the alloy of the steel rather than chrome lining the barrels.

Any oil that prevents water and air getting to the steel will work fine. Napier VP90 vapour stuff is only one I know works on even steel.parts you can't see. Satchel in cabinet and don't have to worry.

True. Much easier if you don't use them.

The product looks good! However that guy spraying the oil carelessly like that onto the stock is not good practice.It states it gets into all the knooks and crannies Whilst trying to protect the barrel from rust then with that sort of careless use over time the gun would have a ''Spongey'' Stock.

In that case, it looks to tick all the boxes!

I still think I would be using the nozzle straw a bit more carefully and be more precise when using it near wood.I suppose if your used to cleaning guns in the conventional way with normal gun oil then it would take a bit of getting used too.I think most would strip off the forend  when spraying gun oil and I tend to use a small brush and a WD40 pen for the metal parts in or near the wood and be conscious of any over spill of oil onto wood. 

It would certainly be money well spent if it protects the gun/metal parts as said and all without having any damaging  effect on the wood, it has to be a good product.

Can you guys get kroil? Or the aerosol version aerokroil?  I keep a few guns outside in the Carolina humidity and I don’t have any rust.  I run them through a dishwasher and oil them down once a year and I have no problems.
