|Slide-Glide is a uniquely formulated lubricant that protects all firearms from corrosion and wear. It also softens "felt recoil" in all semi-auto's, especially pistols.
Advantages over other oils and greases:
Slide-Glide provides a dramatic improvement in lubrication compared to conventional oils and greases such as lithium, or lithium-based metallic greases containing molybdenum or graphite.
Additionally, it is engineered to have a stringy characteristic that prevents "tracking" or shearing on sliding metal surfaces. It stays put - ceaselessly dragging itself back into the friction areas of the cycling slide and barrel.
It's stringy characteristic keeps the grease between the moving parts - noticeably softening the felt recoil of semi-atuomatic pistols. Your pistol just feels smoother when you shoot it.
With three viscosities to choose from, there is a viscosity of Slide-Glide that will reduce wear and improve the operation of any firearm, tool, or machine.

|Slide-Glide Lite, Standard, or Heavy?||Order|
Slide-Glide is available in three viscosities, and in tubs (pictured) and tubes:
Slide-Glide Lite (thin viscosity)
If you only will buy one viscosity, the Lite is perfect for all firearms in all climates.
Slide-Glide Standard (medium viscosity)
Slide-Glide Standard was originally blended for "stock-type" pistols in temperatures above 60 degrees. Its viscosity is a little too thick for compensated pistols, .22's, and revolvers. Order
Slide-Glide Heavy's viscosity is specifically blended for pistols with "loose top ends" (frame to slide fit). In temperatures above 80 degrees, it also works well in non-compensated, centerfire pistols. Order
For maximum protection from wear, Slide-Glide Lite is all you need. But for maximum recoil dampening - use the thickest viscosity that allows your pistol to function with 100% reliability in the temperature where you shoot.

BEFORE you shoot with Slide-Glide in a competition: Test the viscosity and how much you apply in the temperature where you will shoot!
|Cleaning & Application||Order|
|Before first application: Thoroughly clean and dry your firearm.
Re-applying Slide-Glide: Wipe off the old Slide-Glide with a paper towel. Finish by thoroughly wiping with a shop towel, forcing the towel into sharp corners with a small screwdriver or stiff brush.
Using a "dedicated brush" (Super-cheap brushes are available on BrianEnos.com, the tip of which is showing below), apply liberal amounts of Slide-Glide to both sides of every contact area in the top end. This includes the top and bottom locking lugs on the barrel, the frame and slide rails, the bushing or cone area, and especially the upper locking lugs on the inside of the slide. Don't forget the recoil spring, guide rod, and the inside of the reverse plug. Basically, apply where anything touches anything else - except the firing pin and stop area. Assemble the pistol, cycle, and wipe off excess. After a little experience with the dedicated brush, you will apply just the right amount.
I received an unsolicited call from Darwin Nercesian, who emphatically exclaimed - "You gotta be out of your mind not to be using this stuff." So there you have it.

Note: The AR-15 cleaning brush pictured at right doesn't work quite as well as BrianEnos.com's Super-cheap brush. And thanks to Freddy Craig for the term "dedicated toothbrush."
|Will Slide-Glide attract dust or dirt?||Order|
That's a common question, and one I can answer from a layman's perspective.
I prefer shooting guns to cleaning them. When training (Shooting Bio), I would shoot 3000+ rounds (often 5000+) between cleanings, and never observed any excess wear in the top end. In fact, once a new gun "settles in," it does not seem to wear any more at all.
When I first started testing the Glide, I wondered about the "dust factor." But after shooting tens of thousands of rounds through the same pistols lubed with the Glide - in the dusty Arizona desert - and not detecting hardly any wear at all - I stopped worrying about it.
Here's my layman's theory: The key word is "insulates." The Glide insulates everything it touches - including dust or dirt. So if there are any dirt particles in the grease, the Glide insulates them from contacting the gun. I'm not an engineer, so I know that's not very scientific. It's just my theory based on what I have observed over a long period of time.
From the Hodgdon Powder Company: Most unburned powder residues that may become visible in the grease are actually lubricating in nature (graphite), and will not adversely affect the performance of the grease. (I was sponsored by Hodgdon for several years during my professional career.)
|How it began...||Order|
Initially, my inspiration to develop the Glide came from an overall dissatisfaction with available oils and greases. One day, instead of the usual oil, I lubricated the top end (barrel, slide, frame rails, and recoil spring assembly) of my .45 with "White Grease." It sure felt slick when I cycled the slide
and when I took it to the range, for the first few shots - the gun definitely felt like it kicked softer. But after a couple of magazines of ammo, it felt just like it used to when lubricated with oil. I took the slide off, examined the top end, and discovered all the grease had been pushed into the tolerances of the barrel and slide. Well, so much for White Grease. But it got me thinking, so I called an old friend and shooting acquaintance, who happened to be a lubrication engineer for General Motors.
