Who greases the outside of the barrel? Not sure what you mean. Is it possible the grease is not causing the corrosion but just not able to prevent it?dubb-1 said:I noticed the problem on the outside of the barrel...Not so much after shooting, but just while sitting in the (dehumidified) safe. Then I found FP10.
Well said gigi*riva.gigi*riva said:I spoke long ago with a lube engineer who talked about additives. Using certain additives that would in some situations be harmful but turning them to your advantage in their interactions with other additives and the lubricating regimes themselves, is what in the business is referred to as an "elegant" solution. I would guess that the epoxidized additives and their acid scavenging properties, such as those in FP-10, would merit the "elegant" title. I can only say that no other high-tech gun lube manufacturer that I've run across, other than MPC, EVER addresses the issue of heat-formed and pressure-formed acid-induced corrosion, which is one of the ubiquitous results of chlorinated additives.
