Tetra Gun lube???

1374 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  DBR
What type of cheese do they put in this stuff?!?!? I know the white stuff is supposedly teflon or something, but I'd swear it's Bleu, Lindenburg, or some other "stinky-feet" cheese...

It's great stuff, but is there a reason for it smelling so badly, or do I have a bad bottle?

The Tetra Lube I got from Brownells is in a tube, not a bottle. Same stuff probably. I noticed the odor and thought maybe it was a trace of ammonia? I have smelled the same thing in chrome polish. I believe it loosens rust. The tetra stuff has "bonding" agents in it so that it hooks into the surface of the metal. I like it the best of all the lubes I've tried. It spreads real easy with a small modeling paint brush.

Tetra makes a grease and an oil, among other products. Both lubes are outstanding and well worth the price. My tube of Tetra G has no noticable smell. Lot's of complaints about the odor in the past, but I thing the formula has changed.

Tetra lubes aren't very good at rust prevention, and they contain no solvents or magic ingredients. Clean and degrease well before application.

At a combat training class, all the shotguns were hosed down with tetra during break. This was in the summer and the guns were hot. The smell was pure pig manure. No one could get near the guns until they cooled off. Maybe you are smelling "essence of pig manure"
