I use TW-25 also. Very good lube. It is the only lube I have used that has had a noticable difference in the smoothness of the action of a couple of guns I have. I can actually feel the difference in them.
Thanks, Larry. It's good to know that there are occasions for which it makes sense to spring for "the high-priced spread".
I recall that, many years ago, Dry-Slide was touted as the answer for sandy/gritty environments. The black MSO2 that remained after the carrier evaporated didn't seem to offer much lubricity. Glad to know there's something that works better.
I've used Tetra Grease quite a bit, and it seems to stay around a little longer than Lubriplate. Not sure how it compares to TW25B. The combination of Miltec and grease is great for tightly fitted 1911's.
I bought a tube of TW-25b a few months back. I can't say if it is better or worse than any other lube (that's hard to tell unles you have the lab equipment) out there, but I haven't had any problems.
The stuff is supposed to bond to the metal at the molecular level, but only after stripping the metal with alcohol or equivelent before applying TW-25b. It sure is a pain in the ass to detail strip the gun and alcohol wipe the contact surfaces after range sessions, so I "touch-up" the rails and lugs with oil (Mobil 1 synthetic) before shooting.
If the TW25b is bonded to the metal, then the Mobil 1 is just just there to cushion.
Once every couple months I'll degrease the whole gun and reapply TW-25b.
I'm bringing this back to the top because I've started to see posts on other boards by this "guy" and invariably he always suggests that some miracle procuct can be found at HIS website. He never does mention that he has a financial interest in directing you there.
I wonder, are you even a shooter?

I use TW-25B on my Glock 23. So I guess I do shoot, huh. How about that.
You can buy TW-25B from alot of places - online from bestdefense.com (me), glockmeister, tillman, topglock (coming soon), 100s of gun shops, etc.
Also, Kleen-Bore licenses the product, so you can get it under their label too. They include it in their cleaning kits as well. www.kleen-bore.com They also offer it in an oil. And you know Kleen-Bore's line is easy to find.
There are several high performance lubes, but this has proven it's worth. The US military agrees. Do as you please.
