Nope Ive never used it.
Im sticking with my FP-10.I have yet to have any corrosion problems during use or storage when using FP-10.So my days of looking for a better protectant and lube are over.FP-10 does it all for me.
the van patten product works fairly well. i use it when im working on pistols and have to leave parts in the white for a while. i learned my lesson the hard way that my house has enough humidity to rust an in the white 1911 overnite. so far anything ive sprayed the v 80 on hasnt rusted. i have a k98 mauser reciever all polished up and in the white that i sprayed almost 4 years ago and still no rust on it. for guns that are finished i use either fp-10 or rem oil.
It's so nice to find many guncare lovers in this forum!
I know I am a little maniac about maintenance, but I love modern and especially vintage well-made guns and I hate to see rust or wear om them. I'm a match shooter (ISSF rules) from 30 years too, and I know that I can't give any advantage to other competitors by having my match instruments at less than 100% performance. I'm grateful for all your efforts to give an expert help to me and other 1911Forum members and I hope you are not still bored to do that, because - if you can tolerate my bad english - I have many, many questions for you!
