Gunny Slides was made for pistol slides and knife detents in mind. This has a thick oil carrier that transports and holds 3 dry lubricants in place. Graphene, h-BN and Molybdenum Disulfide work synergistically to give a lubricity that isnt found in any product of this viscosity. How does it work? The oil itself is a carrier that enhances the capabilities of the dry lubricants instantly. Then you have the properties of the dry lubricants that cause this lube to excel.
