There are a lot of "tactical milspec bestest ever !!!eleven!!!" products marketed today.
Most of them are VASTLY overpriced.
Consider 1.5 ounces of "Firearms Grease" is only 10.99 on SALE!!! Oh what a bargain. (that's seven bucks thirty three cents an ounce).
How is that grease worth so much more than this grease? 7.99 for 12.5 ounces? (that's a whopping sixty four cents an ounce, less than one tenth of the tacticool stuff)
The only real difference I could find is in the temperature ratings. The top of the line automotive grease is only rated from -40 to 375 while the Milcomm is rated -90 to 450.
So the question is this, am I ever going to shoot my firearms in less than -40 degree weather? If so then maybe it becomes worth it to buy the expensive stuff. Am I ever going to shoot my guns until the bearing surfaces are above 375 degrees? Probably not, but if I were, then maybe the expensive stuff would be worth it.
But the scientist in me has one more question. Is the automotive grease only rated to those temperatures because it doesn't need to be rated further? Obviously vehicles drive in Alaska year round where temperatures are below -40 degrees at times, and even regular low end lithium grease seems to be doing fine.
Something to think about anyways....
