I have used Hoppe's #9 Powder Solvent on rifles and shotguns for 60 years and never have had that problem. I wipe it off with a rag and don't leave enough on the gun to become gummy though. It is a solvent, cleaner and metal protector but not so much a lubricant.

Yeah, what James said. It's a cleaner, not a lubricant. Don't be leaving it on the gun. I use compressed air to blow it out of tight places like the bolt. Lube with Hoppe's gun oil or similar, but just a light coat.

To me, "heavy" oil means a drop on a toothbrush, rubbed into a groove. Usually I just put a few drops on a tshirt patch, and wipe.

The best info ever. This efford deservers the best. Just wondering for the one shot product. Since i always wanted to see the presence of a lubricant in a gun, i dont know how can i relly on somthing i dont see. How can i determine that is there or gone. Maybe from gun not working smoothly? I shoot sporting with a beretta shotgun. If i spray all the friction points with one shot and let it dry, this will be ok? According to the evaluation it should. Iwas always attracted by dry lubes - no messy oils,greases -, maybe this is the one? How do i confirm its presence? All help appreciated.

Tremendous report

if you are ever bored- you might want to try testing STP motor Oil additive and also Mobile 1 -- maybe 0 and also 10-30 weight for friction I think you might be surprised

Shotgun safety is just as important as taking care of the shotgun

DIYGUY: Thank you for all your exhaustive research & ultimate findings. It couldn't have come at a better time for me personally. My grandson has an 870 w/ a mild rusting problem. I posted w/ questions about any who may have help w/ the issue. Help came rolling in w/ different suggestions which I appreciated greatly. My attempt at resolving the problem will be first to soak the barrel & receiver in HOT water. Then after it dries I will use, and here goes my question to you, which ever in your opinion was the best water displacing chemical in your test. Militec-1, Eezok or Strike Hold. Then spray it down w/ WD 40 Specialist Long Term Inhibitor let it dry & hope for the best. Again thank you for your research, findings & any help you can provide me.

Your sentiments, while shared by many on this forum, are not likely to reach the intended audience. The OP, "diyguy", hasn't visited this site since July 22, 2015.
