    Weapon Shield

    I pulled my guns out of the safe last week to see if any of the ones need touched up with some oil (it's been about a year). I pulled the bolt back on a couple rifles and noticed that the oil on the bolt was green in color.

    I used weapon shield on them. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm a little leary now that I've seen the nice shiney steel covered in green oil? I switched back to Militec

    I've been using WeaponShield for quite some time now & never had anything like happen.
    Green coloration is usually indicative of brass & bronze so I'm best guessing that since "Green" is showing in the bolt area that it's trace residual cartridge brass residue or vaporized bullet jacket residue.

    That's what I was thinking too. I was wondering if maybe the WeaponShield was having a bore cleaner effect.

    I bought the weapon shield when it first came out. I wonder if it has changed since then?

    I gave the guns a good scrubbing before I oiled them too.

    It's an interesting quizzical thing.
    Call WeaponShield and ask them about it.
    I'd be interested in hearing what they had to say about it.
    I know that steel does not rust or corrode with any "green" coloration so I'm just best guessing that it's a trace of something that the WeaponShied pulled out of the pores of the steel.
    In a way that could be a good thing.

    I've been using WeaponShield since George intro'd it on one of the 1911 boards, never have seen this happen.

    I got in on the deal when George was giving away the lettle bitty bottles, I had to go out a buy one of the big bottles too, I liked it so much.

    It's very much like his original FP-10 (only better), before Shooters Choice messed with the formula.

    I emailed George about a week and a half ago and he's sending me a 1oz. bottle, but I've yet to see it. George was the inventor of FP-10 and he claims that the original formula for FP-10 is not the same as what they sell today, but that his new Weapon Shield is far superior to anything FP-10 ever was. I like the FP-10 well enough (but like Militec-1 better) and I'm anxious to see what is better.
