    Laying down a fine bead of oil

    The other day I bought a bottle of FP-10 and was oiling my weapon and noticed that the drops that were comming out were HUGE. Even though I put one or two drops on each rail, I still had excess coming out when the weapon was put together and for several days after. So I thought, "How could I get a small beed oil line laid down and hit key points on my triger action in tight spots and just a very small drop of oil.". So I did some calling around and the gun shops did not have anything, the craft stores didn't have anything. I was looking for a small bottle with a metal tube about one to two inches long with a small pin hole. Finally I decided to goto wal-mart and take a look in crafts. After talking to 5+ people and hitting almost every department and going to hunting and fishing twice, I noticed this in the fishing isle. It is called a "Worm Blower" by Lindy.



    Here is a pic with the bottle out of the package and the lid off. The bottle has a nice tight snap on lid.



    Here is a pic with the needle insert out of the bottle so it can be filled.





    Now I have not tried it yet but will let everyone know how it is after this friday for the ritual weekly cleaning.

    PS. the cost was only 2 dollars and some cents.
    One shot. One kill.

    Primary Carry - Taurus PT-111 Mil Pro 9mm DAO with 12 + 1 in the pipe. Holstered in a Brigade OWB M2.

    Secondary Weapon - Taurus PT1911 5" 45acp SA with 8+1. Holstered in a Kydex paddle.

    I have taken to using one of the syringes available as a set from Brownells - I keep one with Mobil 1 in it and that will deliver tiny amounts as required.

    That device too looks ideal.

    Another idea is a kitchen syringe (the needle injector type). It's got a long needle so you can oil moving parts deep inside.

    Is That Worm Smiling ?

    I use regular Hypodermic type syringes.
    I get them them for the museum & have a small pile of them.

    I do not use oil on my weapons for lube. I use it for cleaning only. (mostly WD-40 or CLP)For the lube spots on my weapons I use a couple of the high tech greases(very light type),pushed thru a very small "tooth paste tube" type applicator.

    For the slide rails,trigger pivot points,hammer pivot points,bbl lugs,etc.,of my pistols,and the bolt rails,etc,of my rifles,I apply it with a small cotton swab.

    My AR's I run dry.(I know,I know) I do this because they are not fired more than 50-75 rds at a time between cleaning. Then they get a VERY thorough cleaning. I have been known to spend a hour on a AR or AK. Also,down here in the hot climate the oils tend to "leach" and "seep" when the weapon heats up and I need to be able to hang on to them during competition. ---------

    Brownell's sells these little bottles:

    NEEDLE OILER BOTTLES

    They come in 3 packs for $6.67. I have several of these on my bench and in my range bag. I can say they work very well and they have a little top that you put on and they will not spill.

    I bought a package of 3 of those needle oilers at my local hobby shop. If I remember correctly it was less than $10.00, in my hand now and no shipping.
