I have been enjoying reading up about firearm lubrication, rust prevention, and cleaning, but have noticed most talk is not backed up by facts. I have come to the conclusion that some "backyard" testing is in order. I am looking for some advice so I do not waste my own time on testing products incorrectly.
testing to compare rust prevention seems to be the extremely easy test; as is the "dirt & grime" test I will be looking forward to.
testing the lubrication is where I am at a standstill. I've got some ideas for simple testing (Nothing that can compete with professional work, of course) but I am hoping you guys might have some suggestions here.
One more question while I am posting. Does anybody know how hot a slide typically gets, or can get? I understand there are many variables, but I can't seem to come across any ballpark figures.
Thank you in advance!
