I’m not sure how to explain it, but all I know is that all these products are actually pleasant to use. For decades, after weekends of match shooting, my hands would smell like gun solvent until Tuesday. This stuff cleans better, faster, easier, I don’t have to worry about carcinogens and it’s biodegradable. I keep a tube of Eagle Tears Gun Oil Paste in my range bag as it’s so convenient and sure does make the bolt run slick. The last time I let a buddy borrow some, I never got it back! I used to spend hours lapping in a bolt – but this stuff takes all of about 30 seconds. How do you beat this stuff for like five bucks?
