You probably won't. I'm sure your local airport has lots of it sitting around though!


But you're most likely going to have to order it. It's essentially what the Swiss repackage as Automatenfett and it contains no graphite.

I've always followed the principle of "Oil if it rotates, grease if it slides".
On the slides of my semi-autos I use Tetra Grease. On the sliding portion of my AR bolt carrier, I use automotive Hi-Temperature wheel bearing grease.

Some day I'll try the wheel bearing grease on my semi-autos.....should work fine. It's also a lot easier to find than the aviation grease...and cheaper.

I use Super Tech grease, commonly found at Walfart.

The place you REALLY want grease is stainless to stainless.

I tend to grease slide rails. Either Mobil 1 chassis grease. And I have to Brian Enos SlideGlide around.

Over the years I have used many of the gun products. Mobil 1 works well and is a whole lot cheaper.

Just takes a Q-tip to apply. Sparingly.

Grease on the rails. I use Milcomm TW25 grease on all my pistols. I bought a 4oz tube several years ago, it will probably last me forever. I use Mobil 1 grease (and oil) on rifles.

I've been using Lucas Oils Red & Tacky #2 on my pistol slides for a while with good results. Also use it on ar bolt carriers. Home Depot has it, a tube will last forever.

I love the Milcomm products. Mobil 1 or Amsoil chassis grease and motor oil work well, but Milcomm is slicker. I use the Milcomm grease on my SIG 1911 which is a matte stainless slide on an aluminum frame. Smooth.

Amazon has it. I picked up the Aeroshell 33MS, which is basically Aeroshell 64 now.
