Gun Snot™, a new rifle and pistol lubricant has the highest content of Teflon™ on the market today. Over 95% of Gun Snot is perfluorinated material.
Gun Snot was developed primarily for use in precision air rifles but has proven just as effective in AR-15’s. Air rifles in effect are mini-diesel engines. Take a volume of air, compress it, add fuel and it will ignite! Great for your truck, not so good for the polymer seals in your air rifle.
Working with Matt Emmons, Gold Medalist for the US in Athens 2004 the development and sale of Gun Snot Paste and Liquid Lubricants were found to be ideal for precision fire arms.
Gun Snot Paste is very creamy containing Teflon™ particles are 0.2 microns in diameter. A lot less than a human hair. Gun Snot Liquid is extremely thick which promotes staying power. Gun Snot stays where you put it.
Key benefits of Gun Snot brand products include;
1 No mixing before use
2 Will not dry out if you lube and store your weapon for long periods of time
3 It stays where you put it, migration is minimal
4 Will not wash out of a trigger on the M-16 if you use bore cleaners or solvents

6 Compatible with virtually every component in your weapon of choice
7 Will work on your Daisy 853 air rifle as well as it does on your best Jewel or CLE trigger job of your favorite Bushmaster
8 A little goes a long way
9 Will add a feel to your trigger and bolt that is unparalleled
Directions for Use:
- Make sure the surface you are lubricating is clean of all the old lube and dirt. Gun Snot™ works best on perfectly clean surfaces
- We find that Brake Cleaner from an auto pats store works best as it takes off old Gun Snot as well as any of the hydrocarbon lubes you may have used in the past.
- Read the label. The one that contains Tetrachloroethane is the one you want.
- Side note – if Hoppes ™ takes off the other Teflon™ based greases you have used in the past; chances are that the amount of Teflon in there was miniscule.
- You must use a highly fluorinated or chlorinated solvent to remove Gun Snot.
- That is how you know it is perfluorinated.
- If you are comfortable with taking your gun apart, look at the parts very closely. Especially the ones inside other parts.
- If you see a shiny spot, try to figure out what is making it shiny. That is a wonderful place to make sure that you lubricate with Gun Snot Paste Lubricant.
- If two surfaces are sliding over one another, that is a wear point. Lubricate it.
- If you have parts in your gun that seem to pivot around a rod or shaft, that is a very good place to use Gun Snot Liquid Lubricant..
- Use Gun Snot™ sparingly. A little goes a long way
- You can always add more
- Unused grease only becomes a dust and dirt magnet and that never enhances the performance of any lubricant.
- For high power, a tiny amount of Gun Snot actually acts as a release coating on metal surfaces to facilitate cleaning the next time you take it apart!
- Gun Snot™ is designed for use on sliding plates, miniature bearings, rollers, etc.
- Use your Trigger Diggers to help lube the Trigger parts and other small and tiny places you need to get to.
- Retain the Trigger Digger and Gold Digger only if you can keep them clean until you use them next time.
Stuff You Need to Know:
- Never contaminate any smoking product with Gun Snot™.
- Gun Snot™ is persistent; it hangs around, so scrub up very well after handling.

There are two versions of Gun Snot; Liquid and Paste. Use the liquid on small roller and hard to reach bearing areas. Use the Paste on larger sliding and high contact point areas. If you find that the ‘stiction’ of the paste on your bolt or bolt carrier is too high, just add a few drops on the paste lubricated bolt and ‘adjust the feel’ to exactly what you want.
