Does anyone use balistol for cleaning and lubricating their sig p938 or any other sig firearm?

I actually dont mind the smell nor does my girlfriend and she's usually prettt picky. I'm not sure if she enjoys the scent, but shes never complained and she usually will sit with me while I clean up after a range trip.

I love the stuff, been using it pretty much exclusively for 10 years. My only complaint is that no one local stocks it, so I either make it part of my shopping experience in a shop I like about an hour away or I order it online.

It works great, safe on most materials including wood and leather, I get complements all the time on how clean my firearms are if I trade them in on something else, etc etc.

Never seen any rust so I believe its a good preventative maintainence oil and I've never seen it dry out or get tacky. I will generally use something thicker on frame and slide rails though

I use It on household items too, rusty hinges, squeaky things.

You will not be disappointed in its performance

I know, I have read where people can't stand the smell but it doesn't bother me.
I subscribe to hickock 45 and he highly recommends it and I think he knows what he's talking about. I'm lucky that there is a shop near me that sells it. I have used it on other guns and never had a problem. Anyway after hearing him I bought a can, but then I'm one who always likes a second option. Thanks.

I use "moose milk" (Ballistol+water) to clean my blackpowder guns and straight ballistol to lube and protect them. Works great for that.

For regular firearms I prefer Hoppe's No. 9 for cleaning, CLP for general use and a good grease for lubing pistol rails.

A mix of licorice and feet!!
I don’t use it on guns because of the smell. I use it on my Expedition suspension parts after a big clean up after off-roading.

I used Hoppe's 9 products until four maybe five years ago. I started shooting Glocks with a group of people. These guys only use Ballistol on their Glocks. It works great on the pistol inside and out.

On everything else, I still use Hoppe's 9 products, including their grease.

I have used Breakfree CLP for 2 decades and like the way it cleans and lubricates and pretty much use that exclusively. On very dirty items (semi auto shotgun etc.) I use Hoppes #9 first. But see no need to change.

I’ve used it for years and like it very much. Once you get over the smell of dirty hobo feet it really is fairly decent, fairly non toxic stuff.

I also use it on wood kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Also on the dog when she gets hot spots.
