The Swiss issue cleaning kits with 2 tubes of grease.
I'm curious if the soldiers actually use grease as a lubricant for their STGW 90s, or do they use a lubricating oil?
I've used LSA (aka Breakfree) as a lubricant for decades and it's always been fine. I don't rely on LSA as a cleaning solvent, though.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
I use the grease provided in the cleaning kits that the current-production guns ship with. It's Italian-made "special anti-gall white grease for guns and chokes". I haven't had any trouble out of it. I'd imagine the grease provided to Swiss soldiers in their kits is what SiG recommends. Whatever soldiers actually end up doing may not be advisable.
I have a mint 55X cleaning kit that I've never used for my 551-2 SP. It's about 15 years old
I have a tube of Lucas white lithium grease that I've used on my ArmaLite AR-10B.
I will look at that cleaning kit again but I seem to remember the grease tubes had some variety of black grease in them.
* I looked at my 15+ year old cleaning kit. At that
time both grease tubes had black grease in them.
They're still full.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Malysh,
The lube provided in this containers is called “Automatenfett”. It´s lithium grease mixed with Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). It´s the standard CLP of the Swiss Armed Forces and used in all of their automatic weapons.
That sounds quite a bit like the old USAF grease.
I wonder if the USAF got the idea from the swiss.
Personally I use ALG Go Juice for lube on all firearms: handguns, SMGs, rifles, semiautos and fullautos, including all of my Swiss 55x. Go Juice stays in place very well, doesn’t gum up, is non-toxic, and it cuts carbon amazingly well.
The Swiss grease is commercially available as Aeroshell. This same grease used on the AR15 barrel nut and upper receiver threads during barrel install.
