Curious about the moly grease. For springs and whatnot?
What brand names are ?
I have cans of kopr-kote by jet lube, would that work?

JET-LUBE KOPR-KOTE is a low-friction anti-seize lubricant manufactured from a combination of micro-size copper flakes and graphite.
Applications..
KOPR-KOTE is recommended for production and maintenance jobs where speed in assembling and dismantling is essential. It assists in reducing downtime and provides full use of machinery and equipment, saving valuable man-hours while increasing production.

You really need "Molybdenum Disulfide grease".
You can get it at any "Honda" parts dept. or
any Honda outdoor power equipment dealers.

Hmmm....but a 400g tube is a lot for just working on my guns.
This is available on Amazon.ca but at $27.24 it's expensive;

What is the Moly required for? Lubricating the compression spring?
I use a graphite base grease for the slides of my blowback pistols. It's dirty but slick.

Where can I find this Balistrol that I've read about? and what exactly is it? I think it's a gun specific lubricant not a solvent or a water displacer.
I do know enough not to use harsh solvents like those used on firearms. Maybe just Goo Gone to clean the inside of airgun barrels.

Moly is good for high pressure surfaces. The one that comes to mind is on the Webley pistols where the slide is pulled over a bushing at the end of the travel, but I guess similar areas exist on a lot of guns.

Bite the bullet, buy a tube of it and never have to buy any more - you can even give some to your friends, just because.

I tell you what Daryl take your suggestion and buy the 400 g tube and mail you an envelope full of it :lol:
That should piss off Canada Post, almost as much as mailing an envelope of icing sugar. :shock:

You don't want moly grease you want moly paste the grease will migrate inside your gun and make a mess and it may cause excessive dieseling. Honda makes some but when I called around they didn't know what I was talking about. You can buy it on line or as I did order some Loctite metal free moly paste from an industrial supplier. Some online airgun dealers carry the stuff. Its expensive but a little will last a long time.

The canadian tire grease has a very low percentage of moly in it. It is not the same thing as the honda stuff or what maccari sells.

Ah, shame. I guess that explains why it is so cheap.

60% Moly ... ;) & no HonFRIGGINda didn't know wtf I was talking about & yes I called dealership garage and office... so all these people saying you can get it at your local Honda dealership .. are dealing with some different alien level of Honda. In fact most auto shops will NOT know what you are talking about... & then you have to specify 'Molybdenum' - most times you can leave out the Disulfide - then you have to see if it is 60% or more & who know what 100% moly will do or if there is even a jar non slippery enough to pack it in ha.
Eric (very knowledgeable guy) at Scope and ammo has some .. perfect size jar, price is fair considering the fact (at least for me) that either you can run around trying to find imaginary people that have this locally or just a few clicks & in the meantime support air gun business community in the process.

Jet lube also makes a moly paste, it's called MP50. I have been using that with great results. I work in the AG industry and see graphite quite a bit as well. I decided to make a special blend of moly paste and graphite powder. Careful on the proportions, it can negate the purpose of lubricating.

Just walked into a Honda Lawn Mower/Bike, Outdoor Power and just said to the Guy at the Parts Counter.."Honda Moly Grease, Sir". He Replied, "That Black Stuff". I Replied, "Let Me See".
Yes it is written on the "Cartridge".
I payed and that is it.
This is in Markham, Ontario.

Who knew there could be so much controversy over a tube of grease. Sorry paste. But then again this is dangerously close to the whole knotty topic of air gun lube. Nobody mention the pellgunoil!!

How much was the Honda moly?
