    Got the PDF from AR15.com (http://ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=360169)

    From the December 2006 copy of SWAT Magazine, screen shots from the PDF

    I've replaced all my weapon shield with vagisil. They should start sending free samples.

    Good read. I need to shoot my AR more before I worry about lubing it.

    Its probably had 10-20k rounds thru it

    Its worn. but nothing excessive.. I doubt any rifle would have a perfect parkerized finish after that many rounds anyways

    We use 75% Mobile 1 10/30 and 25 percent dexron 3 ATF fluid, works better than any issued CLP crap they hand out.

    That's all I use too. Same bottle of Mobile 1 for years now. I use the ATF during the winter. I keep it in an old mustard bottle.
