  • Lubricates mechanisms, bores and ammunition better and longer than even products fortified with Teflon*

  • Ideal for semiautomatics and automatics

  • Sticks to metal like a magnet to prevent rust ... even in wet weather

Here's What The Experts Have to Say...

"Absolutely the best all-around product I've ever used on a firearm."

Larry Bozka
Award-winning Outdoor Writer

"This could well be one of the most important new products to appear in recent years."

David R. Chicoine
Bullet 'n Press Magazine

"The best metal protectant I have ever used. And, it's one of the most effective lubricants for .22 rimfire semiautomatic actions."

Chris Christian
Gunworld Magazine
"If you are interested in ending your search for a do-everything firearms maintenance product, CorrosionX is worth a look."

Polar Bonding is The Key to CorrosionX FOR GUNS' Performance!

Unlike ordinary cleaners, oils and greases, molecules of CorrosionX FOR GUNS form a magnetic attachment with metal.

  • Swab a dirty bore with CorrosionX FOR GUNS, and it will work its way through contaminants to reach the metal, lifting them off the surface for easy removal with a patch. Leave a very light coat of the product all over the weapon; it will prevent rust between uses, and make it even easier to clean next time.

  • Competitive .22 caliber pistol shooters say that cleaning and lubricating with CorrosionX FOR GUNS increases their time between jams from 200 - 300 rounds to 1,500 rounds or more.

  • A major U.S. law enforcement agency reported that a light coat of CorrosionX FOR GUNS in the bore increased muzzle velocity by more than 100 fps, kept barrels noticeably cooler, and it even improved accuracy and consistency. They treat their ammunition, as well as their weapons, with a very small amount of the product applied to the bullets with a slightly-dampened patch.

  • Because CorrosionX FOR GUNS bonds to the metal it contacts, it's less likely to "sling off" semiautomatic and automatic actions, making it an excellent replacement for messy greases.

  • CorrosionX FOR GUNS is ideal for valuable antique and collectible weapons. It protects them from rust; it won't hurt metal finishes, in fact, it enhances their appearance. And it won't attract dust or dirt.

  • It's also a great lubricant and rust preventative for reloading processes and equipment. Very little product is required for effective lubrication. Too much applied to ammunition could disable unsealed primers since CorrosionX is such an extraordinary penetrant.

Like all Corrosion Technologies Corporation products, CorrosionX FOR GUNS is 100% guaranteed. If it doesn't meet your satisfaction, we'll refund your purchase price... NO IFs, ANDs or BUTs!

Here's all of what Dick Metcalf had to say about CorrosionX in his "Worth A Look" column in Shooting Times:

I sometimes think there are more different kinds of firearms lubes and rust-prevention compounds on the market these days than there are guns. However, I have recently become a believer in one particular item and have begun using it exclusively. The product is CorrosionX.

As a corrosion inhibitor, CorrosionX polar bonds to metal (water beads on it like car wax), prevents rust from starting even with extended exposure to rain, and withstands extreme handling abuse. It repels moisture with the thinnest of coats. I've rubbed hard with a salt-sweaty thumb on a barrel wiped down with CorrosionX and moisture still beads. And its polar-bonding effect works to prevent existing rust from progressing - spray it on a gun where rust specks have already begun, and it'll stop it cold.

As a lubricant, CorrosionX offers a lower coefficient of friction than even PTFE-fortified products ( the Teflon, semiteflon, and other polymer-bead compounds). Plus, since it's specifically designed for high-temperature(s), it doesn't burn off or sublimate away during hot-action use. I recently used it to lube the yoke/crane cylinder-rotation shafts of two .357 Magnum revolvers during a 10,000-round endurance review, where 500-round strings were standard. CorrosionX worked longer and better than anything I've used before. The cylinder/yoke areas would get too hot to touch, but the lube did not dry up and was visibly still "moist" when I pulled off the cylinder.

As a penetrating agent, CorrosionX is remarkable. The manufacturer reports incidents where its application has freed the frozen actions of guns that have laid for weeks in the soaking ruins of building fires. That's pretty extreme.

Here's more from Chris Christian's GUN WORLD article on CorrosionX:

Unfortunately, .22 rimfire semi-auto pistols happen to be one of the more difficult firearm designs to keep functioning in a reliable manner. And the same also applies to semi-auto rimfire rifles. There are two major reasons for this, and they really aren't the fault of the gun.

The first is that the .22 Long Rifle cartridge (regardless of who makes it, or how much it costs) is an inherently dirty little rascal. It tends to spew a significant amount of lead and powder residue every time the trigger is pulled.

The second is that the rimfire semi-auto action is rather small and confined. It doesn't leave a lot of room for this debris to settle in, nor can it be blown out of the action ­ as is the case with centerfire semi-autos Crud tends to accumulate in a .22 rimfire, and when enough of this crud accumulates, the gun tends to stop shooting. That's not a good thing to happen, especially in the middle of a match, or if you have just figured out the lead and sight picture on a rapidly-vanishing varmint.

You can compound that problem quickly if you use the wrong lubricant for the gun. Some otherwise outstanding oils and lubes tend to hold powder and lead residue, which builds up quickly and leads to failure in as few as 50 to 100 rounds. Other lubes, like Rem Oil or Tetra Gun, do not allow firing residue to cling as tightly; if my Ruger was properly cleaned and then lubed with these, I could expect as many as 300 rounds ,give or take, before the gun decided to take an extended break in the middle of the action.

I believe I have found a better lube than that. CorrosionX is a relatively new product using some very high-tech ingredients. Those components surface bond with metal, form a self-healing shield and resist wearing extremely well.

To find out how CorrosionX might work with rimfires, I took my Ruger Mark II target handgun, stripped it, hosed it with carb cleaner and thoroughly spray-lubed it with CorrosionX. I then took a fresh 500-round brick of CCI Green Tag (an excellent performing match load, but an outside lead-lubricated round of the type that causes the most sludge build up in many .22 rimfires) and began firing them. This was not a torture test ... I engaged in normal precision practice (30 to 50 rounds per session, twice a week) for the next six weeks.

The only maintenance on the gun during the six-week period was to: (1) wipe the breech face with a clean patch after each shooting session, and (2) run one dry patch through the bore every 100 rounds. No additional lubrication, internally or externally, was provided during the six-week period.

After 10 years of shooting this gun in competition, I have found that the very best lubricants would allow 300 to 400 rounds of reliable functioning before lubrication-related malfunctions began to occur.

I finished the 500-round brick of Green Tag without a single lubrication-related malfunction. At the end of that brick, the gun was still purring right along; I had a match the following weekend, however, so I terminated the test and cleaned and lubed the gun. I do not know how far I would have been able to push that gun, but after 500 rounds of lead match ammo, the action was quite clean and the gun was still running smoothly.

CorrosionX, obviously, does not trap firing residue within the gun. It is superior to any other lubricant I have ever used for .22-rimfire actions. In fact, I was pretty much astonished at its performance!

As a plus, CorrosionX does marvelous things to the rust that seems to grow on my guns. My hands will rust just about any metal they come in contact with, and every handgun I own wears a slight patina of rust on the front and back of the grips. During the initial cleaning of the Ruger Mark II, (blue steel) pistol, the CorrosionX removed the patina from the grip area. And, despite the fact that I applied no more lubricant during the entire six-week test even in the humid Florida climate I live in the patina never returned. CorrosionX stopped that. And, it stopped it on my other blue steel guns, as well. This is, without a doubt, the best surface metal protectant I have ever used!
