USA -(Ammoland.com)- I’m going to admit something that no gun owner would be proud of:  I hate cleaning my guns.  I find it tiresome, boring, and time-consuming, and I’ve often wished there was a way to make it easier.

A lot of this has to do with lubricant.  I know, it sounds weird for a guy who doesn’t mind being elbow-deep in deer guts to complain about messy oils. But it’s really about quality and efficiency. Most gun oils begin to collect particles immediately.

They then form a paste that becomes corrosive and abrasive, and they also cause jams if left too long. There’s nothing more annoying than missing a duck or rabbit because I couldn’t rack a shell in time.

I’ve been struggling to find a good gun lubricant that works in all kinds of conditions, doesn’t clog, lowers the amount of overall maintenance, and most importantly won’t contribute to my miss rate.

A few years ago, I found one. It’s called Fin Super.

I've been using Fin Super for three years, and I think it's fantastic.  It’s extremely slippery, and it prevents rust.  Fin Super is nothing like your typical gun oil.  It’s a dry PTFE spray.  It uses something called MicPol technology, which I decided to look up on the product website because I was so impressed with this stuff.  It stands for “micronization and polarization”.

Micronization means the tiny particles of additive sneak into every crack and crevice in the metal, forming a smoother surface. Polarization means that there is a magnetic attraction between the negatively-charged particles of additive and the positively-charged gun metal, so it can’t be simply wiped away.  It also won’t get thin and runny when hot (heat doesn’t seem to affect it at all), and it won’t disperse under pressure.

It lasts up to ten times as long as regular lubricants, and it’s used by a variety of American police and military forces on their weapons.

I learned a few other things on the product website, too.  For one, Fin Super can actually be applied directly to electrical contacts.  It helps remove corrosion that might already be there, and it prevents new corrosion from forming.  This means you can spray it directly on electrical systems to protect them. Name me a gun oil that can do that!  Another thing I learned is that you can use it anywhere you want to repel water and dirt, or to clean things that are already rusty.  I found this out the hard way when I mistakenly left my shotgun in its cloth sleeve for a month.  Experienced gun owners understand how moisture condenses in cases and causes rust. It looked as if I had pulled it up from the bottom of the ocean.  Spraying Fin Super onto the barrel helped remove all that rust, and with further applications I have seen no signs of further rust gathering (although I don’t leave it in my case anymore, either).

What all this means to me is that my bolt-action .303 and my pump-action 12-gauge require no degreasing, and cleaning them has become as simple as just giving them a good wipe.

Gunpowder residue finds it much harder to bond with the inside of my barrels, and that means it comes out more easily.

Because the layers of protection build up with every application, my guns are actually getting easier to clean.  This is just what I wanted.

I also use this stuff around the house in dozens of different ways. You can’t say that about many gun oils. I find it superior to other aerosol lubricants because it coats surfaces better and lasts longer. You can use it anywhere you would use WD-40, as well as a lot of places you can’t.

I’ve had the same can of Fin Super for over three years now.  It gets regular use and it’s still half-full.  In my opinion, this is the best lubricating product and the best value out there.  Highly recommended for all gun owners, as well as home owners in general.

Editors NOTE: Fin Super is No longer available in the USA.

    1. Interflon Fin Super is back on Amazon and available for purchase! Just search “interflon fin super”.

      1. DeltaOne does not have the distribution rights to sell Interflon Products. Cease and desist now. Any products not sold by unauthorized sellers are not legitimate. The Interflon legal team is reviewing this posting in addition to the Amazon listings.

    2. Better idea: use good ‘ol Hoppes #9 solvent with the new, miracle ingredient ‘elbow grease’ to clean your firearm. Best of all ‘elbow grease’ is free! ‘Elbow grease’ will even assist you in racking a shell in time. After your firearm is clean, you can use (free!) ‘elbow grease’ to lubricate your firearm with a good gun oil (that need not cost $30 a can). ‘There is a sucker born every minute’ – P.T. Barnum.

    3. Nothing wrong with cleaning a firearm with Hoppes #9 along with the new, miracle product called ‘elbow grease’. And best of all, said ‘elbow grease’ is free! ‘Elbow grease’ even assists you in ‘racking a shell in time’! And after your firearm is clean, you can use even more (free!) ‘elbow grease’ to apply a good firearm oil (that does not have to cost $30 per can). ‘There is a sucker born every minute’ – P.T. Barnum.

      1. Ha ha! I guess you are the sucker, or pretty bad at math. A 2 oz can of Hopps #9 solvent retails on amazon for $7.83. In comparison to Fin Super which is roughly 10 ounces (10.14 to be exact), the same amount of Hopps would run you $36.85. Added bonus with Fin Super, it does as advertised and no elbow grease is required.

    4. I’ve used this stuff before. I was given a can by a vendor at a gun show. That was three years ago – I still have the same can!! This stuff goes a long way. I agree with Bill – totally accurate.

    5. At $30 a spray can it should come with someone to clean my AR as well
      There are LOTS of PTFE dry products on the market and basically all have the same claims and all work pretty much the same. Been using them on medical equipment (not surgical obviously) for years.

      1. Ounce per ounce comparison it’s right on par with other popular gun lubes such as break free and Tetra Grease. The Fin Super on Amazon is 28 for a 300 ml can which is roughly 10 ounces. The PTFE additive has been specially treated to penetrate every crack and crevice and to last for a very long time. A little goes a long way. The can has a 4 year shelf life. Not a chance you will be able to use the whole can in 4 years unless you are terrorist. 🙂

      2. There aren’t any other PTFE sprays on the market that have magnetic adhesion, which Fin Super does (due to polarization of lubricant particles). It creeps beautifully too… it can even penetrate sealed bearings. Has a lot of other uses besides guns.

    6. Sory to disagree with you but Tetra Gun Grease kicks its a–! There is NO better lubricant in the universe.

      1. On the other hand, it’s a lube and not an oil. But, PFTE’s are not good things and Tetra also fills in every microscopic pore in metal surfaces and makes them as slick as ice.

        1. Tetra grease’s additive is described as a fluoropolymer. I checked out their MSDS’s and did a little on-line research and Tetra Gun Grease, does not disclose what type. Fluoropolymer is a very broad description and examples of types of fluoropolymers are PTFE and PVA. Based on Tetra gun greases description, I would bet the additive is either PTFE or PVA. Check out the differences here: http://www.differencebetween.net/science/chemistry-science/difference-between-pfa-and-ptfe/ The readers digest version is that they share similar properties, but PTFE is superior when it comes to being less water absorbent and against weathering. Also “lube” is short for lubricant. Oil is classified as a lubricant. And in both Fin Super’s case and Tetra Gun Grease, PTFE (Or PVA for tetra) is actually good. Tetra Gun Grease sure is pricey tho – $8.58 per oz!!

        2. What are you talking about?? Tetra Gun Grease is PTFE based!! Where do you think they got their name from? polytetrafluoroethylene – PTFE – poly-TETRA-fluoro-ethylene

    7. Yep, I use this stuff too, and it’s very very good… this is totally accurate from my perspective. I got it from a friend who picked some up in Europe, so I’m glad to see it’s in the States now.
