Interflon: Fin Super Synthetic Lubricant

Interflon-Fin-Super-01

 

Updated Notice from Interflon
We have been informed by the Head Office of Interflon in the Netherlands that there is an issue with selling Interflon products directly to consumers online, because the Licensing Agreement that Interflon has with DuPont for the use of Teflon in their products limits them to selling these products to the professional market only.

We will be taking the product off line by the end of this week and will no longer be selling directly to consumers. The product will still be available to professional buyers such as gun clubs and gun stores. We will also continue to supply the police forces in the US that are using our products for gun maintenance.

 
I was recently sent some Fin Super synthetic lubricant by Interflon. I believe they are working to push their product more aggressively to the firearms industry, but it applies as an all purpose product for many applications as well.

The product is generally available in a 300 ml (10.14 oz) aerosol spray can for around $28 USD (from Amazon). That comes down to aprox. $2.76/oz, a price that is pretty middle of the road for a firearms lubrication solution, but really expensive when you compare it to things like WD-40 with PTFE. Here is a break down of some of the costs that I was able to dig up on Amazon for some common products.

Product Weight (oz) Price (USD) Price/oz
Break Free CLP 4.00 $11.08 $2.77
FireClean 4.00 $29.90 $7.48
Frog Lube CLP 4.00 $9.95 $2.49
Frog Lube Liquid CLP 8.00 $27.13 $3.39
Interflon Fin Super 10.14 $28.00 $2.76
Rem Oil 10.00 $10.75 $1.08
Slip2000 EWL 4.00 $13.73 $3.43
WD-40 11.00 $8.91 $0.81
WD-40 with PTFE 10.00 $5.98 $0.60

Audio-Technica Core Bass In-Ear Headphones

audio-technica-core-bass-01

I recently killed another pair of headphones, marking the 6th pair in the past 2-3 years, so when I jumped on Amazon to take a look for some new ones, I decided to buy low priced since everything from $6 – $40 has died on me. $40 isn’t what I would call expensive for audio anything, but for in-ear headphones for the gym and occasionally listening to a podcast with, it gets expensive to have to replace them every 3 to 6 months.

Gun Maintenance: Breakthrough Solvent

Breakthrough Solvent 2oz - MountsPlus.com

Cleaning your guns… Some people clean their guns every time they use them, others don’t know what cleaning their guns means. There is a lot of gray area in between those two extremes, but think about where you fall on the scale.

I try to clean my guns after every use; I like my guns to be clean. It’s how I was taught to take care of my guns, and it’s how I still take care of my guns. Now, that doesn’t mean I take them completely apart and bust out my tooth brush and polish every single part, but I run a swab or 3 down the barrel, wipe down the major dirty parts, get as much grime, brass and lead fouling off of the gun as possible and then lubricate all of the major friction points.

Recently, I was introduced to Breakthrough® clean, a “Military Grade” cleaning solvent.
