    Does KTOG still highly recommend Militec for the P3AT's? I ordered a sample from them based on some recommendations on this site. I look forward to trying it. Do you really need to bake the metal that you place Militec on?

    Some folks bake it in the oven, I used a hand held hair dryer. Worked very well but I went back to the good old Rem-Oil or the Break Free CLP for oil. I still use the Militec-1 grease on the places where grease is called for.

    I've been using MCM (molecular metal conditioner) as a cleaner and lubricant for my p3at and p32. Is there something I am missing? I thought this was recommended by kel-tec. I do use 'normal' lube for the magazines, though.

    mil tec always will be a good lube, and lord knows i've used enough of it on various weapons, but for some reason my P3 will probably never see it. i almost exclusively use grease on this one.

    As for a magazine lubricant, I have been using aerosol silicone . Spray the outside, inside, spring, and follower of the magazine and the well. After evaporation, a dry slippery surface is left and no dust or debris will collect. It works better than anything I've used. Try it- you'll like it.

    The proven product is Mil-Comm's TW-25B - used in "polish" amounts for that applications. In the sand box, US troops treat weapons etc. with it and a good tap knocks sand right off. Less is more.

    Best corrosion. Best cold temp. Best longevity in one treatment. #1 commercial lube used by services. Used by Dave Sevigny of Glock. Every Sig is made with it. Endorsed by Gunsite. Also great for knives - SOG uses it. And there's a new wipe product.

    There are plenty of dealers online.

    do you know this for a fact? i'm using the TW-25 on a number of my guns here, but i NEVER HEARD of the stuff until a few months ago (been back from the desert for 5 months or so now). must depend on what unit a guy's in, but all i saw in 16 months of sand was LSA, CLP, and Mil Tec.
