View Full Version : July sale: Declare your independence from oil…use MicroSlick!

07-04-2012, 3:12 PM
For the month of July, B&E will coat your AR-style bolt and trigger combo in Micro Slick for $40! Bolt alone is $30; coating the sear surfaces on the trigger and hammer package is on-sale for $15 alone. If you have other Micro Slick needs, send us a PM/Email and we will quote you a custom sale price.

Personally, our experience with MicroSlick has been fantastic. The overwhelming feedback from our customer base is also very positive: an inexpensive upgrade that significantly improves their rifles’ reliability, feel, and cleanliness.

Our tests have compared mil-spec triggers before and after coating, using an ‘old school’ spring scale. There is approximately a 20% decrease in trigger-pull force after coating (before coating, the average trigger force was 7.5lbs, after coating required 5.3lbs).

Return shipping (USPS, with tracking service) will be $5 for the first three bolts and trigger sets (add $4 for insurance). Turnaround time for MicroSlick only orders is 3-7 days. B&E uses the PayPal invoice system so we readily accept online payments, including credit cards.

The shop AR, our experimental MicroSlick mascot, is up to 1700 rounds through it with ZERO lube on the bolt! It gets only a very basic wipe-down every 800-ish rounds. It is running as strong as it ever has.

My personal AR has almost 1500 rounds through it with only a drop of oil on each side of the cam pin. It has had ZERO maintenance. I have not experienced ANY failures due to the lack of lubrication in my rifle. Micro Slick Rocks!

So….get off the oil, and come on over to Micro Slick! Your rifle will be cleaner, smoother, and more reliable!

Here is an example of a freshly coated bolt and trigger group.

No two are exactly the same, some come out a little lighter in color some have a slight swirl. The gray is just a guide color to help the applicator make sure all surfaces are coated. The gray color may wear off over time, but the MicroSlick dry lubricant has become permanently attached to the metal and will not wear off.

Now back from my week fishing at Eagle Lake. All PMs have been replied to. Sorry for any delay, cell/internet coverage is poor at best there.

To try to make up for any delays, next five bolts get an extra $5 off....

Any more details on the coating itself? I mean I've used some really good coatings before... And then some that were so horrible I threw away the coated parts.

I guess I'm just really cautious and want to hear more details...

What kind of "details" do you want?

In a nutshell it when applied it creates a permanent bond with the metal and reduces the need for other forms of lubrication. I'm not saying that everybody can run their ARs dry like me, but I have not had any issues.

I do apply it "heavy" as so when some of the excess wears off, it will actually fill in some of the microscopic pores of the surface it is sliding against. Granted is will not be a permanent bond, but it can only help.

Copied and pasted from Cerakote's MicroSlick page...

Dry film lubricants coatings are designed to create a permanent lubricated surface to impede galling and the seizing of components. Like or dissimilar materials can benefit from the application of these materials. The suggested application processes allow the coating to become an intrinsic part of the component rather than a coating on the surface.

Micro Slick's formulation prevents surface-to-surface contact, thus reducing friction and wear between mating surfaces. The exceptional low resistant to shear enables the Micro Slick coated surface to operate with extremely low friction. Micro Slick is available in both air cure and oven cure systems.

So it gets baked on?

Actually this product is the only air cure one I normally stock. I have not seen the bake version in almost 2 years.
