    I am planning to buy one online, please let me know if it is the same thing or different:

    http://magiclamp.pk/productView.php?...arch=hoppe&s=1
    Elahi Buksh has hoppe's solvents...Tatur1 bro visited the shop today and he posted it that they have a vast collection of hoppe's...So why don't you buy it from there instead of buying it online...Im sure buying online from magiclamp is more costly...

    synthetic mobil1 atf mixed with mobil1 10w30 oil in a 50/50 mix is excellent for cleaning and lubrication
    also dextron atf (automatic transmission fluid used in car automatic gearboxes) is common amongst many shooters for lubing and cleaning
    google it and you will be surprised at how popular it is in the west
    look under Gun Oil Substitutes here http://www.frfrogspad.com/homemade.htm#Oil
    gunsmith Grant Cunningham suggests Dexron-type ATF fluid as a lubricant http://www.grantcunningham.com/lubricants101.html
    i use synthetic 10w30 mobil 1 oil mixed with dextron atf on trigger parts and molydenum disulfide grease on the rails of semi auto pistols makes the gun smooth as butter
    also remember genuine dextron atf will be bright red ....most of the stuff sold in pakistan labelled as dextron 2 atf is fake you can tell by the colour the real stuff is bright red
    TIP OF THE DAY ____any rusty item coated or dipped in dextron atf for a few days will come out totally rust free

    @Jagga

    Since you use it regularly on your pistols, have you faced any issue like messy holster or anything like that?

    no mess if you apply it very lightly on the rails ...if you put too much on it will leak out and can mess up your hands,clothes and holster and the black mark will not wash wash off clothes.
    you only need a very tiny amount dont apply too much and you wont have a problem
    its excellent for lubricating airgun springs and makes them a lot smoother

    Thanks Jagga bro for the input. I think this grease is usually referred to as CV Joint Grease here in auto shops. A confirmation would be appreciated.

    AoA Gentlemen.

    Kindly allow me offer my two cents on the subject. C.V joint grease (mostly Molybdenum Disulfide Grease or Moly grease or MOS2 grease) is a high quality grease which can be (just as easily) used in some firearms related applications however mostly such grease is available in NLGI-2 grade which in my humble opinion is too thick for the job.

    if one is in pursuit of perfection instead of following "just to get it over with it" approach, in that case, I would suggest that one should mix it with some high quality oil to thin it down to the level of mayonnaise (NLGI-0). mixing it is easy. just add oil in small quantities and whip the whole mixture like you do with an egg. keep checking. stop mixing oil when typical mayonnaise type consistency is achieved. Simple!

    Regards.

    Bro, you can use any high quality cleaner such as hoppes or birchwood's bore scrubber. they both work well. if you want a home brew then I'm afraid you'll have to play with some chemicals which are commonly available at most hardware stores. upside: you'll save alot only if you shoot/clean alot. otherwise, the juice is not worth the squeeze. let me know if you want to play chemist then we'll take it from there.

    This might help:

    Any gun oil that you prefer bro. Oil only. No WD40, brunnox or NASA or any similar CLP that may contains solvents in the mixture.

    oh, so the regular simple gun oil that we get that should do right? I really wana try this today on my Caracal... last time I just lubed it with mobile oil and it made hell-a-lota difference in the smoothness of the gun...

    Bro I have already visited Ellahi Buksh, no doubt they have Hoppe's products, I bought a weatherguard oil from there but solvent was not available, they informed that the shipment will arrive soon but called them day before yesterday and till then the solvent was not available. Any other place if anyone can suggest?????
