Quintette is less expensive. I haven't been there since they re-opened under new management. Either should work well for you.

Styx is more crowded.

Styx is a much better shooting facility IMO, but its your call. You can always go to styx and try it out, you don't have to be a member to shoot there, you just get better prices.

You would have to plan to go to Styx more than 10 times in a year in order to break even with the membership fee and rates...

When I go there -- I just pay the daily fee of $12

I use it as a general lubricant. I've had experience with it since I was first introduced to it in the military. I think it's decent, it's been surpassed by some specialty products like Slip 2000 EGL. In my opinion its the best stuff you can find on your local store shelves. As for it's cleaning and protecting abilities there are better products out there. It's not aggressive enough for cleaning and it's too thick to soak into the pores in parkerization or blueing.

Default We Used Breakfree CLP

When I was in the military we used(starting in approx. 1981) Breakfree CLP. It came in a black(generic looking)gallon jug. It was excellent for the AR's and M1A's to keep them running "wet". The FBI had several Uzi's in my armory and their armoror swore by it for those weapons also.

I use it exclusively on my barrels that have been moly coated and with 4 patches on the proper jag,that is all that is required for a cleanup. I absolutely love the stuff. Luckily a couple of gallons came home with me before my final discharge. --- SAWMAN
