Now, in addition to guns, optics and ammo, SIG SAUER has announced a new line of gun care products. Here’s their press release:

SIG SAUER Introduces SPEC1 Premium Firearm Care System

Newington, N.H. (November 29, 2018) – SIG SAUER is pleased to introduce SPEC1, a premium firearm care system, specially formulated for SIG SAUER by SLIP2000. SPEC1 is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, pure synthetic based lubricant with no Teflon™, silicones, or petroleum distillates.

“This partnership between SIG SAUER and SLIP2000 that has resulted in SPEC1 is a win for our consumers. For years SLIP2000 has been the lubricant of choice amongst our SIG SAUER Academy instructors and military units in the U.S. and around the world, because of the quality and performance of the product,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “It’s important to us that our consumers have easy access to the same products used by our instructors, and can have complete confidence in the lubricants and cleaners they are using on their firearms because it has earned the SIG SAUER name. The introduction of SPEC1 accomplishes all of these objectives to the benefit of our end user.”

The complete SPEC1 Premium Firearm Care System includes: synthetic gun lubricant, light gun grease, bore solvent, and gun degreaser. SPEC1 is formulated to reduce heat and wear, and to keep firearms running smoother and lasting longer. SPEC1 will not attract dust, dirt and sand, or feel sticky and tacky like most petroleum-based products on the market today. This synthetic lubricant will not dry up, freeze in cold temperatures, or allow carbon, copper, and plastic wad fouling to stick in the barrels or to gun parts. This non-toxic, non-hazardous formula is completely safe for the end user during application, cleaning, and firing.

“SLIP2000 is honored to be working with SIG SAUER, one of the world’s best firearms companies, to introduce SPEC1. We are also extremely proud that our lubricants earned the favor of the elite SIG SAUER Academy instructors through rigorous use and testing,” began Greg Conner, President, SLIP 2000 / SPS Marketing. “This partnership means that SPEC1 lubricant is now the official lubricant of the SIG SAUER Academy, and that all SIG SAUER firearms will be manufactured with the SPEC1 lubricant, and a product sample will ship with every SIG SAUER firearm. To earn the endorsement of SIG SAUER, and know they want to put their name on our lubricants and cleaners, is very exciting for our brand.”

  1. I wonder if you peel off the sticker it says “Fireclean.” Sure would be a great way to clear out old stock.

    All joking aside, I use Slip2k and love it. Seems to do what they say it’s supposed to do.

    I’m a side note, Robert said he’d write the occasional article for TTAG. Have I missed them? Don’t recall seeing any. Anybody know what he’s up to?

    • I switched to Slip2000 and have been extremely happy. I’ll stick with CLP cleaners as it has been good enough. Maybe I just like the smell of Ballistol.

    • Fireclean also did what it said it would do. So will any other oil in the world. The dishonest part is the claim that their particular kind of veg oil, presumably because its red(or whatever other color they chose), that insignificant change makes it somehow better. And the payoff for the deceiver comes when he can now get a gullible group to believe his story to the point where he can charge US 29.95 for 6 cents worth of veg oil.
      NOTE: Fireclean was not indicted, they broke no laws. They merely went bankrupt when their con game was exposed and their foolish followers wised up a little. And then doubled down by filing suit against the one who exposed them. Little wonder that went nowhere.
      I still wonder if that wasn’t another con game between Fireclean and their attorneys. It would be a good way to get all of Fireclean’s ill gotten gains into some other hands where the bilked consumers(presumably a trifle angry…) would never be able to recover them. And all it would require is a willing Law firm. Fireclean uses 100% of its assets on useless lawsuits, leaving nothing at the bankruptcy. The company then ceases existence and the Law firm and the CEOs split the take.
      Yeah, that doesn’t sound like a plot does it? It could be a Hollyweird blockbuster(if there was any such a thing remaining…other than Marvel Comics).

  2. “specially formulated for SIG SAUER by SLIP2000”

    Since it is not the same as SLIP2000, its either better and SLIP2000 is worse, or Sig’s version is worse than SLIP2000.

    Wonder which it is?

  3. First it was TW25b, then Lucas, now this.
    Sounds like a “money thing” to me.
    I use TW25b wherever metal touches metal.
    One gun has over 26,000 rounds on it and has barely any wear (P226 9mm)
    Staying with what works.

    • Whenever you have a hardened steel slide on an aluminum frame, it’s really helpful to use a lube like TW25b that really works well between the two surfaces. Sig is certainly not the only manufacturer who does this. Sig also exceedingly beautiful guns like the P226 X5. Nothing wrong with GLOCK reliability, but the guns themselves are a little dated.

        • Eh. Maybe so. I’m not inclined to use cheap stuff on expensive guns. Maybe I pay $50 / year on TW25B / Otis Ultrabore 085 and a few others – all of my guns, except one glitchy AR-10 build, run like champs.

        • I did a number of posts documenting the wear on a P228R through out shooting 10,000 rounds using that cheap wheel bearing lube. It was minimal.

          How many cycles does your car goes through with a grease like that, and how often it is replaced? A lot, and rarely.

          TBH most gun lubes and greases in particular are nothing special. That isn’t to say that there aren’t special lubes, I pay $30 a tube for Oxygen safe lube for breathing equipment. But guns don’t have any special requirements like that.

    • Yup, I save a lot of cash with my Glock. I don’t buy any of that fancy lube and cleaning crap, just slap a little fresh mud on my Glock whenever it’s looking a little dry and blow into the muzzle once in a while, usually (if I remember) with an empty chamber; wait, aren’t you supposed to pull the trigger to clean them? Knew I was forgetting something. I’ll be sure to do that next time.
      Just like the Eveready Bunny, it just keeps on running.
      [Except that darned striker and plastic striker channel liner that are intolerant of even one atom of dust and need to be cleaned out every 100 rounds or so and that also get stuck whenever they heat up after dumping a 33 round magazine].

  4. I’ve used Slip2000 for a while and found it to be an outstanding product. I’m certainly not willing to pay extra for it to say “Sig” on the label, but at least Sig Sauer is partnering with a good brand.

  5. Note: TW-25B or a like lubricant designed
    for stainless steel is recommended for “All
    Stainless” models, such as the P220 ST or
    P226 ST.
    (page 38 of Sig Owners Manual) I purchased my Sig in Aug of 2018.
    So I’m wondering is Slip2k, or Lucas for that matter, really a better product or is this simply a new money making sales ploy?
