I've recently started using Lubriplate SFL-0 grease in my real firearms. Lubriplate is a synthetic, non-toxic, tempature resistant grease used for lubricating food service equipment. This grease works great in my real USP 45.

Can someone from KWA advise if any of the contents in this:

...would react badly with the KWA USP guns?

Apart from diarrhea or trouble breathing, I'm wondering if it might be too thick for a GBB application.  You should really use pure silicone oil.  30wt shock oil, cheap and effective.

I partly ask as I'm not feeling the silicone oil love with my Mk23. No matter how much SO I slather in there the slide still feels "gritty." And the SO wicks all over the place and makes a mess. Lubriplate stays where you put it. And I have a big tub of Lubriplate that cost much less per ounce than any silicone shank oil I purchased in the past. And, if it works with the KWA guns, I only have to keep one product on hand.

The slide probably feels gritty because you need to clean it out and re-lube.  See here: http://kwausa.com/fo...?showtopic=3111
and here: http://kwausa.com/fo...?showtopic=3157

That said, I think that the grease would be too viscous for the gun which would cause cycling problems.  If you use it, please let us know your results.

Done and done. Slide still isn't as smooth as my Tactical and Match USPs. It works, but not to the level I'm used to with my KWA GBBs

I'm willing to try Lubriplate on my KWA gun, but I would like to know if any of the "ingredients" are incompatible with the KWA components.

I'm not too worried about the viscosity as the tolerances on a real USP are tighter than on the KWA guns. And I would do a lighter application than than on the RS gun.
