I received two one ounce bottles of the All Temp Tactical Lube made by EmbyEnterprises.com. The pamphlet that came with the two bottles said that you’ll get up to 1000 shots without a single cleaning. I followed the directions that came with the product, which included letting the lubrication “set up” for a time period before its initial use. The bottles have a small brush application and reminded me of a bottle of M-new. The lube is like a thick paint consistency and is easy to put on large items such as bolt carriers, barrels and such, it’s easier with the small items to just get some on your hands and get the job done. One bottle will easily cover an AR system and a few pistols, but you will use a lot of the lube up on the bigger weapon systems.
The weapon systems work very well with the All Temp Tactical Lube and even after just a short time you can definitely tell the difference in small parts such as the trigger pull on a Glock pistol. The lube of course collected very light items such as lint, but this is expected with any paint like consistency. And since the lube is only applied to the friction points after the “set up” phase, this was minimal. The different weapons functioned flawlessly from pistols to brand new AR rifles. One bottle retails for about $40.00 according to their website and is supposed to last a full year. This would easily be true with several pistols and even with a rifle. The lube wiped off easily and certainly made certain parts such as the bolt and carrier easier to clean. All in all, the product is a good choice if you want something in a small and easy to carry package that is different from your usual gun sprays.

As a firearms instructor and armorer, it is not uncommon for various companies to send me samples of their own latest and greatest cleaning or lubrication products for evaluation and endorsement. I have had literally dozens of these products cross my workbench, some of which have worked extremely well, some which were mediocre, and others that aren’t worth the plastic bottle that contained them. After receiving the sample of All Temp Tactical Lube, I applied it to an M4 carbine on the contact surfaces of the bolt, bolt carrier, hammer and the fouling area on the rear of the bolt and the rear of the firing pin. After firing over 100 rounds through the weapon, I found that the Lube on the rear of the bolt had burned off (not unexpected) and the anticipated carbon buildup was present. What I didn’t expect, was how easy it was to clean the rear of the bolt by using only a stainless brush with no solvent. The rear of the firing pin was also protected by the lube and all carbon fouling wiped off with a dry cotton patch. The manufacturer, Emby Enterprises, claims that the All Temp Tactical Lube permeates the metal’s surface and embeds itself in the pores, creating a smooth, protected surface with reduced friction. The manufacturer, also states that a one-ounce bottle will last most shooters for a year, since the lube bonds with the metal on a molecular level, requiring less of the product to be applied after the initial coating. They also state that in dusty conditions, the lube can be applied to the weapon, allowed to bond with the metal and wiped off, leaving a thin film to maintain lubrication but not to attract dust. From the results of the testing of this product, the manufacturer’s claims were substantiated. The Lube performed well during firing and created a surface which made cleaning the normally stubborn carbon fouling, a breeze to accomplish. This lube will definitely be added to my list of weapons maintenance supplies.

We found the quality of the lubricant to be very good. The application and assimilation process was unique, but if allowed the proper time seemed to "bond" well to the firearms it was utilized on. The only concern was in the assimilation period, as it effectively "deadlined" the firearm until the process was complete. We were fairly stingy in the applications, so there was no trouble in wiping off the excess. We tested this on numerous different firearms, from shotguns to sub-guns, to handguns and found it to be versatile in its application. The lubricant also seems to deter build-up of dust, etc. which is very helpful when having "pool guns" that are in patrol cars day after day, suffering from the elements.
Overall, we found it to be a good overall lubricant that we would consider using as an agency.

The All Temp Tactical Lube is marketed as an anti-friction, rust preventative and anti-fouling lubricant. It is also reported to work from -35 to 350 degrees C. I was only able to test it at 28 to 86 degree F. It worked very well at both temperatures in my pistol and AR-15 rifle. Application is very easy, as the lube comes in a small bottle much like white-out or fingernail polish. There is a small brush built into the cap, so you can put the lube exactly where you want it. I first applied the lube to the wear areas on the slide and barrel of my pistol. Right away I noticed that it locked into battery much faster and easier than before. The same was true when applied to the bolt and wear areas of my AR-15 rifle. I also used this lube in the bolt cocking piece and firing pin of my sniper rifle and found it worked very well here also, as you can wipe it nearly clean and the lube still does its thing. This is very slick stuff. What I found that separated this lube from others, is that when I went to clean my weapons, the powder and carbon residue came off very easily, pretty much with just a cotton patch. The best example I can give is when I cleaned the bolt assembly of my AR-15 rifle, the area around the gas check rings had some built up carbon, the carbon came off with a cotton patch and now the bolt assembly looks like new. The lube also does not seem to affect the rifle and pistol blueing or finish. I recommend this product, finding no negative results.
