I have a friend who has one i found out. It has says "Dri-Slide Applicator". Its in a silver metal can with a black top and the needle is silver as well. The label is white with red lettering.
A google search of it doesnt show what im after. I found several metal cans but none that has the hand pump with the long needle

Found Dri-Slide company and phone number. Called and talked to them. The guy knew what i was talking about. He said that they didnt market that type of oiler to the commerical side. It was government only. He said they used this stuff during vietnam and forward untill 2002 when they switched to CLP. Dri-slide outsourced some of their work out so different companies were making the same stuff. Again, this is what the person was telling me. But atleast i know they made them and since i know of one out there, there has to be more.

Sir:
I'm glad you found what you were looking for!

I'll be interested in you posting your find!

That said, I first joined the US Army in 1987 and we either used CLP or LSA.
I have not seen or heard what it is you have there.

But I'm willing to learn........... and learn something new every day!

Gentlemen, Dri-Slide is basically molybdenum disulfide suspended in a carrier. The carrier evaporates and leaves a coating of molybdenum disulfide on the parts. Reportedly, Dri-Slide was sent to troops in VN by friends and family members but I never heard of it being acquired and issued by the government for small arms usage but I could be wrong. Also, it could have been acquired for usages other than small arms. I personally have some issues with the concept of a dry lubricant when it comes to firearms - especially M16's or M4's. The best way I know to keep a DI weapon functioning is to keep it "wet" with lubricant so that the carbon does not harden on the BCG. Keeping the carbon is suspension is the way to go.

could find no record of government procurement - it is still used in hi quality springer air guns for internal piston lubrication - still have the can + needle that i got with my Weihrauch HW 50 back in the early 80's - it would leave a giant mess if used in firing mechanism or action parts of a firearm - also the graphite is very corrosive + galling if used on aluminum [ doubt that it would be authorized for use on m16's with the aluminum upper + receiver + etc. ] -

schutzen-jager, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is a silvery black solid that looks a lot like graphite but it isn't graphite. It is relatively unreactive.

schutzen-jager, The data you posted is obviously the data contained on the MSDS for Dri-Slide. There is one problem with using MSDS data when it comes to understanding the chemical compostiion of a product - MSDS's only are required to contain hazardous materials which may be contained in the product. Otherwise, the manufacturer would be required to provide their formulation which might be proprietary so many chemicals are missing from MSDS's. Take what you read on MSDS's as only a partial story of chemical composition.
