In the military from 1974-2014 with M16 and M9 being my issues weapons. Only oil ever issued was LSA and later CLP in small plastic bottles found in the weapon cleaning kit. I still use CLP today to clean my weapons, though it is getting harder to find.

Found this info. Good read. Talks about dri-slide and being "tested" during vietnam. According to this article, the Marines used it and Army did not.

Yes...... Thanks for the info!
Now I know Dri-slide was tested in 1966.

Are you able to order what you want from lubritek?

No i wasnt. Im really not after the lube. I mix my own oil and for firearms that require grease I use grease. What I am after is the actual oil applicator. Which would have been the container with the "thumb" pump with a long needle on it.
When I talked to dri-slide, the guy said they quit making those in the late 70s early 80s and moved to a solid metal container with a needle on it. He said the container with the thumb pump was alittle to big and "hard to store" for military when transporting in field. So they didnt last long. He also mentioned that the thumb pump applicator was never sold to the public.
It was a government only product, so it would have been sold at a government auction to get into the hands of civilians.
I have a few different bottles with different needles on them to oil pistols and such, but this particular one I thought was very neat and would be good for reaching hard places and you could control the amount of oil you apply better.
Also, I just enjoy collecting odd ball military things. Since this is something that isnt common, I would like to have one to use, and collect.

Im not to much concerned about the lubrication. I am more after the applicator.

Ok................. Brownells sells empty applicators.
You might try places like "Uline" and other places like that...........

Did you ask the guy where they bought their applicators?

Since that is what you are after?

My friend bought his from a old military surplus store that isnt in business anymore and got it about 30 years ago.
I have a few different applicators and have tried Uline. but cant seem to find one that is like this.

What I meant was Call your source at Dry-slide and ask him:

".......Found Dri-Slide company and phone number. Called and talked to them. The guy knew what i was talking about....................But atleast i know they made them and since i know of one out there, there has to be more........"

Good luck in your search!
