I read the reply where a shooter uses SuperLube but I haven't tested the stuff myself. Perhaps I'll lube my R9 with SuperLube deliberately getting a bit in front of the piston seal to see how badly it diesels. That's the same initial testing I did with the Krytox. My "playing around" usually occurs during the winter months when I don't do a lot of shooting so it will be a couple months before testing the SuperLube. is some "Dupont literature" concerning the various formulations of Krytox..........

There is also a cheaper version called Ultimox which is the European equivalent........
This formulation has an anticorrosion/antiwear additive like the Krytox GPL226 formula and it also works well but I prefer the plain Jane Dupont GPL205 without the additive.
A bit under $13 plus shipping for a small 20g container.

Here's what mine looked like when I used the stuff.........
