I would hope that this lubricant will eventually be made available to the public….

It sounds great. DSL, developed by engineers at the U.S. Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, or ARDEC, uses a dry surface treatment that’s applied during the manufacturing process and has the potential to improve performance on any number of small arms while decreasing maintenance, according to an Army press release.
