Snake Oil is painstaking made from the finest quality snakes (not to mention hard to find, since we're by the beach).  We select them by intelligence, appearance, and attitude.  The spelling bee segment of the competition is especially fierce, most of them didn't do well.  Ssss seems to be the only thing any of them can spell, it's not even a word.  Some of them just rattle rattle.

Snake Oil is a weapons grade lube made specifically for AR15/M16 family of firearms, and a collaboration between CherryBalmz and Forward Controls Design.  Snake Oil's bottle is reusable, and so is the horse hair bristle brush with aluminum handle that comes with it.

Snake Oil is optimized for center fire rifles and handguns.  Snake Oil is a lightweight grease with a consistency of about an NLGI #0, which is roughly the consistency of a mayonnaise, only creamy and stringy - excellent for application and staying put in unsealed, sliding systems.

What you get out of a bottle of this grease is roughly 30,000 rounds of shooting, with unmatched reliability - the little bottle will cover about $15,000 in shooting. It is extremely efficient.

One application provides 5-10x more shooting over any gun oil, in the harshest environments - a gun which may normally start experiencing malfunctions at 300-400 rounds commonly gets 4000+ rounds without a single friction-related malfunction with our lubricants. Until someone experiences this, it's genuinely hard for them to internalize just how much more reliable their guns can be. And should be.

The difference is especially stark with finicky guns - as long as ammo and magazines are good, we find that about 95% of malfunctions are friction related, and nothing lowers friction in a gun better than our lubricants. You will notice an instant and substantial reliability enhancement - this is especially appreciated by shooters of tight, highly accurate 1911s, and guns of a rougher make.  

As a grease, our Snake Oil stays wet and stay put. If you lube your firearm with Snake Oil, you can come back a year later and find it right where you applied it, as wet as the day you put it there on the friction surfaces. These same properties keep it in place over the course of firing cases of rounds of ammo.

An in depth interview with Dallas Frohrib of Cherry Balmz provides a great deal of info on Black Rifle Balm, on which our Snake Oil is based:

From late 2021, there's a larger size bottle with twice the volume (0.5oz of the original vs. 1oz of the new thicc size) but without twice the cost.  We should run for office.

Snake Oil is a firearms lubricant, use only as directed.  Do not lube your pet snake, snakes don't need or want to be lubed.
Keep out of reach of children.
Do not ingest, not for internal use.
Keep away from eyes.
