Is this something that might work?
Ok, so I was reading up on various different lubrication compounds, looking for something I have around the house to use as a possible temporary lubricant for my SR40c, and figured out that Rain-X is essentially just a silicone oil...
My question is this: Would it be a bad idea to use Rain-X for a temporary lubricant/sealant for my pistol, not on the inside of the barrel?

Silicone doesn't work well at all as a gun lubricant, which is why I don't think anyone markets an actual silicone gun lube.
In addition, Rain-X is very thin and wouldn't work very well or very long.
I'd suspect that your gun would suffer some damage with Rain-X as a lube.

Step 1: Pull the oil dipstick out of your car/truck.
Step 2: Let oil from dipstick drip on necessary areas of gun.
Step 3: Shoot gun, have fun.
