    When I used to ride offroad motorbikes we all switched from lubricating our chains with oil to using spray wax, which is sold specifically for the purpose and gained notoriety several years ago. We found that it lasted longer, and more importantly, did not gather as much dirt on the chain and sprockets.

    Recently I decided to stop using my Remington spray lube on my Walther, mostly because I found it really attracts lint and dirt. I found "DuPont Teflon Multi-Use Dry Wax Lubricant" at Lowe's for $4.98 (11 oz.). For my last cleaning after a trip to the range, I broke the gun down, stripped all the oil out with degreaser, and lubed the whole thing with the wax spray, and it seems to be working very nicely, and not attracting dust or lint. Plus it smells nice for some reason. I haven't shot with it yet. Does anyone else have any experience with this stuff?

    I use that exact product you named on my bike and motorcycle chains for the reason you quoted. For that it works great.

    That said I would not use it on my firearm.

    Fire a letter off to the Walther folks. I'd bet they have done studies on about anything. Ask them if they've ever considered this product. Inquiring minds want to know.
