While we were checking out all the latest and greatest Condor Outdoor Products and Condor Elite combat/tactical clothing and gear at SHOT Show 2017, Chris Dunn of Condor Outdoor Products, Condor Elite and Covered 6 showed us the new Condor/Covered 6 fu-bar (also written FU-BAR) all-natural, organic all-in-one gun/weapons lube (lubricant)/cleaner/protect, sunscreen (SPF-15 with 94% UVB blockage), bug/insect (mosquito) repellant, and antibacterial emollient skin moisturizer/deodorant. FU-BAR is apparently all natural and bio-safe, and DefenseReview (DR) was told you can even safely ingest (i.e., eat) the stuff (see our video below), although we’re certainly not suggesting or recommending that the reader/end-user do that (eat it). We’re simply reporting what we were told.
Bottom line, fu-bar is designed to replace “all those bottles in your truck” (gun/weapons lube, suncreen bug repellant, etc.) when you hit the gun/shooting range. fu-bar’s development took about 6 months working with chemists and natural, organic products experts. “We got a product that we think is awesome, and we’ve never seen anything like it on the market”, says Dunn.
DR’s curious to see just how well fu-bar works as a gun lube/cleaner/protectant under adverse combat-type conditions at high round count, including on select-fire/full-auto guns (assault rifles/carbines/SBR’s and machine guns), and we’re particularly interested in finding out whether or not fu-bar measure’s up to DR writer/contributor and chief new-product tester Jeff Gurwitch’s and FERFRANS’ respective exacting and taxing standards. Gurwitch is both an assaulter/operator and 3-Gunner, and runs his guns hard. And, Ferfrans currently makes our favorite select-fire/full-auto 5.56mm NATO (5.56x45mm NATO) AR carbines and SBR’s/PDW’s (Short Barreled Rifles/Personal Defense Weapons), bar none, and their guns are designed to be run on full-auto at very high round count, day-in and day-out.
In the meantime, Defense Review is cautiously optimistic that Condor/Covered 6 fu-bar miracle oil/lube will prove to be every bit as effective in all the above areas, exactly as Mr. Dunn claimed and outlined at SHOT. If it does, fu-bar’s truly a miracle product, of sorts. We shall see.
Editor’s Note: fu-bar should be going into production as this article goes to print, according to what Dunn told us in the video we shot at SHOT (see below).
