View Full Version : TC Pre luber, are they still made?

12-20-2005, 01:32 PM
I have a TC tool made of plastic that screws onto a tube of TC lube. You would insert a Maxi Ball in one end and squeeze the lube on the bullet. Then use another bullet to push the lubed one out the opposite end and doing so would line up another bullet to be lubed.
My question is: I can't seem to locate them anymore and wondered if they are still made or does any one still make them?

My roommate mentioned these in the past and if they are available somewhere we would both like to get one.

I can't find them listed anywhere, either. I'll give them a call tomorrow and see if I have any luck. Maybe with all the inlines they aren't in demand any more. :holysheep

I got on the phone to TC, no joy there, out of production. BUT, the young lady on the phone suggested that I call next door to their custom shop, Fox Ridge Outfitters 1-800-243-4570. I got on the line with a gentleman in their retail store and HE said yes, they still have a very few left in .45 and in .54. SO, if you get on the horn quickly, you can still get yourself one.

Warm the lube to about 85-90 degrees before squeezing into the fitting, or the plastic parts will crack and part company. These are not high-stress pieces by any means.

Hey guys, I really appreciate the help. I have searched the websites etc and had no luck. I guess I better be making a call tomorow and see if I can get a .45 yet. Thanks again

Yep. I have a cracked .54 that I can make work by holding it together. Learned the hard way not to try and lube Maxis at the range in December. Best to pre-lube at home and then the pre-luber works great.

I use to make lubers for the TC Maxi-Balls. The body is walnut and it has a pump-piston reservoir. The cylinder is pvc pipe as it the lube chamber. There's an ejector plunger to push the bullet out after lubing. You pull the piston out of the device and squeeze your lube in the cylinder (I use TC bore butter) then insert the piston and a bullet and lube away. They come out nice, just like TC's photos. I got tired of doing it with my fingers and having a mess.

Try Jeff at flintlock4054@yahoo com . I got a 50 and 54 pre-luber from him a while back. Don't know if he still has any more. Tell him Emery sent you.
