    Black Peerless Cuffs

    Just bought two new sets of the black peerless cuffs, After a hard rain and being on a perfussly sweeting BG, they have a bit of a rust tint to them. Anyone have any good ways to clean and relubercate these. ( i hear that this is a common issue with the black cuffs if not tended to regulary when they are in alot of use )

    Peerless are known for rusting. Its do to the black metal that they are made out of. Only thing you can really do is clean them with an oil type lubricant. However next time your in the rain and they are in the elements they will rust again. Thats just how peerless are.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Got 'em, I use Rem Oil and one of the green kitchen scrubbies.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    use a NEVR-DULL to get the rust off, if your concerned about the finish, just reblue them with gun blue. My gunsmith who also repairs my cuffs, uses AMSOIL I think thats how it's spelled for a lubricant, it works great. Hope that helps.

    I don't know if this is true or not, but I heard that you shouldn't ever use graphite powder on cuffs because it will cake the inner workings on the cuffs and over time will shorten their life. As for oil you can use standard gun oil which will work BUT DO NOT USE WD-40. WD 40 is a synthetic oil that has some chemicals that will break down the inner workings of the cuffs springs or pins and will foul them. Same as the reason why you don't use WD 40 on a gun...

    Again, I don't know if this is true or not, but its just what I have heard

    Really? I work with a guy and we were just talking about WD-40 on cuffs the other day. He said he sprayed it on a pair of his last year and they've worked great ever since, no rust either. Can anybody else comment on this?

    this all seems like a lot of work for a set of handcuffs. i have a set of smith and wessons, and a set of the asp cuffs, and ive never done anything to them other than put them on and take them off of criminals, and they work just fine.

    I have been told the same thing by my father. He has worked with metals his whole life, I have no reason to doubt him. It is not all metals, just spring steels and high carbons, I believe.

    for thee, My Lord, for thee,

    I have Hiatts and the new ASP cuffs. Same as you I don't do a thing to them.

    Thanks for the all the info, I will have to try some out and see how it goes. I friend of mine has had a pair of asp cuffs, said he got rid of them becuase he was trying to put them on in a struggle and the single bar slide on the out side of the double bars instead of inbetween. I have never heard of that elsewhere, anyone else ever hear of that with the asp cuffs?
