Since my post in April, I've been using Wilson's Combat Ultima-Lube II grease on the frame rails of my SIGs, Glocks, a Beretta .22, a Bersa .380 and a Walther PPK/S and I've been very happy with it. It's not as messy as the other greases I've tried. I also bought some Ultima-Lube II "Universal", which is a type of thick oil or thin grease. I like it too. Both of these lubes really stick to the parts and keep them running slick. But the recommended temperature range of these lubes indicate they may not be the best choice for cold weather use.

For my SIGs, Shooter's Choice grease for the rails isn't too shabby either. Other than that I've used Slip 2000, TW25b, good ol' Hoppes No. 9 and Ballistol, Ballistol offers reasonable cleaning performance but where it really shines is the slick coating it leaves behind. I use it on the barrel, guide rod, recoil spring, and other action surfaces. For the rest of the pistol any reasonable quality gun oil would work.



I heard the military uses breakfree clp. Never used it in my life but I'm sure I'll get real familiar with it after Basic Training.

I got a Rusty's Rags pistol kit and it works great. I clean my barrels with Gunzilla and the rest with Rusty's Rags. Then I use a little Tetra grease where needed. Seems to to do the trick. I used Mill-Comm for a while because Sig sent it with my P229 but it appeared to come off when I started shooting. I really don't think there are to many bad cleaner/lubes on the market. It's just choosing what is agreeable with you and that it works well.

Mobil one synthetic bearing grease. A 1 pound can is $6.99 at autozone and it's every bit as good as any gun grease you can buy. It's a shame that the gun specific (marketed) greases on the market are so expensive for what you get. My tin of Mobil One grease will last me 20 years or more.

I was thinking about trying Lucas H.D. oil stabilizer....It's real thick like STP was almost like a honey We use it in the race cars & it withstands 8000 horse power & severe heat temperatures..

Only Lucas Gun Oil here.

I like Lucas products, and I use them in all my race cars, and muscle cars.

If their products are good enough for my 650hp/730tq BBF Torino, then you can be damn sure their gun oil will go in all my guns.

I've been using the FrogLube CLP stuff. I doubt it's the best, but I haven't had any problems with FTEs or FTFs.

Funny about the Mobile 1 grease. I carried the M249 SAW in the Army and carried a quart of Mobile 1 oil with me. When I was laying down suppressive fire and I noticed my gun running a little slow (cyclic rate of 700-900) I would pop the feed tray and pour a little Mobile 1 over the bolt carrier. She would hum after that. I had many accolades about how well my gun shot ... and those who know, know that the M249 was sort of a pain in the ...



But actually, I went to our local Honda shop and for $12 picked up a tube of 60% molybdemum disulfide grease ... the highest concentration I've been able to find. It makes my SP2022 feel as slippery as ice.

Oil it if it turns or pivots. Grease it if it slides.



Repeat as necessary. SIGs like it.

Count off, belly buttons, wonder lubes. After days of counting, we're still tied.



The good news is 20 years ago there was Hoppe's and Browning gun oil. Today, there are literally dozens of high quality oils and lubes.



My testing confirms though, none of them do much good if they remain in their original containers...

I have used Tetra for many years on 1911 rails and M1's. I have ordered a tube of the TW25B to use on a 226 and I may continue with the Tetra on the 2022.

I've been using this grease less spray... It's actually a lubricant and cleaner. It's called safari charlie gun lube, have any of you used it yet? it has some pretty good reviews:
Gun Lube - Safari Charlie
Just pointing out a good spray alternative in case you are interested.

For those who have used it, let me know what you think!

"Gunslick Graphite"

In the AR world, graphite products are discouraged on aluminum receivers..I believe there is a concern of some "bi-metal" action eroded the aluminum. I'd be especially careful and check it out since in most cases, you've got the aluminum alloy receiver under a stainless steel slide...dissimilar metals.

Again, AR boards have several warnings agaisnt mixing graphite and alloys. YMMV.
