There's a thousand good products out there. For instance, anything from ProShot will do as billed, IMO.I also like G-96 and Ballistol.

ProGold is a nice grease, as is STOS, and so is white lithium from the auto store. I've gone a whole bird hunting season with Zebco reel grease on decent O/Us and SxSs w/o a problem. That and whatever gun oil we happened to have around. But the guns were cleaned and lubed after every trip out.

Superlube and Remoil in my standby kits? Sure. Lucas Gun Oil. Yes, very nice. As is Pro Shot's Zero Friction. One nice thing about the Lucas ... it's red, you can see where it's going and how it's adhering.

The secrets, IMO: Clean your gun and change out your lube for fresh. Inspect every now and then and wipe 'em down. Lube but don't slather.

I think we often overthink it fairly often. I know. I've tried about 50 percent of the world's gun products. In a pinch, you can get by with a can of WD-40 and a bottle of 3-in-1. My preferred daily products? No, but I've seen 'em work.

Well said. IMO almost all lubrication related problems with firearms are due to lack of lubrication than what type/brand of lubrication.

For decades I used a simple product like Hoppes No. 9 oil that I believe is simply mineral oil and never had problems as long as the firearm was lubed and not dry or nearly dry in critical areas that need lubrication and a check was done every single time before I needed to use a firearm.

Of course modern synthetic products do not run dry near as fast as the older lubricants.

My only problem with tw25b is availability. I had one small sample that I picked up at the NRA Convention in Charlotte,NC a few years back and thought it was great stuff while it lasted. Nobody in this area seems to carry it, though.

See if your favorite was one tested here. If you do, I think you'll find it an interesting read.

Also, the measured wear test was conducted at normal room temps. Pretty interesting, and I for one wish there were more tests of a similar nature available for us to compare lubes.

I'm definitely in the CLP group, being a cleaner & lubricant. Several gun smiths got me into it. That said, I also use other lubes from rem-oil, to ACF-50 which comes from aviation anti-corrosion industry! Not cheap but great lube as well.

Yes indeed, but how many lube threads can one forum stand?

Militec 1 is the best for me. Great on my p226, the grease stays in place, and the oil makes everything feel like satin. Awesome stuff!
