Currently I am using either Wilson UltimaLube or the 10-8 Lube. Both have worked fine thus far. Any other suggestions/opinions?

I'm using TW25B or FP10 on 1911s and Slip 2000 on ARs. I'd like to hear from the smiffs as well...

It is off the market unfortunately but my favorite (as long as I can make mine last) is Berryhills Ultimate Lube.
Those that bought it when they could know what I mean. Slick stuff. Reminds me of the lube that GM used to pack with steering gear repair parts. I used to have to wash my hands half way through a steering gear rebuild so I could hold the tools. The stuff is so bad (I.e. good) you couldn't grip the punches, hammers and wrenches tight enough to do any work with them. For grins I used to have my apprentices rub some on their fingers and thumb and hand them a screwdriver so they had to grip the blade...and watch the amazement as the screwdriver hit the floor before they knew they had it....Much fun.
Dave's grease was (is) that good. :!:

i use whatever i grab that's closest to me when cleaning. Wilson, Militec, Slide-Glide, FP-10 or Brown, though i don't use Slide-Glide in the winter/colder months.

Well, I've used all the above and keep going back to one...Bob Marvel Custom Oil. I also get it in grease form from the supplier and it is wonderful. It will take a gun that simply will not work, like my buddies AR platform gun after a lot of rounds, and make it sing once again...

But, when I'm fitting a stainless slide to frame, I use ProShot Choke Tube Lube to prevent that infernal galling... ;)

On the sear/hammer engagement area I use brownells action lube and it works very well and lasts a long time.

Respectfully,



nice little tidbit of info to store in the memory bank :)

Weapon Shield, FP-10, and most recently trying some Gunzilla. I know some people recommend grease for "sliding" parts and oil for "rotating" parts, but although I've tried some of the recommended greases for the slide rails, I keep coming back to oil for everything on a 1911. :) (Except for a tad of grease on the sear/disconnector to hold them together when reassembling.)
