I have been using Lubriplate FMO-AW out of a syringe on my 1911 this year. I don't notice a difference between other oils really other than that it makes the slide move very smoothly. I started using it based on this article:

http://www.grantcunningham.com/lubricants101.html

Edit: The article also recommends a lubriplate grease for sliding parts. I tried it but use oil for everything because it is easier and I don't see any problems caused by it. Some friends who also shoot high volume say that ATF with STP mixed in as Cunningham recommends works great.

I used to use FrogLube for all my firearms. Nowadays, I use RemOil. It is better than the previous.
