    I use grease on the rails and oils elsewhere. However, I'm rethinking this. The other day I was shooting my Kimber 22 cal conversion on my 45 and had all kinds of problems. Cleaned the grease off and oiled the slides with REM oil and as if by magic all the problems disappeared. Same thing with my KEL-TEC P3-AT another day. The grease I had used was old.

    So I guess I will stick with oil everywhere on the pistol from now on. My very unscientific results convinced me that old grease = bad.

    A local gun shop here swears by Molybdenum Grease with Break Free. He applies the grease and a drop or two of BF on the slide rails. It seems to work okay so I do the same.

    We use Mil-Comm TW25B Grease & MC2500 Oil. We are very pleased with the way the grease and oil stay on when the gun heats up from shooting. Also, it doesn't seem to attract much residue as others.
