    Use of Weapon Grease vs. Oil

    Has anyone had experience using light weapon grease instead of oil in your carry piece. I've read that grease will last longer and be more dependable while carrying. What has been your experience, and is there a particular brand you like. Thanks!

    For the past several years I use CLP (Breakfree). The military uses it and most federal agencies use it. I have and personally dont use anything else.

    I am not a fan of rail grease, I use Millitec1 with great results. It bonds to the metal and soaks in, does not attract dust, dirt and/or lint. The grease does!

    I am far from an expert but I have known people who are. I use these products too. Soak them overnight. They stay in good condition for a long time. It's all I ever use now.

    I've been using CLP and just received a bottle of Militec 1 today and I'm looking forward to seeing how it works.

    I'm also a fan of gun butter.

    I did use Tetra but found problems with the SIG - the grease seemed to thicken and drag and collect crud - actually slowing the slide down - with std vel practice ammo it started to cause trouble.

    I now use Mobil 1 and or Militec1 and keep rails quite wet but no obvious surplus - this does the trick.

    I do tho use grease in some areas, barrel lug area for example - just not on rails any more. With main small parts internals - less is more - sparing use of oil.

    I used to use motor oil but it seemed to dissipate if the gun wasn't used for a while. I currently use remoil it seems to do a better job of sticking.

    I have heard that grease can get to thick in extreme cold and possibly cause a malfunction.

    Well I tried switching from CLP to Wilson Ultima lube grease for the rails on my 1911. All of a sudden I was having reliability troubles. Switched back to CLP and problems went away. Still use it on others parts where is stays put and works well but my rails are getting a weekly diet of CLP these days.

    I forgot to write that I used to use RemOil...then moved to CLP, now I use TW25B for lube and RemOil to prevent rust on blued weps...though the CLP is always in my range bag.
