    Here's what you do: Place advertisements of all the "high-end" gun products in a row and ask your firearm to pick out which one it thinks is best. I bet it won't and even more, I bet it doesn't care as long as you clean and lube it with something.

    It took 4 pages, but I finally read the response I agree with.

    Froglube, lizard grease, or snake oil; it's all the same.

    Yes. This is like a thread on the best oil for your harley. It will never end.
    I used CLP onmy weapons in the Army from .45,9mm, m16,m4 M60 M240,M2 never had a problem used it at home on every weapon never a problem.
    Some years back Got tried of shooting life change a bit . Took a large pile of long guns and a few Handgun cleaned them with CLP put them away.
    First year I took them out cleaned them put them back. Got to bust and plain put them out of my mind. next thing you know ten years has gone by.
    Current events pushed me to do an inventory and check over what I had. I expected to find a mess. They were spotless.
    Never saw any reason for the fancy named expensive stuff. I have tried grease on Auto's rails it don't hurt anything. It is not an issue in winter .

    Yes, that is what many of us are saying. There's no need for "high end" lubricants. Just about anything will do, as long as you use it regularly.

    Rem Oil, Gunzilla, CLP, Breakfree are what I currently have in my arsenal. They all work just fine, but the Gunzilla seems to run cleaner than the rest.

    Ahhhh...a bit of Gunzilla for cleaning...and as a special treat for my Glocks, a "High Temp" wheel bearing grease from Wally World...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    "High End" Lubricants for your Carry Gun?

    I clean my polymer carry weapons with Gun Scrubber ( for synthetic frames ) and use synthetic oils on them as well. As far as my steel frame weapons I use Hoppes products all without issues.

    I don't know if you have heard of Hoppes, but that is what I use. Really high end stuff.
