    I've been using Militec-1 on most everything. Shot in the barrel on my 700 with it and it's amazing how little fouling build up I see. The ARs and 10/22s will run hundreds of rounds without any additional lube. The auto-loading pistols get a touch of high temp synthetic grease on the slide contact points.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    I took a look at this page GrantCunningham.com - Library suggest by marcclarke , His reasoning made some pretty good sense so I figured I'd give it a shot. I looked for places to buy his two suggested lubricants, they were hard to find in small quantities, so I ended up getting a kit from lubrikit.com.

I got tired of trying to keep shirt fuzz and/or pocket lint from collecting on oiled or greased surfaces. Dry lubes solved that problem and the gun seems to run cleaner for longer when I do take it out to the ranges.

    i use Fireclean. Fireclean has one ofthe highest smoke points of any lubricant ive seen . it bonds to metal and actually repels carbon. its amazing on an AR.

    Slide Glide on all of mine. It stays put after you heat up the barrel and slide when firing 200-250 rounds in just a few minutes. It does not attract dust or flying matter. Of course shooting clean ammo with any lube helps.

    I've used Slip EWL, Militec 1 and Tetra Grease extensively and a small sample of Froglube. I can say, without any doubt, that Slip EWL is one of the most effective lubes I've used. It lasts a very long time compared to many others that would have disappeared much, much sooner. I use it on everything from my AR's to Glocks and 1911's.

    The best stuff out there, in my opinion. It does an excellent job and separating the dirt and grit from the metal. I shoot a lot of ammo during training, with infrequent cleanings, in dirty, wet and dusty environments.

    There's a good article in SWAT by Pat Rogers of EAG Tactical as well.

    Here's Pat Rogers's comparison of CLP and Slip. On this site is his Filthy 14 review, which mentions Slip, and other posts he's made about Slip.

    Put me on the Frog Lube group. Heat the parts with a blow dryer for best results. A fine cleaner and a fine lube. I did a complete clean and used the Frog Lube on all parts including the gun body. It prevents rust and prevents dirt clinging into a nasty goo. Slicker than snot and smells Minty instead of like old oil. Firing the gun heats the Frog Lube and it can weep a tiny bit which is not a problem. I had bought the full kit but I like the paste best. The liquid I only use in parts I just can't reach. The paste will melt and run were you need it under heat.
