I've been using Jardines Extreme for my pistol frame/slide rails and I'm extremely happy with it. Real happy with it.
A little bit goes along way and it's not draggy like normal gun grease.

I'm kinda partial to Mobil 1 myself. I am somewhat disabled so I don't spend a ton of time out in the heat. It also helped my SKS run smoother than ever. I use Breakfree in the winter though and have never had an issue with it. I clean my guns once a week if I have not been shooting( if nothing else just a couple passes of the nylon brush anda quick wipe down) or after each shoot. I check the lube once to twice a week. Been a habit for a long time. Field experience taught me the lesson of keeping my guns clean always or as often as possible.

I use 15W-50 Mobil 1.

I have been using Brownell's Action lube plus for about 2 years now, I really like it. It has a Moly base and doesn't dry out. I was told in school (years ago) that Moly will work it's way into the steel, and provide a "permenent" lube, even when neglected. This stuff goes a long way, a little bit on a Q-tip, will lube an entire pistol.

I understand the Moly's do get into the steels structure and remain there for some time.

Brian Enos' Slide Glide for me. In my Baers, I use the "Lite". I keep a tub of the heavy stuff around to show my Glock buddies how much better their guns can run.
The stuff has been a real revelation for me, since I started using it a couple years ago. It ABSOLUTELY stays where I put it, never dries out and collects less debris than anything I've ever used.
I do not care for oil. Oil's job is to collect contaminants and I find that the better the oil, the better it does it's job.
For places where the Slide Glide is inappropriate (FP springs, leaf springs, etc), I use Mili-tec 1 metal conditioner. Also great stuff.

For years, I used the UltimaLube grease, from Wilson's Combat. I am now using the Militec-1 grease. As compared to oils, used in the right place these are tremendous products. They stay put, far better than any oil. They have good properties that keep a well-maintained gun in top condition. They don't attract a bad amount of crud, between cleanings. Hot weather or extended carrier? Grease, every time.
Anyone have anything negative to say about slide-glide?
