    Need lube suggestions

    I'm going to the range in the morning to shoot my new AR. What do you all use on the bolt? Please no Gunzilla comments.

    Just about any decent lube on the market today... Pat Rogers (EAG Tactical; lots of his writeups on ARs and maintaining them in SWAT magazine) is fond of Slip 2000. If you take his course, at some point he'll pull out his bottle of Vagisil and lube his carbine with it, just to prove a point... run 'em wet.

    Slip 2000 is really great stuff. I know the troopers in Alaska use it on their M-4's now. Doesn't freeze up.

    rem oil works well. clp works well. just about any oil will do. motor oil will work well. don't over think this, just put some oil on it and shoot it.

    Weaponshield is another really great friction reducing lube. Better than FP-10 Google it & buy some.

    Very interesting point about Hoppes. I wonder how many other cleaners/solvents have the same affect. It would be heartbreaking to pull a fine firearm out of the locker to find the chrome flakiing and peeling.

    I keep a bottle of CLP handy. The spray version works great and keeps the bolt cycling just fine.

    Personally? I use Rem-oil on all my firearms. Never had any problems and its a teflon type of lube. If its 110* or -15*, it works.
