    AR Bolt lubrication

    I finally got to shoot my M&P AR 15 I picked up this last December, before they became temporarily excinct in my area. I had a great time running some rounds through it, and when I got to cleaning it up, I found that all I had around was either Tetra gun oil or Tetra grease. I use the grease on certain points when lubricating my pistols. I did some googling and saw that some prefer oiling, and others greasing. I'm curious, when it comes to the bolt, which method does everyone prefer? feel free to expand on the whys and what fors, if so inclined.

    Here's a good article by Pat Rogers. yes, he's fond of the Slip 2000 products, but pay attention to the message without getting wrapped up in the specific product. The point is to run the AR wet where it needs it.

    As for the specific lube, well, nearly anything will do...

    Stick with grease. Any high temp auto bearing grease is just fine.
    I use autozone brand high temp grease. Just a couple of dollars for a 1 lb can. Both for glocks, and AR.

    When I had AR's I used nothing but CLP. Never a problem.
    I like all kinds of foreign guns.

    I don't always use missiles, but when I do it's the Minuteman III LGM-30G
