This is a discussion on best gun cleaner/ lubricant?

I found the recipe for "Ed's Red" and was curious about it, so glad this was included. It seems a reasonable "home brew" to use. I also have heard of folks using white lithium grease (as from AutoZone) for rail lubricant in pistols.

I'm not sold on the "cleaner/lubricant" aspect of any product. Cleaners are solvent of some sort and remove dirt residue and "lubricants." I use Gunzilla and appreciate the no-smell aspect, but I still apply a light touch of lubricant to critical points (rails, etc.) because I want to knwo the last thing applied was meant to lubricate, not remove libricants.
Also, I have no favorite products. I use everything from Mobil-1 to el cheapo Outers products. I can proclaim that a light wipe down of my firearms with Outers gun oil protected them for over 20 years of storage in a gun case in a closet. That's a pretty good endorsement in my mind. So find something that meets YOUR needs and stick with it--until you find something you like better.
