    Weaponshield. All I use now. I clean with it and then lube with a few drops more after I wipe everything down. Great stuff.

    Why spend mega dollars on high end specialty lubes?
    A good high temp wheel bearing grease costs about $3.00.. tub lasts a lifetime.

    Maybe, maybe not...I'd rather spend a few extra bux and get the piece of mind that you're buying a product developed, tested for, and used on firearms.

    Militec1 and yes there is a heat treatment used to bake it on. Once done correctly it makes cleaning a piece of cake. Once they have had the treatment you can simply clean and lube in one step with Gunzilla.

    Another vote for WeaponShield but I also use a little TW25B on the rails.

    I've used CLP for the longest time. Then I've used Zero Friction for the slide rails.....now it's pretty much Gunzilla for everything. I couldn't vote in the poll for the choices available.

    No worries wih Militec-1 if you follow their directions and heat the metal up after applying it. Takes a little longer, but once trated water runs off like Rain X on a window and your slide will be slippery as butter.

    Lube

    I use X-1R grease and oil on my personal guns as well as the batch of range rentals I care for.
    X-1R Shooter Pack

    I also use cheap hardware store Silicone spray for exterior protection, especially on guns in the shop that are for sale and get handled repeatedly. For storage of my stuff in the safe, I use Gun Seal:

    If it slides, it gets grease. If it rotates, it gets oil.

    I stripped my new Ruger SP101 down all the way and cleaned each part with alcohol. Sprayed all the parts with Eezox and let it dry. Buffed lightly and put it all back together.

    Feels like It had an action job.

    Would use either Eezox or Gunzilla on my pistols as they are both fantastic products. IMHO.

    Been using the same can of Remington gun oil with Teflon for years. I spray a small patch and whip down the areas that need it.
