    I recently tried Gunzilla and now that is the only thing I use. Made a big difference on ease of cleaning and my guns work very smoothly.

    It's Zero Friction for me, but I'm expecting my Gunzilla to be delivered 'today'...we'll see how that stuff works.

    When I was in Iraq, I had some good success with a tube of graphite powder. The dust didn't stick to it and gum it up during the times that it went without cleaning. Normally the more Tri-Flow on my semi-autos the better though. The revolver gets very little of anything.

    Put me down for Gunzilla, too...

    I still like machine oil for most applications.

    Break Free CLP never let me down. Of course it does have to be reapplied more often than grease.

    I do use TW25b for certain spots within the trigger assembly.
