Nothing better than Gunzilla.... you can throw everything else away...
I have never tried Gunzilla
I don't understand what lubrication would be for. I use oil to clean the residue from the solvents after scrubbing but the oil isn't for lubrication.
I have a "no-scrub" sponge that I spray with WD-40 to wipe fingerprints off my gun after handling them, after showing them to people and to wipe down guns every month.
no problems, no rust and no fouling for 21 years!

I know because it happened to me during a USPSC shoot, if it happens during an emergency, I would almost guarantee it will ruin your day. During a gun fight there is no sound louder than "click"
I use Tribilogic <sp> Synthetic machine oil. If you use this stuff you will think you slide is floating on the rails.

i'm always trying different products,last time i used Hoppes Elite Cleaner (which i liked alot) to clean the gun and then lubed w/ homemade lube-
2-parts Mobil 1 full synthetic
1-part dexron transmission fluid
1-part STP oil treatment
mix all together and i think you have a decent lube!
Was using Miltec-1 for the longest until a friend of mine turned me to Slip 2000. It's like bahter (butter) in a bottle.
Never seen an action move so smoothly and lasts.
The demo was clean and lube weapon, go to range, fire 1000 rounds, return home, DO NOT CLEAN, 30 days later return to range and another 1000 rounds flawlessly through weapon. I'm sold!
