    What gun lube do you use?

    I've read that some people use synthetic motor oil for lube on hteir guns. I've used a number of different products over the years. Hoppes, Break Free etc. What do you use for both pistols and revolvers?

    I read a post on another forum about the mobil 1. They were raving about the results.

    That's what I've read too. It sounds like it really works well and doesn't smell like some of the other lubes which is a plus. Don't want to smell like hoppes while CCW

    I use, depending on the gun, CLP or Wilson's Grease.

    For cleaning I use, again, depending upon the gun, CLP, Green Stuff or Hoppes.

    Militec-1. Best lube/conditioner out there IMO. Free sample was what got me hooked and have never looked back.

    Me too. All of my guns get a Militec 1 treatment. In addition the rails get a daub of TW25b. Heavy wear areas also get a film of oil, either Hoppes or Zero Friction. If all that doesn't work, I don't know what will.

    Militec-1 grease and lube.

    Also, or members of Military they will send product for free to those folks in field.

    This product designed for dry conditions, i.e. like those conditions at Iraq or Afghanistan. Not designed for Vietnam conditions.

    Why not allow Militec company to compete for govt contracts?

    Militec-1 Military Documents- Congress / DLA - Army - Navy - Marine

    I am not affiliated with Miltec in anyway other than as a customer.

    I do appreciate their unconditional support of our troops.
    Glock 33 .357 SIG plus .40 S&W barrel for most of practice. Keep loaded with .357 SIG hollow point for home protection.

    RugerLCP .380 equipped with Crimson Trace for everyday carry.

    I'm not familiar with TW25b. What is it?

    By the way, I love the H&K "Squeeze-Cocker." I have wanted one of those for years.

    Weapon shield oil and Lubriplate white all purpose grease.

    Sometimes even a little sewing machine oil. Thin and high quality.

    I have only used shooters choice (sample)it was in the case when I purchased the Kimber since then I have used Gunslick Ultra-lube.

    I purchased a new gun cleaning kit and went with the Gunslick brand I really like the product.
