    I use this

    I use this grease on my guns as well as a lot of high-mileage range rental guns:

    The "shooters pack". Lasts for quite a while. They're a local company, so we save shipping by picking up our orders, but I'd use it if I had to pay shipping anyway. Great stuff and good company to deal with.

    Yea, that dude was way out there with that one.

    Here is another good read from Cylinder & Slide that explains in detail what a 1911 and revolver need's for lube and why, long term storage, different times of the year, DIY oil/greese testing to see for yourself the results of a preticular oil you might want to use or check out with a little testing on your own.

    I have used Break Free CLP since 1988 exclusively. It's what we used in the Corps so I figure id it's good enough for that, it's good enough for me.

    Plus the smell brings back lots of memories from my USMC days, like Hoppes #9 does from my childhood.

    Yeah there's a reason WD40 doesn't work well as a lube. It's NOT a lube. It was designed as a water displacement formula. It's only got I think around 15% oil in it. The rest is actually a Solvent (made from mineral spirits among other things)! You can check the MSDS on the WD40 website. That's why I usually tell people NOT to use it as a lube. It's GREAT for cleaning though (compliments to the solvents).

    Dixie Gun Works sells a 'synthetic' whale oil. Don't know what it really is, but suspect it is menhaden oil. Anyway, it works really well as a lube, cleaner, rust preventer, and it doesn't dry out. I use it on black powder guns, but only once in a while on my pistols.
