I have been using Extreme Weapons Lube but recently have started using Froglube. EWL works well, but don't have enough time on FrogLube yet to make a fair evaluation. You do need to heat the parts before applying FrogLube for it to work effectively.
Hi-temp auto or wheel bearing grease. Grease is superior IMO because it will not drip off. Amazing lubricant that you can pick up for around 5 bucks at any Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts, etc., and it will be enough to last your life.
I've recently gone over to FrogLube. I've done a detail strip of each pistol with the solvent, and then applied the CLP in place of "regular" oil/lube. I also did the "apply with heat" schtick on a 1911....and I find that on that particular pistol, carbon fouling wipes off as if it was still hot - even when I deliberately waited 24 hours between firing and cleaning to see if applying with heat makes a difference.
