In you humble but very accurate opinion:) what would you believe is the best gun oil? Dan Wesson recommends High-quality gun oil such as FP-10, Militec-1 or Dan Wesson Rail Lube. I don't know what that is. They do not recommend CLP. I have been using Weapon Shield that says it meets MILL-L-634600, whatever that is.

I've been using the Tetra products for about the last year, and I've been pretty happy. I use the grease just about anywhere where there will be serious friction, and the oil in places where there will be lighter friction. I can certainly feel the difference in the slide action after lubing it up.

I also have used the grease on my Glock triggers, and it has had a very noticeable effect in the smoothness and weight of the trigger. I think it's almost the equivalent of doing the buff job, but even easier and there's really no way to screw it up.

The only problem with the Tetra stuff is it settles, so I have to spend a minute or two needing the grease before I can use it.

M-Pro-7 along with a tiny bit of grease on some pistols.

Just about anything at a quality gun store will work as good as anything else. There are a few items that are not good for plastic. Spend a minute and read the label.

Shot placement is everything.

Mobil 1
For many years I've drained the remnants of oil from the quart bottles after an at home oil change into a small oil can with a squirter stem and used that oil for many things around the house, including general exterior oiling of firearms. For trigger & hammer mechs I fill a small needle stem oiler with the same Mobil 1.
Have never had an issue with it. it works as well as any other oil out there.

Breakfree CLP. Good enough for me in the USMC; good enough for me now. Or Mobil 1. Or just about anything really. It doesn't master what lube you use; it just matters that you use something to lube your firearm.

I use my home brew 50/50 mix of Marvel Mystery Oil and Mobil 1 Synthetic 5w-20w. I have been using the same batch for over 6 years with zero problems. BTW, my guns are MUCH easier to clean than the previous CLP I used. Also it doesn't dry up or get gummy like some lubes do over time. YMMV :image035:

I certainly would be comfortable using Mobil 1 (or Amsoil, which is killer stuff), though I'd probly use a mid-weight oil like 10w-30.

If I did use M1, I'd use their synthetic grease at major friction points like the slide rails.

I used Amsoil grease on my old M 1 and on my match M 1A and a lite coat will do you.

Have used Weapon Shield to lube and Tetra Grease for the slides of all my handguns, going on about eight years now.
I've nothing bad to say of this combination. Once the Tetra grease is finally gone (a little goes a very long way), I'll likely go back to whatever is in the garage,
Won't see me switching from Weapon Shield, though. I swear by it. Again, a little goes a long, long way.

Geez, I hate to sound stupid, but I use vaseline on all of my guns on and around the slide and basically as a rust preventative.

I use frog lube on everything except my DW 1911. Frog lube resulted in failure to return to battery so I use the DW oil. Never a problem since the switch.

LOL I bet Dan Wesson recommends we all use Dan Wesson rail lube!

I've used Hoppes No 9 Lubricating Oil most of my life. At least as long as I can remember. I buy it in the squeeze bottle and the precision lubricator. I use it on knife joints too.

Ive used Rem Oil spray in the past too.
