I'll 3rd Mobil 1. Been running it in ARs and H&Ks. Good stuff. A qt. will last ya forever. Only drawback, where to install the oil light.

I'm another Mobil 1 guy. Been using it on all my guns for years and have never had a problem...

Mobil1, interesting! I guess if it's good enough for 10,000 mile oil changes it's gotta be good for slides too.

All the Mobil 1 responders seem to be from southern states. How does it work in cold temps? My cousin swears by dry graphite. I worry about its retention in place. Cold weather lube input please. Preferably from someone who knows...

One more Mobil 1 user here. Use it on heavy contact parts. Ed's Red during cleaning takes care of the rest.

Indeed. If you use Mobil 1, you can go 8,000 miles before you have to lube the gun again.

It's synthetic, it is made to flow and work in sub-temperatures as well.

I use AMSOIL synthetic as well as Mobile 1 and Fluid Film as my primary gun lube/protectant.

"AMSOIL is specifically engineered to function under rigorous conditions and extreme temperatures. For example, since AMSOIL contains no waxy contaminants, it will flow readily at very low temperatures resulting in easier starting and almost instant lubrication in cold weather. AMSOIL 100% Synthetic 10W-40 and 10W-30 Motor Oils have pour points of -60ºF and -76ºF, which give them actual service temperatures of -50ºF and -66ºF!

Also, AMSOIL Synthetic Oil molecules are of uniform size and shape so there are no lighter portions to oxidize and cause the oil to thicken. Because there are no waxes or contaminants in synthetic oils, the pour points of AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants will vary little over their service life. AMSOIL Synthetics are also blended with a higher degree of lubricity. This means they are extra slippery. By markedly reducing friction and wear, AMSOIL makes it possible for critical, moving metal parts to last longer."
