Rig Lube +P for my stainless pistols. Doubles as a resizing lube for dificult cases. Grease can capture grit, but it also can form a barrier to such grit.

Buddy of mine bought a Kimber Desert Warrior and cleaned and lubed it with WD40 before I could get a hold of it. Worked fine, but I CLP'd after he shot it and laughed my a$$ off!

I use a grease called TW25B extreme performance synthetic lubricant on some of my firearms.

A little pricey, but it's good stuff.....

Ya know why it takes 500,000 sperm to fertlize one egg?



Being male, they will not read the directions.


MOST gun makers have instructions for the maintenance of what they make. Their are some points (and climates) for light oil. Some points for grease. Depends on WHAT gun, what part, what climate. Firearms we used in the interior of Alaska in January had very little lube at all. M1 Garands call for grease at several points.

No one answer. I did use a light bit of white lithium on the rails of my 1911s (before that horrible boating accident)

I use grease on the rails of my Kel Tec's. Otherwise I just use oil to lubricate and protect my guns. I use remoil on guns that are going to get cleaned often and outers on guns that are going in the safe.
