I swear by slipstream weapon lube. Sometimes I'll use hoppes 9 as well but my rifle and handguns get a good slipstream treatment on all the rails and moving parts on a regular basis. Haven't had any problems with it gumming up either

If you use Brake Cleaner, be sure it is the Non-Chlorinated variety which is safe for plastics.

Here's a 'Lubrication 101' article by Grant Cunningham that gives a good pro & con of different types of lubrication. He's not trying to sell any particular brand & pretty well leaves it up to the reader what will work best or him.

Good point, but I am pretty sure my front right inside wheel bearing is doing more sliding than rotating at the moment

I'd suggest that most bearings rotate at a significantly higher rpm than the pins in the vast majority of firearms.

I've been using this grease less spray... It's actually a lubricant and cleaner. It's called safari charlie gun lube, have any of you used it yet? it has some pretty good reviews:

Just pointing out a good spray alternative in case you are interested.

For those who have used it, let me know what you think!
