Mil- comm tw25b, hands down the best IMO. A little goes a LONG way and has proven great against rust in my experience. They may send a free sample to you if you shoot them an email.

Does it work for a light coating? I dont like taking 30 minutes to clean grease out of everything.

Your welcome.

Yes, you are actually instructed to only just a tiny tiny bit. To remove an alcohol based cleaner and cotton swab takes only 10 seconds. There is an offical video on YouTube about their products and how to properly use them.
Let me know what you think after using it.

Right now I'm using electric tool grease. I like it because it's very thin but also stays in place very well. Never tried Mil-Comm products before.

In the summertime months, I use white lithium grease and the cold winter months I use a light oil on mine..............

I second the recommendation for Mil-Comm. Grease, oil, cleaner, and lock lube. There are a lot that are close, but for me, so far, this one wins.

(I have no association with the company or the people ... I'm just a happy user.)

The Mil-Comm stuff is rated to some ridiculous spec ... like -90f to +450 and maintains standard viscosity ... no need to change for the seasons.

They also are big supporters of the military, NRA, and many firearm interest groups.
