Probably shouldn't respond.....oh well.

In my pea brain,the "oiling" of most firearms that are being used(vs longterm storage),fall in the category of "total loss systems".IOW's....you put the oil in "here"...and it runs out,"there".There are exceptions and these involve "seals".If the lube point/part has a seal,for oil retention.....then its not total loss.No seal,total loss.Back to regular programming.

Ballistol!!

It cleans and lubes, is safe for wood grips, is bio-degradable and non-toxic.

I've used it solely for years now on my firearms and archery gear.

One thing I learned when it comes to grease OR oil - less is almost always better. I think most firearms come from the factory over greased (Rugers come to mind)

BTW, I recommend field stripping and thoroughly cleaning and lubricating all firearms prior to your first firing. New or used. You will acquaint yourself with the gun better and in the case of used firearms (new too), may find a defect that would render the firearm dangerous to fire.

Oil or Grease? I don't think it really matters that much...maybe in real cold weather, with a picky gun, the grease might get gummy or something but otherwise, I'd say anyhing from the most expensive stuff you can buy to the dripings off a dip-stick will work.

I just bought a tube of Mobil 1 Synthetic Grease. It looks just like the Brian Enos Slide- Guide stuff that iv'e been using for greasing my 1911 Rails etc.? I am going to try it the very next cleaning of my 1911 gun. Iv'e been reading on other forums about the Mobil 1 Grease,? And others love it.
