Default Lubricating after using balistol

I plan on cleaning a 1911 (kimber tle stainless) w/ Balistol. Is it recommend to lubricate after the cleaning is done. Appreciate any tips / thoughts.

There is I believe a nice stickie on cleaning, lubing a 1911 already in the forum. Do a search.
But to answer your question, Yes. I myself use a synthetic oil ;-) the slide will rack like a dream
