I use 30w non detergent motor oil or tetra gun grease for lube depending on on use and need. My ccw guns get grease as I don't want oil leaking into my clothing.

I have seen plenty of L (Lube) recipes from folks, including straight mobile one. Most of these posts don't address any attempt to P.
Sorry for the confusion. I had posted this topic in seveal locations (they have since been merged here) I hoped to explain that if you posted in one of my threads you didnt need to post in the other threads on the same topic I had posted on other pages. Post up as many times as you like. And yes Im focusing on "P" protecting guns, tools, autos, fishing, etc from rust so Im interested in rust inhibitors more than I am lubes or cleaners.

Yes, when I merged threads it tried to merge posts in the same thread. I'm still doing some cleanup

I've found that most synthetic motor oils provide plenty of the "P" as well as the "L". They may not be as well suited to the cleaning duties directly, but I have found that cleanup seems pretty fast with a good solvent like Hoppes or Shooters Choice, if the gun had synthetic oil on it before shooting.

I use standard 'gun oil' or '3-in-1' oil.

Based on posts and PM’s here and on other sites where I made the same request, I begun to generate a list of the rust inhibitors that I will secure for this evaluation. The product list thus far is. In no particular order

G96 CLP

Eezox gun care

M-Pro 7

Gun Slick Gun Seal Rust preventative

Breakfree CLP

Frog Lube

Ballistol

Birchwood Casey Barricade

Rem oil (with Moistureguard)

Rem oil (regular)

Shooters Choice Rust Prevent

Strike Hold

Viking tactics Rand CLP

Hornady One Shot Gun Cleaner & Dry Lube

Clenzoil

WD-40 (blue and yellow can)

WD-40 specialist Corrosion inhibitor

Fluid Fill Rust and corrosion protection

MILTECH-1

Hoppe’s Lubricating oil (with weatherguard)

Hoppe’s MDL (Moisture Displacing Lubricant)

Hoppe’s Elite gun oil

3-In-One oil

Pennzoil synthetic oil

Im sure the list will grow. Additional suggestions welcomed

Time to break out the credit card. Based on web searches, the shipping on some of this stuff is nearly as high as the product itself. This may end up costing a small fortune but I will have a lifetime supply of gun care products when Im finished.
