Default Sig lube

What do you guys lube your sig with? I been using mobile 1 but now just started using white lithium grease on the rails because I just noticed some weird wear in the upper portion underside of the rails on the frame. Is that normal? And does anyone know of any better grease to use or should I just stick with oil and white lithium? Also could I use the same grease that is used for AR15 barrel nuts. Like aeroshell. I have a tub of it from autozone but im scared to use it on my sig. It might be so thick itll collect grime and make the wear marks worse.

I use the TW25 that Sig's comes with. Doesn't attract too much crud and lubes well. Also fairly inexpensive.

Use very little grease on the rails, if your SIG is very tight. Otherwise, oil will do. Don't grease the internals! I use Tetra grease from a little can, so I can apply it wth my finger, instead of squeezing it out. I use MPro7 products, but frankly, on most gun oils, there is a difference without distinction.

Less is more!

I would be concerned that grease on the slide could slow the action as well as attract grit which would also slow the action but add a sandpaper affect to wear things down faster.

I only use very small amount in drop of either Otis or a remington synthetic. One drop on each trigger spring. One drop on each slide rail and I watch the drop run from end to end. I add a few drops to barrel outside but wipe excess off after racking slide several times. I add 2 drops to recoil spring.

Brian Enos' Slide Glide on the rails and TW25 on everything else. There is an excellent stickie on SigTalk on how and where to lube your Sig. Everything I read and been told is that a Sig likes to run wet. Based on my limited experience I would tend to agree.

Three parts Mobil#1 5-30 and one part ATF (for rust) as oil. Hi-temp universal joint grease for grease. If it rolls i oil it, if it slides i grease it
