Pay attention to these points with whatever brand of machine oil you prefer and you shouldn't have a problem:

I would disagree on one point. The firing pin should be DRY.

I cvan't imagine using grease on a gun.

There are a couple of Hi-Teck greases like Shooter's Choice(The pink stuff in the syringe") that are okay for slide rails and locking lugs, but it just stands my teeth on edge to go to a match and watch someone just "fill up" the action with lubriplate or even axle grease.

i just use 30w motor oil on the carrier i dip a finger in the oil and rub it on the carrier then reassemble cycle the rifle a few times and it gets everywhere needed.

if you lube according to the military manual you will have jams and failures.

using machine oil or gun oil isnt going to work that well under heavy use since heat rapidly destroys most machine oils and all gun oils. motor oil has a very high threashold of thermal breakdown and running even full auto its not going anywhere. after a few shots you might not have wasted time using a light machine/gun oil as its all pretty much evaporated due to thermal break down and your rifle is now dry as a bone.

i use gun oil cleaners like clp for cleaning and storage. using a gun its motor oil. grease is used when the weather drops below freezing.

i use grease on ccw guns so it doesnt leak into my clothes.

i learned about the properties of motor oil in firearms when i was running a m60 in the military. i also learned taht the manual is pretty much wrong on how to lube a AR15/M16

whatever you use it doesnt take a lot and dripping wet is just as bad as dry.

I'm a big fan of RemOil for general cleaning and Slip2000 EWL for desired extra-slipperiness...on all my guns.

Normally I would agree (glock for instance) but I've always been taught to lightly oil the pin in the ar.
Do you know something I don't?
