After seeing the amount of crud built up, even brass shavings in firing pin channels over the years I will not use oil/grease on a firing pin or striker. If I feel I must have some lubrication, I use Sentry Solutions dry lube,

When you clean your AR, how black is the oil on the firing pin? After just 50 rounds it is nasty. After 250 rounds, it will get very gummy. Not good for reliability

There is no need to treat an AR like the military does and pour a quart of CLP in the lower. Use grease on the high friction area and oil in low friction area.

The two best I have found are....

FrogLube. best CLP on the market and it smells good so you can clean your guns in the house. http://froglube.com/FL13/root13b.htm

Silver Bullet Gun Oil (SBGO)(To piss off muslims) 13% pig fat. http://www.silverbulletgunoil.net/SBGO_Production.html I use this on my Class III and this stuff is amazing. Get your gun hot enough and it smalls like bacon too..... (Just Kidding)

Thanks for the experience. I didn't even think of dry lube. Fantastic idea.

ATF cleans while you sleep. Takes soot

with it when you wipe it off. Then just apply

some more ATF.
