I will second motor oil in the mobil synthetic form. Used to use regular oil presynthetic days to keep my issue m60 (was made in the late 1960's) running like a sewing machine. Have always used motor oil for gun lube.
The only issue i have with grease is it doesnt lube the rest of the gun. Im basicly lazy by nature and dropping oil in the bcg from the ejection port is all i care to do.
Ive had mixed results running issued gun grease on m249, m60, mk19. Never had issues with grease on ar15 or m16 the few times ive tried it. Just more work than i cared for.
I will also second the pass on tactical stuff till you have used it asis a lot. Took me since about 1987 to now to figure out exactly what sort of addons i want heh
