Don't forget motor oil(car oil). Works great and for $2 to $7(regular to synthetic) and you have enough in 1 quart to last you and all your shooting buddies. Doesn't burn off by gun's heat, won't freeze up in the firing pin/spring action, cleans easily, has additives for no-rust and carbon deposits, and can get in different weights for anybody's preference and always available close by without going to any gun store. Get in same weight as what you use for your vehicle and you have some oil to top up your motor, until next oil change. Just get a small plunger or bulb type surenge(sp) for light injection purposes. Works great, and won't attack blueing or matte finishes. Just remember that a little bit goes a long way.

I use rig grease on a rag and wipe it off,then i buffed it with 3m buffing compound and light lube like rig grease wipe on then wipe it off then I used hbn white graphite I use it also to coat bullets like molly but better mix it in rubbing alcohol and spread it on bolt and receiver then wipe it off very slick and has no oil to catch dirt and carbon first time I used I was skeptical till I put over 300 round in it and no problems thanks to the 4h kids it didn't take long then did the same thing two weeks later then I cleaned it I use this for rimfire sporter with not one problem with the fire arm

I remember reading somewhere of a 10/22 guru who swears by the dry teflon lube. Being that it is dry it doesnt attract all the carbon etc and makes for easier cleaning. And as teflons one of the slipperiest solids you can get, it perfomms excellent. However im yet to find some so can say that for myself. Im sure its available online though.
