gun lubricant
 
Hi, I read where anti seize is a good lubricant for stainless steel. I applied
this on the slide action of my stainless steel pistol and noticed the gun became
much smoother and the slide action was easier to pull. What I'm curious about
is this a good lubricant to prevent any galling of the moving parts on my
pistol.

For stainless steel, I prefer Rig Lube +P. It works so well that it doubles as a resizing lube for rifle cases.

I've been using Mobil One on all my handguns for years. It's works well and I've never seen any wear at all...

Mobil One as in the official oil of NASCAR?

I usually use Rem Oil and Rem Dri-Lube :)

Yup, that's the one. It stays where you put it, has great heat resistance and I'm still on the same quart I bought years ago. I've used in on stainless, carbon steel, aluminum, and poly guns and it's worked well for me. I keep a small squeeze bottle of it in my range bag as well...

Sounds like a good thing then. I get the little $2 squeeze bottles of Rem Oil and use them to wipe down the surfaces of my guns and when I disassemble and clean I use the Dri-Lube for lubrication. That stuff makes the 10/22 action SMOOOOOTH.

Glad to hear that

I thought about using a synthetic car oil also. I just never heard of anyone
using it. I have a quart bottle of synthetic air cooled oil that was left over
before I had to park the harley for good. I'm going to try that out. I know
on the engine of the harley it made a world of difference. I to am a Air Force
veteran. I also wore the Army and Navy uniforms but did all my active duty
with the Air Force, the others were drilling reserves. Seven years ago I was
permanently classified as a 100% disabled veteran from a injury that occurred
back in 77 in the Air Force. I just diidn't realize it was a degenerative injury
when I was younger. For that reason I carry a concealed weapon as I have
personally found out that disabled folks as myself are targets for many of the
punks we have in our society these days.

Anti-seize is outstanding and it stops galling too. AGI recommends it, and there's another product out that I've been reading up on..Eezox..this stuff is UNREAL..MidwayUSA carries it and I checked on Brownell's site too but they don't carry it for some reason. U can also check out there site..google "eezox" and it'll take u there...

I've been using NanoLube. I also like Gunslick anhydrous graphite grease but it's hard to find.
