Humm, let me see, "light lube" a generic answer would be gun oil..but very little one or two drops.
If that is what you're asking. Remember if you can't find your answer here Goggle and u tube can be helpful.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Think you have seen a pattern here

Basically any light machine or motor oil will do the job. Just a couple of things to consider, the lube should be of sufficient weight to stay put and not run off but not so heavy to attract dirt and gum up...5W-30 works fine. Also no detergents or other additives....just plain oil. Cane's mixture is fine as both are oils and the mystery oil penetrates the metal better than plain engine oil. I have actually tried that and the slide on my 1911 feels like its running on ball bearings...super smooth.

Don't be taken in by the marketing hype of the gun lube makers, you'll pay $5 for 1oz of gun lube when a $5 quart of Mobil 1 will last a decade.

I use Fluid Film on my guns, someone here on the forum was giving out some samples awhile back. Also JD did a corrosion test with the stuff and it was great!!

Free sample lube for a nube?

Looks like you got your answer, get it free off your dipstick! No shipping costs either...

You do use good oil in your car, right?
