Opinions on the "best" lubes vary as much as "best" guns or "best" brand threads....
That said however, I blend my own gun oil/lube and have for years. ATF fluid is great and is one of my main ingredients.
I have a Springer loaded 1911 that is park'd and the finish responds to basically any oil/lube but ATF fluid is great on it too.
So I actually try it (or have/do use it).
Here is my mixture blend by the way:
I use this oil blend exclusively on all my pistols and rifles.
80% - Mobil 1 synthetic (5w-30)
10% - Marvel Mystery Oil
10% - Dextron VI ATF
