    I have a question about the Colt, since this is the 1911 forum and all. It seems like I over lube the slide rails, I see pics of others 1911s here and they are PERFECT clean. As you can see in that pic, there is a little gunk that shows through. I use a lubricant spray to lube up the slide, and I wipe it out pretty good while trying to leave some of the lube there. Will this harm the gun in any way? The only reason I ask is because everyone elses is so clean and perfect and mine has the visible lube collecting and showing. I know common sense would say no, it wont harm a thing, but I am just making sure. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I believe that the 1911 should have been on top! :)

    It doesn't take much lube if everything is correct. 1 drop per rail is all I use.

    I never use oil on my rails. I want my lube in critical areas to stay where I put it. I use Shooters Choice or Wilson Combat grease. I apply it with a small thin watercolor brush and spread it very thin and evenly over the rails. Works great and does not run or dry up as lesser stuff does.
