Default Which Gun Lubes / Oils do you use...

Curious as to which type of gun lubes and oils the membership uses to maintain their firearms both when in use and when stored away in their safes...

================================================== =

I myself use Frog Lube and Breakfree CLP to keep my firearms operating and for short term storage in my safe(s).

I'm also a fan of the Break Free CLP and have been using Bore Snake "Venom" as a final wipe down and finish up with a light coat of Birchwood Casey Barricade for rust protection.

Recently switched to Frog Lube and will never look at another product again......EVER. I have some amazing before after pictures on a cerakoted gun that really show how well it works. Shows things you simply won't see on a stock black gun.

I use Italian Gun Grease,and I swear by it! I know we all have the "best one" but this one ended my long search for a superior lubricant.Every firearm I've used it on has had great improvement in long lasting lubrication,and it doesn't take much,a little goes a long way.Check it out,here is a link:

I use Gunzilla for general cleaning and lubing, and a tiny amount of Gun Butter on slides.

I use whatever i have handy. Rem oil is often around as the spray can is convenient, clp is an old standby and it's easy to drop one of the small squeeze bottles in the range bag. I've used motor oil in the past, when i had nothing else, and couldn't tell the difference between it and any high tech expensive lube. I do like Slide glide grease for handgun slides and M1 actions, but again, i think i like the name and the handy little containers it comes in, bearing grease from the local big box seems to work just as well.

I'm easy, if it's slippery and not water based, it's good to go
