Which lubricant do you use?

Which gun lubricant do you use? I am looking for one that's non-toxic and anti-corrosion.

I have been using BreakFree CLP for cleaning and then LP for preservation.

Mil-Comm TW25b for handgun slide and frame rails, as well as the cocking mechanism on my P7. SLiP 2000 Gun Lube for everything else on handguns, and S2K EWL on my AR.

This. I use milcomm on my glock trigger connector and a bit on my bcg on my ar15s. I also use slip 2000 ewl on all my firearms and Mpro7 works good as well

I used Breakfree CLP for a long time (it was free), I recently ran out and bought some Slip 2000 EWL.

I use Lubriplate #105 Engine Assembly Lube for grease.

I think the EWL does hang around longer than the Breakfree.

Being we only use a few drops to begin with I've never seen a big difference, if any, in anything I've ever tried. So I figure If Mobil one is good enough for the Harley it's plenty good enough for the Glock or anyone of my other pistols or rifles. Glad to report all pistols, rifles and shotguns are all running smoothly without any unusual signs of wear. Even my M1 garand and SKS seem to like it.

I've used it exclusively on my 26 and my 32, and neither of them have had any malfunctions through several hundred rounds.

Could be coincidence, or not. Don't know, don't care, I'll keep using it :-D

I though that would be post #2.

I use the Ballistol as well. After a few cleanings you get a long term coating that makes cleaning easier.

Lately I've been using WeaponShield as both a cleaner/lube. It seems to work well. For slide rails and contact points I use a little grease - either WS, Militec, or TetraGun - whatever my hand picks up. No preference in the grease. I've used EEZOX in the past. I like it, but a got the WS with real good deal for a 16oz container. It's enough to last me a couple of years. No reason to further experiment until I run out.

WS has a lot going for it. It's been years since it or its predecessor have been given much attention but there was a time when it was extremely popular, and with good reason. As a lube, in tests it performs extremely well. For protection, I did my own tests years ago with its predecessor, the old FP-10 (not the current formulation being made today) and it was phenomenal. It has no sovent in it and is pretty much non-toxic (although I wouldn't recommend ingesting it in any way) and yet it works well as a cleaner (I usually start with MPro-7 or Hoppe's non-toxic solvent and finish with WS). It even smells good.

As for Eezox, it too performed phenomenally in my rust test (extremely well). But in my past research efforts, it reportedly did not perform well as a lube, is toxic, smells horrible and even leaves some question as to whether or not its formulation is that which is extremely protective against corrosion, yet could actually cause micro-fissures in metal...I forget the details and am not going to look again for them(anyone can do that for themselves). As a protectant, I'm sort of on the fence with Eezox. As a lube, I know there is much better out there.

As for the WS grease, I've been using that lately and like it a lot better than Shooter's Choice which seems to dry out like old toothpaste if you leave it on there for too long without use. WS grease is less thick and performs extremely well. I usually apply it and WS oil, both on the rails.

Lucas gun oil. I find it at automotive or farm supply stores around here. At least one gun dealer I know of keeps a display rack of it on the counter.

Been using it for years. Never had a problem with it.

All my semi autos are alloy framed Sigs. I use either white lithium or Hoppes gun grease on the rails and CLP for corrosion protection.

I really prefer grease for the slide rails. It doesn't cook off as fast and stays in place while the gun is being carried/stored.

After trying all sorts of cleaners/lubes and getting stuck in a Hickock45 YouTube Video black hole for an afternoon, I decided to try out Ballistol. I really like it.

I'm still holding onto my Hoppes No. 9 and Hoppes Copper Solvent. As I finish off the non-Ballistol products, I'm not going to replace them.

Slide-Glide on rails & Slip 2000 EWL everywhere else

As for non-toxic lubes, try FrogLube
