I have had superb luck with the both regular old G96 & their new CLP. MPRO7 LPX works great as does Weapon Shield. These newer synthetic ester lubes work like a dream.
The oil-type lubes I mostly use are either FP10 (gift) or Militec-1 (because I split a case of it with another instructor back when it was just being released, and was rather inexpensive).
I'll use Breakfree (commercial formulation) for quick & dirty short term cleaning & lube if I'm not at my own bench or have one of my armorer kits along with me.
I've got some Weapon Shield sitting somewhere.
I use a couple greases, as well.
I keep meaning to pick up a tin (or bottle) of Eezox again someday, as I had decent luck with a can I bought when it was first released.
I'm not averse to trying much of whatever might be new for T&E on the bench at my former agency's range ... depending.
They're always trying new stuff.
I keep a very old can of RemOil around for door hinges (if I can't find the WD-40), but I don't have much use for it, otherwise.
