I do...and I can't understand the lack of apparent lack of use by people here. I've tried lots of different lube/protectants and WS is my go to. I guess it isn't the flavor of the month these days though.

Whatever I happen to lay hands on.
Mostly Breakfree LP, and Rigg grease, though I have a ton of other stuff.

Ballistol

I was a Militec-1 guy.
But switched to non-toxic Ballistol.

I'm hardly picky about the type of lube I use in my Glocks.. For my 1911 on the other hand it gets the Brian Enos Slide Glide lite for the slide and whatever oil for the small rotating parts.

I have always been a militec guy, but now I want to try Ballistol, I like the non toxic part.

Also, Ezzox for long term storage is great.

http://eezox.com/


"Gunzilla BC-10" It was developed to reduce weapon malfunctions for soldiers and law enforcement. It is also formulated to remove the hazardous chemical exposure associated with many gun cleaners. Gunzilla is made from plants and contains no water and no petroleum. It is safer and more effective than most gun cleaners, and can be used on everything from small handguns and high powered automatic weapons to 16" guns. (My favorite overall CLP)
http://www.gunzilla.us


"Gunbutter" It is for all types of metal-to-metal, metal-to-plastic, and plastic-to-plastic mechanisms’. Our lubrication reduces galling and wear, provides two-year rust protection that extends the service life of your favorite recreational mechanical device. Gun Butter Oil is not grease; its oil will resists change and perform consistently below -20 degrees to over 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Our complete all-weather lubricant will not burn up or evaporate in summer’s heat; it functions normally in freezing weather, stays intact during pouring rain, and repels debris.
In operational use Gun Butter’s unsurpassed smoothness and consistency is unparalleled due to its longevity and ease of function. Your mechanism has continued performance assured because Gun Butter’s adhesion exceeds the film-strength of molybdenum grease. (My favorite lubricant)
http://www.gunbutter.com/
I treat all my pistols with Eezox then use Gun Butter on the rails. I used to have a Nano that I treated with Eezox and the difference was amazing. So much smoother when you rack the slide. It was a huge improvement.

EEZOX stinks. If you read the label, it actually says you are supposed to use it in a fume hood.

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.
