Break Free CLP is all I use. Works great, Hoppes #9 to clean.

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.

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

Which lube do you use?

Hoppe's Elite to clean

Rem Oil to lube

Tetra Gun Grease on slide rails

Have had no problems with any of my guns.

Whatever I happen to have handy. It's usually Break-Free, or Outers Gun Oil, but I've used 3 in 1, WD-40 and a dozen other things in a pinch.

I bought Safari charlie at a gun show, been using it for a few months. I like it. I use the spray to clean and the bottle to lube. You can get it at True Value Hardware stores.

I usually am not picky and just use what I find first, Hoppes, CLP, Rem oil, motor oil, tri-flow, 3-n-one etc. But I picked up a bottle of G96 Synthetic CLP Gun Oil at Bass Pro the other day. It meets the new MIL Spec 63460E requirement and smells good. It says it is 85% biodegradable, so I don't know if that makes it non-toxic, but it can't be all bad. I have only used it once, so I can't really comment on its performance yet... but it was... oily.

Here's their website if you are curious:http://www.g96.com/index.html

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

On my Glocks I always used to use nothing or whatever crap is first at hand. Never had a problem. Being a shooter of nothing but Glocks, a couple of revolvers, and milsurp rifles I never gave any thought to lube.

However, when I got an AR I looked into lubrication more seriously. I have Froglube and Slip 2000 EWL now. As I clean and re-lube guns they get one or the other.
