Grease

I recently started using high temp grease from the auto parts store. Seems to work great.

tw25b for any and all parts where you have friction points or exposure surfaces. it does it all as an LP (mc2500 oil is TW25B oil). and their MC25 cleaner is the C.

I've been doing that with my rifles for the last 3 years and I also use oil. Works very well. No problems.

Unless I'm doing long term storage I typically use:

Friction Defense xtreme gun oil

I have found just about any gun lube is fine. The key with gun oil is making sure the right spots are oiled. I have never seen much difference between brands- oil the right spots gun runs no further thought needed. I am still using the same four ounce bottle of militec I was given as a free sample while in Iraq 7 years ago. I shoot a lot ( over 10k a year in reloads and another 5k in factory) and have no desire to search high and low for the greatest wiz bang lube. My guns run fine no matter what I use.

I think, as was said of ketchup (that most of the profit from which came from what was thrown away), most of the lubricant used is wasted. A little goes a long way, at least with GLOCKs. I've switched to needle oilers for all my applications. And I've tried a bunch. I can find no difference among the ones I've tried, from Mobil 1 to FP-10 to Break Free to Militec to NYOil to Friction Defense to Hoppe's to TW-25B... The list is endless.

Someone mentioned Slide Glide but didn't specify whether it was Brian Enos' Slide Guide. Out of curiosity I bought a couple of tubes from him but haven't tried it yet. I was wondering if anyone has used it. His instructions seem to run counter to everything I've read about lubing Glock pistols. Anyone wanting to read more about the claims should go to brianenos.com.

Is there a "Glock recommended" lubricant/cleaner. I seem to recall reading that CLP was recommended, but haven't been able to confirm that.

Glocks don't really care what you use

My current choice as well. It's a little weird putting everything back together with very little visible lube, but it works like a dream. It's about as non-toxic as they come, and I'm sure someone has already mentioned that it's edible.

It's worth a shot, but it's a little pricey.

I used Breakfree CLP for 15 years before I found FP-10 and now use Weaponshield. George is a great guy to deal with and really knows his **** about lubricity. Seeing I have several Sigs Slideglide is great for rails and I've been using the same small tub for at least six years.

Hoppes elite for general lube and all polymer pistols and 1911s, and bolt rifles.

Shooters Choice gun grease or lithium grease on SIG rails.

Slip 2000 for any evil black rifles I may or may not have.
