for all steel guns? I have heard conflicting reports from educated sources, and figured this would be the perfect place to get a large sample size of responses. On one hand...I hear people say you need to use a lot of lube in the rails to reduce friction in order to make them wear slow. On the other hand...on a very extensive write up from a gun smith that my dad had me read..he said it was best to just use a dab. Basically he said that if you use a lot, it will attract a lot of particals and fowl which, over time, will cause the rails to wear FASTER due to them riding over the gunk time and time again. One of the examples he gave was a Colt Government that had over 60k rounds through it, and he said was still tighter than most brand new 1911s. So, what say you? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
