    Which gun lubricant do you use? I am looking for one that's non-toxic and anti-corrosion.

    I have been using BreakFree CLP for cleaning and then LP for preservation.

    Mil-Comm TW25b for handgun slide and frame rails, as well as the cocking mechanism on my P7. SLiP 2000 Gun Lube for everything else on handguns, and S2K EWL on my AR.

    I used Breakfree CLP for a long time (it was free), I recently ran out and bought some Slip 2000 EWL.

    I use Lubriplate #105 Engine Assembly Lube for grease.

    I think the EWL does hang around longer than the Breakfree.

    Lucas gun oil. I find it at automotive or farm supply stores around here. At least one gun dealer I know of keeps a display rack of it on the counter.

    Been using it for years. Never had a problem with it.

    All my semi autos are alloy framed Sigs. I use either white lithium or Hoppes gun grease on the rails and CLP for corrosion protection.

    I really prefer grease for the slide rails. It doesn't cook off as fast and stays in place while the gun is being carried/stored.

    After trying all sorts of cleaners/lubes and getting stuck in a Hickock45 YouTube Video black hole for an afternoon, I decided to try out Ballistol. I really like it.

    I'm still holding onto my Hoppes No. 9 and Hoppes Copper Solvent. As I finish off the non-Ballistol products, I'm not going to replace them.

    I use CLP for everything. It's not the best for cleaning, lubricating, or protecting. It does a decent job in all three areas though, and it's cheap and convenient.

    what you have is a good combination. there are alot of lubes on the market and they all perform well. lube choice is not as important as knowing how much and where to lube your pistol. but if you are just looking to try other products, Slip2000 is good stuff.
