This is how I do it. Brian Enos Slide Glide and Breakfree.
Superlube makes great oil and grease in my opinion. Its not a harbor freight made product. But a handy place to buy it
Springs are frequent 1911 problem area. Slide stop.. extractors also. Loose barrel bushings can be an issue.. and the sear and tri spring can lead to a too heavy trigger pull for a 1911.
Pesky grip screw bushings need to be blue loctited when they loosten up.
And replace those recoil springs often.. especially on commander models.
CLP and wet is good for my Colts.
For 9mm I like the Hornady 115 XTP over 6.0 grains of Unique and Federal primers.
I use break free clp for lube. Run my 1911s wet for range use. Not oil dripping off every where. But enough on the rails, link, bushing drips down to trigger mechanism. I change out recoil springs often with standard style recoil springs too. 2,000 or so for 5 inch 45acp. Alloy frame approx same for commander. Officers model more often.
The Ronin 9mm 1911 finally shipped today. Got mags, holster, all kinda lube ready... I’m excited to shoot it!
FP-10, been tested on 1K ammo runs, still there and stays there
You won’t have that problem with the nitride slide. Use any quality oil. Once broken in, going to grease on the rails is a good option.
Ah...good to know. He assuredly won’t have galling
Break free clp the all around one!
