    Wondering if anyone uses grease instead of oil on the connector? I realize the manual says oil but I noticed that Glock used some type of grease on my connector when I got it back from warranty service.

    Might try some of the copper anti-seize grease in that area.

    BTW, im using Breakfree CLP for the oil. I like it a lot but can't say i've tried much else (other than Hoppe's gun oil which I found had too high a viscosity and made a bit of a mess).

    I’ve used 3-in-one oil, Singer sewing machine oil, motor oil. Doesn’t really matter much.

    What does your owners manual tell you. I would go with that, first.
    I`ve seen people use white lithium many times.

    Yes I have been using TW-25b grease for years on my Glocks. No problems at all.

    I use the same product for years on my Glock pistols and other firearms. Easy to dispense and stays in place. I just ordered another dispenser last night. The previous one lasted for at least 5 years. Don't need very much. Enjoy and be safe.

    I use a 50/50 mix of 20w50 synthetic motor oil and synthetic atf. Smells but seems to make cleaning easyer

    I use Wilson Combat Ultima II lube for all my pistols.
    It's sort of a cross between grease and oil... like a heavy oil...
    Stays put better than oil, but not as thick as grease.
    Highly recommend it!

    I used either slip 2000 oil, TW25, or Geiselle Very Thin Grease... All work fine..

    Yes.

    Grease the connector....it stays in place longer.

    Mil Comm TW25 is my preferred grease.

    They also make a semi-solid [their words] oil-grease MC3000.

    Yeah. I started using Lucas grease with my Sig. I had never used grease before, but Sig recommended it so, what the heck. Since then, I've been using it on the rails of all my alloy-framed pistols.

    I use Break-Free CLP. I have used a bit of left over Mobil1 5w-20 in the past but now have switched to CLP exclusively.

    I use this for basically everything. AR's still see some Mobile 1 on the bolts, but this does just about everything else.

    Yep, when I was into Glocks I would use Super Lube Synthetic Grease sparingly where the connector and trigger bar interact with one another, and on every single one of my other firearms where parts interact with one another, e.g., FCG components, and also on slide/frame rails and bolt/bolt carriers where a thin oils have a habit of dissipating too quickly.

    In my experience the Super Lube grease stays put, unlike oils that bleed off everywhere only to attract unburnt powder residue, the mixture of which then acts as a lapping compound inside your firearm.

    I transfer from the product from it's container to a fine point plastic syringe, which gives me the ability to dispense the grease in very small amounts with pinpoint accuracy to avoid mess and over lubrication:

    Valvoline Synthetic Wheel Bearing grease. Built to withstand way more than any gun part could ever put out. Apply with a toothpick. Already setting on my automotive shelf so free for gun use just like the Mobile 1 oil.

    Wow thanks everyone!

    anyone know what grease Glock might have used. It’s thin white with a light blueish tint.
