I prefer Wilsons Ultima Lube. It stays where you put it.
The Breakfree these days is crap........none for me
I use Militec-1 one on the barrel, slide rails, and shiny parts. And a dab of gun grease on the slide stop shaft and disconnector.
Why all the fuss about types and brands of lubes ? According to the vid above 1911's require no lube and run just fine without any at all.So, why worry about having the latest , greatest space age ,high tech, huckleberry kumquat,space shuttle rated lube ? **** it, I'm gonna run mine dry.
Yea,.....you do that. Bring your car over, we'll drain it's oil as well.
It will run without any,...........for a short time before **** hits the fan!
mobile 1 baby.
Royal Purple, Max Tuff engine assembly lube
This thread has gone completely off track.. I use good old fashioned Hoppes lubricating oil. I was just wondering if there were any key areas to pay special attention to when lubing.
Hoppe's #9 IS NOT A LUBE it is a bore cleaner!
Few people use even an oil like the Hoppes lube, on the rails of a 1911.
This is from Wilson Combat my friend

Excuse me, hoppes lubricating oil, I stand corrected.. but please explain why that's not good enough for a 1911? I've been using #9 solvent to clean and their oil to lubricate all of my guns since I was a kid and they seem to work for me. Am I behind the times or what?
Perfect. This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you much good sir.
A basic oil will work but the slide/frame relationship is more like a bearing in a way. a grease lasts longer.
Do you understand what a SOLVENT actually is?
Grease on rails.
Oil every where else.
YouTube for a ton of videos.
HOPPES # 9 IS NOT SUITABLE TO BE USED AS AN OIL!
You are very welcome my friend
I wouldnt grease the rails if you live in a cold environment in the winter.
True, but, since it is currently August.......
Yes I understand, it was a mis-type and I already corrected myself.
