Any of the best synthetic motor oils such as, Mobil1, Royal Purple, Lucas,etc. Use 5-30 or 10-30 in winter, 15or 20w-50 in summer. These "gunlubes" arent some "specially formulated" lube, designed in a laboratory like some might think,lol. The best stuff available is formulated by the big oil companies that really DO have laboratories,etc. Then again, "gun lubes" are merely repackaged lubricants that you could easily find at any Autozone and one quart will most likely last you a lifetime.

Three things:

> Like to see proof that gun lubes are really just motor oil

> I gave up on Autozone when I called customer service and it was in India.

> What does this have to do with my question?

I think a general rule for lubrication is less is more...Most gun mans. state in their owner's manuals that excess lubrication is not necessary and only serves to attract dirt and contaminants that can cause issues.

As an experiment, I lubed my wife's Glock with boogers and then ran 75,000 rounds through it.

It worked just fine. That's how tough they are. :rock:

Dammit, I thought this was going to be about a lube made out of worn out Glocks.

That'd be pretty awesome.

Also, my mom's not really dead. I was lying.

I use Militec (since it came free with the wife and I liked it a lot after trying it) on all the non-revolver guns in the house. Dab on the slide rails and locking lugs and you're good to go.

It does kinda look like snot, though.

I have owned all the pistols you named and I lubed them the same as a Glock with a small amount of Mobil 1 20W50 and they all worked fine.
