    So i lubed my glock according to everyone's recommendation. Very minimal lube on the necessary parts using Hoppes Gun oil the cheap stuff in the orange bottle. I keep my G19 bedside in my drawer and the oil just leaks out of it. It oozes out of the back of the gun from the slide rails which is strange because I only put 1 drop on each rail.

    I read online that a lot of people switched to grease. I live in southern California so I am not worried about problems with low temp.. It was 73 today.

    I picked up a bottle of Wilson Ultima-Luba Grease is this a good oil replacement? The problem is the stuff is so damn viscous. It stays put but if you put a drop on each rail it doesn't disperse much. I still plan on putting oil on the front of the barrel and on the connector to keep things clean.


    Is the Wilson Ultima Grease good stuff? Should I just manually disperse it throughout the rail?

    Use Mobil 1 15w50 or 20w50 full synthetic motor oil. You don't need to blob it on, put it on thin and it will stay in place and NOT run at all.

    CLP is the best lube for Glocks.

    You can use ONE drop for all the points. Not one drop for each...

    You're using too much oil.

    This.
    Look either you have runny oil, a thicker oil like motor oil, or light grease. Or you can get a dry lube which don't lube much at all.
    Given the choice, I would take option #2, the motor oil. It will move some, but not as much as thin oil like CLP, and not as little as grease.

    It's sort of like that 3 little bear story. it's just right.

    This is more than 4 times too much oil. Put one drop of oil on your finger and touch the frame rails with it. Take what's left on your finger and wipe inside top of slide...you're done.

    i've used militec-1 for a long time and i realy like it. use as directed and it works as it sais it well. i just cut a small piece of cloth and put the oil on it, then wipe the rails with it leaving a very light film on the important parts. I have recently switched to wilson ultra lube just to try it out and it works great. just don't put too much on or put it were it doesn't belong

    Yes, that is good stuff. A little bit goes a long way.
    You may also want to consider: Tetra Gun Grease

    None of your damn business!!
    Cheap Walmart brand SYNTHETIC motor oil. Its inexpensive and lasts so damn long. Its about $5.00 for a quart where I live. CLP is to expensive for the PISS ANT amount they sell you. Even buying CLP in bulk is WAY over priced:faint:.

    I put just one drop each on all the points the manual calls for on my glocks.:supergrin:

    I recommend this !

    I would not use any motor oil !
    Motor Oil is not regulated by the EPA, to the same standards as Gun Oil.
    Because Motor Oil is not suppose to come into close contact with humans.
    So, it is not required to be as clean and free of toxins as Gun Lube.
    Don't gamble with your health.
    Toxic oil can be accidentally spread throughout your home, by touching door-knobs etc.
    Then absorbed thru the skin, to slowly take a toll on your health.

    For example, Poison Ivy is a oil, that rubs off the plant.
    It can get on your Dog or Cat, and then infect you when you touch them.
    Poison Ivy oil on garden tools can keep reinfecting you for weeks.

    I really don't understand how people insist on using Car motor oil. I'm not saying it's not a good lube as I've certainly never used it but I'm sure it contains additives to help clean the engine. I'm sure it is loaded with some sort of solvents to remove gunk especially the kinds marketed for old cars. I also think it contains more carcinogens that synthetic lubricants, i would prefer not handle it or deal with it.

    As an update the wilson ultima lube grease actually does smear around good. I racked the slide back and forth maybe 6 times and each slide was neatly coated in a thin layer. GOOD STUFF!

    Miltec-1 is rated very low for rust prevention.

    Here's the link:
    http://www.thegunzone.com/rust.html

    Break Free CLP: No rust, bright.
    Break Free LP: No rust, bright.
    Eezox: No rust, bright.
    Sheath: No rust, slight darkening.

    Very Good:
    TW25-B: Trace rust freckling, slight darkening.
    RemOil: Slight rust freckling on bottom.
    3-in-One Oil: Trace rust.
    Bore Cote: Trace rust on bottom.
    WD-40: One small area of rust.

    Good:
    Rust Prevent: Two small rust spots, <20% coverage.

    Unsatisfactory:
    Arms Cote: >50% rusted.
    Miltec-1: Significant rust along bottom; rust freckling on top.
    Kroil: >75% rusted.

    Break Free or eezox are the best for rust prevention. Follow this link for the test:

    +100! The best fully synthetic motor oils in these weights are all you'll ever need! It stays put and doesnt run all over the place, doesnt cook off, gives good protection and a quart should last you for many years! Do you really think there are lab technicians formulating "gun oils" in these tiny facilities?? If you want the very best head to autozone, not Dicks, Gander mountain or wherever else you buy these repackaged ripoffs known as "gun lubes". If you HAVE to buy something with "Gun oil" on the label, Lucas is making their very own now. You can get it at Autozone. Get something thats made by companies with deep pockets that actually specialize in lubricant R&D.
