    I too have used CLP on all my weapons, but lately I have been using Gun Butter which seems to work very well. I ordered some from Tuckergunleather.com after ordering a rig for my 1911. I basically place some on the rails of my Glocks and afew other places on my 1911's as they require a bit more lubrication.

    CLP very sparingly and TW-25 grease on the connector, I have been thinking about trying frog lube for months :dunno:

    I use Frog Lube on all my guns. Not only does it work well as a lubricant, it also makes subsequent cleanings easier IMO.

    But my gun has a Fail Zero Nickel Boron self lubricating finish too.

    I use FrogLube. The CLP on the whole gun, and a dab of the "grease" version on each of the rails.

    EEZOX dry lube for cleaning and then lubricating. Dries so as not to pickup any residue or debris. "Seasons" barrels (like a cast-iron skillet) so no fouling will stick and / or be difficult to remove. I then put a tiny dab of grease on the "hook" on the under part of the barrel where it pivots.

    Wilson's Ultima Lube on all my guns except the bolts on my AK's and SKS's, I use the same but in grease form for those. My facvtory Glock barrels still show no annual rings from firing, still look new.

    I've used Militec-1 for the past 7 years on Glocks, HK's, Sigs, AR's and various others with success. I've never bought into the company's corrosion protection claims but it works well as a lubricant.

    If I keep reading good things about FrogLube, I'll have to get some to try out.

    We used it in the Air Force also and even though I know there are many options out there the CLP still fits the bill.

    I use whatever I get in the match "goody" bags, Mobil-1, or whatever else I have. I use a bit more than I need and a bit less than most people. A small bottle of lube lasts me a long time. My wife bought me an old-fashioned oil can with needle, and I use it to apply drops where needed.

    About the only gun that gets anything special is my SV Limited 10 gun which is literally full of "Slide Glide" as that is what it came with when I bought it secondhand, and it runs like a champ with it. It is the only gun I own that needs grease as opposed to oil. Even my PPC gun, which is fit like a vault door at Fort Knox, can run with oil. The SV seems to need "Slide Glide".

    Mobil-1. Why pay more?

    On the connector, a mix of Mobil-1 and TW-25b or Tetra grease...whichever I happen to grab.

    Depends on the gun...

    For Glock...whatever brand of cleaner/lube that comes with those cheap cleaning kits!

    I like to use CLP type, because I do like a cleaner that is also a lube.

    Gun Butter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The best and last lube you will ever use period. Its inexpensive, works amazingly well, and nighthawk customs now use it on their pistols. I use it on all my guns and reloading press. I can't say enough good stuff about it.
