WD-40 is not a lubricant, it evaporates. WD-40 is a water displacement product, use it to remove water from wet items, like auto spark plug wires. Your gun will seize up once the WD-40 dries.

WD-40 may be used only as an external protectant, and a regular Oil or grease should be used as Lubricant.  Application of Firearms in storage, should be at least yearly or annual.

WD-40 as a protectant?

No.

I've read a few reviews and a lot of people recommend the oil used for sewing machines as a lubricant. It's a light grade and also a lot cheaper than some standard gun oils. Have used it a few times on a glock and the cz and seems to work.
Anyone else tried it?

Any oil / lubricant with smoke point over 350F will work. You can even use sunflower oil... Lube has to minimize the friction and distribute heat over the firearm... no other magic.
I've never tried sewing machine oil, but I'm sure it will work.

BreakfreeCLP or Slip2000 for me.

I don't know what the deal is, but Breakfree seems to have disappeared from the shelves of stores near me. I know its still made because I can find it online, but for some reason its pretty well gone locally. I started noticing this some time back, so it isn't a mere lapse in supply to local stores- by which I mean Academy, Cabelas, and before the nearest one closed Gander Mountain.

They just changed up the package design on Breakfree CLP, so it may have been a supply interruption during the transition?

I can find it here nearly everywhere. Been using it for over 35 years.

Yeah, me too (been using it forever), but I haven't seen it in any of the stores I visit for some time....as in a couple years maybe. I have bought it online though, so I dunno. Then again I live in the country and the stores I actually visit is a short list, and very infrequently.
