I use rem oil for parts and removing fingerprints and stuff. I use extreme weapons grease 2000 to lube my slides. Works great for me so far

We sell quite a bit of M-Pro7, Slip 2000, and Breakfree.

Personally, I use non-chlorinated disc brake cleaner and Mobil 1 0W-40 full Synthetic.   :o

I use whatever they pass out at matches.  It is hands down the best lube on the market, no one else can come close on value

I used to use FP10 until the original was bought out and George Fennel started weaponshield and updated the formula. Since then I've used Weaponshield exclusively.

I should say I've tried just about everything on this list. I'm not crazy about using motor oil as they're hazardous. Slip 2000 worked very well, but in the desert it's pretty thin and evaporates quickly during the summer months.

Right now using clp for the "C" part and Mobil 1 0W20 synthetic for the final "L" part.
Wondering what to do when the small bottle of CLP runs out.  Maybe fill it with Mobil1 from the quart?

Hoppes 9 comes into play occasionally for barrel cleaning-- some rifles.

For Lubrication:  One "Pocket Clip PIN OILER" and the "empty jugs" of my truck's Mobil 1 drained into it.

Mostly, I use Break Free CLP for the parts that pivot and Brownells Action Lube Plus, for the parts that slide. (It's a black moly-looking grease.)

I have other gun lubricants too, including FP-10 that I may use as well.

I disagree.   At least for the synthetics!  Even Kommifornia gubmint experts recognize the lack of risk of type IV oils to people, animals and the environment.

Maybe you are thinking about USED engine oil, which they consider haz waste and thus encourage rightful recycling of???

Weapon Shield/Frog Lube/Slip 2000/CLP/LSA/TW-25B/spit. They all work. Well, maybe not spit. I use a quart of Mobil 1 full synthetic 0W-20 that I bought about 6 years ago. I have gone through about... 1/4 of it.
snakeye, no worries, I don't need someone in a leotard. :)

 Tyerone is right. Unused motor oil is pretty safe. Why should it be more hazardous than fancy snake oil?
 Type V (ester based) motor oils are even better. They cling to metal surfaces. In Europe producers are Motul for instance. Just look for ,,ester'' writing on the can. Motul 300V competition is example.
In States Red Line I think.

Every one has their own favorites and they all work if you use them. I use remoil by the quart. It is always on the bench for lubing and wiping the internal parts and outsides of the guns. I also use Hoppe's and like it because it is clear and a little thicker than Rem oil. CLP gets good reviews in tests. There are several good ones out there at decent prices. You do not need to pay $19.95 for 2 OZs of hyped gun oil when you can get a 2 oz Hoppes at wallmart for $2.95. Beleive me it will not make a difference if you do your part right. Clean after shooting, and wipe the outside with generous amount of oil. Wipe it clean and dry befor your next use of the weapon. The only exception is if you are in combat and the weapon or the enviroment requires Special Lube. Mobile synthetic grease or any thin wheel bearing grease from the Auto shop will work for the rails.  if you like to use grease on the rails use sparingly cause it makes things sticky if you use too much. That is 5 or $6 bucks for a multi life time supply of grease instead of $15 for a one OZ tube of the so called Gun Grease (many brands)

The ones I have not used and will avoid are ones that are alegedly food safe, vegatable based/organic  :o (read non petrolium base) like Frog lube and many other wonder lubes that are comming out every day and the Stincky ones like Ballistol.

Lastly, do not get me wrong (new here). I am not stingy with money or poor (thank god) but do not like hyped up and/or deceitful marketing targetting the new gun buying folks out there.  :)
