Anyone ever tried using dry lubricants, graphite, to lubricate their AR or any other firearm? I think that that would prevent dirt from getting stuck in the oil, but it would still provide better lubrication than if it were left with no oil. Any thoughts?

the AR systems like to be wet.
dry powder is bad
even it it is graphite

Graphite is a bad thing for the aluminum of an AR. Between the steel in the bolt and the aluminum there's a galvanic reaction caused by graphite. Graphite also pulls moisture from the the air and will absorb the moisture and cause corrosion...

I'm not a chemical engineer but those are the highlights of graphite and ARs... Better to stick with CLP...
