In my TM it tells me to use Molybdenum Disulfide lube on the barrel threads for ease of barrel removel in the future, are there any substitutes for this, since I have none of this on hand.

Stop by any local gas station (that actually does service work) and ask them for a finger-full of disk brake wheel bearing grease. This is the dark gray stuff! Most high-temp bearing grease is Moly based. You only need a tiny amount to lube the receiver threads. It will work fine in lieu of of the spec stuff.

Go to any auto parts store and get a small tube of anti-sieze. A 1 oz tube costs about $4. A little goes a long way. Use on stock and grip screws too,anything you want to get apart easly in the future.

Yeah, Permatex Anti-Seize works just fine. I've used Never-Seize too. The main difference AFAIK is that Anti-Seize has copper particles and Never-Seize has aluminum particles in it.

Auto parts stores, especially those that carry performance items or most any automotive machine shop should carry ARP lube. This is a special moly lube specified by ARP (manufacturer of quality fasteners for racing applications) for achieving proper torque with their fasteners. Usually used on head bolts/studs and connecting rod bolts. Great stuff, see these links. http://www.arp-bolts.com/ buyt it from JEG's http://www.jegs.com/
