I use the USGI stuff (little container with the yellow cap) you can get a whole box at a funshow for cheap.

FunShow, I have not been to one of those in 20 years, there used to be a great one at the Stratford CT. Armory. I miss it a lot. The state of CT basically banned it from there so theres goes my local FunShow. Someone mentioned here a grease/lube that could be bought from Walmart auto dept. that would be fine for a grease. Only if I could find that link....

Jut grab a copy of Shotgun news. I see CUP GREASE advertised frequently with the Garand parts.

The USGI lube was called Plastilube. I got something thats the same formula called Lubriplate from a GM car dealership.

I have a small container of grease that I got from my grandpa...it may actually be from WWII....but it still works in my carbine.
