Mobil 1 20w50, but any weight would probably be just fine.

Used to be big on Froglube until it gunked up in the striker channel of my SO's Beretta Nano. Taking that little bastard's slide apart was a pain. I'm also pretty sure it is gunked up inside my Mossberg 500's bolt. Can't get that bastard apart. Light primer strikes in both guns. And from shooting ARs over the past few weeks in sub zero temps, I can assure you that Froglube doesn't like extremely cold temperatures.

There's a really good thread somewhere about lots of different products being tested. Can't find it, though.

ETA: Found it: http://www.shootersforum.com/gun-cleaning/91566-results-gun-care-product-evaluation.html

Superlube for me. It's fairly inexpensive and all the SIG guys like it for their aluminum framed guns. Seems to work very well for me, but I haven't been to the arctic lately.

Available at your local Ace Hardware:

Royal Purple. It's what I have laying around the garage. This fad fascination with having the most high tech, minty smelling gun lube is gayer than 8 guys fucking 9 guys.

It's lube, just fucking pick one. Looking at you Costa.

Did any of you see Ballistic Radio's KAC SR-15? John shot it 20000 times without cleaning and with no malfunctions. He used Wilson Ultima grease.

I have used Remoil consistently on my weapons...

It is available everywhere. It is cheap. I can tell the Mrs. to pick some up at W/M... Or any other store that sells sporting goods...

When we were on vacation a few years ago driving and hiking the Oregon Coast, my weapon got wet... No cleaning kit...

Sent the wife into town with a shopping list, picked me up Remoil. Used a dirty old shirt, and gave my CCW a good cleaning...

I don't know if it is the "best."

I don't know if it can compete with the fancier, newer stuff...

I will tell you that I clean my guns regularly with Remoil... ARs, shotguns, .22 plinkers... keeps them all running smooth.

Never had to worry about "gumming," never had to worry about anything. Just clean them when they need it... And extra oil all-over if I shoot in the rain...

It is cheap, available, and it works for me... The latest and the greatest? It gets the job done...

For "grease" I use Tetra Grease...

If I do clean my guns, it's with whatever is closest.

Tried froglube for a while, but didnt like it.. I want to try fireclean but for now I use hoppes #9 and tetra gun cleaning stuff.

What do companies like Mobil know about lubrication when you can pay $20 for a 4oz bottle of Vance and Coy's Miracle Tactical Boomstick Lube-All?

I don't buy any of the really expensive gun lubes. Any good, lightweight lube will work for semi auto pistols that get a few thousand rounds a year shot through them. I avoid WD-40 because I don't like the residue it leaves. Other respected members here use it and love it.

Even back when I shot a hell of a lot more than I do today I couldn't tell the difference in wear between 3in1, Remoil and one of the high tech products. And that was with aluminum frame pistols with steel slides where galling and dissimilar metal corrosion was a distinct possibility.

I would however, be concerned with some of the additives in engine oil, though obviously Mobil 1 has been used enough that if it were a problem it would have ruined a lot of polymer guns by now and we'd know about it.

Slip2000 EWL. Cheaper than the newer lubes, proven. Not hazardous to one's health out of the bottle.

Is that Cooters special blend?

Hoppes #9 here. Its all my dad used when I was a kid, and now half the reason I clean my guns is just for the nostalgic purposes

Not relevant in the slightest.

A lubes ability to resist rust has fuckall to do with its lubricating properties.

But a lube that is also good at resisting rust is especially desirable in this application (which is why most of these products say "lubricates and prevents corrosion" on them). This test was also a pretty good indicator for how well the lube stayed in place.

I use break free CLP. I have a shitload of it and it has always worked well so Im not changing any time soon.

This. Although I'm slowly trying to use up an assortment of different stuff that I bought back before I knew better.

Hell the samples that I get in shooter bags at 3-gun matches is more than I use in a year.

Eezox is the undisputed king of corrosion resistance.

I'm more concerned with lubricating properties but if you need to prevent rust eezox is the shit.
