Honda automobile dealership service dept. See a tech for an extra packet of the lube that comes in the front brake pad kits. Been posted on AR15 a few times. One fella said they gave him more than he could ever use. Where in OH are you. I have a couple packets myself.

Yes, ordinary wheel bearing grease "for disk brakes".

Try the Honda dealer there by Germain Toyota? I'm 12 mile north of I-70/75 interchange.

Ask for "high-temperature bearing grease", or CRC™ brand Moly-Graph Multi-Purpose Grease. Around $3 for a 14 oz. tub, that's enough to last a lifetime for several weapons.

Is it not advisable to put a small amount of grease on the bolt slide rail surfaces?

I'm removing my old carbine buffer tube to install a mil-spec tube for a Vltor stock. TM9-1005-319-23 says on page 3-81 to lightly lube the lower receiver threads with Molybendum Disulfide before installing the new tube. The machine shop at work actually had a small tube they gave me so I'm all set!

Just make sure it doesn't contain graphite, which can cause galvanic corrosion in aluminum and some dissimilar metals.
