    See, the smell doesn't bother me. The smell of Rem Oil when used inside gives me a headache and gets me light headed (I used it for years) - trouble concentrating afterwards too - unless I used it outside. I like the CLP because it doesn't affect me that way at all. I can clean the gun at the table inside and no problems at all.

    I guess we're just calibrated differently then. Can't stand the stuff, meanwhile I never minded Rem Oil

    "Tetra-Gun grease was recommended to me. I did find one article that said that this grease tends to seperate in the tube. It seems like if it would seperate in the tube, it would also seperate on the gun."

    On the tube it tells you to" Knead" the tube before using it to properly mix it. I have used Tetra grease on all my semi-auto slides for three years now and love the smoothness it gives to the action. It takes VERY little to do the job. As for general clean-up I use TriFlow w/ teflon or CLP breakfree.

    Wink Lubriation

    I love Pro-Gold lubricant by Pro-Shot as it is the slickest stuff I've ever tried. I've tried Tetra and others but an ederly gentleman said to try this and man did he ever know what he was talking about.

    Pro-Gold is excellent for stainless steel too as it keeps it from galling.

    He also said to use as little as possible which I do and my 1911 slide is so slick hard to believe.

    I also use FP-10 as it is one of the best if not the best oil on the market IMHO.

    Here is some technical data.

    Wear Tests were performed by an Internationally recognized ASTM Research Facility in San Antonio, Texas, between Breakfree CLP® and Firepower FP-10 Lubricant Elite™.

    The test results show two categories of data. One being the load wear index, or scar on the bearing after the test reaches its maximum lubricity or seizure point. The second being the seizure point itself. As can be seen from the attached data, the load wear index of Break Free indicates 61.83 and a weld point (bearing seizure) of 315 kg. When FP-10 was run under the identical conditions, it did not seize, even at the highest load point possible on the machine (720 kg).

    The results obtained from wear tests performed according to ASTM D 2783 are as follows:

    Oil Code ____________Load Wear Index _______Weld Point. (kg)
    Break Free CLP __________61.83 _________________315
    Fire Power FP-10 __________N/A _____________No Seize at 720

    and here

    I found this information just now and thought it was interesting.

    I may buy some Eezox and Wilson says that Birchwood Casey's Sheath is one of the best rust preventatives on the market which was'nt tested in this test.

    I like the Tetra-Gun stuff. I haven't had any issues with it seperating, but I use it a lot, too, so it doesn't have a chance to seperate. I wasn't fond of the rest of their cleaning stuff, so I use Blue Wonder, but I don't like Blue Wonder's lubricant, too messy. The Tetra-Gun lubricant is real neat and easy to apply.

    Usually Mobil 1. I don't see any lubricant as "best". It either works or it doesn't. I'm not a big fan of CLP because I like my oil and solvent seperate.
