    Any lube you used on your revolver will work just fine on the auto. For lube on all my guns I been using Gunbutter and I like it real well. Good luck.

    Lots of people used plain ol' gun oil for everything that needs lubrication, and this approach has worked for many years. However, a lot of people will use a gun grease on the parts that slide against each other, such as the frame/slide rails, and a lighter oil for the parts that rotate. There are also some of what I call "high-tech" gun lubes such as Militec that are a bit more involved to apply, but do quite well and don't hold on to grit/dirt as well as oil does.

    I use grease for the rails and the part of the slide that pushes up against the hammer (if there is a hammer). I use a light oil for the inner workings and the parts of the barrel that will touch the slide. The reason why I use grease is that it tends to stay put better than oil, especially when the pistol warms up. This allows me to shoot several hundred rounds per session without the need to re-oil.

    You can go crazy trying to decide which of the hundreds of products to use. In the end however, the vast majority of name-brand gun lubes do just fine as long as you don't wait to replenish them. If you get a simple all in one gun cleaning kit, you will have all that you need.

    Breakfree CLP - Have been using it for years. Use it to clean and lube. Military uses it too.

    I have a USPc and many other guns. I use it for all of them.

    We use CLP and MiliTec over here. Both work fine, and our weapons occasionally get hot. I sometimes use the Hoppes lube that came with my Boresnake on my M4 and M9. I have never been able to discern any appreciable difference between the usual lubes. Break-Free, RemOil, Hoppes, whatever. If the gun is reliable - and USPs usually are - any decent lube should work fine.

    Agreed... RemOil and Hoppes. Exactly what I found at Wakmart last time I ran out.

    I use Brian Eno's Slide Glide for my lube. It works great, and softens recoil some.
