What lube/clp do you use?
« on: July 28, 2017, 09:32:15 AM »
Curious what everyone uses to lube their firearms. Anyone more than satisfied with their lube/clp?

I use LPX for no reason other than its what I have. Anyone used militec and, if so, thoughts?

I use Slip 2000 EWL on specific firearms and because I have a ton that I've acquired and love it. Although, for everyday general lube and on most moving parts, slides, bolts, pins, etc. I use Mobil 1.

Loved using CLP in the military.  I think new formula is different.  I also use EWL and Cherrybombz.

Froglube is fun but I like Gunzilla more.

I too use Mobil 1 Synthetic for certain things.

I have Slip 2000EWL that I use for my ARs. I seems to make cleaning a little easier with all the carbon. For my other guns I use whatever gun I oil I have. Somehow I always seem to have bottles of gun oil laying around. Someone just gave me a couple bottles of military surplus oil from Vietnam era.

Any oil will work. The Slip2000EWL is good but I think when that runs out I will just use synthetic motor oil. I can get it free.

I use synthetic motor oil. If it can keep my car lubricated at a sustained speed of 120mph then it's fine for my firearms.

 Slip2000 EWL and synthetic motor oil.

I did like the results of Eezox in the online rust tests, but for an external rust-preventative only.

Thanks for the responses all.. but noone has mentioned about militec. Anyone have experience/know someone who has used it?
Its more expensive than Kroil!
