I use Slide Glide Lite, sparingly. I also use Gunzilla as lube/protectorant. Welcome to the forum. Be safe!

Slide Glide Light & Slide Glide #1(it's more viscous for warmer weather)

Have used both for several years on slide tabs on frame,trigger bar,sear,striker hook and in front of striker safety where trigger bar pushes it up to fire.Also,entire length of barrel.

I use it not too sparingly and have been very satisfied.



Weapon Shield on external metal surfaces for rust prevention.(Still have my sample 1 oz. bottle but am about to actually BUY some.!!!

Wilson combat white grease (love the syringe applicator) is my current fave.



I also like Prolix products. Their lube is pretty nifty.



For general slipperiness (not high-wear points), I use Eezox.

Thanks for the tip - I sent them an email and I got a response less than an hour later saying they'd gladly send a sample!

If it's going to be 40 degrees, or colder, I use either FP-10, or Mobile 1



If it's a little warmer, I prefer Slide Glide.
