Hoppes #9 and Hoppes Elite Gun Oil. Don't mess with a good, simple thing.

i've found that products like break free tends to accumulate in hard to reach places, and starts to collect gunk. lately, i've just been using hoppes for cleaning, and a few drops of rem oil for the slide and other moving parts. once in a while i'll spray everything down with gun scrubber, and then some rem oil.

I've been using Steal Shield/Weapon Shield for a while now and have been pretty happy. I usually search around other forums and found this,

TruRecoil http://www.trurecoil.com/reserve_tp_...coil_intro.htm

Don't know if it's any good so I requested a sample and it's on the way. If any one has used it I'd appreciate comments. Once I get it I'll try it and post my opinion.

I clean with CLP, and lube with Weaponshield.

I can get the CLP at Wallyworld, and I've got a TUB of the Weaponshield that should last me til about 2063.

Don't want to hijack this thread with a Weaponshield question, but are you using the grease (you mentioned tub). I use the oil, never tried the grease.

I use CLP for cleaning, and Machine Gunners Lube from Sprinco for my lubrication. A little goes a long way with this stuff, and have had the best of luck with it.

I'm a fan of M-Pro 7 LPX. I just ran a 3 day test with samples of Militec 1, BreakFree CLP, Weapon Shield, Otis Special Forces Dry Lube, M-Pro 7 LPX, FrogLube, and Mobil 1 Synthetic Motor oil. I coated nickel-plated steel fasteners with these samples per manufacturer instructions, sprayed with a 5% salt spray at 24 hour intervals while leaving them in the Texas sun for 3 days. LPX is the only one that made it to day 3 without the fastener rusting, though the Otis Dry Lube lasted almost as long (2 1/2 days).

I already was a fan of Hoppes Elite Gun Cleaner, which according to the MSDS is the same as the M-Pro 7 Gun Cleaner. Looks like Hoppes has some great stuff in the M-Pro line.

Since I just completed the test I haven't really had a chance to test the lubricity of the Otis Dry Lube, so I'll stick with LPX for now. The Otis may prove handy for concealed carry, if only for coating the exterior slide.

I only use Hoppes #9 for the a solvent, and either rem oil or OTIS elite for a lube. Never had any problems with those.

I use Balistol & Weapon shield and I'm now trying M-PRO7 LPX. I usually clean the bore with Balistol and the rest with Weapon shield. I just started with the LPX yesterday on my carry gun but only as a lube.

Have you ever tried Lucas gun oil? I've been using it for about 4 years, with outstanding results.

However, when they say us sparingly, they (Lucas) really mean sparingly. First time I used it on a 1911, I had to dissasemble, clean everything out with Gun Scrubber, and re-apply, sparintly. I don't know how many people on this site may have tried it, or what kind of results they might have gotten, because I haven't seen it mentioned, but I love the stuff, both as a lube, and a very light coating on outer surface parts.

Weaponsheild has been great for me on my AR's and pistols. Doesn't burn off like clp and stays put pretty well. I also use TW25B grease on my pistol slides. The syringe applicator is great for getting into the frame rails. M Pro 7 is my favorite cleaner / solvent. That stuff works great.
