    I use Gunzilla or Ballistol to clean. Use red Lucas in an needle-oiler bottle for oil and Superlube grease, manually stuffed in a plastic syringe that once housed Pro Shot Gun Grease.

    I use Balistol now but years ago I used WD-40 . I know people say it is not good but I still have rifles in the closet put away with WD-40 on them and they are rust free . One problem with it was the smell . The deer could smell you a mile away.

    WD-40 not nearly as good in rust protection or reducing coefficient of friction as WD-40 Specialist per the best study I have found: Results of gun care product evaluation

    I tend to agree, but why "never, never"?

    First of all, WD40 will get gummed up after a period time and it collects (adheres) all type of dirt, particles etc. that in return attracts moisture and causes RUST.

    Was not aware of the "gumming up", but, certainly no doubt about collecting all kinds of crap. That is certainly an argument to use the smallest amount of lubrication possible, since almost will collect residue, esp. lint in the case of concealed carry.

    I love cleaning actions with WD-40 gummed up in them.

    Rule of thumb in lubrication of any mechanical item is if it rotates, oil it, if it slides, grease it. Sheriff dept required us to grease slides, problem is most folks overdo the grease causing no end of grief. A small dab, rubbed between thumb and finger, then just a LIGHT film on the slide. Properly greased my 1911 would run an entire training day, 500+ rounds, with zero issues, oiled guns started running dry and binding up around lunch.

    Lots of good answers and lots of good lubricants on the market. I use Mobile 1 Synthetic on all of my guns and as mentioned above, I run my AR's a little wet.
    To me Grease seems to ooze everywhere, but it was RED 'N TACKY Grease that comes in a 14 oz tube that I used on my AR very sparingly.

    Grease belongs in the bedroom in the form of KY jelly---not on my firearms!
