    Father ran 3 in 1 on his paintball guns. And hes was a champion, featured in many Magazines. I run it in my 22s. I like a light oil for 22s since they get gummy easier.

    I never ran grease on my 1911s.

    Seems like I got everything. From 3 in 1, Amsoil, 30W ND, ATF, Ballistol, Fluid Film. But I like the Amsoil, probably be cheaper to get a bottle of say 5W30 syn then the little bottle of gun oil. I gave my 4L lug of CLP gun oil away.

    LOL, I asked how much to use as it was a standard grease tube, he told me it should last everyone I knew for hundreds of years, he uses it on his ranch so he buys by the case

    My brother started using pam spray to lube his guns.
    Now he gets fewer complaints about cleaning guns on the kitchen table.
    Why does the rest of the country get first dibbs on half my income?

    I once met a blonde (the classic type), divorced from a rich man and owner of a Corvette. She used Pam spray to unfreeze the door lock... Every day during the winter.

    Anyway, if you read the original article, this is related to the direction the writer took, with food processing equipment grease to avoid issues of toxicity.

From general maintenance to massaging in after anything gets re-parkerized it will also keep the zerks on my little JD happy.
