Hello to everyone,
I was wondering what kind of techniques and lubes or oils everyone uses when they detail strip their 1911. I got bit by the 1911 bug over the summer and acquired a nice satin nickel Commander, and I love it. I'm finally comfortable enough with it that I can strip her down, and I was curious as to what everyone else used to lube up the hammer, sear, etc. Thanks guys!

The best general lube I've seen is Tetra Gun Lube (Brownell's 316-005-001. It works for any type of metal on places like slides, barrel lugs, sears, ets. For a stainless gun, a good choice is RIG +P Lube (756-030-002). These are definitely worth the money. I don't care for Brownell's Action Lube. I use a tiny modeling paint brush to spread it on.

I use two drops of Tetra gun lube on the slide to frame contact areas and one drop on the bushing, and on the disconnector channel (don't know what else to call it). CLP everywhere else, but I squirt it on a cloth and wipe it down rather than soak the pistol.
