Like leade45, I use both. For field-strip/clean just a thin film of Wilson Combat grease on the slide rails, barrel hood at breach face, upper and lower barrel lugs and ID of barrel bushing. Then a light application of Wilson Combat oil everywhere else.Figsy said:Do you guys use grease or oil on your 1911's?
I use S-L-I Liquid Gunsmith, which is a full synthetic, developed for NASA and pretty much the predecessor of Mobil-1. Some of the same chem engineers that developed S-L-I (Seal Lock International), also worked on Mobil-1.Flame Red said:I have thrown away all the gun oils and use a fully synthetic oil like Mobil-1 or Amsoil instead. Use the lightest weight one you can find, usually 0W-xx. For $5 at Sprall-Mart, it will last you a life time. It will not bake off, burn and turn into crud, makes it easy to clean, will not dry out, stays where applied, safe for all finishes, and will not require reapplication during heavy use.
I got turned on to it when I asked Cobray what to use on a class-3.
The only grease I use is on a M1A. Other than that, everything get's the Mobil-1 (or equiv) treatment.
Try it - you will throw out all the gun 'snake' oils out after you do.
You can save your little bottles from you favoriate snake oil and just refill it with Mobil-1
Didn't mean to be so confusing. LOLTempest said:Just get Weapon Shield, all you need.
Me three. If it holds up in the engine, it should be more than enough on a gun.Flame Red said:I have thrown away all the gun oils and use a fully synthetic oil like Mobil-1 or Amsoil instead.

LOL, neither am I. I'm just recalling bits and pieces of a conversation I had over 10 yrs ago with an engineer that happend to be in the shop on a Sat.Tempest said:I Googled them when you mentioned the product but could not find anything useful about it. No MSDS or mention of what makes this product stand out. $15 for 4oz (+ shipping) is way expensive. You can get 16oz of WS-CLP for that.
Still not sure as to the technology link between this product and M1 that you are talking about.
Since you use both, you are in a perfect position to do a side by side.CryingWolf said:I have to second+ the BreakFree CLP. I use Moble One in my truck and AMSOIL in my motorcycle. I am sure Moble One is fine but this begs the question why not try AMSOIL over Moble One?
