newbie question on lubrication

1345 Views 16 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  CH
I just finished shooting my new springfield mil-spec for the first time. After I cleaned it up I started lubing and realized I didn't really know what the most important places to lube were. I tried to lube everywhere metal might touch metal, which seems like a lot of places on a 1911.

1. What are the most important places to lube on a 1911?

2. Is there a product that lubes the entire gun quickly, or is it better to put a little oil on a gun patch and individually lube each spot (which is my normal practice)?

I've owned and cleaned 1911 models for more years than I care to remember. When I got the videos from Wilsons Gun Shop, I found out just how little I knew. I figured as much as Bill Wilson has shot, and the number of guns he has built, he ought to know how to clean one! I'm also using his Ultma-lubes (grease and oil) on all my .45's.
I think the video is about $20, but well worth the money.
