newbie question on lubrication

1352 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 REALLY like Tetra products. Unlike most lubes(Rem-Oil the near exception)it dries to a very slick and dry layer. In an AR-15 it can get very,very hot and still no malfs. In My 1911's it feels noticably smoother(grease and lube by Tetra) BTW, the new version does not smell like bad, well....never mind....
