I just used Tetralube grease - I think I'm a believer. Did I use too much? The slide feels very strange, smoothly gliding by; but feeling like it's moving through molasses. But the gun did the job - this stuff keeps working.

BTW - is this lube just some rebadged lube I can buy cheaper under another name? (Thought I'd ask).

However, I now have some of the obligatory dirt on my slide. Will wiping off the dirt remove enough lube that I should reapply, or will the smallest surface coating continue to protect?


thanks,
Battler.

?? I would have thought that the rails was the spot that would most want the Tetra grease.

CLP on the rails? That was the (unsuccessful) lube I was using previously!

Originally posted by Chico:
I too apply Tetra Gun lubricant with a model paint brush. Then I lay a bead of Break Free along the rails. Simply wipe off the excess lube that will migrate to the rear of the slide/frame after several cycling motions. Stainless requires a bit more lube that regular blued.
If you have visible dirt IN the moving parts of the slide railing, then diassemble, clean it & reapply lube.
