What’s your Lube of choice?
Not a pistol guru but last time I shot the owner of range said to make sure to lube my slide. M&P and G20 may get a squirt of silicon periodically but that’s usually it. Should the striker fired be used dry or high temp grease and if grease wouldn’t bearing grease work?

Synthetic ATF. Nothing lubes firearms better than Auto Transmission Fluid.

Any grease will work, oil will work. I use Mobile 1 on my AR, if I use grease on a slide it's just SuperLube synthetic.

CLP normally. Ive used mpro stuff before and it works.

Im going to try some more bore tech stuff. Used some bore cleaner from them and its been easy to work with so I might try some more of their stuff.

Have you met my good friend Motul Spray chain grease?

I'm probably inferring something you didn't mean. The striker channel on a Glock needs to be cleaned periodically and needs to have zero oil or grease applied.

If you were asking about striker-fired pistol in general, Glock recommends 5 drops of oil every time you clean it. One drop on each rail and one on the trigger connector.

FWIW a couple of the "gurus" of custom triggers recommend a very light application of grease on the connector in lieu of the oil that Glock recommends. Charlie Vanek recommends a very light grease like TW-25B (He prefers a grease that is no longer made, called "Trigger Job," if you can find it. Chip McCormick used to make it - it's black, as if it has graphite in it).

I use Lucas extreme duty for lubing slide and frame connecting points. I use their CLP product for general cleaning and protection. It’s good stuff.

re: What’s your Lube of choice?
Ever seen an auto tranny freeze up in winter or gum up in the heat of summer? My granddad was a gunsmith. Conventional atf is all he ever used
Didnt have synthetics during that time. Took my Rem 870 duck huntingon a frozen river in Wyoming. Ice and snow everywhere and that atf had my slide working perfectly

re: What’s your Lube of choice?
I tend to go to Tetra gun grease first because it tends to stay put and doesn't bat an eye until you get to "Antarctic cold or Venus hot", so I will fail due to temperature long before my grease will. For small parts or parts I don't want high viscosity on, plain old Hoppe's No. 9 with a needle applicator to make putting a drop directly where I want it easier and cleaner. For my ARs, I keep a can of Ballistol on hand to hit the BCG through the port now and then.

A gun is a machine. There's nothing magical about lubricating it as long as it's enough. If plain old 10W30 works for you and your guns, go for it.

CLP and/or synthetic axle grease. CLP because it's the best for how firearms are usually used and grease for items like my 1911, Garand, M1A, etc. where there's a lot of metal parts sliding over themselves.

Yes. To both.

In island park Idaho I've had to let my dub warm up for a while before it would shift properly. -15ish

Running south padre in my old long travel buggy, 6000 rpm for a looooong time, I toasted the Atf in the transfer case. A royal bitch to clean out.

Both are extreme examples.
