Same here. Plain engine oil on everything but 22's. Those get the thin CLP oil.

Just a word of caution. Certain firearms require grease not lube. Of course, I am referring to the M1 Garand, BM59 and it's ilk.

That said, Grease it better for metal protection during storage too.

As a rule, use grease in high load areas (Garand bolt lugs, rails, bolt heads, etc.) along with using grease on firearms that have similar unhardened metals (certain grades of stainless steel comes to mind such as 440A Stainless) or if you are going to use your firearm in the rain, then use grease.

I still use the Mobil 1, 5W-30, on all my .22 pistols and rifles. Never have a problem even in the colder weather.
And don't forget to lightly coat the bore of your guns with it after each cleaning. It seems to help reduce fouling from both jacketed and lead bullets.

I have many kinds of guns with many kinds of actions, metals and finishes, so I use many kinds of oils/grease. One size rarely fits all. For "regular guns" I don't think it matters much what you use.

A relative of mine who worked at Brookhaven Labs says you can always go with Krytrox. Krytox is a colorless synthetic lubricant that can withstand extreme pressures and high mechanical stress. By the way, did I mention it is radioactive resistant too? I guess that's why they use it at BNL.

Just be careful, when it comes in contact with very hot surfaces (above 500F) it can generate fumes which can cause coughing or respiratory irritation. If you're running your gun at +500F I think you'll have other things to worry about.  :shitgotserious

Hmm..  today marks my 24th anniversary for me at work. I look at that and think.. "How the #@&% did that happen?"  (I thought it was going to be temporary, like so many others)

It was a sobering moment last year when it dawned on me that I've worked there longer than I haven't.
