    Secrets of 1911 Reliability - How to Lube for Maximum Performance

    This blog post is designed to give you a command of 1911 reliability at the operator level – to get you there, it needs to cover historic 1911 reliability, why lubricant selection matters, universal gun lubrication rules, and detailed specifics on where to lube a 1911 for maximum reliability. It is not specific to our lubricants, but does include some of the why behind ours, and the performance you'll get with them.

    I have been using Lucas gun oil on all my slides and wipe down rag for quite awhile now and been pretty happy. When I bought the wifes AR it cam with some Lucas grease didn't know they had but worked well.

    I have been using Militec-1 since I first deployed in 2005 and have used nothing else since. Does good in everyday use, as a light coat for storage, and does great helping stop any corrosion on the metal of any firearm. Plus I found in the desert it seemed to attract less sand than CLP and I saw less sand and dirt stick to it. Plus a light coat down the barrel and on bolt and moving parts caused it to soak into the metal when it was fired and made cleaning easier.

    When I wasn’t working check points and was doing my deployment job of working on weapons we gave out a bottle with every weapon we worked on and everyone loved it.

    Lucas or similar quality on rails in the cold months. Rail grease in the warm months.

    I haven't used my PM9 in a couple months, since the rails got jammed up with Cornstarch Baby Powder. The slide wouldn't function. Powder probably got in while changing diapers.
