I use gun butter on my Colt 1911.

I love the smell of Hoppe's #9 after the hunt! And whatever oil is on my bench.
Usually 3 in 1, been using it since I was a pup. (1940)

Just out of curiosity, what were you using 3 in 1 oil for in 1940? :)

Anything that will adequately lubricate the internal parts of a diesel engine, certainly should adequately lubricate a 1911. 8)

Decided to stick with Tetra Gun Grease as that is what I used for my shotgun hinges when I shot competition. If it stood up to 600 rounds of 12 gauge a weekend, then my SR-1911's should do fine. Thanks everyone.

Lubriplate was good enough for my M1 and then M14 when I deployed back when and it damn sure works great on the rails of all my semi autos regardless of make or model. Cheaper than all those exotic lubes that smell and taste like Mai Tai cocktails and works better also!

You do too most likely. Lubriplate is used by Hobart to oil deli slicers because it is not harmful if injested.

Interesting.

I had to quit using Break Free CLP in the spray can because I couldn't stand the smell. It's not an unpleasant smell, but if you get any on your hands, you can't get rid of the smell for 4 or 5 days and every time your hand gets near your face (such as eating, smoking, scratching, etc.) you have to smell it again. This gets tedious after the first 24 hours. The stuff in the little squirt bottles doesn't seem to have this problem, though.

I seem to like the Battleborne products. They’re not overtly expensive and you only use a small amount each time. That starter kit l bought last year still has half of each product and I shoot and clean regularly. Meaning 5 times a week at 100 or more rounds a day. But like alot of folks will tell you, in reality, I’m probably wasting my money when a good ole can of Hilco or Balistol would work. Balistol has this sickening smell to me though. I love how it works but I cant stomach that strange smell.

I use Gunzilla, Remington action cleaner once in a while, and Hoppe's elite oil.

Grease - your choice - on the slides.

Oil - your choice - everywhere else.

Not hard, really...
