I've taken a shine to Mobil 1 synthetic grease lately (that evil looking red stuff) and I'm pretty happy with it's performance.

What sort of oddities have you folks found useful in your experience?

In the same vein as you, I use Mobil 1 Synthetic 20W50 for my pistols.

Tends to be a little easier to clean off after shooting as it doesn't retain as much gunk as a grease and remains there after thousands of rounds through my Glock.

TW-25B. Wipe a little on and wipe it off. It doesn't run, it doesn't stain and it doesn't collect dirt and dust. My first choice for pocket guns.

I use 15k mobil one in my car and have the evil red stuff in my jeep hubs. I think I'll give them a try. I did slather some ATF (auto tranny fluid, not federal agent booger snot :) ) on the moving parts of a poly pistol the other day and was pleased with the results. I do think Mobil One is a better choice though, but I read somewhere ATF is a great low viscosity high pressure lubricant by nature.

I like synthetic motor oil (Amsoil) also...sometimes mixed with a little STP oil treatment depending on the application and the temp. As of late, I've been using ATF mixed with STP.

Mobil 1 motor oil, 10W30 or 20W50. Even the 10W30 is considerably thicker than Rem Oil and stays put a lot better.

In the same vein as the Mobil 1, I use Valvoline Synthetic Grease. Rated from -40F to 400F. It stays where it should, doesn't run off, and it's $10 for the whole Lb.

Not sure if that is a Wilson product...I tried Wilson's Combat Ultima-Lube and it stayed on all right: I needed a putty knife to take it off...It was terrible the way it hardened up.:scrutiny:
For now, I'm finishing up on RIG +P grease for my summer needs and am pleased with the results...
That Mobil 1 Synthetic grease sounds like a keeper also....:)

50/50 kendall GT-1 30w & Dura-Lube. It bonds with metal parts and stays slick even when it feels dry.
