Welcome to the forum, Nate!

I can't seem to follow that link... but I'm at work, so it may just be our network (java and all the other cool stuff is disabled for 'security reasons'):rolleyes: Quite a few people swear by plain ol' white lithium grease, available at any auto parts isle at Wal*Mart... and its cheap. Grease is grease, for the most part...





Then again, I'm a revolver guy, so I don't do too much greasing, anyway. :scrutiny:

One product that TC arms uses on breech plugs is Super Lube. It is avail at Walmart and does a great job. Now, I will say, if you want something that has the protection of a grease, but applies like an oil, consider STP oil Treatment. Clings like a grease, and can be applied with a needle oiler.

Look in auto parts, Walmart, etc for all purpose lubes containyng ptfe. Same stuff as in Breakfree and other gun lubes.

What GRIZ22 said except that any quality wheel bearing grease will work on semi-auto slide rails. Use Mobile 1 5W-30 for the rest of the moving parts of both revolver, semi-auto and rifle. I would even use the grease on the bolt slide rails and lugs of the rifle bolt...Do you have access to bore cleaning products? If not, order from a reputable on line dealer like www.midwayusa.com
