    I have a question for those who use grease instead of oil on the rails of the 92/96/90-Two firearms. Do you still use grease on the small rails of the barrel and their short slots in the frame, or do you use oil in that location?

    I've always used grease there, but due to the shape of the slots and nearby surfaces it is sometimes hard to make sure the slots are sufficiently greased without making a mess.

    I'm just curious what others use for these surfaces and why.

    Is there any particular reason you use oil?

    I'm honestly not asking in an attempt to change your mind or start an argument, I really would like to know why you choose what you do.

    The Beretta 92 series pistols are one of the most popular military and police handguns in the world, how many of them use grease? BreakFree CLP is the standard.

    CLP is the standard because it is inexpensive and easy to supply one item that does it all.
    But single items that do it all, generally aren't as good at any single task. CLP is good. But it's not the best at cleaning, best at lubing, nor best at rust protection.
    So the fact that CLP is the standard is irrelevant.

    That being said, I use RemOil or Mobil1 20w-50 so I don't really have a dog in this fight.

    When I carried a personally owned Beretta 96FS on patrol I used RIG gun grease, applied with a pipe cleaner to the slide rails, barrel block, and barrel block interface surfaces.

    It use on the slide rails of my other pistols too. Just a personal preference for grease in these areas over oil.

    Oil- I don't think the owners manual says anything about grease?

    Answer may depend on how many rounds or how often you go between cleanings.

    If it is long between, some type of grease may serve you well.

    Personally in mine, I use CLP or light oil. But I don't fire more than a few hundred rounds before cleaning, and I always clean after each range session.
