    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.

    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
