    Johnson paste wax from your favorite hardware store will give outstanding results for lesso money. I use it on my blue guns.

    Renaissance Wax is the best. However, since it is expensive, I'd use it on guns that aren't going to be shot. I'd take Rig Gun grease for a working gun.

    You have to be careful with paste wax - make sure it has no abrasives in it and that it is PH neutral. Renaissance Wax is a gentle wax.



    I started using Meguiar's Gold Class Carnauba Plus Paste Wax for the exterior of the Glock slide. I called Meguiar's and spoke to a customer service rep he verified that it is PH neutral and has no abrasives in it. Meguiar's Gold Class Carnauba Plus Paste Wax is also fairly oily.

    I waxed the slide on my G34 and I like it. It is easier to cycle the slide than if it had a light coat of oil on it. And it's more protected than if the slide were wiped completely dry and my slide has a fairly hydrophobic coating on top of the gun's finish.

    If I'm not going shooting for a while, I'll put another coat of wax on it.

    Here's a picture of my Glock 17L with a few coats of Meguiar's Gold Class on it.

    It's obvioulsy not going to shine like a gun with a deep blue finish. but here it is anyway:
