    Most of the time I use Mil Tec1 or Weapon shield on the inside. I've also been know to use Mobile 1, but that is usually on rifles.

    On the outside, CorrosionX

    I use Gun Butter on all mine and love the stuff. Never have had an issue with it drying and performs very well.
  5. I use Italian Gun Grease. I get it from a guy on this forum. Good guy to deal with and ships fast

    Gun Butter for me!

    Used to use Zero Friction. Found Gun Butter tends to attract less lint (or maybe it's just me?). Anyway....

    I've used CLP since my military days but have recently discovered Gun Butter. I'm thinking I like that (GB) much better than CLP.

    I use Ballistol. It's a great lubricating oil and corrosion protection oil.

    I used to use Hoppe's Oil, it was a good lubricating oil but horrible for corrosion protection. My G23 is an older one that has bare steel frame rails, one of the frame rails had a small spot of surface rust develop on it while it was literally dripping with Hoppe's Oil. I cleaned the surface rust off and have used Ballistol ever since, and the rust has never returned.

    I also found some very light surface rust in the internal areas of both of my slides, and I'd always been told "No oil in the slide internals". Well after I cleaned the surface rust out, whenever I detail stripped I started wiping the internal areas of the slide with Ballistol, then wiping them relatively dry. The rust hasn't returned since.

    I couldn't be happier with it.

    Thanks everyone. I think I'm gonna try the gun butter pen first and see what happens.

    I use CLP like I did in the Marines. It worked in some of the worst places.
