I prefer Wilsons Ultima Lube. It stays where you put it.

I use Militec-1 one on the barrel, slide rails, and shiny parts. And a dab of gun grease on the slide stop shaft and disconnector.

1911 No Lube Test - YouTube
Why all the fuss about types and brands of lubes ? According to the vid above 1911's require no lube and run just fine without any at all.So, why worry about having the latest , greatest space age ,high tech, huckleberry kumquat,space shuttle rated lube ? **** it, I'm gonna run mine dry.

This thread has gone completely off track.. I use good old fashioned Hoppes lubricating oil. I was just wondering if there were any key areas to pay special attention to when lubing.

Hoppe's #9 IS NOT A LUBE it is a bore cleaner!


Few people use even an oil like the Hoppes lube, on the rails of a 1911.

Excuse me, hoppes lubricating oil, I stand corrected.. but please explain why that's not good enough for a 1911? I've been using #9 solvent to clean and their oil to lubricate all of my guns since I was a kid and they seem to work for me. Am I behind the times or what?

A basic oil will work but the slide/frame relationship is more like a bearing in a way. a grease lasts longer.

Do you understand what a SOLVENT actually is?

Grease on rails.
Oil every where else.
YouTube for a ton of videos.
