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.

Yes I understand, it was a mis-type and I already corrected myself.

Hoppes oil is decent... thin, but it works fine.

Heck, I just use the same motor oil I put into my truck. Works fine. If you want to spend a lot of money for a little bit of oil, FP10 is nice.


As for where to apply it - rails for sure... generally, your gun will tell you anywhere else. Look for wear spots.

OR you could go to

http://stevespages.com/pdf/springfield_1911.pdf

for the original Owners Manual and see what they say..light oil unless SS, then slightly more.

I do something different on my shooter 1911's..little dab of grease here and there and oily rag to prevent rust.

Have fun.

Has anyone tried a Teflon lube on the rails?

I use CLP on my 1911s.
How much I use depends on the enviornment I'm in, whether a monsoon or a dust bowl. And it a good rust protectant too.

What others use is of very little concern to me. If I see something that I think might be better I might give it a try, but the whizzmogizzmo whoopytydo lastest lube of the week club does not intrest me.

I just picked u a used Norinco 1911A1 and it was dry. Sahara dry. I applied some Gun Butter on the slide and barrel bushing, now it sounds a lot less squeaky. Apart from the slide and bushing, I do not see many contact points that need to be greased. Am I overlooking something?
