I add a very, very, very light coat of lubricant on the locking lugs on top of the barrel. Also the same for the swinging link.

Pretty much any place that has metal-to-metal contact.

I agree, I use CLP and a gun grease like Wilson Combat.

Not unlike that crotch-rocket in your avatar.

All of you have missed the major issue in this whole thread - who falls for the old "I lost my cleaning supplies in the move" lie and cleans his freind's guns?

I'd love to go have the fun of shooting my guns, and then hand them to a friend to clean them for me! I used to think thats what my sons were for, but then they grew up and moved out on their own, now I'm back to cleaning my own . . . :(

Are you serious about that? I had Robar do my Commander in NP3+, and it seemed like the lady told me to keep it lubed for the first 200 rounds, and after that it wouldn't need lubing. Later, I thought I must have mis-understood her, and continue to lube my Commander.
Do you REALLY not lube your NP3 plated Spartan?

That crotch rocket in my avatar is a two-strokes engined animal. It needs a lot more lube than an M1911.

Taken right from Robar's website:

SELF-LUBRICATING: PTFE is deposited throughout the coating so for most firearms no additional lubrication is needed after initial break-in.


YMMV

My bedside 1911 was finished in NP3+. While I'm absolutely sure it would run dry, I still lube per normal. (insert cheap joke here)

When it's my life I'll err on the side of caution. No point in running it dry.

For some ungodly reasons people think that guns; be they old or new, needed to be drenched with oil/grease. A little goes a long way.
This is true. Over-lubing can actually be worse that underlubing, because too much oil traps dirt and metal particles and actually helps that junk move into bad places.

There comes a certain point at which more oil does not mean better friction prevention.
