For now, yes. Since I am only 34.
I played with reddots on pistols a bit but never took to them.

At any rate, too little lube is FAR, FAR more likely to be a problem than too much. If somebody doesn't know how much to use, tell them to err on the side of too much/lots. The BCG is better off dripping wet than dry or even damp/moist.
I've personally had problems with too much lube. Ft Sill Oklahoma. Red clay dried to a fine powder. Stick and clumps to any moisture. All kinds of havoc ensues.

I agree! In Iraq I used graphite powder on my BCG so the sand didn't stick to wet oil...but it made a mess at times.

I grind my clay to the consistency of cat litter to avoid this issue.

This was all the rage in the early to mid 70's, and always seemed to work fine for me. This was my last "issue" can from around 1974. Still has a bit in it too.

Its a bit messy as a liquid, but once it dries, it doesnt attract anything, and its a decent lube/protectant. Way better than powdered graphite.

I thought it was all but gone until a couple of years back, when I came across it again on the internet. These days, you can find it here....

Seems to be the same stuff. If you dont want to run them "wet", this is a good choice.

I have used that for years, but would have never though to use it on a gun. It works well for keeping the working parts of my Tractor's snow blade working. Throttle cable too.

Thanks for the info. My days of playing in the sand are over so now I use wet lubes.

Troy is pricey, but excellent. Good choice.

I have run almost every rear sight on the market at one time or another, I still have a Troy and DD A1.5 because they are my favorites. The KAC micro is nice, I like that they dont lock in the up position like the Troys, but they only have one aperture and I m not real big on elevation adjusments on my rear sight (unless its a carry handle). The Magpuls are the best value and take the most abuse, but I dont care for the aperture, I wish they were more like the Troy or A2 style. The LMT is great, nbut a little bulky compared to the A1.5, and expensive.

Personally, I am a fan of Troys.

I would go with the Troy as well, overall I like them the best for flip ups, if Magpul used an A2 aperture they would get my vote, but I dont care for the one they use. The Aimpoint PRO has a riser that makes it a lower 1/3 cowitness so you wont be looking through the sight at the dot, so you could run a DD or any other fixed rear, without looking through the rear sight.

Troy if you want top shelf. However, if you are just going to use them in a back-up role, MBUISís are serviceable.

I dont know that Id call Troy top shelf. I have a set that came on my M&P15, and they are not near as well made as the set of GG&G BUIS I have on my one Armalite.

The Troys I have, have a lot of play in them when they are deployed, and dont seem to be as precise as the GG&G's.

I have never tired the GG&G but all my Troys have been solid with no play, I would contact Troy, they have great CS.
