Best lubricant

I've been using Break Free for years. Any new ones that I should consider?

CorrosionX. The owner of the company is a gun guy, and he has developed lubricants for everything from pistols to jet engines. Corrosion X lubes and also prevents rust. I've used it for years.

Gun Tests has run a couple of tests over the years on various rust preventatives and lubricants, and they have come up with very persuasive results.

For a glock, 5 drops of any quality gun oil is fine. For glocks and other "dry" weapons, breakfree clp is horribly inefficient, but it will work as a standalone solution. For "wet" guns, such as 1911's and M4's, clp is terrific.

Seems every time I read another thread on lubes, I learn something new. So maybe re-visiting the subject is worthwhile.


I don't have a favorite lube, but am most drawn to those that are less toxic.

I gave up on that Breakfree CLP(cleansNOT/lubesYES THICK/protectsCAN'T when it holds so much dirt) in the desert. Holds too much crud and really doesnt clean anything. A light machine oil (3 in 1) and 5 tiny drops is all a Glock needs. Stay away from any grease based lube in a Glock or M4 and you'll be running fine........My $02........Mike

Hey Gunruner, why do you say no grease on a Glock? It seems that it would not migrate as much as an oil would. I am open to change, please persuade me.

It's good for cleaning the bore and general lubrication of a Glock pistol. Hickok45 converted me to his simpler way after years of following a more complicated pistol maintenance regimen.

If you want something non-toxic, then look no further. Ballistol does not contain any components classified "hazardous" by OSHA and it's biodegradable. If you spill it and a pet happens to lick some, no worries. See Ballistol MSDS for more information.

Very similar to, if not exactly the same as, Amsoil grease. 6 ounces for $6.80 plus shipping. I can't tell any difference with both side by side.
fwiw...

I've been using Break Free since the military and it still works great.
The other lubes I would recommend would get my post deleted
