    I clean squeaky clean (ultrasonic tank), then wipe parts down with lightly impregnated cloth as I reassemble. So - thin film, damp but not wet, I guess?

    Sloppy wet.

    You don?t want that thing to be stroking hard and suddenly catch traction.

    I also lube my AR bolts too.

    People say nothing is impossible but I do nothing every day.

    The Slip mentioned is good, also straight weight Mobil1 works well.
    Any reason straight weight vs the 5w-30 or similar popular dual weights?

    Just always liked the consistency of a straight weight, it seems to stay put a bit better, no real reason other than that.
    I feel regardless of your flavor the important thing is running the rifle wet. I have tried a bunch of different lubes on rifles that are run very hard. Only when run dry did I see any marked wear issues and that was on the upper reciever.
    Didnt really see any +- on any particular brand aside from CLP, which to me isn't much of a cleaner or lube. It does work great for keeping a finish looking fresh - ArmorAll for guns.
    The only time I like grease is on a heavily loaded sliding fit like a 1911 slide. An AR bolt carrier isn't loaded the same way a pistol slide is.

    I use synthetic motor oil. Lots of it.

    I figure it keeps the sludge soft keeps it from building up into hard carbon deposits.

    After 1,000 rounds or so I might wipe off the BCG and add some more oil but thats about it.

    I mainly shoot 16-18 inch barrels suppressed. I dont even remember the last time I shot an AR without a can.

    I like to use grease on the 1911 locking lugs and oil at the bushing. Seems to work well.
