I've tried a ton of things, but my favorite continues to be Mobil 1 Synthetic 15W-50. It sticks where it needs to be (not as well as slide glide or a grease) and is cheap. While it is thick and stays where it needs to be, it is not thick enough to slow down the action to the point of unreliability like a grease.



I'm trying Slide Glide Lite now on my full size and can't tell much difference using that compared to Mobil 1. I would save my money personally and use Breakfree for a CLP and Mobil 1 for a lube.

Mobil 1 is pretty good, another one I like is Break Free CLP, the thin tube that comes with the CLP is handy for getting the lube where you want it.

I am fanatical about cleaning my guns, but:



I use Eezox as a cleaner and a protectant and although it is a lubricant as well, a few drop of FP-10 on the rails and contact surfaces.



I did a lot of personal research and came to the conclusion that those were the best products on the market.



Conduct some searches on the larger forums and come to your own conclusion, NOTHING is more subjective then lubrication debates. Take it from a motorcycle owner...blood can be shed over this subject.



On the other hand you really cant go wrong with Breakfree CLP.

So while not a "lube" question, this does pertain to the care and maintenance of the M&P...anyone had any problems with Hoppe's solvent on the polymer frame?

Hoppes #9 is extremely aggressive, I wouldn't trust it on polymer, but some of the other ones aren't bad.

I use CLP/breakfree to clean and then wipe off. For actual lubing I use gun butter or FP10. I like gun butter better so I use it more often, kinda expensive but a small bottle goes a long way, still on my first.

All my gun cleaning and lube needs are taken care of by moly grease, slide glide lite, slide glide, breakfree CLP, remington dri-lube, and butch's bore shine.



Not all at once mind you, but that collection takes care of everything in the safe.



The M&P gets breakfree CLP for cleaning and slide glide lite on the lube points.

Products used:



Brake-Free Powder Blast (NOT CLP) for initial cleaning, although this will strip even the funkiest of stuff)



Hoppes #9 for slide and barrel



Outer’s Aerosol gun oil for rust prevention (spray on everything, wipe off)



Militech oil on firing mechanism (trigger components, striker components and so on)



Militech grease on frame rails… a little goes a long way



I’m so happy with the Militech products that I use it all over the place! Squeaky hinges, locksmithing… all kinds of stuff, I have an extra bottle in my work truck.



The grease is amazing, it puts up with high heat very well… I only know this because I was out of stock on grease and already had the Militech in my grease gun… so it got put on my caliper slide pins and the back of my brake pads when I did the last set of brakes on my 2500 dodge

Ive used FP10 on my firearms (very tight match guns and duty/SWAT) for about 6 years and they've always ran 100%, no matter what conditions they were in, and my SWAT weapons dont get treated nicely or kept and stored nicely sometimes either. Some of my match guns Ive had built were so tight, they would squeeze the oil out of the gun for the first 1000 rounds or so, but FP10 keep them running.



I know Dawson swears by it.
