Hey members,

I just bought a tube of this Tetra Gun Grease and it's awesome stuff. I've been using just regular old gun oil after the 2 cleanings and the ratcheting and clanking sounds like a normal polymer pistol should, but......this Tetra gun grease makes it so smooth!!! I put a little on the slide areas and a tiny dab on the trigger bar/ sear, striker, and the firing pin block. I couldn't believe how quiet and smooth everything was after applying TGG.

What are the other brands of lube do you guys use and recommend?

I've been using shooters choice all weather high tech grease. I don't know if it's any better or worse since it's the only one I've tried.

I got a small bottle of 10-8 performace lube when I purchased my sights and decided to give it try. I was running low on my regular oil, so I figured, why not give the 10-8 lube a try. I've used it a few times now and it seems to be pretty good...I might have to order a bigger bottle

+1 on Tetra -



I use both - Tetra grease and oil - I was never a fan of using grease on my firearms for lubrication - I did use it as a way to protect guns that I put in storage - like after hunting season - but cleaned it off before I shot the gun.



Tetra changed my mind - it acts like oil - providing lubrication - but sticks to the parts better than any oil.

I use either Mil-Tec or 10-8. The only time I have seen grease be any good was when Oliva Newton John was in it.

FP10. Try it. Just trust me.
I've tried it and as a lube, I think there are better options.

As an all-in-one product (clean/lube/protect) it is very good, but again, I don't think it is the best for lubrication.

I now use Slide Glide and 10-8 Performance Lube. I haven't yet decided which I prefer.
Which Slide Glide are you using?

I have some on the shelf that I haven't used for a long time. Maybe I need to try it on the M&P

Kenny at Speed Shooters, and Dan B both recommend Brian Enos Slide Glide... suffice it to say that's what I use!

I got some of both the #1 (normal use above 50 deg) and #2 (normal use below 50 deg) that I intend to experiment with...

I use Hoppes 9 to clean the barrel with, CLP to clean the slide and other metal parts with and Hoppes 9 to lubricate barrel and rail.



On my Sig, I use TW25 grease with the hoppes 9 as a floater. I'll eventually try that with the MP too.

I recently got some of Brian Enos Slide Glide "Lite". I am using the little brush that I got with the Slide Glide and just putting a light coat on the slide rails and on the four metal rails that the slide runs on. I am liking it a lot. Prior to the Slide Glide, it was Break Free all the way. I was not unhappy with the Break Free, but the Slide Glide stays put and really smooths thing out.
