    I like this stuff: Amazon.com : HOPPE Outdoors

    Seems to be the right consistency and unlike some products cleans off easily.

    Depends on what I'm lubbing. Grease is for lubing rifles. Oil is for preventing rust.

    That really depends on the application. When I'm storing milsups I use different lubricants than when I use them. For instance when I store my Mosin Nagants for long-term storage all of the metal that is underwood get a light coating of Lucas Oil Red N Tacky Grease the visible metal and bore with Breakfree CLP. (even though I don't shoot them I still wipe them down every couple of months) I also store them in gun socks.

    For the rifles that I use off and on I pretty much stay with (again depending on the rifle) Breakfree CLP, Slip 2000 EWG, and Lubrplate 130-A. My bolt actions will get Breakfree CLP and on the lugs Slip 2000 EWG. My large-caliber Semi-auto (Garands, SKS's, Mini-14) 'mostly' Breakfree CLP and Lubrplate 130-A, and Semi-auto 22's just Breakfree CLP

    For regular use...I use MPro-7 when I need an oil lubricant - I feel it holds up a bit better than the popular break free CLP we used in the marines. I use Lucasoil gun grease when I need a good grease. Different firearms get different treatment. .

    For cleaning, refurbishing, storing, preserving...that is a whole different story. Gun cleaning and lubricating regimens are like butt holes, everyone has one, they all smell different, and everyone thinks theirs smells the sweetest, and don't you tell them otherwise or you'll be sorry.
    Here is a post of mine...
    https://www.milsurps.com/showthread....l=1#post492897
    empirical data I used in that post is here https://www.brownells.com/aspx/learn...aspx?lid=10700 and here http://www.nramuseum.org/media/10073...20wicklund.pdf
    When dealing with a new-to-me rifle, I add a step (0) where I fully disassemble, and use mineral spirits and alcohol to completely decrease every part of any old lubricants. For one, I have no idea what anyone else used, and second old grease and oil from 80 years ago can dry out, become acidic, and cause rust on even the most loved antique (read the nra preservation guide above).

    The enfielder armorers use some military axle grease for wood to metal contact...thread here somewhere that found the spec is NLGI No. 2.
    I use lucasoil white NLGI No. 2 on any tight fitting wood to metal contact not likely to ever see the light of day...under sling swivels, sockets, stock cross bolts, butt plates and screws, etc.

    Just about anything Lucas is good, high drop points. I like Red because its Drop Point is 540 Fahrenheit so if I do shoot a rifle with it, no worries about the grease melting and making a mess. It really blocks out the moisture and salts. When I was a young SEABEE, Gunny introduced it to me.
