Just finished putting together my first Ar15, was looking online for the proper lube to use on it and have been flooded by so many different kinds from oil to grease. From much reading was thinking of using
Super Tech Multi-Duty Complex Hi-Temp Grease
what do you guys and gals use on your Ar platform to lube and keep it in good running order?
Thanks in advance
Are we there yet?

3-in-1 oil? Marvel Mystery?? Don't have an AR yet so I don't know.

they are chiefly agricultural; and this will be as long as there shall be vacant
lands in any part of America. When they get piled upon one another in large
cities, as in Europe, they will become corrupt as in Europe."

Whatever is cheap works well. I use Eezox. The AR was designed to be reliable under combat conditions. It is.
I use and recommend this dry lube... Been using it for 10 yrs
Goes on wet, bonds and leaves a dry lube
My brother-in-law, a Marine, said that they kept CLP by the barrel full. Literally. That's probably all you really need for AR maintenance. I do use Ballistol though on the bolt and most of the internals.

Same thing I use on all other guns. Remoil.
Do you recommend running it on the heavy side of lube or dryer? Have had a few friends tell me to run it wet for the first few hundred rounds. Shot my first 90 rounds and my wife shot 30 . Was shooting half blind because my glasses were fogged up and aiming at the black blob down range at 20 yrds at the indoor range ( max distance) and it was shooting fist size holes with the blury target This is my first ar experience but its definitely addicting lol and my rear sight is not tighted in at all so was just using the front sight
