    While still active law enforcement, I attended a number of classes involving the AR platform. It was in these courses I first heard of using Mobile One synthetic oil to lube the AR bolt. Prior to that I was using CLP. I really didn't like CLP because it got all over my Bolle' goggles or glasses. I switched to Mobile One 15-50 synthetic and was sold on it, no more oil slung all over the place! I've been using it now for about 15 years on my AR's and my pistols without any problems. It stays where I put it.

    Plus, with Mobil One 15w50 synthetic, you can run it all day in your V-Twin and use the extra in the oil tank for emergency lubrication purposes on you and your friends firearms. It doesn't have a GL5 additive that damages plastics. Watch out for gear oils with pressure additives as they will break down plastics over time (read as months submerged).

    Still 15 ounces is a lot of grease, so I got these 2 ounce screw top plastic jars (from the overnight section of Wally World), plus a couple of small 2 and 4 oz. glass jars (that formerly held the wife's cosmetics). I think I have filled about a half dozen of these so far, and I still have about half the grease left. I throw the smaller jars in my cleaning kits, leave one on my work bench, one by my EDC guns, and threw one jar in my range bag.

    So what is this Lubriplate SFL-0 like? It is a white, very light grease. It looks and feels like you took regular white grease and put it in a blender so it comes out with the consistency of whipped cream. It is light oil grease. Like regular grease it stays in place and doesn't or move when hot. I have been using it on my carry pistols for months now, and it works, but it is hard to tell if it works better than the regular gun grease that I have been using for years. So I have some EDC folding knives that are a little stiff and I got the idea to do something about that. I took them apart, buffed the pivot points, washers in this case, and lock points, greased with this Lubriplate and reassembled. Now they are smooth as butter, but the best part is that the light oil I have always used in the past seeped out over a week or so as the knife warmed when I carried them. This is not a problem with this Lubriplate grease. This stuff is amazing.
    I have used Tetra ever since I got into guns. My brother was in the Navy and they grease everything. I also took apart my cheap Chinese Kershaw knife and greased it. It opens so much faster and smoother now.

    Tetra is great stuff I have always used it on all my guns.

    Tetra grease on rails and FP-10 on small moving parts, works for me, I did use gun butter on rails but found the Tetra adheres better with less mess.

    I usually use Mili Tech grease on my semi auto rails and AR bolt & carriers and Mili Tech oil on the outside of my pistols and rifles except the wood and polymer parts of course.

    Life has no meaning, so stick to greasing what slides and oiling what pivots, and life will have more meaning for you.

    For a DFL Mili-Tec1 is the best I have ever used. I also liked that if you sent them an email from a combat zone they would send you the 8 ounce bottle for free. Did not know they made a grease.

    If you are using synthetic oil to keep the BCG from slinging oil, you can use Red's, which is pretty much what we concocted in the Army and use on everything from our M16s, to M1911A1, to M9, to M60s, to M2 .50 Cal MGs. It is only a quart of ATF (auto trans fluid which makes the whole thing red) mixed with a pint of STP. But I have also used a a quart of oil mixed with a pint of STP too. The STP keeps everything stuck to the BCG, slide or other moving pasts. The ATF really acts as a solvent to clean stuff up and we would use it straight up to clean weapons for turn in. Whether we were issued CLS or Breakfree, they seemed to me to be too light, especially when it came to the M60 and M2. In any case we usually ran out, but there was always ATF and oil in the motor pool, and STP at the PX.

    You probably don't shoot your AR enough, or rapid enough, to get it hot enough to season the BCG (like Grandma's frying pan), but with a parkerized finish you can do that. Otherwise, when you put your AR away, take out the BCG, soak it in your favorite lube and put in a ziplock bag until you take it out to shoot. That will at least keep it soaked in lube until you are ready to go shoot. Many times your BCG will dry out just sitting in the rack. If you have one of those slick finishes, just wet it before shooting.

    All parkerized finishes need to hold oil to prevent rust, including the outside of the AR. So wipe the AR down with lube give it a few minutes to soak in, and then wipe it dry before you put it away.

    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.
