I have a 3+ yo bottle of EWL 30 that’s still perfectly liquid. Maybe because I use it fairly often – although don’t use very much of it.
Look about you.
I will third this recommendation. I have used WS oil and grease for years with excellent results.

Mobil 1 in a tube.
Hickok and German army love Ballistol. It took some glue shit right off my bookcase and did not harm suface. Better than Froglube. Like Lucas red for rails. You can see it which is a plus.
I use the same stuff, but out of the round tub.
While I have no experience with these lubricants on pistols, there is a topic wellthought by Member 12131 useing them in a 50,000 round endurence test of a P228 pistol. Search P228 factoids and last page thread. I dont believe I've ever seen a auto pistol survive such a test.

Mobil 1 Synthetic Wheel Bearing Grease is my go-to lube. No issues and it is cheap.
"just look at the flowers..."
I have some kind of marine grade grease I bought years ago to lube the lower gears on an outboard motor ..... that is what I use now. Before I came to this forum I just used basic gun oil... I still do on the other parts but I put the grease on the rails....
Ballistol is essentially mineral oil (baby oil).
Pretty much any other oil will work better.
I use whatever motor oil is lying around the garage for a duty gun. I also have a tub of red grease I’ve had for ten years...when I was in the service we used “grease, axle or artillery” or we used “cherry grease” cause it was red...for small arms we used breakfree or LSA or later we used TW24B on the M242 25mm cannon.

I tried that stuff and actually like it.

Ballistol - state of the art in 1905.
There’s better stuff out there now....

I like Slide Glide.

I have these threads. But mobil1 grease is perfectly good for this and cheap.
“So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong, and strike at what is weak.”
I used Slide Glide for a while. Slide Glide is high temperature bearing grease. I think you have to be careful with the standard and heavy grades, especially in cold temperatures. I wouldn't use anything but the Lite Slide Glide except in very hot environments. The thing I really don't like about Slide Glide is that it has organic components which oxidize over time, and it ends up looking like shit- literally like shit, this brownish color. I guess the change in color has no effect on its lubricity, but it just doesn't seem right somehow.
Clean with Weapon Shield then Lubricate with Mobil 1 VTWIN 20W50.

I used to subscribe to the gun grease mentality, but not just simply use Lucas Extreme (blue stuff) for everything.
Have been using Battle Born grease for a while. Happy with the results.

I've been using Slip 2000 EWG mixed with hexagonal boron nitride. Seems to work just fine.
