Flork's Lubrication Recommendation Login/Join

I recently opened a new P320 full-sized 9mm, and removed the Fire Control Assembly from the grip assy to take some weight measurements... the FCA trigger linkage had signficant (visible) amounts of white grease applied, while the flanged-lips of the FCA that align the slide to the FCA were dry.

Next I checked the 'grooves' in the slide and they were visually dry.

I don't know if this implies that SIG recommends running the slide-to-rail interface dry, but they obviously take pains to lubricate the trigger linkage, while lubricating the slide rails is was not a priority.

Metal to metal contact calls for some lubrication, metal to composite contact not so clearly, but it does not need to be much in either case. A light viscosity oil, used sparingly, on the rails and on the flange atop the fire control module will do just fine.

Slip 2000 just had a price increase. Now we know why.

“SLIP2000 is honored to be working with SIG SAUER, one of the world’s best firearms companies, to introduce SPEC1. We are also extremely proud that our lubricants earned the favor of the elite SIG SAUER Academy instructors through rigorous use and testing,” began Greg Conner, President, SLIP 2000 / SPS Marketing. “This partnership means that SPEC1 lubricant is now the official lubricant of the SIG SAUER Academy, and that all SIG SAUER firearms will be manufactured with the SPEC1 lubricant, and a product sample will ship with every SIG SAUER firearm. To earn the endorsement of SIG SAUER, and know they want to put their name on our lubricants and cleaners, is very exciting for our brand.”

As a gunsmith, I used a lot of grease in high stress areas, rails etc. always liked shooters choice. But it’s a bit pricey at 9$ per 1/3 oz. in the quantities I used. Having been an industrial lubricants dealer years ago selling specialty lubes in 400# drums, I did some research and am now using Mobil 28, which is a clay (bentone) based synthetic used extensively by the aviation industry. It’s a little thinner than Mobil 1 greasebeing between NLGI #1 & 2 viscosity. The specs, appearance and smell are about what shooters choice is and I highly suspect they just repackage it. It’s @18-20$ for a 12 oz tube at amazon. Lifetime supply for most people Smile If I need a thinner grease, I thin it with a few drops of Montana extreme gun oil, which is a pure thin synthetic oil with no additives. You can customize for low temps, tight fits, light loads, etc and get max protection. I use a syringe and 4 gauge blunt craft needles toget it where it’s needed.

Hello. I spent 42 yrs in the book binding business. We use to have problems with the chains on our stitchers and perfect binders braking because lack of lubrication. When the chain ran thru the gears, the lube will just fly off the chain. So we came up with this idea. Will it work with the firearms? We use to mix oil with graphite. So when the chain ran thru the gears and the oil splatters out, the graphite will remain lubricating the chains and parts and getting a lot more miles out of our chains and parts. Your thoughts ?

I never cared for graphite in gun applications. It can be messy and is slightly abrasive; More so in a liquid medium. The very good lube article that was, I think, mentioned earlier, seems to agree.. http://www.grantcunningham.com.../05/lubrication-101/
