    Hoppe's and Breakfree CLP for that Baer you have coming. It's really as simple as that.

    I mainly use FP-10 or break free CLP. I do use Wilson ultimate lube and clean with WD-40 for my guncrafter no name as recommended by the manufacturer.

    I've been using Wilson Lite Oil for years and have recently been using Gunfighter.

    I use MPro-7 on the recommendation of a trusted local gunsmith. Also use Wilson's oil and grease. Been using these products for a number of years and have been very happy with them.

    I use all the flavors of Wilson’s Ultima-Lube depending on temperature. You’ll get so many different answers, I doubt that it will help much. The lube brand is not so important as just keeping it properly lubed.

    Me, too, for lube.

    I still like the smell of Hoppe's #9 bore cleaner too much to stop using it as a cleaner. I dab a little behind my ears on Friday nights if I want a little action with the missus.

    If it's good enough for Dan Wesson, then it's good enough for me.

    While you're out buying the oil it will occur to you to pick up some extra magazines. Maybe we should start a magazine thread.

    Extra recoil & firing pin springs and such.
