    I clean with Weapon Shield.
    I use Mobil 1 20W50 VTWIN oil.
    I use Slip 2000 EWG grease.
    Ed's Red is a good lubricant.

    It generally causes more problems than it solves, and doesn't usually solve any actual problem, merely creates more. Again though, it works because the lubrication problem isn't that hard. Oil is just by and far, so much easier. That said, years of works for me is hard to overcome, so oh well.
    Think for yourself. Question authority.

    Grease is oil with added thickeners.

    The oil dries up and/or migrates, leaving the thickeners in place. Not a huge concern, but it does happen. Not to mention reduced cold weather performance.

    Of course, not really a concern or as much of a concern in warmer environments. As always, there is no black and white, only shades of gray. Make an informed choice, be ready to change if needed.

    Grease in an AR is a hard no, itís associated with stoppages even in hot environments. I tested some personally in a hot/humid envít and had a lot of FTF. Went back to oil and no problems.

    Iíve done a bunch of high round count days with Slip2000 EWL. I use the heavier stuff, ď30Ē I think. Iíve been using it for years. It does a good job of staying put, lubricates well, and doesnít smell bad like motor oil. I havenít tried everything, there might be better stuff out there, but the EWL has exceeded my expecations.

    I agree, Iíd rather run thicker oil than grease and Slip2000 EWL30 is good stuff.
