I heard some people saying it is just tranny grease

Whatever it is, it works pretty well. I use the light one.

you mean, thin viscosity?

how about medium viscosity? will that cause malfunction to my guns?

I have been using the "light" slide guide on some of my semi-auto pistols works very well.

I use the lite on 226 and it works just fine.

Run the light unless you plan on shooting a LOT between cleanings.

I've used it occasionally, and I like it.

Well, if Brian Eno sells it and guys on the benos forums use it, then it must be good. Those are all competition shooters that shoot 500 rounds a weekend!

I use the Hoppes gun oil that came in a cheapo Hoppes rifle cleaning kit I bought 10 years ago. I found some cheapo "lubricating oil with teflon" at an electronics store that I am using as well.

Most of my guns aren't that picky about what oil or grease they have on them as long as I clean them and put SOMETHING on there.

I use it on all my full metal frame guns.

Medium or Lite are both good.

I think Slide Glide is kinda wasted on polymers though.

I agree, I use it on the metal contact areas of my Glock :43:

I use the light viscosity on all of my stuff. Around the barrel, rails and anywhere else that has metal on metal. I'll use the medium on the higher powered stuff and my bolt actions.

I use the light. Love it. Whatever it may be, a tub is cheap and lasts a long time. Apply with a make up brush.

Just stick with light. It is a better all around viscosity. And yes, it is very good.

I can run my 1911 ("known" for their "unreliability") for 1000+ rounds between cleanings using slide glide.

I use medium on all my handguns and sporting rifles (SCAR)

Yes its good stuff. Tacky and stays where you put it without running all over or cooking off prematurely. I bought the light and medium at the same time. Light has been used much more frequently.

Okay, I'll ask the dumb question.

How does this compare to Tetra (basically white lithium grease). I use Tetra / lithium grease on slides of my semi-auto pistolas. Works well.

I use Lite on my 1911s and Standard on everything else. It stays put. In retrospect I coulda just done with the Lite. The little tub lasts forever...

I use medium and it works very well. I have about four small containers of the stuff from various USPSA matches (goodies in the shooter's packet). Some of the Slide Glide is years old. A little does go a long ways.

I used tetra, and still do on occasion and I always go back to slide glide.

I use the thinnest viscosity slide glide and it has worked ok on my fullsize 1911, but it made my shotgun jam horribly. I like it on my revolvers and bolt guns more than anything.

It also made my 3" 1911 jam

Cute cat!

I previously Tetra before I switched to SG. With Tetra, I found that it would get "cakey" after a single shooting session. Cakey meaning it would lump up but rather small thin discs of gunk.

SG sticks much better (for me). I used it on my Sig for Stan's Academy of St. Crispian pistol 1 and 2 course. And even thought it was super hot and super dusty (a couple dust funnels kicked up),the Sig never jammed up. I even shot it the next day without cleaning it.

Heavy works well on my Sigs.
