Default The best lubricant for AR-15?

I use Hoppe's 9 Solvent for cleaning but I was wondering what the best lubricant out there was for lubricating the bolt, barrel, all metal parts etc. with rust prevention qualities. I was going to use CLP for everything but I remember reading somewhere that CLP contains Teflon and could possibly affect accuracy. I read somewhere that Mobil1 10W30 motor oil was a really good firearms lubricant. Any input's? What to do you guys use to lubricate your rifle?

CLP is fine for casual shooting. Anything serious requires Slip 2000.

I don't own a AR-15 but I use Shooter's Choice FP-10 for my other firearms. A gunsmith recommended it to me and it works fine.

I follow the USMC manual as far as thickness of lube application goes. Wherever it says lightly lube, I use a thin film of CLP; wherever it says heavily lube, I use a bit of Castrol synthetic 10W30.

How "wet"? When I read this, I picture dipping the BCG into the bottle and hanging it to drain overnight.

Hard to say what the "best" lubricant for an AR is. I'd wager that no lubricant has field tested track record of CLP in this platform though. There are better lubricants available, but CLP has proven to work exremely well. Personally I'd only seek out something else if I were going to have the firearm exposed outdoors in a marine environment for prolonged periods of time. So far that's the only thing I've noticed that CLP doesn't do very well is protection from damp salty air on exterior surfaces.

Not quite that wet... Dip your finger in the oil and rub it all over the bcg. You want a good thick coat, but you don't want it dripping all over the place.

I just started using weaponshield CLP. I took my Noveske out to the Arizona desert and my buddies and I ran about 1000 rounds through each of our ARs. One guy ran his colt with breakfree while the others used Slip and mobil one through their custom ARs. My n4 smells good when the weaponshield starts too cook off the surface of my barrel (it smells like cinnamon ) and I did notice my BCG stayed pretty lubed up as opposed to my buddy that was using breakfree... scientific testing? Not at all but it convinced my friend into grabbing some weaponshield from the shop later that day (maybe it was the cinnamon smell? ).

TW25B has found a lot of success on heavy machine guns. It is IMO right behind Slip 2000. The ground pounders who use it (typically on the M240s) call it elephant sperm. No joke. Nice visual to huh?

Slip 2000 EWL is Pat Roger's choice for lube. Yes, I talk about him all the time but there is much to learn from a guy who put 40,000 rounds through his AR without any cleaning or stoppages. If I am not mistaken it is waters based, that versus something like petroleum based lubricant means it attracts less dirt. It passed the Aberdeen Proving Grounds dirt tests and lasts longer during prolonged firing and lasts longer in harsher temperatures than CLP.

The military continues to issue CLP mostly because it is cheap, easy, and they refuse to decomm stuff. It is cheaper and easier to teach new recruits with a decent cleaner, lubricant, and preservative in one bottle as opposed to three different bottles of excellent cleaners, lubricants, and preservatives. That and the decomm issue. They still have Armalite ARs and M14s in their armory. I suppose CLP does fine for the military, the average infantryman carries what like 300rds on them? CLP isn't going to dry out that fast.

That's the beauty of CLP, one bottle to carry in the field for weapons maintenance. While it's not really exceptional as a cleaner, lubricant, or protective film, it does all three reasonably well. It holds up well to repeated mag dumps too. During weapons training, one M-16 may see as many as 10 or more shooters that will dump god only knows how many of rounds through it. Maybe not all on FA, but rapid fire anyway. An occasional squirt of CLP into the ejection port, and they just go and go and go, even with CLP scented smoke pouring out of the ejection port.... I'd prefer something a bit heavier for protection of exterior surfaces of firearms though. Our M-2's and 240's were getting quite a bit of surface rust after only a day or two of exposure to the sea air during last deployment. The M-16's though did quite a bit better because they were stored for the most part in a climate controlled armory. One thing I did notice though was that as you take a nice cold M-16 out into a humid 120 degree day, the condensate that builds up on the gun effectively washes away most of the surface lube.

I use Slip 2000 ( coat everything inside the upper behind the the chamber with it) and Tetra grease (on the bearing surfaces, buffer spring, and some trigger parts) on the insides. Then CLP on the outside to give it that nice non-greasy black sheen. I'll rub a little CLP in the bore also if I store it for awhile. Don't like the fresh "Armor all" oil slick look I see in some photos of AR's. It's not a "grease gun"

Not sure and never run it on an AR but have been using it on my Sig for a while and no FTF/FTE with about 900 rounds so far. I purchased this after a lot of good reviews on Sigforum about it. Don't see why it wouldn't work on the AR platform but if not I have CLP standing by.

Don't waste it. If you don't use it, let me have it

I run my BCG dry with only a drop to lube the firing pin and a few more to the rails and friction points. I haven't used many other types of lubes and can't claim that it's better than others, but I'm happy like a clam.

Make sure to clean your parts thoroughly when you apply Militec the first time for it to condition the metal surface.

My AR is always with a 1oz squeeze bottle in the buttstock storage along with the boresnake.

After it stops draining, that's the proper amount of lube.
You can also just hose the BCG down and shake off the excess.

I use Weaponshield EWL on my personal AR's because I never clean them.
I just add lube before each match.

When I went to visit my buddies in Vegas I took my AR and lubed it with Remoil. It lasted 400 rounds before it startred to have feeding issues. When I pulled out the BCG it was bone dry. Wiped a Mobil 1 oil soaked rag on it and put a few drops in the holes to lube the rings and it ran flawlessly through endless ammo boxes of Wolf/brown cow bear and whatever else was cheap. We are talking looney toons in vegas, yelling "CHARLIE"S AT THE WIRE! OPEN FIRE!" mag dumps with the biggest mags I could grab, find, steal, borrow.
