    Grease??

    No forum is complete without at least 10 threads on which type of grease to use................so, nine more threads like this and we'll be good to go. chug1>

    That being said, I'm a BIG FAN of using that old USGI grease that comes in any assortment of green cans with yellow or white writing. I have five or six cans of it, and have used exactly 1/4 of one can, and most of that was wasted......so the way I see it I'll probably never have to buy grease for the rest of my life.

    What type of grease do you use?

    Oh, about 15+ years ago I splurged on a 1lbs tub of Mobil 1 syn wheel bearing grease. Been threw a few rifles over the years, and I still have enough grease for the next 15+ years.

        Green marine grade synthetic Lucas bearing grease! Bought it a few years ago and put the tube in a clean salsa jar, looks funky on my work bench.

            Lubriplate 130-A, or I like the little grease pots.

            There's also Tetra grease, Hoppe's gun grease, Plastilube, Militech-1, Magnalube-G, Slide Glide.

                    Another Lubriplate 130-A fan here. The brown GI stuff seems better, but I've got so much 130-A there's no compelling reason to switch.

                          Charlie Redfield said that Lubriplate was available in the 40's, also used by railroad buffs on Lionel and HO scale trains

                          Tube is without a Zip Code (pre 1963)
