I've been using the Disotec XFR from Blue Wonder since it came out and really like it. Its somewhat spendy, but a little goes a long way. I think you can still get a sample tube for just shipping costs on Blue Wonder's web site. The sample tube lasted nearly a year. Break Free CLP is also good.
On the non contact surfaces I use EEsox for protection.

I use Militec-1 on the rails of all of my pistols. Switched to that about two years ago, and haven't had any problems, I use it on both my range guns and my carry guns.

I haven't shot my XD since using it, but I'm liking gun butter. I bought the Blue Wonder 3 pack and some gun butter from pistol-gear, and I should have enough supplies for quite a while.

Nah. Its from the military days when you could only use the fist and middle name initials and last name on the flight suit name tags. "RW" got me branded as R Dub.

Slide glide from Brian Enos' web site for me. This stuff works great on both my guns and doesn't evaporate like light oils. It is the only thing I ever use.

I use BreakFree CLP Weapon Wipes to clean everything but the inside of the barrel (some basic bore solvent for that). Then I use Blue Wonder Armadillo to "wax" the outside. Then I use Militec-1 on the slide/frame contact points. I'm only ~300 rounds through the gun, but no slide wear so far. I know that's not saying much, but I've had no trouble with rust at all (except when my FFL guy brought it to my desk at work after having it for a week while my permit cleared. He pretty much let everyone in the office play with it and then didn't wipe it down :evil: :wink: )

I LOVE how armadillo is completely dry and doesn't show fingerprints!!! It's a hassle to apply, but definitely worth it in my book!

So, in short, Militec-1.

I watched a rep from Tetra use his products on a new 1911 clone and a range rental 92F with a bout 2000 rds thru it.

Both guns dropped over half a pound on measured trigger pull after being lubed. (The range gunsmith measured the trigger pull before and after, not the sales rep.) This stuff does not leave a sticky residue after you wipe it down.

He used a tiny bit of the grease on the slides. spray oiled the triggers and hammer. It was amazing stuff.

I haven't used it yet, but I plan on buying it when my current cleaning suplies start to run out.
