I remember browsing on here and coming across a thread where someone used lubriplate on their rails. I was going to go with the slide glide, but I use lubriplate at my work and it works good. So I know ( or would assume it would ) it would work on a firearm. Thanks

Either I've completely lost my mind, or the above quote is completely nonsensical! :cool:

Lubriplate (white lithium grease) works great, and is recommended by many for the M1 Garand. It may attract crud if you use too much.

then what would be a good grade of slide glide for me? I would be going to the range and using it for home protection. I was thinking about the light grease ( as long as it provides the same protection as the medium grade ) I dont care much for the recoil dampening that it (medium) will provide me.

I use the Wilson Combat oil and grease tubes exclusively (Ultima-Lube) and I'm very happy with both of them. I also like to use their Silicone Gun Cleaning Cloth.

Lube: Ultima-Lube
Cloth: Silicone Gun Cleaning Cloth

I use good old fashioned RiG grease that's been around for years and years and I've never had a problem with it. It wipes off instantly when cleaning, but stays put no matter how hot you get it!

on the cloths... you use that to wipe the gun down when your done right?
Yes, I use it after I'm done at the range to wipe of some of the dirty stuff when it's still fresh. I also use it after I carry all day (I live in humid climate) to assure the gun stays nice and clean.

even the polymer?
Only where is't dirty but not on the trigger and grip.

im thinking about picking up some of that gun butter probably the 3 piece kit for 28 bucks it seems really good and my buddy tried it in his gun awhile back and said he loved it
i think it would be great for my beretta model 1934 since the slide is a bit tough to pull back

I also use Gun Butter. I used to use Wilson's Ultima Lube. RIG from my recollection is great for rust inhibiting, but not as good as a lubricant. JMHO
