    I use Mobil 1 in my Kimber Stainless. It requires a fairly thick oil that can withstand heat. Yes, I do have to re-oil about once a week or so. I use Al Cass Fast trumpet valve oil on my trumpet valves, not on my Kimber. On the other hand, I wouldn't use Mobil 1 on Trumpet valves. Al Cass, 3 in 1, Rem Oil, and such are too thin for a Kimber. Don't know about others.

    I use Frog Lube. The key to its effectiveness is heating the surfaces before you apply so that it actually melts into the pores of the surfaces. I use a heat gun and treat small areas at a time such as one half of one side of the frame at a time in order to ensure the surfaces are very hot. (Use gloves or thick cloth so that you don't slack off on the heat). It is much less messier than many other lubricants and I have found that it cleans better than Hoppes. I use Hoppes to clean first then the Frog Lube and it brings off more than the Hoppes does. If you do not melt it in, you will find a thicker residue after shooting. If you do melt it in, this residue will not be there.
    Like someone's grandpa used to say "I can sit here quietly and let everyone think I'm stupid, or I can say something and confirm it for them."

    For several years now I've used pennzoil 5W-20 synthetic motor oil as a preservative/rust preventative. I have a synthetic motor bearing grease I apply to load bearing surfaces. The synthetic oil does very well preventing rust, my Premier II has been both a daily carry and duty gun that gets out in the weather when I do hasn't had a rust spot since I started using it.
