Yup, at the suggestion of some of the other kids here. I use the light stuff on delicate mechanisms and carry guns. The medium stuff goes on rifle bolts and other less-finicky parts. I've been using it for about three years now, and am not interested in trying anything else.

Chuck turned me on to it a couple of years ago and I really like it.

I use it on the rails of all my guns once they are broken in. I don't suggest anyone using it on brand new guns. I find the grease stays in place on my carry guns even in the hot weather.

Okay, do you use anything in addition to Slide Glide? Do you oil any other components of your pistol?

I'm not sure that you need to, but I add a couple drops of Hoppe's oil down the rails and it becomes slick as snot..It may not help/hurt the process, but it works for me..

There are 3 different tubs that it comes in and 3 different temp ratings the lowest being 30+ degrees...

I only use the slide glide on the rails and oil on everything else. Winter time is never a problem even after being outside cleaning snow for hours I find my gun stays warm being next to my body.

If you're putting oil on the slide glide then what you're doing is diluting it.
