I just got my 1911 out. Long story. Has been in storage for 4 years along with my Beretta, Smith, Browning. So, I’ve done nothing to them.
I got Hoppes 9, Weapon Shield, Ballistol, and Eezox.
It’s so darn frustrating trying to do what’s best when nobody agrees what is best. It pees my OCD self off.
I got that Seecamp 32 the former owner of company says to use Eezox on his pistols.
It makes sense in a 1911 to use grease on the slide and rails. Some say don’t.
This is worse than choosing an oil for your car.
Hickok45 swears by Ballistol. I truly respect him. But Ballistol is predominately mineral oil. Is that bad??? Are synthetics better ???
Then after going out on these limbs, I lean back toHoppes 9 to clean and Weapon Shield (FP-10) to lube. Maybe a little grease on the rails. That was why I asked about the Cherrybalmz.
I got too much time on my hands.
