The aroma

Mr.Hoppes #9,where have you been all my life? This smells so good I may where it as cologne and really turn Gigi on...I got my recoil springs for the PCII 9mm&45 yesterday and glad to say not a problem replacing them.I practiced taking the guns apart and putting them back together and it wasn't as bad as I had thought.My question is I use REM oil or Hoppes oil on a regular basis to lube the firearms but I watched a video where the person used a white grease for the slide before reassembly. Any advise or other remedies out there in Kimber Forum land?

You gotta love good old #9. I wouldn't use grease on your slide. Stick with a good oil.

Kimber says not to use grease on their guns but I've been playing with some "Brian Enos slide glide" on an older well broken in 1911 and I like the way it stays put.
