    Noooooo! Never use WD-40 on any firearm, airregardless of what any person might want to tell you. It's not a lubricant, it is an emulsifier

    Rem-oil is always a safe call. Here is a photo of some good examples. No this is not the Bible of what you should always use, but good starter examples. The first three are cleaners and the rest are various forms of lubrication

    I was just kidding. I've got Rem Oil and Hoppe's 9 cleaner.

    What about jags and brushes? Any special there?

    I just wanted to make sure that I squash that notion for anybody reading it, or people just starting out. :rimshot: As far as the jags and brushes, I don't really see one brand being better over another but I myself prefer using nylon brushes over brass brushes.

    Has anybody used the Colt branded gun lube/grease? It's in a small aerosol can.

    Found like 4 cans the other day, never used it, not sure they still work but figured I'd ask and see in case I should just toss them in the trash.

    I highly recommend that you give this stuff a try. They started out as a motorcycle racing company back in the 70's. My uncle started the company and now they have moved into a ton of lubricants and cleaning products, firearms included.

    My uncle sent me and my brother a whole cleaning/lube kit to test out because he knows we are gun freaks and he wanted our opinion. The shit is pretty damn good. Hope this helps.

    CLP is always great for the quick wipe down after a day of shooting and to just maintain it. But for the time consuming true break down I like that product I posted above.

    Suggestions for night sights to go on my xdm 4.5 tactical? The plain white dots aren't cutting it, and the factory raised sights keep it from fitting in my alien gear holster correctly. Debating if I wanna try a 2 dot setup or not.
