I really like to use marvel mystery oil, it works great for me as a lubricant and also as a rust preventative.

G96 for me. No grease in any of my guns. It attracts more dirt, and gets stickier than oil when the temps drop.

The only time I have ever heard of using grease on firearms is for when you want to "stash" one.
You grease the gun and I mean pack it. Wrap it up with a greasy tarp, hide it and when you get it out 25 years later you can clean it up and shoot.

When my grandfather passed away there was a rifle he had hidden like this. He had tied a rope to a rafter and dropped the rifle down inside a wall. When we pulled on the rope..out it came. Long story as to why he hid it.

Last month we had one of the chemical analyst guys from Hydro Tex come in to our shop and do a training seminar on their line of synthetic lubricants and when it was over I asked him about the use of different lubricants for guns. He said "Oil is for use in pressurized, submerged, or splash lube systems. When you use it on your gun, once parts run over each other a few times, the oil is just there to prevent rust. If your ultimate goal is to actually keep those parts lubed then you want to use grease. The lubricator in grease is just oil, but it is mixed into a soap-like material to keep it from running away from where it is needed. But for what you're doing, definitley, make sure that it will be stable in the temperatures you are useing them in."
