    I have used SOTS and other lubes (mostly synthetic grease) on the hinge pin, etc but am curious what other shooters use???

    Go to an auto parts store and buy Mystic JT-6.It will last a lifetime and is cheap.It is a pressure grease. I have used it for several yrs. now and works great. Also, it cleans up easily. Hope this helps, Roy

    Wheel bearing grease. If it's good enough for a wheel spinning a kajillion rpms and holding up a 4,000lb car, it's good enough for the joint roll and pin..

    I use the bearing grease but I was afraid to admit it until Doug did. Same grease I use to grease the fittings on the vehicles and harleys

    I use Pro Shot choke tube lube for both the hinges and tubes. The grease and anti-sieze mixture seem's to do the trick for me.

    For triggers and slides, I use a Lucas full synthetic gun oil.

    Anything slick will work fine- don't worry about such trivialities.

    If it's good enough for.......... well it ought to be good enough for hinge pins.

    You can buy it at a lot of places, but Ace hardware and many bicycle shops sell the 2 Oz. bottle for around $4.00.

    I have used TriFlow on my guns. It seems that the "old " Triflow was more viscous and had a yellow color. The new Triflow that I have purchased seems to much thinner and is clear instead of the " old , thicker , yellow" Triflow. Is it the same? Is it as good?

    I have been using engine assembly lube, thick, sticky and in a tube, its lasted me 25 yrs so far, a dab and a smear works wonders & it does not run or move.

    This one is even more durable that "7 1/2s or 8's" LOL

    STOS is good...for me, a bit too thin for summer heat. Any good high pressure synthetic bearing grease will do great, cost little, and last a loooooong time.

    Key point, after shooting break your gun down and wipe the old grease with the embedded dirt off of the action, and the gun will last ages.
