    I have used CMD Grease for several years now on all my guns choke tubes no matter what the metal and have never had a tube stuck. With routine cleaning and relube most any choke lube (grease or anti-seize) will work fine. Just my 2 pennies but I believe that oils no matter how viscous should be avoided for choke tube lube.

    I have also used CMD with perfect success. Any grease will work but I like CMD because it is stickier or thicker and that also helps keep the tube from coming loose.

    Silver (nickel-base) antisieze is recommended for stainless steel; use copper base for mild steel. Grease is just a soap and an poil; it will burn at low temps which is a particular problem if your chokes get sooty around the outside (meaning they leak). If you want your chokes to stay tight, weld them in...don't rely on thick grease to keep them from coming loose. Either that or check them more than once a year.
