    I've been using Synco Super Lube and am just about out, it's been OK but am wondering if there isn't something better out there.

    I have used the small foil packs of anti-seize lube found in auto parts stores. They are meant to put on the threads of spark plugs so they don't seize up. They are cheap and disposable so there is no mess in your gun bag or case. They work well for me. Duane

    Automotive anti-sieze works for me. One tube/container seems to last forever.

    CMD lube. The stuff is thick and will never allow your choke tube to come loose or seize.

    Nickel anti-sieze on the threads...very dark gray color...made specifically for stainless steel connections.

    Any light grease on the outside of the barrel.

    Nothing wrong with the Super lube if you like it...it works well as anything

    I think taking the tubes out and regreasing them periodicly is more important that what grease you use is. I use STOS about two or three times per year and have never had a problem.

    How about teflon tape like would be used for plumbing?The only question might be how much heat can it withstand.
