The permatex lube (thats what I called white grease) that Jordan mentioned works great. I use it on my SCAR and it stays there for a while. Used to use it for my pistols too, until I tried Illusions dry-lube method, which seemed to be easier to maintain.

Can you explain the dry lube method please? I havent heard that before.

Oh and the permatex stuff I was talking about is the clear stuff that comes in the the bigger 85gram bottle. They have that and the white stuff as well as a graphite lube but im not sure about that one.

Yeah, Im standing at Crappy Tire and all I can find is Jigaloo White Lithium Super Grease and MotoMaster Silicone Lube.
Would either work fine for GBBP

Go to the auto section!! Permatex super lube in 85g bottle. If they only have the one listed as motor sport, that works fine as well.

white grease is not the same as the Permatex Ultra Slick Multi-Purpose Synthetic Grease

Ultra slick synthetic grease : http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows....jsp?locale=en

White grease : http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows....jsp?locale=en

Please don't confuse the two.

Thanks for the links
Turns out they don't have any in stock, thats why I spent 20min combing the isles for it. Doesn't help that none of the staff knew what it was or where it would be, only after showing them the link did they clue in *hurp durp*

Some canadian tire stores have a pretty sad auto section (strange for a store with tire in your name). I havent been able to find anything other than the motosport lube. Same stuff but smells a bit stronger.

Sorry to bump a super old thread but I gotta ask. I too have Permatex Ultra Slick Multi Grease in the squeeze tube and right on the back it says safe for metal, plastic, rubber, wood etc. It also states in bold that it has Petroleum in it. Now everyone says that petroleum eats rubber and plastic and I agree. Now how is this product safe for rubber o rings and plastic if it has petroleum in it? I just dont understand how they say its safe for all these parts if it indeed has petroleum. Can you shed light on this and do you know anyone else that actually uses this as a gear grease? Thanks

White Lithium grease mixed with fine graphite powder applied to metal on metal contact points. Work the action for a while and then remove all of the excess.

I did it to my pistols for about half an hour each.

The way Brian had explained it, the white lithium is just used as a carrier for the fine graphite to work it's way into all of the pits in the metal without being too messy. Benefit is that there is no residual "wet" lube to pick up any dust, dirt or grime, pretty much eliminating the need to further lubricate metal on metal contact points.

The white lithium can be obtained at a Home Hardware in a tub as opposed to a spray and the fine graphite should be obtainable at any hardware store near the lock/key making section. YMMV
