Anti-seize is the cancer of the automotive world.
Love the stuff, but Jesus.... You can't use it without finding traces of it all over your face, toolbox, the car, etc...
Don't know how that happens.

I've never been all that impressed with white lithium grease.. It's ok for household squeaks and garage doors. Probably ok for AK rails since this is pretty basic stuff. I don't keep the stuff on hand except lubriplate 105? but just for my Bridgeport mill.

If I'm in my shop I'll wipe a stray glob off one of the presses and wipe it on the rails.. We use mostly mobil 1 synthetic grease because it goes rancid slower and has less VOCs. I like spindle oil or a little way lube as well.. Again we are not talking about high requirements here. The amount of grease used is like a 1/4" round blob for the whole gun

Basically any oil grease will help the guns last longer. Grease would not be ideal for in a sand storm but at the range it's probably not a problem and will likely make it last longer.

Ever use "high spot blue"? It's like blue ballpoint pen ink except in never dries. And you use it by coating several inches of a granite block in the stuff and rubbing parts on it.. It's a curse... One day if I every need to go john wick on someone I'll stick a single tube full under their car door handle.. Their entire world will be blue inside of a day.

Haha, can be messy stuff. I used to hate using it, but about put it on everything nowadays. Seemed like the best choice out of what I had at the time. Tacky, and the suspended particles provide a tiny tiny amount of wear/shock resistance. I wouldn't be scared to run the rifle dry or whatever though, did that during building and testing. Its an AK....lube with cat pee if you like...it'll keep on running. :lol:

i followed Josh Froelich’s video and have been using Lucas extreme grease (they gave away a free tube at a match) for 2 years and probably 40 multi-gun/3 gun matches (1 and 2 day matches). Before I figured out that I needed to go sparingly on the grease, I got a malfunction on one out of about 100-150 rounds, after I scaled back the amount of grease, I had no malfunctions except when I got a bunch of mud in it and even then it was 3 out of about 60 in some pretty horrible conditions that would have done just as bad or worse to any shotgun. I run a fine bead down the rails, use my finger to coat them and get off the excess, the use a little on the bolt and carrier where the wear marks are and on the trigger where the carrier rides against it. At one point over the summer, I went about 5 consecutive matches between cleanings with no malfunctions and it could have gone longer but I felt I was already pushing it, turned out it wasn’t very dirty.

I do run 1250 AAs almost exclusively during matches but have been forced to run some bulk 3 dram stuff here and there and it’s done fine with that too.
