Grease? None. Use gun oil. A very light coat. I use froglube which is like a wax.

Things apply on the slide to the frame?

Technically, metal to metal should use Moly (70% up), but looks ppl don't use that on replicas but mostly on springers only... Why?

grease and moly by nature are not suitable for slides. You want the slide to move as freely as possible for the fastest action. Same for parts like hammers and such. Lightly oiled. No grease. Moly on springers is for the piston seals and sometimes the spring for tuning.

I think moly is suited for use on steel to steel contact. I could be wrong but Im not sure how effective it would be with aluminum.
Are the replicas mostly aluminum?

I use a synthetic grease on my rifle bolts. Called RFG, comes in a little syringe. Apparently it is unaffected by temperature. Designed for automatic weapons. Anyway, I like it.

Recently picked up a grease made by ballistol. Guncer, ceramic grease? I donno. Haven't checked it out yet. But ballistol makes a good product....

Sorry I can't answer your question.
I think a very light Teflon coating might help.

The frame is probably zinc alloy or aluminum alloy. I would try a silicone brake lubricant or a Teflon lube. You can get Permatex brand at CanTire. Oil would work but it won't stay in place.

As was said, moly paste works well on steel-to-steel such as piston bodies, compression chambers, pivot pins, detent wedges/balls. springs, metal guides, thrust washers, cocking foot, cocking slots, etc.

I bought these two products, or will I have to apply them and are they perfect for metal on metal?

I use this one on most of my gun, apply a very light coat and after each use I use a very small brush and re-spread what's on the gun, never add grease, just re-spread what' there...

A non-airgun but lube related question in line with the original question of lube for metal on metal.

I just got a new paper shredder. Some shredders come with a bottle of oil or with lube sheets. This one came with neither.

Any ideas or experience on the best type of lube for these cutters?
Thanks,
Rob27
