No grease?

Mobil 1 oil only. It doesn't burn off in the summer heat, nor thicken up in winter's cold. And it doesn't attract dirt and fouling like grease.

Our local gun range is a very dusty and sandy environment, and I never have a problem with Mobil 1, even in my 22's.

Me too.  I quit using Grease, was attracting so much dirt it felt like a lapping compound..

Retain, attract, it's nit picking words. Bottom line is with grease, your going to get more dirt mixed in with it than oil.

The conditions we shoot in are like being in the desert, and grease doesn't cut it. Mobil 1 has never failed me, even in finicky .22 autos which have real problems in dusty, sandy conditions.

i've had great luck using a light coat of grease upon which i add a drop of oil onto each rail site. Learned this from a well respected gunsmith and competitor.
