I found a few white papers and essay's (Lee Emerson) saying that Lubriplate 130-A is the correct GI grease to use to lube the M14. Here is a link to one of them. The M14 GI manual also give a GI number to grease too.
Me, too. The modern white grease I have used for years turns brown, grey or green and seems to attract rust. Just bought somes tubes of Super Lube and re-lubed my carbines, M1's, Krag, '03's and M1A's. We'll see what happens.
Lubriplate goes on my M14s and 1911. Tried a few other products, including some of the new technology lubricants, but keep coming back to the old standard. It works well and costs little, a combination I like.
Mobile 1 Sythentic in the can or tube is excellent grease that meets all the required specifications and is very inexpensive when compared to others. Buy in automotive supply store. I think a can of it which is around a pint or so is about seven dollars and it is a lifetime supply. I also use on my M1 Garands with excellent results. Different looked at the specs a while back and it met what was needed and then some. Doesn't ticken up in very cold temps or run in hot ones. Lubriplate is nice if you are into vintage greese but there is not need for it.
