Too much grease equals a magnet for dirt and grime. Like the old hair creme ditty, "A little dab will do ya!!" -Lloyd 🍻
I am know in the process of total dissasembly of five M1s and 3 M14 clones that were greased with Lubriplate 130-A . Lubriplate 130-A turned into a crusty and hard substance to remove. I am know using Wilson Combat Ultima-Lube Grease.What M1A lube do you prefer?
What others do you use?
Lubriplate is an operating grease, not for storage. It is intended to be applied with that little flat-tipped applicator that comes with the USGI container. A small dab, rubbed into the few locations shown in FM 23-8. It should be cleaned off and reapplied after each use.I am know in the process of total dissasembly of five M1s and 3 M14 clones that were greased with Lubriplate 130-A .

Oh, and Ballistol. Gotta love something that has worked so well for all these years and has so many uses.I use USGI grease that comes in the little pots with the yellow tops made to fit in the buttstock. As far as oil goes, whatever I have in hand, usually Rem Oil or Hoppe's gun oil.
well it’s the Army. We got fairly new radios recently as a test bed for the regular Army, the radios being previously only used by SF. Guess what we didn’t get? Spare parts, instruction manuals, classes on how to properly use these new radios, intructions on how to set them up/fill/technical side of things. They were amazing until we needed to update them or fill them, which turns out they don’t even operate the same as every other radio we have so it kinda blew our minds. Then stuff stated to break after about 6 months and we attempted to order new parts of which Battalion said “you have these?” And then brigade said “you have these? Where did you get them from?” And then division denied the parts order because “while you have them and use them, the Army says you are not entitled to have this equipment so we will not support it”Pardon my ignorance as a civilian, but I find the army not having grease available pretty incredible. Wouldn’t they at least need grease for their vehicles? Seems less than ideal for that rifle to say the least.
