I sure have great great luck with the TW25 lube/grease. I figure if the military swears by it, then I should be happy with it. I use it on all my semi auto's. Whatever lube works great in yur gun, IMO, just stick with it. We all have our own opinions on gun lubes, thats why gander mt. has 3 shelves of that stuff

On the subject of cleaning and lubing (everyone has their favorite cleaning/lubeing potion) like all small guns, the LCP needs to kept clean and well lubed and I prefer grease vs. oil on the rails especially when the gun is new. In addition to first polishing the feedramp and throat which I like to do with these small pocket guns as a matter of routine (emphasis on polishing and NOT removing metal), I have good luck with Brian Enos's Slide Glide Lite. Slide Glide comes in three grades, "Lite" is designed for carry weapons. I know Jocko likes to use 25b grease and I agree, that is an excellent one but there are others. (Sometimes the one on sale is the best one of all ).

But back to Weapons Shield, I think it's good stuff although I still prefer a good gun grease like Slide Glide Lite or 25b on the rails. Having said that, I prefer Weapons Shield CLP over Break Free CLP - I have found Weapons Shield CLP to do a better job of cleaning, specifically the barrel.

I asked for a sample when they were being offered and they sent a needle oiler like the one Howard pictured. It will last me quite a while... ;D

Ditto. Seems to work fine.
I got into the site and did not see a offer for a sample but shot them a email asking if they had any samples and a guy name Gary said give me your add and I will send you one, so I did and a few days later got the needle oiler also.

I saw a post by the owner of the manufacturer over at TFL a couple months ago offering the samples. He said to send an email to Gary asking for a sample. I don't know if there was ever an official policy of giving them away, certainly nothing on their website.

A TON of guys on sigforum use CLP. They love it. I personally have never used it, just because I am going to use up my other stuff. This is what I am using right now. http://www.topgunsupply.com/mc25-cleaner-degreaser-4-oz_pump-spray.html That stuff is a water based solvent that is safe on anything you spray on it (like plastic). I then wipe it dry and clean, then put a coat of RemOil on the gun and then some Enos Slid Glide Lite on the rails.

If I didn't already have every thing known to man (almost) as far as gun cleaning goes, I would try some of the water based degreaser.........It really sounds great!
