Does anyone use Eezox or Mobil 28 aviation grease???
I use wheel bearing grease on my weapons. Does the job
I've used about anything available over the years, from 30 weight to LSA to CLP. Now I'm using leftover synthetic motor oil leftover from oil changes.
We used to use something called "Dry Cleaning Solvent" in the military, that stuff is like paint stripper and about 400 kinds of toxic.
You can really strip about 90% of the crap off a dirty weapon with hot, near boiling water. Lube afterwars heavily to avoid a surprise.
FWIW, we used to use 10W30 engine oil on our Ma Deuce, and had zero issues doing so. I have used Mobil 1 several times, and it seems to work very well.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

I have a good friend that was a weapons tech, a W-3 when he retired.
He was a Tanker when he was enlisted and was always and likely still is a bit cranky and crusty.
Anyway, he got some gruff from a unit that got new tanks and also 240's and M-2's. Apparently their M-2's wouldn't fire. He shows up and checks head space and timing and pours about 8 oz of 30 weight in each M-2.
He fixed everyone of them by simply oiling them, they love to run a bit wet.
I think he called about 17 NCO's Dumb ass before he left the range.
Motor oil, animal fat, vegetable oil, 50 different types of grease yes.
Shtf that 1 lbs jar of never seize that will last you a life time will be gone in no time if you waste it on small arms. Don’t waste the never seize on small arms.
Don’t forget to stock some Loc-Tite, it can be just as important if using scopes or alternative optics.
Grease in the summer, motor oil in the winter. If it's well below freezing, I use my mixture of 10w30 cut with mineral oil.

I wonder if there is a way to refine the salt out of the fat. Maybe wash it? Dissolve the salts in water and rinse it out. Could be very time consuming, but would probably lower the salt content, and in a long term SHTF or TEOTWAWKI event it might be worth the effort.
I used the tool oil in my Tantal, my 20" A1 style AR and my old Stevens 620. All ran flawlessly.
When he came on board the previous Supervisor had lost all control over accountability of our "Special Tools". I warned the guys I was working with as to what was about to happen. I got my own gear wired tight as a ticks ass and waited for the fireworks.
Back on subject I think it's called lithium, it's a white grease I put on all the moving surfaces i.e. where metal slides against metal on all of my weapons. Great stuff.
I've been using Eezox for a couple years now. It's just too soon to tell how well it works. A little goes a long way. It leaves a slippery surface after it dries. I believe it is a great product but only time will tell how great.
