I did/have and did not find satisfactory information. That said I may not have utilized the somewhat confusing search engine to it's best.whtsmoke said:do a search on this subject it was discussed at lenght but some of the ones were stos, progold any of the greases form the gun mfgs.
I doubt it,, but I have used some Moly greases that were RED and got stains on my vest. Like I said, any grease will probably work,, just your choice as there will be a 100 answers as to THE BEST grease.DEG said:
Is STOS a type of grease or a brand of grease?ruger4570 said:You won't go wron with STOS. Of course, I suspect any quality grease will work just fine. I just like STOS because it is "clear" and won't show on the shoulder of my shirt or vest after using it.
Its a brand...(STOS)...Slicker Than Owl Sh*t!claydoctor said:

There is no continuous heavy load on the bearing surfaces, but the impact loads upon firing can be extremely high. Chris Sells at Heym USA pointed this out to me and suggested I use a high-impact grease such as is obtainable at heavy equipment places - I use Sta-Plex Extreme Pressure red grease that doesn't get pushed out from between the surfaces. It has about the highest rating I could find. Got a tube of it at my machine tool dealer.Baron23 said:.....There is not any really heavy load on the bearing surfaces of a shotgun, you are looking for two characteristics, slippery so as to avoid galling and stuff that won't melt away in summer heat (if you are a clay target shooter....summer is competition season and often a gun gets shot a lot in very hot weather. Skeet or trap doubles in almost any weather will get a gun fairly warm).
