Are you going to eat it or shoot it? It will gum up and go rancid with time. Olive oil is not a high heat lover and will burn on

Compare the cost of the Glock, the ammo and the lubricant. Doesent make sense to try and save $ on the lubricant. Use a cleaner/lubricant that was made for the purpose. But that is the way I feel, your opinion may vary.

question for you barstool: going back to my gas station days a 100 years ago i always thought the purpose of a particular grease was determined by color, whereas all my new glocks come with a goldish color grease whats the difference between that and the white grease?

I agree, Tex Why is someone always trying to find a shortcut?...If I'm spending $400 on a new Glock, I sure as heck ain't putting anything on it that's not designed specifically designed for it...

We use lubriplate white lithium grease in wheel bearings on boats because it doesn't wash away like standard grease when backing into a lake. Being synthetic grease it handles high heat too. The copper colored grease is copper anti-seize lubricant for long term storage if needed. it is called "Copper Guard" and seems to be used in a lot of foundry’s and areas of high heat

so if i understand you right they all have somewhat of a different speciality but most grease as we know it today would suffice on a gun.
and btw thanks

yea, you can spend a lot of money on lubes but I use regular all-purpose grease out of the garage.

For sure in certain climates, specifically designed lubes are better than bacon grease, crisco lard, WD-40, and baby oil... :D
