I use Tetra on just about all my guns. A standard to heavier recoil spring will minmize wear and tear with hot loads.

Thanks for the quick reply! I’ve used a heavier recoil spring in my Colt for that load, but experienced fte and ftf issues as a result when using standard pressure ball loads for practice.I use Tetra on just about all my guns.

Thanks! I’ll be sure to watch.Here's a video by Sig that tells of their recommendation...
To make a long story short: Anything that says 'gun lubricant' on the label.
RIG® Universal™Gun Grease, 1.5 oz. Tube - Birchwood Caseywhats RIG? Can i Use Gun Butter?
Thanks for the link!There are "different" greases, some lubricate, and some are protectants to prevent corrosion.
While the Rig "Grease" that I'm familiar with is a protectant, and not a lubricant, however Rig does make a Stainless Lubricant, that comes in a tube.
Most any lubricant grease will do, as all that's needed is a thin film. Most firearm product manufacturers have a version that would be fine, I currently use Slip 2000s Extreme Weapons Grease, but have used others as well. Even automotive Wheel Bearing Grease can be used, but as I've said, just a thin film is all that is needed.
A great reference... (1) Info - Flork's Lubrication of SIG pistol rails | SIG Talk
Excellent reminder, thanks!Heavier recoil springs will serve you better. Especially if running Underwood ammo or actual +p ammo. I've used tetra and super lube. Both have never given me issue. Super seems to stay best and runs sigs great - also cheap (there are assuredly products out there better). If you lube and oil your pistol heavy, remember to clean it often. More lube/oil on a carry piece attracts everything it comes in contact with.
