    You basically need a degreaser, a lubricant and occasionally a bore solvent. There are hundreds of good products out there. Pick a few and don't sweat it

    For decades, I used nothing but Hoppes #9 and Breakfree CLP. It still works well but there are more enviro-friendly products available.

    For the last couple of years I've been using 91% alcohol (available at the drug store, put it in a garden spray bottle) as a degreaser, CLP as a lubricant and Hoppes#9 for the bore once or twice a year.
    "With that being said, I understand that human nature has a way of filtering fairness through one’s own views and desired outcome."

    The "enviro-friendly" point is a good one, and something I too frequently overlook. And it's not just enviro-friendly that should be a concern -- some of the stuff available isn't really human-friendly, either.

    Any slip 2000 product will work. Use the degreaser then lube

    If you want environmentally friendly/human friendly, I use Weapon Shield CLP on all my pistols now. A little thicker than Breakfree and stays where you put it.
    It also doesn't stink. I just got some more from Midway as they were running a free shipping promotion.

    There it is on page 28 of the FNS Owners Manual (http://www.fnamerica.com/files/9813/5232/6133/2012_FNS_OM.pdf) as pointed out by Aggro:

    Notice! Never soak your firearm in hydrocarbons, ammonia, trichloroethylene or Teflon-based lubricants as they can cause damage to your pistol.

    The Safariland web page (https://www.safariland.com/gun-lubri...ant-15337.html) says the following:

    Break-Free CLP has superior lubricating qualities that keeps parts working smoothly. CLP’s proprietary formula contains multiple ingredients including specially treated PTFE for improved boundary film strength that reduces friction, retards wear, and stops build-up of foreign matter.


    Therefore, the bunch of us (like me) who use Breakfree CLP need to reconsider what we are doing. I may go with Mobil 28 Av grease until I can figure out what is better. There are always lots of opinions on lubricating guns, but the prohibition by FN against using Teflon (PTFE) is unequivocal.
