    Lots of good information (but dated). Went looking for the Dupont Teflon Dry Wax lube and discovered it had been discontinued almost two years ago. What are you guys using now? Thanks.

    From post #1.

    The best lube for the pack is Balkamp all-purpose Dry Graphite Lubricant which can be found at most auto parts stores.

    Just a thought, as far as cleaning the trigger pack, I wonder if I could just put the entire pack in my sonic cleaner and let it dry. Would that be ok??? when I purchased my PS90, the trigger pack was pretty much COVERED in oil...which obviously isn't the correct thing to do.

    Why? It is no corrosive and not overly hot...I don't think it would damage any of the components. Not trying to be argumentative, but what is your reasoning?

    The only reason I do not see it being an issue is the fact that many polymer frame hand guns are cleaned in ultrasonic baths, which is essentially the same construction as the trigger pack.

    I personally have been using Hillman Powdered Graphite Lubricant.
    Shot over a thousand rounds through my PS90 and so far so good; no trigger malfunctions nor any apparent undue wear and tear in my trigger pack

    This is a good question. I have no clue because I never used ultrasonic cleaning for anything except on jewelry. So what else they are corrosive too and what they are not corrosive to, I don't know.

    The questions I have is the solution: I know it's not corrosive, but
    How does metal fare against it? The springs, bars, clips, pins, etc, are they galvanized or are they stainless steels?
    Polymers are not all the same. Some polymers are shorter C-H chains, others are longer C-H chains, and some are even isomers. Again, due to my lack of knowledge of ultrasonic solutions, would they have any ill effects on the FNH polymer formula they used in their trigger packs?

    I agree, with what you are thinking. The solution (I mix with distilled water) I use is specifically made for stainless, anodized finishes, polymer, etc...it is actually "gun cleaning" solution not "brass" cleaning solution. The only thing it says to not clean is aluminum (discoloration). It does a great job of removing oil and light dirt, it still takes scrubbing for carbon deposits, but it does help it loosen up. I have yet to see a stain on any metal I have put in.

    I don't want to screw up a trigger pack, but I might try it.

    For lubrication, I use dry Molykote powder, suspended in Denatured Alcohol - ~1/10 after cleaning. I brush it on sliding surfaces, let dry & work the Hammer Group to burnish it into the friction areas, add some more, let dry & assemble, work the action. It is dry & is easy to clean by brushing, I use a dedicated AR Toothbrush. Bolt, Trigger, Rods, anything that slides. It is great to lube the Gas assemblies on Piston & DI guns, no carbon from burning the oils.
