I don't want to damage my new SR1911 LW Commander. So I looked for the very best lubrication stuff. An aluminum frame on a steel slide concerned me. So the best oil is: Lubriplate FMO-AW (350-AW weight) the best grease is Lubriplate SFL NLGI #0. This comes from various sources.

So is this based on your experience or what you read on the web?

I have heard of Lubriplate. It's been used in the automotive field for years.

But my opinion of the best lube for any gun be it steel,plastic or steel is FROG LUBE!!

I have used a bunch of different greases on firearms, Lubriplate included. A partial list of the others includes TW25, Lucas gun grease, Wilson Combat Ultra-lube grease, Hoppe's gun grease, Brian Enos slide glide, and even Phil Wood bicycle grease (which is actually pretty amazing stuff).

And here is what I have learned: they all work pretty good.

I have no opinion on this particular topic.

And for some reason, I'm really craving bacon right now.

GONRA mentions that everybody nos that Molykote "G" MoS2 paste is the very best for these odd lube grease / ANTI-GALLING issues.
>>> But its dirty, REALLY DIRTY unfortunately. <<<
Seems to be all sorts of clear liquid anti-galling greases out there if you can trust 'em.
Just be careful!

Lubriplate is definitely a good grease, it's often recommended for aircraft as an engine assembly lube, since the engine, when first run, will not have any oil pressure. I'm not so sure it's significantly better than any other good lube, however. I've been using some Brownells lube that I believe was formulated specifically for SS to mitigate the galling issues. I've used it sparingly on many firearms over the years and still have over half the jar. I've also used molyplate with good results. I usually use synthetic oil these days, Mobil 1 5W-30, again with good results.
Cheers,
