I'm not a big fan of one product that is supposed to do it all. I use Hoppe 9 as solvent to clean, then use Rem oil as a cleaner and lubricant for the inside of the barrel. That generally gets additional carbon out.

Recently I've begun using a very very thin coat of marine/white grease to minimize wear on the rails and outside of the barrel. Oil is good, but unfortunately it migrates giving you a false sense of lubrication. In theory the downside to using grease is that exploding particles will also stick to it. But in practical use I haven't seen any extra dirt.

I may be a little too anal. I think today's guns are so well made that if you clean your gun after each trip to the range it will still be working after you're gone.
