Hi everbody! I have purchased a new Kimber Custom Classic in Stainless steel. I will be picking it up on Jan 2nd and I have a question concerning proper slide lubrication. I want to do get it right the first time. Is their really a BEST material to use on stainless or has the galling problem associated with stainless steel really been solved with recent production firearms by using different types of stainless steel between the slide and frame? Sorry for my paranoia but this is my first 1911....I just want to take care of it properly..Thank you all for your advice!!

Enigma, Action Magic II from Brownells is IMO the best lubricant for any auto pistol rails. George
