I use Dexron transmission fluid. I don't like calling it "ATF" when using it on guns. I haven't tried anything else yet, so I can't really compare them.

Someone mentioned wax. I put a little Minwax paste wax on the slide, barrel, and magazines on my newly-purchased Walther P1. They looked like they'd been degreased. The wax helped the color (what is that finish, Parkerized or just enamel paint?), repels water a little, and it's not slippery or messy.

I like Breakfree CLP because my gunsmith, who I respect, likes it, and because I believe there's significant hx behind it, having undergone extensive government competitive trials and apparently having won the contract for the military.
