    I recently purchased a new P-3AT and spent a littlw time on the range last weekend. I did have 3 jams with it, but after doing a lot of reading on here I'm not too worried about it (yet).

    I have noticed that many people refer to "greasing" the slide rails to improve performance, but I haven't seen any recommendations on what grease you should use......any suggestions/recommendations?

    I may also spend some time on the feed ramp area with some sandpaper before the next trip to the range......

    Thanks for the help!

    I use gunslick just because I have a couple of tubes from 20 - 30 years ago. In reality ANY grease will do. Wheel bearing grease is a cheap option.

    I use the Engine Assembly lube with Moly-Graphite. You can get it at Advance auto and it will pretty much last a life time.

    CRC makes this stuff.

    I use RIG universal because I found it on clearance. Grease is more or less grease ::)
