Well, some interesting anwers cmae in. I, myself, have used and continue to use Rig. I apply it gooey on the end of a Q-tipo, then spread it around with the clean end, then wipe off any excess areas. I asked this question because I overheard two old coots arguing back and forth the other day. I didn't stick around as I wanted to get in the woods!

Very thin oil with PTFE such as Master Teflon. Any Grease or thick oil is not suitable for hinge pin, 'cause it collects dust and sand and hinge pin wearing as result.

I never hear of anyone using any graphite, finer than talcum powder, doesn't attract dirt and will get into the harder to reach spots.

I'm with Geno on this. A very thin application of synthetic clean and lube product such as Tri-Flow or Breakfree applied after each cleaning and allowed to dry is all the lubrication a hinge pin needs for an honest day of hunting or a 200 target day at the range. If you shoot more than that between cleaning/lubricating I suppose you could be needing to pack your hinge pin like a wheel bearing with a product like the Mobil Oil synthetic lubricants.

I guess I'm going to have to put zerk fittings on my hinge pins.

Mobil 1 15W-50 for bearing points. CLP for internals.

I'm going to install the new zerks into the hinge pin recess on my Parkers and Fox pin gun, so that they don't snag on my vest. I'll have to figure out another approach for the other guns.

Mobil 1 chassis grease. If I don't happen to have my lube available, I'll use anything this side of pork fat. The specific pressures and surface speed of the bearing are what drive the type of lubrication required. Gun hinges are about as far down the list as the list goes for both.
