No, but any quality gun oil will do. I use Eezox and then add CLP after the Eezox dries.

I have not tried Gun Butter either.
The Eezox works great for me and is better priced for doing multiple guns.
The Gun Butter seems very pricey at $15.50 / 1/4oz shipped.
The Eezox which is 4oz. for around $7 and is a very good lube in my opinion.

Haven't tried the Gun Butter, however, really like Eezox; seems to do everything I need a lubricant to do.

I have used it and like it a lot; still have a fair amount left as it goes a long way. It is very slick, durable, and long lasting on the weapon. Gun Butter has the lubricity and viscosity of oil but with some of the substance properties of grease.

Here is a link on Gun Butter and suggested 1911 lubrication.

I only use butter on my bread. †:) HAHA

I use Ultima-Lube from Wilson Combat. It works well. I use this to lube all of my pistols.

Acurate Plating & Weaponry recomends Slick 50 for cars. I have never used it. They said they use it on most of their custom weapons.

I use Mili-Tec 1 grease /conditioner on my slides. I like it a lot and the surface gets better over time.
Only one gun from enough ...

Has anyone used Gun Butter on their Rohrbaugh?

You actually got me thinking with this post; I did some research and got interested enough to try some. Today I did a thorough cleaning and re-lubed my pup with Gun Butter.

It's interesting stuff ...

First of all, while it's an oil it sort of stays put when you put a drop on a flat surface - it doesn't bleed out or spread so it "acts" like a fluid with high surface tension - like a grease - in this regard. I lubed my pup several hours ago and there is not a single sign of oil migrating out from any internal surface.

But put a drop on a bearing (like the trigger pivot on a pup) and it immediately wicks into the cracks and disappears (think of how some formulas of Crazy Glue wick into joints) - in this regard it's behaving like a fluid with very low surface tension.

Once assembled I tested the trigger and racked the slide (too cold to go shooting right now) and - it feels different - sort of hard to describe. Before when you racked it you could hear the clink of precise surfaces making contact - now it seems to rack a slight bit easier but the sound is more muted, a bit less "metallic". The trigger feels about the same which is to say just as smooth as always.

I'm intrigued by what I see and plan to try it on one of my other pistols shortly.

I agree; there is nothing quite like it but not on toast.

I have put it on my pistol, but because of some issues I have not be able to go to the range. I understand it is supposed to make cleaning a lot easier
