Probably any good dry lube spray would work just as well but that's the stuff I bought. Goes on wet and drys quickly to a dry film lube that doesn't attract dirt and dust. My slide moves smoothly with no jerks or shudders and that's all you're looking for. It's not like a slide moves in and out so often or fast that it's going to wear out any time soon from lack of grease, you just don't want it to get sticky.
