I am new at owning a P-17 and most of any knowledge I posses on lubes for it come from post starting June 2013.That is 6 years back. We all know how quickly new, more better products come to market and I suspect lubes have advanced also. Not saying white lithium isnt good enough and probably will continue to be up to the task. For myself I am going to use Super Lube. The videos Brian from EdGun West posted for the R5 recommends the use of Super Lube. Excellent for o-rings and other areas as well. If it works for a 2000$ gun, should work for a 30$ one.
