white lithium grease.
ps; most gun oils are just normal machine oils with a couple of additives. alright for what they sell them as, but in this case you want something that will stick to the bits. WLG is the stuff they use on the moving bits of flight sticks from the factory, as well as stuff like the moving parts in any optical drive, some childrens toys where the lubrication will never be exposed to the light of day, etc.
something like this used sparingly, but with full coverage of the contact surfaces, will sort things out nicely.
White Lithium Grease
Any dielectric grease or white grease should do the trick. Plus you can find it in almost any home improvement or auto parts store.
I had a problem like this on an old Portastudio.
I put some white lithium grease on the friction-prone portions of the head assembly. That is, any surface that slid against another surface, barring the head itself.
It took some finagling to get it in all the right spots. Then I had to manually move the assembly back and forth, but it eventually started engaging/disengaging normally.
I followed a lube guide on here and lubed all my stabs with this lithium grease and it's been great. This stuff is super cheap and makes a world of difference.
White lithium grease is generally the direction I go.

The most important thing is to not mix natural and synthetic grease. White lithium based grease, like this one I use, is most recommended.
Dielectric lithium grease
I used this and it is better: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000HBNV58/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1
If you need grease grease, I use this or this depending on what I'm greasing.
But for oil, I use Ballistol or Hoppes oil.
Can you post a link of the product(red lithium grease from Walmart). I saw your pics back when and looked at walmart and couldn't find it, I got some white lithium grease on Amazon. Did you buy the syringe at Walmart also?
Someone here on reddit posted something like this https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-80345-White-Lithium-Grease/dp/B000HBNV58 will also work.
But I cant confirm this!
Permatex Lithium Grease
should be able to find it just about anywhere, it's pretty common stuff. I have this kind, but any other brand would probably be fine:
Maybe try something thicker? This is what i use on my stabs, http://www.amazon.com/Permatex-80345-White-Lithium-Grease/dp/B000HBNV58/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1465174527&amp;sr=8-3&amp;keywords=white+lithium
No problem. You'll probably be cleaning lint etc mostly from it if you plan to carry it around. I tend to go a little overboard when I clean my guns, but I typically don't clean my rifles/shotguns all that frequently and will go between multiple thousands of rounds before I do.
When I clean my guns I use a mat like this to absorb oils etc and this to get all of the black carbon out of it. I use these to clean the bore/inside of the barrel. I use these and these for the hard to reach places that still have something building up on them.
When you're done cleaning everything, you'll want to make sure you put oil/grease on all the components that come in contact with other parts. Basically if it rolls oil it, if it slides grease it. I use this on the slide/rails where they contact each other and use this in most other places. Then I'll wipe down the exterior with this.
Really all you have to make sure you do is get most of the debris out of the gun, and make sure you have oil on surfaces that create friction or need some kind of rust preventative coating.
I have Prime, and even with prime there is a minimum order of $25 or they won't ship it out.
For example i need some grease, but couldn't order without adding more to my cart. These are called Add-on items
