That copper-colored material is a combination of BOTH lubrication AND anti-seize compound. As a lubricant alone, there are other lubes that do the job better, but the anti-seize capability is important in a new gun. It also has an important advantage for a commercial operation: it will not evaporate during storage. Since a new Glock may possibly sit in storage for years, that longevity can outweigh other attributes.
