Glock Frame Treatment

Some of the pictures on here show frames with a high shine. What are you guys treating them with? Looks like car tire detail treatment. Maybe its just the lighting.

Just for clarification, do you really mean the frame, or the slide?

I'm talking about the nylon frames. Some of the pistols posted look like they are detailed. I was just curious.

I thought that was what you meant.

You see, if you lubricate your Glock with Mobil 1 or Frog Lube, those lubricants wick into the entire frame, by capillary action. That makes for a very slippery gun, which is hard to hold, and very dangerous. Those of us who use proper and decent firearm lubricants don't have that problem.

<sarcasm off> Just kidding. I have no idea what, besides water, would make a plastic frame shiny, without making it slippery. Perhaps folks wipe them down with a wet rag immediately prior to taking pictures. Hmmmm?

Which firearm lubricants do not wick into the polymer frame?

Let's see if that worked.

On top is a 2005 G37, bottom is a 1989 G17. Bottom G17 has a few hundred thousand through it and at the time the pic was taken the G37 had a tad over 10,000. Neither is "oiled" or "lubed" only cleaned with CLP and wiped dry, what little is left is plenty of lube. The G17 has been worn smooth from rubbing in the hand from recoil.
