Special lube

In a video I watched about Glock lubrication, there was an area of the slide that had some copper color lube on the inside end of the slide that the instructor said not to remove but leave on as long as possible. I cleaned mine off not knowing any better. Does this need to be there, and if so can I get some somewhere to redo it? Rich

That is anti seize from the factory. Oil the rails and shoot away

Send it to me with as many rounds as possible. I will fix your mistake by re-applying the Copper anti-seize and performing a function check with the ammo you send. The more ammo you send the better. No need to pay me, a thank you will be enough.

The best thing to do is remove the thick anti seize and apply a good lubricant.

Worry not. Although Glock recommends you leave the copper lube in place. The philosophy espoused in the armorer's course is that no real effort is required to try and preserve it. No you don't have to replace it, just lube as suggested and fire away.

As suggested both the manual that comes with the gun and the Armorer's Manual both indicate to leave the copper anti-seize in place, however enough people have removed it and have put thousands of rounds through a gun to suggest removing it is probably not going to cause an early failure.

Glocks like to run dry. Just shoot it. I have a 23 with over 100k through it. I never lube it. I just clean it once or twice a year.

Thanks and I thought so!

Thanks, I like to keep things clean, especially my "shootin' irons"! As a matter of fact I cleaned the barrel of my Glock 22 after 50 rds. but could not get any dirt to come out- love that polygonal rifling!

Dito. They will run wet but all that does is pick up dirt and grit. Don't over think lubrication on a glock. A bit of any good oil on the recommended spots and you are good to go.
