Anti-seize is a lousy lube and certainly provides lousy lubrication until it is worked into the surface.
Of course I asked him that. He stated 2 or 3 times to make sure the pistol was lubricated per the manual and things would be fine.

The "tech" informed you correctly. It won't hurt to leave it on. But it's normally removed and replaced with a few drops of lube.i love the "burnishing" part.

Mobil 1 20W50 is one of the best pistol lubes available and beats the hell out of anti seize as a gun lubricant. I have used dozens and dozens of cans of anti seize doing mechanical work and worked on dozens and dozens of Glocks but I have never used anti seize on a firearm.

You know I have wondered about using Mobil 1 before. How would Mobil 1 5W-20 do?

No anti seize is needed for a glock, except, as previously noted, for extended shelf storage. motor oil works fine if nothing else is available. Any old gun oil, like rem oil, is better.

Any quality synthetic motor oil will work and they have plenty additives to properly lubricate and reduce wear.

I would think a quart of synthetic motor oil would be much more cost effective than gun oil. I would also believe if it can protect a reciprocating engine, then it could handle a Glock with no problem. I would also think transmission fluid(ATF) would work very well too.

Glock manual says five drops of gun oil:
One drop at trigger bar/connector contact.
One drop in each of two slide rails.
One drop on top underside of slide at barrel contact.
One drop on outer surface of barrel, hood and lug.
Burma Shave confirms, "Five drops'll do ya."

In my experience the only people who are concerned about reapplying the factory anti-seize are the people trying to sell their used Glock as new-in-box.

Yes, 3 parts Mobil 1 20W50 and 1 part Dextron ATF is a good combination.

Thank you, we have been wondering, who took the Moly powder and Moly anti-seize, from Sikorsky. That stuff's expensive.

Ordinary motor oil (from crude oil) has additives, for anti foam and other stuff. How much stuff has to be added, to call it synthetic, please?

Very interesting reading. One thing I have noticed is that Glock owners are very passionate about their weapon down to what type of lube to use. Did not see anyone boasting about or using Frog Lube. LOL!

A Glock is the simplest combat pistol made. It can be fired dripping wet or bone dry. But you guys over think lubrication every possible way. Cracks me up almost as much as the guys who send their Glock back to be refinished after a couple hundred rounds because it shows ANY wear.

Yeah, and I suppose the three different extractors - AND THREE DIFFERENT EXTRACTOR DESIGNS - the factory in Smyrna sent me are, also, figments of my imagination? When are you going to wake up, 'smell the coffee', and stop denying the ever growing body of evidence?

GLOCK'S BTF PROBLEMS ARE REAL!

This thread is on it's 40th life......

I've owned 13 GLOCK pistols. It doesn't matter one bit whether you leave it on there, or wipe it off and re-lube it. Trying to find more to use as an everyday lube is silly.

It doesn't matter what good quality lube you use. Or how you clean your GLOCK pistol.

Folks here obsess too much over this stuff.
