Gen 2 G17 first cleaning

I took my new to me gen 2 G17 to the range yesterday, loved it, it ran 100% for 100 rounds (50 Remington, 50 Tula). So I cleaned it this evening. I detail stripped the slide and WOW this thing was gummed up. It also had like a gold metal flake if the plunger hole and the striker channel, WTF is that? The gun was super wet when I got it, looked like someone dumped a quart of oil in it. I stripped the frame before the range trip,and it has a Ghost connector, and by the feel of the trigger, I thought it had a spring kit, but after cleaning, I don't think so (it'll probably get one). /unorganized rant

The 'gold flake' is simply brass particles that were supposed to fall out of the debris hole.

When there's oil inside the slide (like in the firing pin channel and firing pin safety), said debris sticks to the oil instead of falling out.

Thanks Butch, my gun looked just like your pics. I cleaned everything I could reach with a Q-tip dipped in Hoppe's #9 then flushed out both channels with CLP, then back to a Q-tip dipped in Hoppe's #9.

Never saw a Glock that dirty. Looks like someone used axle grease to lube it up.

Wow - that one looks like it could use a good cleanig and a touch less lubrication.
