No offense Sscott, but that setup seems so dangerous to me. I guess you're comfortably with it.

I have the big bottle but I use it with other guns.

I can send you a private pic with the disaster MPro7 caused in my Gen4 slide.

I'd like to see the picture. I only used it to clean the barrel, I didn't see a point in using it on the slide.

Here are the pictures (didn't want to disclose the cleaner at that moment):

Edit: the cleaner manufacturer and Glock couldn't reproduce the issue. But it is a fact that product ruined my finish. If put a drop on the slide, a stain remains in the surface.

try using penetrating oils like Kano Kroil http://www.kanolabs.com/

disclosure: I am not responsible for any damage on your Glock based on my recommendation

Did I read correctly that you left it on the slide for 30 minutes?

I saw something strange in the slide and I tried to clean it with the cause of the problem.

30 minutes are not supposed to destroy the finish. MPro7 support told me they leave guns submerged for hours.

Other products like Ballistol and Breakfree were ok.

Remember I am talking about the new Gen4 finish, not Gen3.

Wow, I'm really surprised. Like I said I have used MPro7 for years with no problems. I have also left it on the slide for at least 30 min if I'm cleaning multiple guns. I don't have a Gen4, but I do have a newer Gen3 with the gray teflon like finish.

I'm not all that bothered by the Siderlock trigger safety, had similar on rifles for years. Does require more discipline though.

I like it a lot.

I honestly can't see any issue of the weapon being "less" safe after adding it, maybe it is because I use it? I added it for a "what if" scenario and it makes me feel more secure for that purpose.

because in firearms safety. the #2 rule is:

"ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot"

with siderlock. when you chamber a round then activate the safety, you mingle with the trigger.

Now I'm paranoid about the M-pro 7. I'm probably going to make a thread about it and see if anyone else had these experiences, though I can't find anything else like it on Google.

Gotcha. Thanks!

I won't argue against that. With the distance of pull to fire, I am confident in the safety for me. I don't use the safety for carry, only in the home.
