Glock 'Factory' Lube

Discussion in 'General Glocking' started by chrisbroz, Feb 5, 2013.

  1. Does anyone know where I can get the Glock lube that comes as part of the new pistol or is there a lube similar to it that's available commercially???

    I've heard that it is Lock Tite copper anti seize. I have never bought it though.

    Glock is the only gun that has required anti-seize, to function properly. As far as I know.

    Hmmm??

    I remove it before I shoot it the first time and never reapply it. I probably would never do so unless I'm retiring the gun for 25 years.

    How exactly did you come up with this information? Glocks do not require anti-seize compound to function properly.

    Used by Glock in shipping and storage only, not a lube.
    Glock manuals say to use a good firearms oil and use very little at that. :supergrin:

    Complete misinformation. I remove 100% of it before I put one round through it, and I never have considered putting more on it.

    The copper anti seize compound would be ideal for spark plugs that will be in your engine for 100,000 miles.
    Why Glock uses it on it's pistols is a mystery we'll never understand, like why women ride side saddle instead of men.

    If it was required you'd have to re-apply it eventually... I just let it wear off on its own and don't worry about it

    From one of the Glock Annuals:

    It's to make sure the pistol will still function, if it's in storage, for a lengthy period of time.

    I have just left it alone and let it clear out, with wear.

    Google "sidesaddle" and you can probably figure that one out:snoopy:.
     
  14. I do choose to use a bit of grease with oil on my CCW glock. After 2 weeks of carry it was bone dry with just using oil. A light smear of grease mixed with oil in all the same places keeps the parts lubed. Using that specific stuff that comes on the glock shouldnt be any different then a good grease. I use Weapon Shield products but anything of the sort will be fine.
     
  15. I LIKE the idea of copper anti-seize...it's an excuse to visit Grainger's - the OTHER "Pier One for the Straight Guy".

    CB in FL...that line isn't mine - kudos go to Jay Leno for that...

    I would not be looking for that as a regular lube.
    Get a "wet" lube, but use it sparingly as the manual says.

    Check the manual that came with your Glock. I just got a G19 Gen 4. On page 46 of my book under SLIDE, it says, "Note that the copper colored lubricant found on portions of the slide of brand new GLOCK pistols should not be removed, as it will help to provide long term lubrication of the slide." The guy who sold me mine, a glock armorer said it was a good idea to have just a bit on the slide rails. It's Loctite C5-A.

    Years ago I was an RO at a GSSF match. Chris Edwards and one of the new armorers were looking over a Gen 1 G17L I had and the armorer commented how original it was, right down to the copper lube inside the slide. I burst his bubble when I told him it was Permatex anti-seize compound. Chris knew that for a gun that old the copper lube wasn't original.

    Chris then said to the armorer that after so many rounds, (and I forget now how many,) you don't even have to put any lube where the connector contacts the slide.
