    What are the recommendations for the lubing the Glock. Just regular gun oil, slip 2000 extreme weapons oil. I know it needs to be in very small amounts. I am sure someone has posted this question in the past. Thanks

    You will find as many opinions on this as there are gun lube products. As to how to lube, follow the manual. As to what to use, try WeaponShield and don't look back.

    I always use hexagonal boron nitrate mix in some rubbing alcohol.
    Its a great dry lube I use it in all my firearms

    A lot of people will chime in with their favorite lubes.

    I don't think you can go wrong with Breakfree CLP. It met some fairly difficult military requirements and as a general purpose lube, it works. If you don't want to put a lot of time and energy into evaluating different cleaning and lubrication products - CLP is a proven product.

    I used CLP on my firearms for 30 years and had no complaints.

    About a year ago though I became more interested in cleaners and lubes and I started doing research. I now use Ed's Red to clean. Mobil 1 synthetic to lube the spots that require oil, and a tiny amout of Lubriplate SFL 0 on the rails.

    I use Weaponshield CLP to clean and lubricate with Mobil 1 20W50 using a needle oiler.

    Whatever you can get your hands on. Any good brand of gun lube will work.

    The one product that I have found that works for every aspect of total gun care is Weapon Shield CLP. Bill

    Any gun oil applied sparingly to the proper locations will get the job done. I use whatever open bottles of oil I have on my bench at the time including Hoppes, Outers, Pro Shot, Breakfree CLP, etc.

    I am in the school of under oiling. Over oiling collects more particles and makes cleaning more difficult

    It's a Glock, shoot it

    I've seen some places sell the factory copper lube, is this a good thing to apply every once in a while, or is it just a waste of time and money?(although it isn't expensive)

    Applying anti seize on a Glock is not necessary, use a quality oil.

    It's a Glock. Spit on the rails!

    It not like it has tight tolerances. Don't waste money on expensive or gimmicky oil.

    I bet oiling a Glock with Crisco would shoot 1000's of rounds with no malfunctions. Seriously.

    I have been using Hoppe's for years, but I recently bought some breakfree CLP to try out, and I haven't noticed any difference.
