    Speaking with a friend or two this last weekend lubrication came up. Remember the 5 points of oiling a Glock, the four rails and the connector. Too much oil causes big time problems with a Glock. Run them dry, they aren't 1911s! ;f

    But if you want to shoot two shot bursts, put a little oil in the wrong places and hang on... :cool:

    "Too much oil causes big time problems with a Glock. Run them dry,..."

    Running the connector trigger bar interface "dry" leads to ruined scored parts only dealt with by replacement. Have even seen guns with a groove worn in the cam surface the tip of the conn. rides across on the slide. They may need less lube but they do need it in the Right places.........

    What are the "uninitiated" to make of a couple of seemingly opposite statements? Conn/T-Bar is hardly run "dry"....

    "Run them dry, they aren't 1911s!"

    Dry relates to you don't have to oil the slide, barrel, firing pin or channel. Polymer doesn't benefit from being lubed, yes I saw it. Compared to a 1911 you run a Glock "dry".

    Since no has questioned the connector lubing and didn't have a question I guess they understood the reference.

    I was asked to post this by a couple of folks at Glock, it wasn't meant to be a dissertation on lubes or "my" way of lubing. :)

    i store my glocks "1911 wet" when im not going to be shooting for a while. I do however clean and wipe them down before i carry or shoot them. too much oil just traps all the dirt and crud.

    Use a VERY small amount of TW25 on the connector where the trigger bar contacts it and VERY little Rem Oil or other good quailty gun oil on the frame rails and in the slide grooves. Also use a SMALL drop placed on the muzzle end of the barrel and spread it around the barrel and what's left on your finger and apply it to the inside of the top of side where the barrel hood sides into it.
    Glocks DO NOT LIKE ALOT OF OIL AND GREASE!!! They are a DRY firearm!!

    I am confused:brickwall: i saw a post where it gave you the point to lube (just like in the manual) but also had the breakdown of the whole firearm in color order where yellow was the lube point, very nice i though even made copies and got me some color sharpies:supergrin:
