"Gold" Grease In A New Glock

Discussion in 'General Glocking' started by -, Dec 4, 2003.

    I have owned several dozen handguns in my lifetime including a couple of Glocks. I have always cleaned and lubed every gun I have ever bought before taking them to the range.
    Today (12-04-03) I picked up a brand new Glock 33, the shop owner told me I should take it to the in-door range behind his shop and "break her in". I was amazed, I told him I was going home to clean and lube the gun first. He remarked that you really don't need to clean and lube a new Glock until all the "Gold" grease was gone. Now I know this guy is a bit of a "flyer" and I really don't pay much attention to his unsolicited advise. What do you folks have to say, should I clean all the "gold" grease out and re-lube or run her like she is?

    You should have paid attention to the "Flyer" because he was exactly correct.

    By the way, can you tell me where the shop is, so I can know where there is actually a gun shop that doesn't disrespect Glocks?

    It's regular old anti-seize compound. The "manual" says to leave it on but in my humblest of opinions it doesn't matter much. I used synthetic oil since day 1 and haven't had the slightest issue. Since it sounds like this is your first Glock in awhile, don't forget that Glocks don't require much oil. Check the manual for the important friction points that require oil and don't overdo it.--JJ

    You would not have harmed anything by shooting it on the spot. I take it out myself as I have better lubes that I use but it will work fine.

    The anti seize paste is ment to be placed behind break pads,i think Gaston must have owned an auto parts store at one time and just had an overstock laying around.
    Use real lube.

    Glock puts it in the guns so that if it sits for 10 years you can still open the box and go shoot it. Remember this was origionally a military contract pistol.

    If you check with "top glock", you will find the stuff for sale. It is a copper based lube that glock recommends for use on their pistol. It is not the same as brake pad "anti sieze" compound. It's main and most important characteristic is that it stays put. However, I too wiped the stuff off and lubed it up myself. It wasn't until I talked to the guy at Top Glock that I thought to ask about that stuff. Oh well!!!!

    I'll be happy to explain to any shop owner that you always clean the factory preservative grease out of any new firearm before firing it. If for no other reason but to cut down on gobs of firing-residue muck that has to be swept out after the first firing.

    "Your Glock pistol should be field stripped, cleaned and lubricated as follows: when brand new, before the first time it is fired" Page 33 in the Glock owners manual.

    The grease is a long lasting lube for guns that may sit in a military armory or distributors/gun stores shelves. It makes a mess and goes everywhere, I clean that crap out and and lube. The bbl is dirty on a new gun as well.

    Also, a Glock needs no break in.
