    You're fine. Just lube it like the directions say in the owners manual. The copper lube is for long term storage I believe, so no worries. Also, welcome to GT!

    Your fine, as a lot of us clean the copper lube off. I find it funny though that many on here recommend that you leave the copper lube on the weapon until it wears off on its own, yet, in other threads they are against using grease as a lube saying that only a drop of oil should be used. The copper lube is a form of grease.

    Glock is a combat firearm designed to work--and keep working in the harshest environments. It's not like you took your Swiss watch apart and used lighter fluid to completely eliminate any type of lubricant.

    Glock works just fine with almost no lube, or even immersed in water. Relax.

    Heh. My 10 year old G35 still has some copper grease here and there I've purposely avoided removing.

    I let the copper grease work into a hot gun then I cleaned and lubed with Militec grease. Worked for me.
