    Read your owners manual. As for what type to use, whatever floats your boat. Remoil, hoppes, clp etc. I use clp.

    You don't need much, just a few drops here and a few drops there, as per your manual.

    I use Wilson's Ultimate Oil in a syringe, and use the 7 drop method. I do mean drops, little drops and not splashes.

    1 drop to each of the frame rails--4 drops total
    1 drop to the connector/trigger bar junction
    2 drops to the barrel--distributed with my fingers

    Glocks need very little oil. I bought that little syringe about 5 years ago and oil my many Glocks after each use. I've only used about 1/3 of the oil so far.

    Factory method is the 5 drop method.

    1 drop to each slide rail, 2 drops total
    2 drops to the barrel
    1 drop to the connector

    Either way, once you place the slide back on the frame, rack it several times to distribute the oil evenly.

    awww, come on now, real men dont read manuals, or ask for directions :supergrin:

    Take the advice, direct from the horse's mouth, and read the Glock manual. It shows where to put each drop.

    Put Mobil 1 20W50 on the places listed in your owners manual and use as little as possible.

    i use a clp or hoppes 9 lubricating oil....after i clean the weapon, i use a q-tip and put a drop or two on it and wipe the rail grooves and other areas i think need oil, i do the barrel and feed ramp with a cloth and a drop or two of oil on it...for the frame itself, i use the q-tip and maybe one drop on the spot marked in the manual....

    very important to me is to not have anything looking wet and messy...so if anything looks wet, i use the dry end of the q-tip to wipe it dry, or a dry cloth....

    when i go to the range, sometimes i field strip the pistol and dry wipe it down, oil collects dirt...

    this has been my method for my 20 years with glocks...

    It's lube, for goodness sake!!!

    Put a little where metal rubs on metal and you'll be fine.

    Don't over think the situation.

    I use a dab of gun grease instead of oil.

    It would be interesting to see a comparison of two similar glocks with around 25,000 rounds through them. One oiled properly, or to some on here , over-oiled and one not oiled or just the "one drop" method.

    Then test them for accuracy. Probably no difference but interesting anyway.

    Your not going to hurt anything by adding more than a drop to the slide rails, etc. Just keep oil out of the firing pin channel. I even know some who oil the heck out of that area too and it doesnt seem to hurt it.

    If you are like most, and shoot a couple hundred rounds per range session, then clean it afterwards, you really CANT over-oil it.

    I run an auto repair shop and after cleaning my Glock, I just dip it in the vat of oil, give her a few shakes, shes good to go, nice and smooth. I am joking, slide rails 2 drops, 1 drop trigger connector, 2 drops dispersed around barrel. Wipe, load, reholster.

    EDIT- "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH"

    Gaston speaketh the truth in his manual. Just maketh sure the drops are small.

    Glock, Inc. provides a very clear, concise description of the procedure in the owners manual that they include with every pistol. If you do not have one or lost your copy, give 'em a call and I am certain that they will send you one free of charge. Nice folks that care about their customers and their product.
