    Well I finaly gave in and bought my first Glock. I bought a 17 and have a question before I go shoot it. Should I clean off that bronze stuff off?

    There's NO need to clean it off. Clean the barrel and go shooting. The anti-seize will wear off on its own.

    No. Besides it's not that easy to clean off. Just give your gun a light cleaning and lube. Then shoot the heck out of it. I recently bought another G17 and so far I've shot about 800 rounds through it with only one cleaning.

    Of course once the gun goes on duty I'll usually clean it everytime I shoot it. These are not intense break down the entire gun detailed cleanings. Just a fieldstrip cleaning.

    Congrats on your new purchase and good shooting!:cool:

    That Bronz looking stuff is an antiseze lubricant.
    It is hard to clean off any how.
    It will ware off eventualy, and you won't miss it.
    Just give it a good check, a "little" lube, and lots of shooting
    Have Fun with your new Glock, and those to come.
