    After a recuest from a Glock talk friend Ill post these pics where the parts that should be lubricated are circled in red.
    * remember to lube with just a bit, wipe off any excess.

    I got this info from the Glock video by Bill Wilson in the Routine Maintenance & cleaning section, a pretty nice video to learn some basics.

    *glock shown is my G17

    I think I would be careful about lubinh the firing pin safety. There will be a chance some oil/lube could get into the firing pin channel and collect dirt and grit that may hinder the proper operation of the firing pin......just my opinion... good photos though.

    Frank M,

    Thats very true... and thats why you should only put a tiny little bit. Practically you sould just lube your gun wherever you see any wear, and the areas that I circled point out those areas where friction can be invloved while shooting your glock.


    Again Im just trusting a Glock Video By Bill Wilson on Field Stripping, Routine Maintenance, And Proper Lubrication... Im pretty sure He knows what he's talking about jejeje.

    Place ONE DROP of quality gun lubricant at each of the following points:

    1. On the inside top of the slide, one drop and distribute with your finger.
    2 & 3. One drop on each slide rail cut. Hold the slide vertical and let the oil run down the slide rail cuts.
    4. One drop on the barrel lug.
    5. One drop on the outside of the barrel and distribute with your finger.
    6. One drop on the angled portion of the connector.

    Do not overlubricate. Large amounts of oil will collect powder residue, which could interfere with proper functioning.

    WadeP is correct.

    No grease please.

    I do use Tetra Grease on interface #6 in WadeP's schematic, though.

    Seems that after the Flitz treatment the trigger pull is about 20% crisper if TG is used there rather than oil.

    Even Mobil 1...which is used for all other lubrication/anti-corrosive purposes in my pistols!

    That's a matter of personal preference.
    I've been using Militec-1" gungrease and CLP for years with no problems.
    I've also known of guys who use "Mobil-1" (which I don't advocte). However, they've done it for years with no problems.

    Regards,

    Why, may I ask, do you not advocate it?
    Personal preference or an actual reason?

    BTW I am an industrial chemical compounder by trade, in the petrochemical industry 10+ years. I actually know the difference between synthetic motor oil and different gun oils.

    I use Mobil 1 or a homemade gun oil w/a Mobil 1 base.
    Unless the application deems the use of a grease, greases,they are another story. I like tetra.

    Put Mobile 1 and any expensive gun oil on the GC and you would be suprised at the results!

    The picture that Wade posted always confuses me (which is really easy to do!) What exactly are arrows 2, 3 & 4 pointing to?? I believe I got all the other spots correct.

    As Greg Conn said...

    That's a matter of personal preference.

    I use SHOOTERS CHOICE -- All Weather -- HIGH TECH -- Grease, Ive had abs no problems with it...

    I like lubs that are designed specifically for gun use even though some are the same **** diff shapes and sizes...

    O well, as I said... personal preference

    Yep. Thanks Wade; nice compact JPG. ^c

    As to the impending/recurring lube war, I only know what works for me in 110° down to -25°, therefore...

    I've never used anything other than Tetra grease on any of my Glocks. I use it on all the points mentioned above. It doesn't attract any more contaminants than oils, if used correctly I think it attracts less. And I've never had a single issue.

    While I think "Mobil 1" has good lubricating qualities, I believe there are other products with better anti-corrosive qualities.
    "Mobil 1" is good within the closed confines of an automobile engine, but I believe there are other products that are better for firearms which are exposed to the elements.
    Here is a link to an interesting "Glock Talk" thread where a fellow GT'er performed a test with various products.

    Preach it!

    There's no need to fight about it. If they want to screw up their guns lubing the wrong points with the wrong lubricant that's their problem.;i
