    May be a dumb question, but I don't care. My slide is really squeaky when racked. Any reason why? I have handled several glocks and all of them sound smooth. Not enough lube? It came that way right out of the box. And I know nothings wrong with it,... just curious. Only had it a few months

    It is my experience that they all do it.

    step 1) don hearing protection

    step 2) shoot, shoot, shoot

    step 3) worry less, shoot more, a "squeaky" slide cannot be heard over the sound of gun fire.

    Yes I know all that. Like I said, just more of a curiosity thing.

    +1, that squeak will go away the more you fire it.

    Thats usually the case when brand new. Shoot the gun and clean it and the sound should be gone. :wavey:

    I think it has to so with the recoil spring, guide rod.. mine did that until i replaced it with a steel one. If you don't want to replace it, maybe putting a few drops of oil on the guide rod might quiet it sown a little..i know exactly what squeak you are talking about, and it use to drive me nuts.

    Disassemble, load the recoil spring and lube the rod lightly with a good gun grease, should cure the problem.

    G32- "squeeked"
    G26- did not
    G27- did not
    2 G19s- did not
    G23- did not
    2 G33s- 1 did 1 did not
    2 G30s- did not

    I bought a NIB G17L about a year and half ago and the damn thing squeeked so much it made me cringe. Then, I put ONE drop of CLP on the guide rod and guess what?

    That's right! No more squeek! One drop, just one drop. Good luck:cool:

    Like some shown by Maine...no squeak heard on any of mine so far...although they didn't get much time to squeak before putting a couple hundred rounds through them when new and cleaning afterward if that helps.

    Guess I'll have to carry my next new one around for a couple of days before I shoot it to see is she's a squeaker!!

    I had squeak on my recently purchased g17. I did all the recommended oiling and put a little on the guide rod and spring as well and now it's as quiet as a knife through butter... or something thats really quiet.

    put some clp aerosol version on the guide rod and you'll never hear the squeek again...
