Where do I need to lubricate my HK USP 45 Compact? The manual isn't quite as specific as say a Glock manual (i.e. 1 drop here, 1 drop here, etc.).
Per the manual for Fullsize USPs (Page 40).
LIGHT LUBE--A finger run across the surface yields little or no lube.
Lightly lube the following areas:
-Bore, chamber, and exterior of barrel
-All metal parts
-All internal parts in slide and frame
-recoil/buffer spring assembly
-Barrel locking block
-Slide rails and grooves
-All operating controls
-detent plate and detentslide
-locking insert and guide part in frame
-.45 magazine body
I personally lube the barrel locking block a little heavier and more frequently than the manual suggests since I live in Arizona.
Hope this helps.
In order to lube per the manual, I would have to detail strip the pistol every time. I put a drop on the barrel, locking block, inside top of the slide, and rail grooves, but I'm wondering about the internals.
I just dip the whole thing in a vat of CLP. <g>
I thought about doing that, but I was concerned about concealing the unsightly wet spot on my right hip.
Some say that they
really only mean for you
1.disassemble the magazine
2. immerse and scrub those
Why would anyone soak a polymer frame????
Just wipe off the parts
with a wet (with whatever you use) Q-Tip
and then wipe off the excess lube.
Leaving things soaking wet will
just leave you with a gritty
feeling action as unburned powder
begins to build up.
really want to go for it:
