What kind of lube do yall use on your Glocks? The copper looking stuff that is on them from the factory looks like some kind of anti-seize to me. I would think something like that would be better than an oil type lube.

yeah i was wondering what that copper stuff was as well.

i personally just use clp when i clean then oil them.

The SPEC308 copper grease can be purchased, but Glock really puts that on there for long-term storage purposes and recommends oil for regular maintenance.

I've used CLP, Hoppe's oil, Valvoline Synthetic, and RIG grease. All worked about the same, didn't care for the grease on it, use CLP now.

That to keep it for a year or two.

Go CLP at home.
Link Posted: 7/16/2008 6:43:31 AM EDT
Sounds good, CLP it is. I have always used that stuff anyways thanks to the Army.

Here's one guy I trust about Glock maintenance...

Here's a cleaning video:

Here's a lubrication video:

He uses grease and he sees alot of action with his pistols, as he's an instructor and has to end up lending out guns when students' weapons fail.

I use Breakfree CLP

I use the same grease I use for my ARs.

CLP, FP10, motor oil, dog turds.

Seriously, your Glock wont care.

+1 , your Glock really won't care.

In fact , they run better on the dry side from what my experiences have shown. Just lube the slide/frame contact areas and do the rest when it really needs it. And don't fret about the lube - just a little slippery stuff is fine.

Grease on the frame rails, barrel exterior.

Rem oil on everything else.

CLP stands for Clean, Lubricate and Protect.

I have been using Weapon Shield CLP on my Glocks and all my other firearms. The stuff works great!

I forgot about this stuff. We had it issued to us in Iraq mainly for use in our M2 50. Anyone ever used it? We never had 1 malfunction from the M2 using this stuff. it seemed to work good. I am still just going to use a couple drops of CLP in my Glocks, I just thought I would bring this up.

the whole reason i bought a glock is so i did not have to worry about any "special" needs...

I bet you could use vegetable oil or crisco and it would still funcion properly...
Link Posted: 7/17/2008 7:27:18 AM EDT
Does anyone here use the Dry Lubes? I have thought about using them a lot, but never have.
Link Posted: 7/17/2008 8:58:35 AM EDT
I make my own
Link Posted: 7/17/2008 11:54:41 AM EDT
Been using Mobil 1 20w50 for several years on all of my Glock's (17s and 19s) without issue.

I suppose that just about any automotive or gun lubricant will do fine.

Use what you like.

That is my main reason for having Glocks...the constant reliability. I agree totally with you. These things are solid!!!!
Link Posted: 7/17/2008 1:31:35 PM EDT
+1 on Militec-1...it's the shiznit!

Anything will work really...in fact, I haven't lubed my 19 the last six times I've used it in classes (300-1000 rounds per), and it runs like a champ.

Our factory reps told us to shoot the guns and not to clean off the copper/beryllium anti-seize...

I also use Break Free CLP. Glad to know some of you experts agree.

+1 for the CLP. Works great.

I've been a CLP fan for many years.

As BigDanInTX mentioned above, I've also switched to wheel bearing grease.

I can't comment long term, but for now I see no appreciable wear, the grease stays where I put it, the gun stays lubed longer, and cleaning is MUCH easier.

Edited bacause I wandered into rifle lubing...
Link Posted: 7/20/2008 12:01:11 PM EDT
I use Superlube grease. The stuff stays put. You can probably find a tube at the local hardware store.

82lowe36id,

This is only the 2nd time I told this story - mostly because I doubt anyone will believe it.

Bought my first Glock almost 2 months ago, and drove around trying to find the Yeager Approved High Temp Bearing Grease. No luck.

Found another auto parts, and called them - it was a NAPA store.

Me: Got any bearing grease?

Him: Whaddya gonna use it for?

Me: (thinking WTF) For a gun.

Him: What kind of gun?

Me: Glock.

Him: (I swear this is how it went down) Every so often, a guy comes in here and buys every tube we have of PermaTex Anti Seize lube. Says he is a Glock instructor, and is in town teaching a class.

I went over there and bought a tube. It looks, feels and smells EXACTLY like the stuff that Glock uses.

Tetra Grease for me, but I doubt it really matters. I have used CLP in the past also.
Link Posted: 7/23/2008 2:54:16 AM EDT
CLP. And not a lot of it:
