What brand of grease do you use? I saw on Glockmeister you can buy the same copper grease they use at the factory. What would you reccomend? Thanks.

Are you asking what kind of grease we use on our glocks?

There was a similar thread concerning lubrication that was in discussion last week. So, you might want to take a look at that one also.

FWIW, the Glock owners manual doesn't call for ANY type of grease. It does call for just a small amount of "quality gun oil", and it specifies how and where to use the gun oil.

The manual also says, "Note that the copper colored lubricant found on portions of the slide of the brand new GLOCK pistols should not be removed, as it will help to provide long-term lubrication of the slide"

So, it doesn't say to use more grease, but it does say to leave the copper stuff there!!

My manual does say it is for "Glock Safe Action Pistols, All Models", and "Lubricating the Field Stripped Pistol" is on page 46 of the manual (REV.03/11).

Yea, I dont see any reference to grease in my glock manual either, and I did check again. I have lost count though how many times I have looked in the manual for grease and it still isn't there.

I use Tetra on the barrel lug, barrel hood, and slide rails. Never had a problem with it and it's reassuring to see the sheen of the grease after storing a firearm for months. All other points get Hoppes gun oil or some other quality oil.

I wouldn't be surprised if a grease type lube is used from the factory because it can sit forever without drying out. Oils will generally dry out and "run" when sitting.

That said I used hoppes #9 on all my guns besides my Garand that I use Mobil 1 on. My glock 32 has virtually no wear after 3200 rounds (yes I document it lol) of a mixture of .357 sig and .40 s&w. the main reason I use oil is because its easier to clean off. I don't like the idea of gun powder residue mixing in with the grease.

I don't think grease will hurt anything though.

Different era manuals say different things. If you talk to some of the Glock Techs, they will tell you grease in certain places. Oil in others.

Lubri-Matic High Speed Trailer Wheel Bearing and Marine Corrosion Control Grease (I buy the big tubes for my boats and always have it on hand.)
*connector/trigger bar, connector/slide rub area
*cruciform/striker tang
*striker block button/trigger bar angle
*on the Gen4s, on the little dimple on the trigger bar angle

Red Line 20W50 oil
*any where else oil is needed. A thin film stays put.

This being after cleaning with Otis M16 Cleaner Oil first.

The Lubri-Matic grease and Red Line oil don't cost 8$ for a lousy little ounce. If you read the specs on those products, they are better for the intended purpose than the stuff in gun oil bottles most of which "clean" at the same time they try to "lube" and don't lube well.

Militec-1 lubricant (no need for grease on a glock) is fine where there is zero chance of corrosion. Unlike most gun lubricants, it offers zero rust protection.

I use Slip 2K EWL and Lubriplate #105 engine assembly lube. I think it's a NLGI #1 or 0 grease. It's pretty thin and it does great on all firearms where you might want to use a grease...

Glocks are not very lubricant sensitive. As long as there's a little something there, you're fine.

Paul53
01-22-2013, 23:35
Use CLP. Had bad luck with Miltec, Hoppes, and Remoil.

Will be trying Weaposhield next, got a small amount through the mail (the container was punctured through and through by the Post Office. Still got a few drops to use, was very impressed).

The copper colored stuff on new glocks is a copper based industrial anti-seize compound.

Breakfree CLP. I like it as it will flush out crud and not cake up. And as the "P" in CLP indicates if will also protect.

I don't carry or even go into extreme climates so a general quality lube is ok for me. If I did go into extreme climates I would chose a lube that addressed the specific problems encountered in that particular harsh climate.

SuperLube made by Permatex. Awesome good. Looks like Vasaline and is non toxic. Basically it's a synthetic high temp disc brake bearing grease that has a bit of Teflon in it. It doesn't wash out, and it doesn't gum up. And i tiny bit goes a long way. Also can be used to improve electrical contacts like the batteries, etc., in your flashlights. Love it.

I also heard from a winning comp shooter that that Frog Lube stuff is the best he's ever used. Have to get me some.

I've also got some lubes that are designed for use on spacecraft in space...super expensive stuff... and the Super Lube works better on guns and a lot of other things as well. I think i bought it about 15 years ago for about $8 and i still have half a jar of it... even after doing a few wheel bearing jobs with it. I'd also like to do a shout out for "Eezox"... love that stuff!

I have used synthetic motor oil and bearing grease for over 10 years.

I shoot at least 1,000-2,000 rounds every single month and have shot all kinds of high round count training courses.

I have NEVER had one issue and have not seen any increase in wear compared to when I used "gun" oils and greases.

Waste your money if you want to, but you aren't gaining anything .

You could take Mobil 1 synthetic, put it in a bottle, call it a whiz bang "gun" oil and plenty of people would tell you how superior this "gun" oil is compared to motor oil.

Okay so here is my question. I have been using Beretta gun oil on everything (hand guns and shot guns). I have CLP break free that others talk about but it is in an aerosol can. I used that for cleaning. In your opinion, do you think the CLP is better than the Beretta oil? Also, since the CLP is aerosol how would it get used? Spray on a swab and apply that way?

They sell CLP in bottles too..Got mine at Cabelas..Bass Pro has it too..One bottle will last you for years depending on how many guns you have..This is also great for stubborn dead bolt locks and car door locks..I use it on everything that needs some lube..
