Just got my first Glock, a G17. I was looking at doing my normal new gun cleaning and was wondering if I should clean off all the weird pinkish, sparkly grease on the slide? I usually clean every part of a new gun but the grease looks like it could be a good thing. Thanks.

I usually remove it. Then I lubricate it according to the manual. Some will say the grease is a good thing and to leave it on. I don't think it matters. Happy Shooting! Here's a video that may help. Glock Cleaning Basics - YouTube

That is copper grease that is added at the factory... Most seem to leave it as it is very good stuff. Glocks don't need cleaning anyway lol

Leave it on. Let it wear off normally.

If I recall correctly both the manual and the armorer's manual indicate to leave the copper anti-sieze in place.

Yes, let it wear into the metal - slicks it up! Welcome and cheers. Be warned - those Glocks are addicting - just purchased number six last week.

I check/clean the bore, function check it then shoot a 100 rounds or so before cleaning the pistol.
