Yep. Clean, lube and inspect it (do a function check, look for obvious problems the factory might have missed and look for blemishes that you'll wonder later "did it come like that or is it broke?").

Then go shoot the heck out of it! Enjoy,

Yes

Congratulations on a fine selection, the 229 is outstanding.

Yes, you should clean, lube and function check you new baby.

I don't know if the new ones are, but my last few Sigs were packed with a good amount of grease inside and out. You'll want to get that out and start anew.

Absolutely, especially all the thick gooey grease inside and outside the magazines.

Gunscrubber works well for getting through that crap.


Keep the slide rails greased.

You may want to rethink your cleaning regimen, especially the slide.
