Lubrication Oil

I will be receiving a new to me Glock 17 and would like to know which lube oil most here use.

On my 1911 Kimber I have always used Shooters Choice FP-10.

Overall care is where it's at. There are a whole list of lubricants that would do just fine.

I mostly use Hoppes #9 for cleaning and CLP for lube, but I have an assortment of others I've acquired and may use.

It's sorta like asking, 'what's the best oil for my car'?

A simply 'oily cloth' for wipe downs is handy too.

HOS and a little CLP and moly lube in select places.

I use Froglube, CLP, Ballistol and white lithium grease. They all work pretty well and think any modern lubricant will work sufficiently. Lubricants are like holsters......they all work.

Ok...got it. So there is no special lube for glocks. I will just continue to clean with Hoppes and CLP and lube with FP-10.

Disassembly to clean and lube actually looks simpler than a 1911 or am I mistaken?

Thanx everyone.

I've been liking Hornady One Shot TAP lately. There's a great test on it floating around here somewhere. Amazon has it for $7.99 a can shipped if you go over $35.

The fellow that founded/created FP-10 left the company several years ago due to a hostile takeover of sorts. He's created an "upgraded" lubricant called Weapon Shield. The new oil is very good and you can deal directly with the founder, George.

Yes, a Glock comes apart for cleaning easier than a 1911.

Glocks don't need lubrication.

Yeah...and I really like the part where I have to pull the trigger first!

Yeah, because no one clears a 1911 before stripping it down

Almost forgot I use seafoam deep creep or regular seafoam to clean. Wipe off as much as I can (air compressor blast as well) and what little oil that's left over is all it needs for lubricarion.

I use a drop of M-Pro-7 on the connector and TW-25 grease everywhere else. I tend to over-lube but, I also clean mine after every range session.

I've got some Weapon Shield too and agree it's good stuff as well.

That's fine for the range, but is horrible when you cut the grass on a dry day, bail hay, etc. I wear mine everyday, if I have a hole to dig I am wearing it. Feral dogs, feral humans can be a problem in the boonies. I hate woodchucks and raccoons too, destructive little varmints they are.

Whatever you buy for lube, you'll have it for a long time because it only take a couple of drops to lube all the recommended points that need lube.
I have some Casey's synthetic gun oil. A little goes a long way and the Casey's seems to stay put for a long time.

I agree and in a case like that, I would carry mine pretty dry.
