What kind of grease do you use on your Glocks....

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.

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 don't use any grease on any of my Glocks.

Oil...doesn't matter. It's a Glock.

But recently...Slip 2000 EWL

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.
