I prefer this one



So I decided to just ask my Glocks which one they preferred. They rolled their sights at me and said "Like we care - just feed us more ammo"

@GRU7_Mech_ret: That's exactly the Lubricating Oil that I have. I just couldn't decide what CLP to use together with it.

@MtStream: Hahahaha! So true! I guess since it's my first firearm, I am pampering it too much. But then again, it's a special firearm to me since it was given as a gift.

Glad you found it funny! I did intend for it to just be funny in general. I hope it didn't come across as making fun or your efforts. I think you are doing everything right! You are asking the right questions and doing a great job taking the information and figuring out what your own path will be.

The official line from Glock is that as long as the products are meant for guns, they don’t care. And that’s actually true. Glocks don’t have rust issues and they need very little lubricant.

In general, I like lightweight oil for lubrication. I’m currently using Lucas Extreme Duty Gun Oil (available at a lot of automotive stores as well as online), I’ve only used it a few months but so far it doesn’t seem to be trapping dirt and I like the trigger feel with it. I withhold the right to change my mind but so far so good.

Hoppes will also work just fine. Glock US uses Shooters Choice, but they’ll tell you there’s nothing special about it vs any other lightweight oil that their guns need. Dirt is the real enemy so that’s why they recommend lightweight oil over grease.

Same goes for cleaning, anything meant for a gun will work. I just started using Hoppes 9 foaming barrel cleaner and am liking it.

You only need chemical on the bore of the gun. Everything else can be cleaned with a cloth or brush. If you brush it off frequently it’ll clean up quick. Never put oil or chemicals in the firing pin channel. Keep it dry and clean out with some long qtips a couple times a year.

Maintain your springs and the gun will last multiple lifetimes. I change mine every year on the guns I shoot regularly regardless of the number of rounds. Springs are cheap, yet they are the most important part for protecting the gun and being sure it functions reliably!!

Frog Lube is a great product...if used properly! Applying FL and rubbing it on then off is not the way. Applying and leaving a thick layer on the firearm is also wrong. Proper use included heating the metal by a low heat oven or in the sunshine, then applying FL. Letting it set on the metal for approx 20 minutes and then gently wiping it off. In cold areas many people have said FL gells....that is because they glob it on and leave it.

I understand that applying too much of that is bad. But, I've just seen too many negative posts, on the various gun forums, about Froglube. I'd never try it. I don't want to mess with heating things up. I don't need to mess with all that with Breakfree CLP. And, I've seen so many posts of people who clogged up their firing pin/striker with the stuff.

Glad to hear it works for you, but I'll stick with Breakfree.

My routine is to clean the weapon and then apply a modest amout of oil, (Rem/Hop/whatever) and blow out with 125 psi air. Leaves a fine sheen on everything, and, removes any excess that the first couple of rounds would be taking off anyway.


Per Glock and others, no oil in the striker liner.
Yup, the "air blast" does spread around a very light coating over all the working parts.

I scrub all my guns down with Hoppes #9, then us a Synthetic Safe blast cleaner, like Burchwood Casey brand, then do the light oiling with a finish of compressed air, and a wipe down with a cloth. Never had any issues.

I still also use CLP, used it all the time in the Marines, and we were rough on our guns, but kept them clean with mainly CLP. The stuff works.
