Hey Guys,

I was taking the slide off my G26, Which I just recently purchased. I noticed that there is Copper Coat or something similar on the slide rail. Are you supposed to put a thin coat back on slide rail after cleaning.

Thanks

That is "... a high-temperature, factory-applied lubricant. It should be allowed to remain until it naturally wears away to assure long-term lubrication of this area". (that's a direct quote from the Armorer's Manual).

Once it's worn away you can use a regular light oil on the slide rails, according to the instructions in your owner's manual. There's no need to replace the copper-colored stuff.

Yep - just put a "small" amount of your favorite gun grease on the sweet spot and you're good to go.

Not sure sewing machine oil is listed in the acceptable lubricants for Glock pistols. I think it says something like " any lubricant approved for firearms".
Are we gonna' sew or shoot! LOL.

I usually leave the copper colored grease on the first time I shoot a new Glock. The only thing I do the first time I shoot a new Glock is add some light grease, TW25B, to the connector area and then shoot away.

When I clean a Glock after its first shoot, I remove all the factory lube and replace it with new lube. I do that every time after I shoot.

What I heard was because its thin thats why it won't gum up like gun oil will do in below zero temperatues.

Now, I've never shot my Glocks in these kind of temperatures but my shotguns will freze up from time to time due to gumming up due to the gun oil and the cold. I have neve used that dry gun lube, I wonder how that would do in the cold?

I use Breakfree CLP in my Glocks and all of my guns and have for more years than I can remember, it cleans and lubricates. Never had any problems.

agreed. i just started using it to clean my barrels and lube the rails, and it's pretty good stuff. cleans the barrel at least as good as hoppes9, and doesn't smell like the reactor core at chernobyl lol (also lubes at the same time so i can now skip that extra step. it's great :)
