Come on guys 45 views and one response (thanks Rydd2) to the question. Why are we here if not to share knowledge about Glocks and guns in general. I thought this was a pretty simple ?. I do not care how often you clean your gun, I care if when you do clean your gun do you use a brass brush on your bore. If not why? If so why? I think this is a pretty simple question and want to hear any advice pro or con to a direct question. I thank all for your time and comments

the place that sold me my G23 told me to put a few drops of oil on the slide every 1K rounds or so.... he didn't mention anything about brushing the bore. Sorry I can't offer anything more than that, i'm still a new Glock owner myself! :)

KentR,
Thanks for your input. My G17 came with a manual. It gives instrutions on how to clean and maintain my Glock. Lube is needed on points other than the slide. Did your Glock come with a manual? If not google it and you will get all the info you need. I will be happy to help you with any info you need feel free to PM me anytime.

GRR,
I dont know whats wrong with it. I did a lot of research before I bought my G17 and some said don't use brass but no reason why, thats why I asked. What do you use?
Well, I generally use the nylon brushes that came with my Glocks. If I've waited a long time between cleanings, I have used brass and bronze brushes as well to get at hard deposits, especially on the barrel hood/feed ramp area. I find the nylon bore brush with a little Hoppes #9 to generally do all that's needed inside the barrel. That said, you're never going to hurt your barrel with brass or even bronze brushes. Steel = hard, brass/bronze = soft.

The only concern for not using a brass brush would be finish (blueing not the tennifer). Since it is inside the barrel I don't think that would be a issue for you unless you are real anal then you shouldn't be shooting it anyway because the finish will be messed up from that. As far as wear on the polygonal rifling or whatever someone is saying is a issue. It isn't. The tennifer finish used on the Glocks is molecularly (spelling) bonded to the metal protecting it.

They are going to switch to a new protective finish for production here in the States but if you glock is older than say a month old you still have the tennifer. Long story short don't worry about it. The brass brush will be fine.

Thanks sfguard,
I just posted the ? due to what I had heard from others. I agree with you due to 50 years of brass brushing the bore of 50 or 60 diffrent firearms without damage. Thanks for your input and want to share alot more from you and dprice

Cool dude, I just wanted some input from my bros on this forum. I was raised and trained in the use of firearms by my dad since I was 6yrs old. The army reinforced what dad taught me so I guess Im set in my ways. Thanks for the post Keith and always give your opinion and share with the rest of us. Old dogs can learn new tricks
