When a person buys a new Glock, what is that copper colored stuff in the groves of the slide where the slide rails go ? Is it grease or anti-seize ? :confused:

If i recall correctly it is the factory lube. I've heard about, and seen it on my new Glocks, but I've never heard of the "anti-seize" properties.

Does that mean that it will keep the minions of government out of my gunsafe? :D

You may also want to check the Glock Talk webforum or post the question in one of the handgun forums here.

It is a specially formulated lubricant used by Glock on their pistols. It sticks around a lot longer than you might think and is very valuable in keeping the pistol running smoothly for life.

I thought these things ran when filled with sand under water with an elephant sitting on top without being cleaned for a decade while being stored in a tackle box in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean... :D

yes, it is an antiseize compound and is designed to maintain parts of the gun that should not be lubed heavily due to particulate accumulation. if you are a new glock owner, do not clean this compound out before firing the weapon. its good stuff!

Its a specially formulated compound made from finely ground Gnomes. It will keep your gun running forever :) In all seriousness, its just the factory stuff they put on there because they dont know how long it will be before the pistol is sold and used.

It is common automotive anti-seize. It's only purpose is to ensure long lasting initial lubrication and protection.

Glock doesn't know how long their pistols will be stored in a mud hut in some African/South American jungle before they are issued out to kill political dissidents or whatever.

It does not matter if you leave it on or not, and Glock's recommended lube is BreakFree CLP.
