So my new Glock 17 came lubricated with this funky copper colored looking lube. The manual said not to remove it. So I didn't.

What is that lubricant???
Is it better than regular gun oil???
Where do I buy more???

In my experience, my Glock 19 doesn't need any lube at all to work, but I put it in there just because. In the course of use, it will eventually get dirty enough that you'll have to clean off the grease. I just put a drop or two of Hoppes Elite gun oil on a tiny piece of cotton rag, then run that over the rails and in the slide rail grooves. Everything else gets a thin coat, then wiped off with a clean rag.

It's normal.

Is it better? I don't know.

Can you buy more if you want? Yes.

Look at your autoparts store. There's a copper based lube that you can use. Heard that it's the same thing and I've used it on G17's and a G30 with no ill affects. Can't remember the name of it tho. If I remember when I get home, I'll edit this post.

The lubricant in question goes by the trademark of "Never-Sieze". It comes in different versions, each having powdered metal mixed in a hydrocarbon carrier. Silver colored has aluminum particles, copper colored has copper powder, and there is a nickle powder version as well.

Almost any auto parts store carries this stuff, if you really want to use it on your Glock. Personally, any decent lube will do the trick just fine once the original stuff wears off (or more likely is burnished into the surface) on your pistol.

After 3000 rounds out of my G35, the copper lube's gone.

Whenever you oil up the connector tip, it pretty much replaces the copper lubing. That's where the majority of it lies when my G35 was still new.

Every autoparts store carries the stuff. It is an anti-seize compound for spark plugs. Works good on spark plugs, but I have never tried it for my guns.

It appears to be similar to Loctite C5-A which is 5.40 for a 1oz tube. Good to 1800 degrees F it says.
