    Whats youre Idea of just right, lubricating youre pistol, for function.

    I have been tending to keep my PT111M/P a little on the dry side, as less dirt/debris collects inside during carry..

    what are youre practices?

    what are important practices in youre opinion? (methods, specific parts to be oil'd)

    what are the best lubricants?

    Ive been liking RemOil for the slide rails. I use WD40 to clean the slide (Stainless).

    looking to improve, learn, and hopefully extend the life of my pistol.
    thanks for any input!

    Shoot:D (the fun part)

    I'll disassemble the pistol and let the barrel soak in #9 either overight or a couple of hours depending on how many rounds went through.

    As for the rest of the pistol, I'll use a nylon brush/patch dipped in #9 to get all the powder. Wipe clean with a dry patch.

    For the barrel after is done soaking I send through a soaked patch, then a brush a couple of times, then another soaked patch, and then a dry patch. I'll repeat this in some manner or another until its clean to my standards. If I think it needs it I'll use some copper solvent such as sweets, but dont let that soak over night.

    After everything is clean and dry I break out the q-tips and the FP-10 and apply it to the slides, the top of the barrel where it contacts the bushing, and a really light coating where any other moving parts are.

    After I'll take out some CorrosionX, which is supposedly the best rust preventative out there short of cosmoline/grease and wipe down the exterior of the gun.

    Nothing magic, basically the procedure the I learned from my dad with a couple of add ons. Worked great for him (30 yr LEO) and fine for me so far.

    I just put a thin strip of W-C Ultima Lube and put a drop of Rem-Oil on the tip of my finger and smear it in. It doesn't run all over the place and keeps it lubed to the point that I've never had a malfunction.

    I use a light coat of Militec TW-25B on the rails, on the outside of the barrel where the slide contacts it, on the underlugs, on the underside of the firing pin channel (the part that always gets brass colored from rubbing the rounds in the mag) and on the trigger linkage parts.

    Since i am a glock guy,
    the only lubricatoin i find useful, is about two cans of MGD into the shooter (helps the joints)

    all else is good to go
