    Ok broke her down and gave her a good cleaning and lube. Purchased the new hoppes complete cleaning kit which was a nice all in one package. She is already looking and feeling smooth and sexy again. Can't wait to take her out to the range hopefully tomorrow and see If she resumes her righteous ways!



    Ps if anyone has some specific cleaning and lubing tips then throw them my way. Not sure how thorough or correct my amateur cleaning session was.



    I gave it an initial wipe down with a dry silicon cloth. Then hit the barrel lug and slide with hoppes #9 solvent. Used cloth to wipe down and clean slide. Then used phosphorus brush to clean out barrel, then took small cloth patches and slotted end tip and cleaned out inside of barrel until patches came out clean. Then I dropped my oil onto the 6 spots pointed out in manual. Reassembled. Racked the slide a few times. And wiped her down with the cloth again. Let me know if any of this is wrong, appreciate everyone's help and advice attachment.jpg attachment.jpg

    Here is how Hickok45 cleans his functionally similar Glock.

    He uses Ballistol a CLP (Clean Lube Protect) product. I've used it, and it is an excellent product, though it does have a "unique" smell. I personally only use CLP's. I also like non-toxic versions and there are lots and lots of options available.

    Currently I use SLIP 2000, but along with Ballistol, I've also used BreakFree, and I've heard great things about WeaponShield, Gunzilla, FrogLube, and lots of others. They all work well.

    I'm kind of old school: Hoppe's #9, 3 in 1 oil and Sheath/Barricade. Don't remember when I started using Sheath, but my first bottle of #9 was in the Outers cleaning kit I bought in 1967.
