I got very interested in pistol shooting after getting my LTC last year. Since that time I've started shooting regularly and have purchased several Glock's. I clean the Glock's often and apply minimal grease and oil. The Glock's seem to run fine with very minimal lubrication and show little wear. Recently I purchased a new Sig P238. Prior to my first trip to the range, I cleaned and lubricated it per Sig's recommendations with the provided grease. After firing the first 50-100 rds. it seemed extremely dry. I felt that it really needed more lubrication so I stopped firing it. I had a few failures and several failures of the slide locking back on the last rd. the first time I fired it. Prior to firing it again I cleaned and lubricated according to Sig's recommendations. Sig stresses numerous times in the Owner's Manual to avoid over lubrication. On the next trip to the range it again seemed very dry after 100 rds. or so. And I had one failure of the slide to lock back on the last rd. So after about 200-250 rds. I've noticed slight wear marks on the front and rear of the frame rails, which may be very normal. I've seen examples of what looked like extreme amounts of grease on the slide in some cases. So I would appreciate comments about lubrication from experienced 1911 type pistol owners. Thanks, and by the way, the P238 shoots great and is fun to shoot.
