Maintaining your Glock pistol

When a friend conducted a weapons inspection at his department recently, he was dismayed to find that most of his officers did a poor job of maintaining their duty firearms. The striker-fired guns (like the Glock pistols and Smith & Wesson M&P pistols) that are so popular with police officers were in especially bad shape and demonstrated a distressing number of failures to fire and eject as a result of poor maintenance practices.

To help make a dent in this problem, let’s discuss what you need to do in order to keep your Glock pistol running well.

While we’re singling out the Glock pistol in particular, because of its dominance in the law enforcement market, this information will also apply to similar, striker-fired pistols like the Smith & Wesson M&P series, the Springfield XD/XDM series and the Sig Sauer P320. With slight modifications, it will also apply to hammer-fired pistols of various designs.

getting started

Before we dive into the particulars, a few general rules apply:

Read your owner’s manual! Cops being cops, I know most of you have never cracked this open! Do yourself a favor and read the manual that came with your gun for the manufacturer’s recommendations on how to disassemble, clean and reassemble your pistol. There’s some good stuff in there, honest.

Follow the safety rules! It’s essential to follow your agency’s firearms safety rules every time you handle your firearm. Before you attempt to disassemble and clean your firearm, you must safely unload/clear it in accordance with the process described by the manufacturer or your agency, and ensure that the ammunition remains separate from the gun (ideally, in another location) until you’ve made the conscious decision to load it again.

Protective measures. Wear safety goggles to protect your eyes, and disposable gloves to keep lead and chemical residue off your skin. Ensure the area you’re working in has adequate ventilation. Clean up your work area when you’re finished, then wash your hands and face with cold water and soap (cold water is better than hot, to keep your skin’s pores from opening up and increasing your exposure), to avoid getting any chemicals or residue in your eyes, nose, or mouth.

how to clean your glock

A variety of cleaning products, tools and methods are available. Our goal here is to discuss a simple method, using common resources, so if you have a different technique or favor a different product, please continue with it ‒ we’re not trying to talk you out of it.

Starting with your protective equipment in place, and a field-stripped firearm, do the following:

  1. Run a solvent-soaked patch through the chamber and bore of your barrel several times, coating the feed ramp, chamber and interior of the barrel evenly. Set the barrel aside to soak.
  2. Wipe the interior of your slide with a dry patch or rag, to get the big stuff off. Wet a toothbrush with a small amount of solvent, and scrub the interior surfaces, paying close attention to the breech face and slide rails. As you’re scrubbing, try to hold the slide muzzle end down to avoid having the solvent run into the interior of the striker channel, which we want to keep dry. Set the slide aside to soak for a while, muzzle end down, so that any solvent that made its way into the striker channel can drain out.
  3. Clean the frame of your pistol with a dry patch or rag. Get the carbon, dirt and other fouling off the exterior of the frame, the interior of the magazine well and the accessible interior of the gun. Wipe down the rails, trigger bar, ejector and connector area as well (refer to your manual to identify these parts if you don’t know what they are).
  4. Now that you’ve got the big stuff off the frame, go back through with a toothbrush and a clean patch or rag to get the nooks and crannies clean. You may need to put a little solvent on the brush or patch to get some of the fouling off these parts ‒ if so, make sure you wipe the surfaces clean afterward and don’t leave a bunch of solvent behind. If necessary, use an air hose or a can of compressed air to blow the solvent out of the areas where it may be hiding. The goal here is to get everything clean and dry.
  5. Wipe down your recoil spring assembly with a dry patch or rag. It shouldn’t need much attention ‒ just try to get it clean and dry. A dry toothbrush might help, too.
  6. Wipe down the exterior of your magazines with a dry patch or rag to get the carbon fouling and dirt off. Pay close attention to getting the follower and feed lips clean – a dry brush might be helpful here. If you’re concerned that water, sand, dirt or other debris got inside the magazine, then you’ll want to disassemble the magazine and clean it, as we’ve previously discussed here. That’s a good thing to do periodically anyhow, but you don’t have to disassemble your magazines for cleaning every time. Once again, your goal is to get your magazines clean and dry. Don’t lubricate them or leave any solvent behind to attract more dirt. Clean and dry.
  7. Let’s return to the slide. Scrub it a little more with your brush, then wipe everything down to get the interior and exterior clean and dry. To get the rails clean, push a dry patch down into the rail with your toothbrush or a non-marring tool (like a plastic pick, wooden toothpick, or the paper shaft of a Q-Tip) and wipe clean from end to end – you’ll probably need several passes to do this. Make sure the breech face is clean and smooth, with no raised fouling on the surface (like rings of carbon or primer sealant). If necessary, use a brass brush or a non-marring tool to scrub or scrape the breech face clean. Get a clean patch behind the extractor hook and remove any gunk that built up there. (It will be periodically necessary to disassemble the slide to clean the extractor properly, and the striker/channel as well ‒ talk to your department armorer about this.) Lastly, wipe down the exterior. Remove any gunk around the extractor pocket, and ensure that your sights are cleaned off, so you can see them properly.
  8. Time for the barrel again. Run that solvent-soaked patch through the bore several more times, then run a few dry patches through the bore to get the gunk out and get the bore mostly dry. Use a dry patch or rag to clean up the feed ramp, to make it clean and shiny (a toothbrush might help, if it’s really fouled). Put a bristle brush on the end of the cleaning rod and run it through the barrel, from the rear, about 5-10 times. Wet a patch with oil and swab the barrel to clear out any particulates, then follow up with dry patches through the barrel to remove any oil and suspended debris. Inspect the bore and chamber to ensure they are clean. If not, then repeat the process as required, until you get the results you want. Wipe down the exterior of the barrel with your rag, so that both interior and exterior are clean and dry.

Best Gun Lube for Glocks

Glocks are reliable and can work in any weather condition, but like every other type of firearm, they need lubing.

Friction, dirt, and fouling can cause a Glock to jam or malfunction.

When you use your gun regularly, to hunt game or shoot targets, but hardly ever lube it, it will get rusty over time.

And a rusty gun is pretty much a useless gun. It cannot shoot accurately and it is going to jam.

This is why expert shooters lube their guns as regularly as they use them. You don’t need to buy the most expensive lube. The best gun lube for Gocks is all you need to keep your gun in good working condition and to protect it from corrosion and rust.

There are many options to choose from and finding one that meets your needs can prove to be difficult if you don’t know what you are looking for. Gun lubes are not made the same way.

Some have harsh compounds to loosen up carbon, copper, and lead fouling. Others use synthetic oils and other mild ingredients to protect your gun from rust and keeping the movable parts of your gun in working condition.

So which type of gun lube should you buy?

Please read on and find out.

3. HOPPE’S M-Pro 7 LPX Gun Oil Gun Lube for Glocks Review

HOPPE'S M-Pro 7 LPX

M-Pro 7 LPX gun oil is another excellent lube by Hoppe’s.

And we added it to our list because it’s an affordable lube that can prevent your Glock from jamming.

After all, which gun owner doesn’t want a gun oil that does an excellent job of preventing gun malfunctions without spending a lot of dough.

Another great feature about this lube is that it leaves a protective film to help protect your gun from corrosion or rust.

The film remains in place for a long time giving your gun longer protection. So unlike poor quality lubes, this one when applied, does not evaporate. It also does not gum or separate.

The protective film also repels dirt and dust. But this oil is only good when you need to use your firearm, but not store it. Although the film can last for some time, it is not permanent.

HOPPE'S M-Pro 7 LPX Review, Pros and Cons

So when you store your gun after oiling it with this lube, you’ll need to remove it after some time to apply another coat of oil. This is going to keep your gun from gathering dust or dirt.

The problem with this is that you can only do it so many times before you get tired. So it’s best to use a thicker oil or gun grease on your firearm if you intend to store it for long.

M-Pro 7 is a thin oil that can only do too much. The great thing about it is that you can use it to lube those difficult to reach places inside your gun without using too much lube.  

Some users don’t like the way it smells. Others don’t have a problem with the way it smells. So it’s up to you to judge if the smell is bearable or not. But there are no complaints of the odor being pungent or harsh.

4. Wzson Lucas Extreme Duty Review

Wzson Lucas Extreme Duty

Wzson Lucas Extreme Duty gun oil is a great lube for your Glock, 1911, and any other pistol.

You can also use it to oil shotguns, full auto guns, semi-auto rifles, and more.

The oil can withstand high pressure and heat.

And when we say high temperatures, this oil can resist temperatures reaching up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. And if you need to use the oil in freezing weather, it can withstand -38 degrees Fahrenheit.

So it’s safe to say that this oil does well in harsh conditions. So if you hunt during the winter season, and this is when your Glock is likely to jam, you can use this oil to prevent the gun from malfunctioning.

We did notice that it’s not as viscid as Hoppe’s No. 9 lubricating oil. When you apply it to parts of your gun, it does take some time to flow to those areas.

And that’s not really a downside, but if you need to quickly lube your gun before shooting it, you might want to get a lube that is highly viscous. But the good thing about this oil is that it’s not messy.

Wzson Lucas Extreme Duty Review, Pros and Cons

The Lucas Extreme Duty gun oil like other quality gun lubes gives your gun a protective film that repels dust, dirt, and moisture. And protects the metal parts of you Glock from rust and corrosion.

It also protects your gun from fouling buildup, which is great because you don’t need to give you’re a gun a major clean every now and then.

And when you need to remove carbon, powder, and lead residue from the bore of you Glock, the lube can make that a lot easier.

Unless you are dealing with extremely stubborn fouling, you might find that you may not even need a solvent to loosen up the dirt and crud.

The other thing is that it does not evaporate. Once you apply the oil, it is going to stay there for long, giving your gun long-term protection against rust and corrosion.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BSj4a3UhdgH/

For easy application, the lube comes with a needle applicator to help you reach tight spaces. The applicator also helps you control how much oil you use. And this is quite beneficial because excess lube tends to attract dirt and dust.

So overall, this an excellent lube if you are looking for something that works well and does great in any weather condition.

The truth is both lubes are great for any type of gun. The only major difference between the two is the price tag. Break Free is a very popular lube that is used by avid shooters as well as the military and police officers.

Buyer’s Guide

If you are an expert shooter, what do you look for in a gun oil? Is it the viscosity,  or how effective it is at preventing rust and corrosion?

If you a new shooter looking to buy a quality gun lube, you need to have more than just an idea on what lube to buy. It is easy to get carried away by advertisements and price tags. But that should not be the case. Not when selecting a gun lube.

Now, there are literally hundreds of gun oils out there, and picking the one that meets your needs is not at all easy. There are certain factors that you need to consider, to ensure that you are getting the best lube for your Glock.

So let us look at those factors.

Viscosity

The reason why gun owners use gun lubes is that they need every metal part of their gun lubed to keep it from getting rusty or dirty. But there are certain spaces of your gun that are hard to reach and using a cloth or cotton bud may not help much.

It is for this reason, that gun lubes exist. Many of them are made of highly viscous compounds.

So that when you apply the lube it flows to every crack and crevice in your gun. And since the lube is not thick, you don’t need to use much oil. A few drops are enough.

But some lubes are not very viscid. They don’t flow as fast and therefore, take longer to reach every metal inch of your gun. But on the flip side, thick oils last longer than thin oils.

A lube that is less viscid stays in place for longer giving your gun longer protection against fouling buildup, dirt, rust, and corrosion.

So when it comes to viscosity, it entirely up to you if you want a thick or thin lube. They both do an excellent job of keeping your gun in good condition. It all depends on what you use your gun for and how regularly you use it.

If you shoot targets regularly, get a thin lube as it oils faster.

Effectiveness

Do you want a lube that prevents rust and corrosion as well as repel water, dust, and dirt? Or do you want a lube that also prevents carbon, lead, and copper fouling?

Different lubes are created using different types of ingredients. This is why some lubes are able to protect your gun from rust and corrosion, prevent fouling build-up and repel dirt and water.

But how can you tell if a lube can do all these things? The truth is you cannot. You would need to test the lube or read customer reviews to see what other users have said about its effectiveness.

We recommend reading user reviews to help you make a solid decision. But then again, many guns lubes are not expensive. So you can buy two or three of them and test each to see which one works best. 

Also consider buying a gun lube that does not evaporate, freeze, or harden. Ideally, you want a lube whose effectiveness is not going to be affected by temperature conditions. 

Performance

Not all gun lubes do well in any weather condition. Some lubes cannot resist very high and low temperatures and some can. 

But don’t be surprised if you find a lube that claims it can withstand any weather condition, and many of them do, but it cannot. The proof is always in the pudding.

You cannot know if a gun lube is weatherproof unless you test it or ask a gun expert or check out user reviews.

Also, you may not need a lube that can perform in any weather condition. If you live in an area where temperatures are always high or low or change depending on the season, there are lubes designed for specific weather conditions.

Safety

Some gun lubes contain harsh compounds. And these compounds might be inflammable or have very strong smells.

Lubes that contain inflammable compounds should not be placed near a source of heat. And lubes that have strong, choking smells should not be handled without gloves and masks.

Lubes that don’t contain harsh chemicals are either odorless or have a nice smell. Those that have pleasant smells contain additives and that’s what makes smell nice.

The point is, go for lubes that are user-friendly and environmentally friendly.

Price

Gun lubes don’t cost the same. Some are made for the high-end market. Others are made to cater to the low-end market. But in general, many gun lubes are not costly.

But you also don’t want the cheapest lube out there. If it’s that cheap, you need to ask yourself questions. Cheap is always expensive. You can buy a lube because it is extremely inexpensive, and end up with a damaged gun.

Don’t let a lube that costs a few bucks damage a gun that costs hundreds of dollars.

Conclusion

Now that we have reached the end of our article. We hope that the information we have provided you is going to help you make a sound decision when choosing a gun lube.

Don’t be afraid to try out different types of lubes other than the ones we have reviewed in this article. You can learn a lot by experimenting with different lubes. But always get as much information about a lube before using it.

GLOCKs represent over 60 percent of the handgun market. They are a favorite of law enforcement, competitive shooters, home defenders, plinkers, and citizens legally carrying concealed for self-defense. GLOCK is also a top choice among new shooters. This represents a large cross-section of shooters with a wide range of opinions—some based on fact, others… who knows.

Glock 23 field stripped

Recently, I was at the range. Two shooters were having a spirited debate about maintaining their GLOCKs. Being as I had three GLOCKs on my bench, two of which were obviously customized; I was quickly tapped to play arbitrator.

The ‘discussion’ was centered around the proper amount of lubricant to use on a GLOCK based on the polymer design. One fellow seemed to believe the GLOCK was designed in such a way as to never (or almost never) require any lubricant. The other fellow wanted to practically dip the whole thing in a vat of oil. This caused more than a little concern and a spirited debate among half-dozen or so shooters before it was over.

I had my own thoughts, but after hearing the crowd’s arguments—some contradictory, but very good—I began to doubt my own knowledge. After all, where did I come up with it? Was it gained during a factory tour? Perhaps a shooting session with a veteran writer or competitive shooter. In the end, I could not remember. Like all good writers professing to be an expert, I called an engineer at the factory who is much smarter than me, took copious notes, rearranged the words slightly and now present it as expert advice!

GLOCK Maintenance

You’ll need to start with a pistol that has been field stripped, thoroughly cleaned and dried. Next, slightly dampen a clean patch with your favorite gun oil. Use the patch to wipe the barrel and the inside of the slide where the barrel hood and slide ride against each other. Then, use the same patch to lubricate the barrel lug at the bottom of the barrel.

Taking the slide with the breech end up (that’s the end facing you when the dangerous end is facing the bad guy) put a drop of oil in each of the slide rail grooves. Let the oil run down the slide rail grooves. If it does not go all of the way, don’t worry. The oil will be distributed once the slide is mounted on the receiver and cycled.

Likely, the most important drop of oil goes where the trigger bar and connector meet. A failure to properly lubricate the junction of the trigger bar and connector will lead to premature wear and a very heavy trigger pull. That’s bad for shooting accuracy and the gun.

Glock transfer bar and connector

Reading the directions, you would almost have to side with the guy that wanted to dip it oil. However, the opposite is true. It is important to remember that you do not want to over-lubricate a GLOCK. GLOCK pistols are in fact designed to function with only small amounts of lubrication. Over-lubricating results in large amounts of burnt and unburnt powder, brass shavings, dirt, lint and other foreign matter gathering to form sludge. These will affect the way the gun functions. At the least, they will affect accuracy. At the worst, they cause a failure to fire at a critical moment when your life is at stake.

Don’t Overdo a Good Thing!

While on the subject of over lubricating a GLOCK, there is a word of caution that I would be remiss by not mentioning. This one is important so pay attention. Instead of what to do, this is a “what not to do.” Do not allow any oil to reach the inside of the firing pin channel, the extractor, breech face, barrel chamber or feed ramp. Likewise, you should not need any lubricant in the magazine.

All of the aforementioned areas should remain clean, but lubricant-free. Lubricant in these areas will cause contamination and gunk. The buildup is likely to cause a failure to eject or failure to fire.

It is that easy. All totaled, you are looking at about six drops of oil. One in the slide, one in each side of the slide rails grooves, one on the barrel and another on the barrel lug and the last one on the intersection of the trigger bar and connector. The entire process should take about one minute, but the rewards will keep your GLOCK running through thousands of rounds.

How has your maintenance program compared to this one? Share your thoughts or experiences in the comment section.
