GLOCK LUBRICATION POINTS

Lubricate at each of the points as shown in the illustration. Wipe the outside of barrel, including the barrel hood and lugs, the inside top of the slide forward of the ejection port where the barrel hood rubs against the slide and the opening that the barrel slides through in front of the slide. One drop of oil should be spread along the length of each side rail cut. Most importantly, a drop of oil is needed where the rear end of the trigger bar touches the connector at the right rear corner of the frame. Note - I use only Break Free CLP to clean and lubricate my pistol. It saves a lot of time and does a good job.

Lubricating The Field Stripped Pistol

To properly lubricate your pistol, after it has been thoroughly cleaned and dried, use a clean patch that has been slightly dampened with a quality gun oil. Wipe the outside of barrel, including the barrel hood and lugs, the inside top of the slide forward of the ejection port where the barrel hood rubs against the slide and the opening that the barrel slides through in front of the slide. One drop of oil should be spread along the length of each side rail cut. Most importantly, a drop of oil is needed where the rear end of the trigger bar touches the connector at the right rear corner of the frame.

Do Not Over-Lubricate

Do not over-lubricate your Glock pistol, as large quantities of oil or grease will collect un-burnt powder and other residue, which could interfere with proper functioning of your Clock pistol.

GLOCK LUBRICATION WARNING

Do not put oil inside the firing pin channel or magazine. The magazine (inside and out) and breach face should be wiped dry before reassembly. Leaving solvent or lubricant in these areas could cause contamination of primers and failure to fire.
