So I did it. Bought the Glock 19 at NJ firearms guild. Bill, one of the FFL's told me that it's best to clean and Lube the weapon once I bring it home. And to use white lithium grease to lube it.

So is white lithium grease an acceptable gun lube?

Congrats on the new toy :D

I can't see why not, I have seen people use a lot worse then white grease in some of the writeups I have read.

Congrats Devs. Enjoy it.

Good for you DA....looking forward to a range report! Enjoy it!! They are great guns.

As for the white lithium grease...I'm sure they know what they are talking about. Doesn't that stuff get pretty tacky though?

He's James Yaeger, who owns Tactical Response:

I think it's probably good to have him make you nervous....

I am dying to take their Fighting Pistol and Fighting Rifle courses. They hold them in NJ once a year or so (just a few weeks ago in 2009), but I think I'll go to TN for the whole experience and to be able to use 30-rnd mags.

His AR-15 lubrication video is also fantastic:

I would avoid lithium white lube. I use RIG's grease and Mobile One syn. oil for none sliding parts. Is it worth it to save a buck and maybe accelerate the wear of the firearm or have it be the cause of a malfunction? There are numerous top quality firearm greases available. Get one from a reputable dealer or supplier such as Brownell's or Midway.

Your Glock came with copper colored grease on all the major parts. Read your manual, it says not to clean this grease off. Also, check this link out:

Well... too late for that now.

But I read somewhere that copper grease can be bought in a hardware store under a "civilian" name.

The only issue I have with that is that it means you can't ever clean the guns' internals. Which is weird. Glocks are made to last, but oil gets fouled up, and lube does wear out.

This really sound like Copper Anti-Seize to me.

If it is; you should be able to pick it up at any really automotive parts store.

Dev,

The copper grease does wear out over time. I was told to let it be until you put a few hundred rounds through it. If you removed it I would not worry. Just get something like gun butter and make sure that you follow the 3-2-1 method. The 1 point on the frame that you need to lubricate will make a world of difference for breaking in the trigger. But in the end it is a Glock and you could put 10,000 rounds through it without ever adding one drop of oil.
