Default Best gun oil for a Glock

I know this could be opinion, but I was wondering what gun oil do people use on their Glocks or is there one Glock suggests. I have seen people use Ballistol. What would you guys suggest?

Welcome to the forum.

I switched from CLP to Ballistol awhile back. Both work great for basic cleaning and lubrication. I confess that I also use actual gun oil on the rails, barrel and connector though (any good quality gun oil should work fine) once everything is clean and dry. Ballistol leaves a pretty slick coating on parts so the four drops of oil I use might be overkill.

Glocks need very, very little lubing to function properly.

Thanks. I have heard that Glocks need very little lubrication. And people say to use very little. Many videos I have seen people wiping excess oil off.

4 drops are all you need. 3 if you have nukinfuts29 polish your barrel for you. I have a little, I think 2 oz., bottle of Hoppes oil. It has lasted me since 2006 and still has half the bottle left.
