I was tinkering with my G26 yesterday …polishing my slide lock lever when I noticed a bottle of Dry Lube that was in my Dremel case from when I was working on my son's Pinewood Derby car. It's not the Graphite type that is typically used, it is a PTFE ("Teflon") type powder. It's basically teflon plummers tape in powder form. It repels water, doesn't cake up if it DOES get wet , and is SUPER SLICK to the touch.
I've heard so many people talk about running their Glocks "Dry" that it got me thinking...why not run it dry with the added benefit of a lube that won't gum up the works?
I'll post a pic of the bottle when I get a chance. This isn't commercially available stuff, I think the name on the bottle is "Lab Lube"
Thoughts?

Well, I "lubed" up my G26 and I'm going to try and get to the range before the end of the week to test it out. The application method was: Puff some on rub with finger and blow off the excess. The slide action FEELS smoother and so does the trigger pull when dry firing. I'm really looking forward to testing it out.
Snooch: Thats deffinately it.
Results to come!

OK, well, I FINALLY got to the range to test the dry lube theory. Unfortunatly, I was only able to fire about 75 rounds or so because my wife was having issues with her gun (thats for another thread). However, I CAN say that the dry lube made cleaning a HELL of a lot easier. I was able to do my basic cleaning with nothing more than an old toothbrush. I have to admit that it sped things up for me at home, although I find cleaning my gun almost as therapeutic as shooting it. After brushing everything out, I powdered everything up and reassembled without blowing it out as I did before. I worked the slide several times and blew off any powder that was expelled out onto the exterior of the gun. after working the slide a few times, I can honestly say everything feels as smooth as glass. It really is impressive. Here are a couple shots of what the re-lubed slide and lower look like now.
