Got my new Glock today, can't wait until Friday when I can head to the range. What is this copper lube that is in the gun. Manual says to leave it there as long as possible so I assume do not clean the gun? How many rounds before you clean. Had a guy tell me today he hadnt cleaned his in 2 years...lol

Welcome to the Forum TxGlock65! You can shoot Glocks straight out of the box but we always do a quick cleaning on ours before we shoot them - but we do leave the copper lube. We field strip ours after every range trip and detail strip after 1000 rounds or so. I like a clean gun. That way I know it's ready to go but that's just me. :) Enjoy!

I have always kept my guns clean too. Do you go back with the copper lube when you do give it a good cleaning?

No. Glocks actually like to run a little dry. They need very little oil. We use a little CLP on the rails and a couple of other places. The oil points should be in the owners manual.

Thanks. Sorry for the simple questions, my first Glock.
No problem at all. We like to help everyone out here. :)

Shoot about 500 rounds down the tube and then put 2 drops of oil on the barrel hood and shoot 500 more rounds. Then it is ready for a wiped down and field clean.

Congrats! Where are the pics? ;)

The copper lube isn't going to hurt anything. Leave it on like the manual says.

I clean mine (wipe down) after each range trip, but that's just me.

There are some on here, that "never" clean and their weapons function fine.

Great choice! I shot mine at a range and had trouble with it at first. The range marshal checked it out and said a couple drops of oil should do the trick. No trouble since! My next two Glocks were cleaned and oiled right out of the box to get rid of the copper sludge. No problems. Follow the oiling directions in the manual. They don't need much and it'll stay clean longer too. Best of luck to you!
