He didn't degrease the gun before "lubing" it with water.

True, but I ran about 1,500 rounds thru it, without lube, in preparation for this episode.

is that a stainless steel barrel or did you polish the factory one?

No, he lubed it with water.

Man, running lead in a factory barrel, water lube. Before you know it California will pass a bill where one can marry same sex couples.

I lube everything I own with Shell Rotella motor oil. That includes cars, motorcycles, scooters, and guns.

Haven't had any problems with any of them.

It's a fitted BarSto, but the next episode of California's Lead will show a G21SF with a factory OEM barrel running Bear Creek moly lead bullets.

You degreased the gun then fired 1500 rounds through it with no lubrication at all! That's actually kind of impressive. I'm curious, did you get any galling or adhesive wear of the mating surfaces?

.45 ftw!

This is only possible because he when he first got the gun I he didn't clean off the copper colored grease that Glock put on their guns. I heard from a Glock armorer there is ground unicorn hoof and yeti semen in that stuff. God for bid you don't "break in the gun without the copper lube.

I think you guys understand the main point here. All the magic gun lubes out there now to confuse the newbies and the dont shoot lead in your glock myths are driving us crazy.

At that same location the week before the guys on my squad we giving me crap for shooting lead in my 21sf which is all stock minus the sights and recoil spring rod. I have 11500 rounds in that gun with no issue and it runs cleaner on Bear Creek bullets then the FMJ.

Trust me Highlanders glocks are filthy and he didnt even clean that gun after this test. He just put it away and will shoot it next week at the match again. Obviously glocks need and should have some oil but it doesnt matter what and it sure doesnt have to be oil from a frog or snake then baked on in the oven etc.

I never degrease any firearm, just detail strip about every 2 years and clean it with Hoppes #9, lubing it about once a month (approximately 1,200 rounds). In this case it was run, without lubing, for about 1,500 rounds before the water thing. This is my 2nd backup G17 for competition, so it only has about 15,000 rounds on it, and it still looks like brand new. I have been using Kellube M12 that I got as product at a match years ago for free. Before that I ran a bottle of CLP that I got for free at a match also. There is the usual slide peening, and some wear on the frame rails and locking block.

You should see Highlanders jeans. He hasnt washed those in about 1-2 months either, lol. This is why we roll to the range in my corolla and not my Platinum Tundra. :)

Where can I buy lighting lizzard lube? Is it better then frog lube?
