    Cleaning a new glock 23 gen 4


    Ok so far ive shot around 300rds since ive got the gun. Ive wiped it down to get the carbon off the gun. Ive been told not to clean it untill the factory copper lube wears away. In which my case the copper lube is nearly to mostly gone lol. Should i go ahead and clean it?

    I've always cleaned mine after 100 or so rounds. Which means, about every time I shoot it. I haven't heard about not cleaning a new gun.

    Glocks can honestly take whatever you throw at them. You can clean it now or very rarely clean it and it will perform like new. I clean mine once or twice a year which is thousands of rounds. Some guys clean it every time they shoot it. Others will chime in saying they couldn't tell you the last time they have cleaned theirs. I think KeithD says he has 10k+ on his without cleaning it just to prove the point that cleanliness is not as critical as some may think. It really doesn't matter about the copper lube, but if you do clean it with the copper lube still on it, don't try to remove it. Let it wear off on its own. Clean it if you want or just shoot it, its your choice.

    I like the whole "a clean gun is a good gun" thing which like i said ive cleaned the carbon off the exterior. I think i might clean the slide and its components. Only because i noticed some debris on the slide when i take it off and also some down in the barrel. Any suggestions for cleansers/lubes?

    I would recommend Frog lube. OklahomaSafeShooting, he is a member here. He sales it. I would recommend getting it from him. I works great. I just triied it and was impressed, and its hard to impress me most of the time.

    I've heard of shooting a new Glock until the copper grease wears off, but I don't do it... I shoot a new Glock exactly as it comes out of the box the first time... After that first shoot at the range, it gets stripped, cleaned and lubed just all my other Glocks...

    I usually clean my Glocks after I shoot them... I might skip the cleaning if I shoot Friday night and again Saturday morning, but I like to clean them every time between shooting them.
