How to Care for Your GLOCK
To make sure your GLOCK pistol keeps working reliably, you should clean and lubricate it on a regular schedule. Refer to your owner’s manual for the proper lubrication points, as well as the proper amounts of lubrication required.
Your GLOCK pistol should be cleaned and lubricated:
- When it’s brand new, before it’s fired for the first time
- After each time it’s fired
- At least once a month, if it hasn’t been used in that time
- If it’s been exposed to rain, snow, perspiration, salt water, dirt, dust, etc.
If you are using your GLOCK pistol very heavily, we recommend that you have it inspected periodically. A GLOCK certified armorer can do this, or you can send it to GLOCK, Inc. to be inspected.
If your GLOCK needs another part replaced, that should be done by a certified GLOCK armorer.
Cleaning Your GLOCK
Proper cleaning and lubrication prevents corrosion and removes accumulated dirt and debris that can affect your pistol’s operation.
NOTE: Applying the correct amount of lubrication is key. Too much lubrication can affect the pistol’s performance.
Each time you clean your GLOCK pistol, it should be field-stripped (disassembled into its major components).
