Cleaning Glock 17

Just put the first 200 rounds through a new Glock 17 today and don't know much about cleaning it. Is the paperwork that came with it worth anything or is there good information elsewhere?

Suggestions please, kthx

Honestly, I wouldnt bother cleaning it yet. The rails all have factory lube on them, it should last for a while. At the very least, if you want to clean something, run a brush covered in some hoppes #9, then run some patches through it until its dry. Glocks don't need a lot but I do still like to keep mine pretty clean.

There are youtube videos on it, I can't find the one I remembered watching but I'm sure any are good

Is it the new Gen4 edition?

Regarding cleaning, the nylon brush that comes with it is adequate for most cleaning, when used with Breakfree CLP.

yes.

I had a choice between a used Gen1 with a single magazine for $450 or a new Gen4 with 2 magazines (and the case) for $500

tough choice

It's a Glock. I'm not joking when I say, don't worry about cleaning it anytime soon.


Unless you drop it into a vat of dung or a drainage ditch full of raw sewage, don't even worry about it.



Seriously. It is even recommended that you DON'T clean a new Glock for several hundred rounds.

Really? Why's that? The new recoil spring? I would have thought the new ones would have been an improvement.

Either way, what they should have really done was introduce a single stack model.

the recoil is a little worse and it tends to shoot to the left, for whatever reason. not just me, many people in my dept had the same problem.

It's true. They do not need to be treated like babies, rubbed and oiled like a dysfuctional baby's asshole.

They just work. And I doubt anyone that says their accuracy sucks, couldn't produce a shot group any better with even the most fine of firearms.

Given a Glock, or a fine-tuned revolver.... none of us are going to be able to shoot through the middle of a washer tossed into the air. That makes for nice show onTV, but is it useful?

1 or 2 shots even CLOSE to the right place will make the the correct result.


Federal HST. Just saying
