I also do a drop on the barrel and smear it around then put 1 drop next to the recoil and slide. Seems to work great. Thanks for the pic I was just basically going off what I did for the glock missing #3 and #5.

I like to lube it all very heavy and then wipe off the excess from the exterior.

I'm with you.

YES!



Baffled as well. I just cleaned/lubed my M&P 45 for the first time and I had no idea where #3 refers to.

Works well on my AR-15 BCGs too...

I use Remoil or V80 VCI oil and it seems to work well on my other firearms. I live in a very dry environment in northern CA so humidity isnt an issue. I worry about salt from sweaty hands but that is about it. I also clean the outside of the gun with WD40, which is something gun owners either love or hate. I have used WD40 on my 1911 collection for 20 years without issue but some people are highly offended by WD40 use on a firearm.

I se a lot of you are from down south or out west. I am from the north and the best thing i could find is the wilson

oil in the syringe. its slicker than pig snot. grease does not do a whole lot of good up here except on tractors.

As with lubricating any metallic, mechanical part, sometimes too much is...too much. Lube sparingly!

While lubricant will attract dust, so what. In the military we cleaned our weapons from pistol to tank barrels whether we needed to or not. I always cleaned my own weapons as a tank company commander, and as part of the crew was a part of main gun cleaning and bore sighting.



This is based on lots of experience with weapons from hot and humid to cold and dry, do clean your weapon and lubricate it after each use.

Learned alot looking at the pics and suggestions. I've always just used the tip of my finger to spread a light coating on all these areas. That is, where my finger will fit....

I love the technical term that they used, "shiny". hehe



In addition to the friction points shown above, I like to always rub a super thin coat of gun oil all over the outside of the barrel and the inside and outside of the slide to prevent surface rust from forming. Especially necessary in the ultra humid South Florida climate I'm in.
