Just an FYI: This doesn't include pistols at combat distant, but remember that there's a reason why rifleman/snipers use a fouling shot to keep shots consistent. A wet barrel "can" cause altered bullet performance. I would not use lube in a barrel unless I was going to keep it in the safe for awhile. My Glocks and M&Ps never see lube in the barrel.

Also I think oiling the barrel for preservation is old thinking. Modern bore cleaner and gun cleaners have solvents with rust preventatives added into them. IE: Hoppes #9. Don't make things more complicated that it has to be...

No need to IMO and the LOL! Statement above has to be one of the silliest I've ever read.

Anyplace where you have metal on metal friction lube is a good idea. A dry patch down the barrel before you head to the range will take care of any excess.

Are you saying that there are 7 lubrication points on an M&P? Is that what your saying? Or is that what you read in the Manual? LOL

I'm guilty of a light oiling after cleaning, followed by a dry patch, and I have read the manual.........

Yes, the seven lube pints and the rest only get wiped with a cloth.

I apologize, I was being a smart a**.

I got what you meant, and thought my reply would be funny. I most decidedly watch your posts as a learning experience. (I'm still guilty of "lightly" lubing the barrel). As stated before, old habit, as is Hoppes #9. I have been using the Rem oil cloths, but may look into the silicon rags.

As always, thanks for your input.

I learned when I was younger it was always better to be a smarta** than a dumba**. I can always appreciate a smartass**, but I tend to play laconic deadpan in return. Throw down the sarcasm more often, it keeps the others guessing.

Rem oil has teflon, it is what I use for a light oil. I use the Hoppes cloth since is easy to use, it does not make a mess and it doesn't stink.

I was lubing the heck out of my M&P 45 compact at first, and it gave me problems. Then I started using Militec dry lube and the problems went away. I use it in the bore. But I was always taught with any firearm to run a dry patch thru the bore just before shooting it. So I still do it.

I usually just spray some lube down the barrel, then run the bore brush through it. When I'm done i run dry patches until the they come out clean.

After cleaning. I do not oil anything besides the 7 points in the manual. For the reasons listed above. No harm in a light coat for long term storage but I would wipe it dry before using.
