Well if you own one it came with one of these

And if you were to open and read it youd find this.
And the answer to your question

WoW. It was just a little sarcasm. LOL
It looks a lot like the way You'd lube a Glock.
But thanks for taking your time to show me.
FYI. You can buy them used and that doesn't come with them. 99.9% of the time.

Thanks!

After hearing about it on you tube, I have fully converted to Ballistol. I was for over 50 years a hoppe guy with just a dab of a light oil like rem oil where suggested, but the wife finally voiced her opinion enough for me on the hoppe smell. It works nice and is good stuff. I am converted and happy

LOL you can "google" it and get a copy

Something everyone should do.

You know have the manual for the weapon.

Avoids "sarcastic" questions on the web.

Glad I could assist you.

I use M-Pro7 gun cleaner to clean it after going to the range. Then, for lubrication and protection, I use M-Pro7's LPX. Works for me, without any problems.

I've been using Frog Lube on my Shield 9mm for the last 3 years. 2200 rounds and no problems.

As my friend said: Open your bottle of Hoppes 9 to get the smell.

Use Break Free CLP.

Close the bottle of Hoppes 9 without using it.

Coconut oil is pretty cheap, unless you stick a Frog Lube label on it, sorry, not impressed with repackaged cheap cooking oil sold as a expensive gun lube.

Agreed!

I've been using Eezox for over 30 years now, and don't plan on changing.

Another Eezox fan here. For cleaning sometimes its Ballistol or CLP, whichever is at hand, lube is CLP or Mobil 1 and then the blued guns get wiped down with Eezox for protection.

I use it for everything; clean, lube and corrosion protection.

On my Shields I'm currently using what TW25B grease and oil I have left.
When that's gone I'll probably switch over to the Mobil 1 0w-40 true synthetic I've been using for years on my AR's.
