  • Dry or oiled barrel in Glock for CC?

    So I’m new to Glocks and concealed carry and curious what is the preferred setup for the barrel for CC. Manual says to keep inside of barrel lightly oiled until ready to shoot and then to wipe excess oil from inside of the barrel prior to shooting. But to store with it lightly oiled.
    So for CC do y’all just leave it lightly oiled? What is the issue leaving it lightly oiled and firing the Glock? Does that reduce bullet rotation?
    Thanks in advance!

    My philosophy is any part of the weapon that causes friction should always have some oil on it, but that’s just me

    I switched to grease. Stays where I put it.

    I put a little oil where I can see wear marks on the barrel. Feels like it cycles more smoothly

    I run an oiled patch through the bore then several dry patches. There’s enough oil soaked into the pores of the steel to protect from rust but no excess oil to contaminate ammo. If I were going to store the gun(unloaded) for months I’d skip the dry patches.

    I would think that’s for rust prevention but I’ve never read the manual honestly. When I clean my guns I use clp in the barrel and wipe it out with a patch. I don’t ever apply any extra oil inside of the barrel outside of that

    Soak the barrel in CLP. Dry patches through the barrel, and rub down the outside with a clean cloth. You’ll be protected from rust, and that’s more than enough lubrication.
