    The only thing I see wrong is the lack of proper lubrication. The rail will develope wear marks as soon as the weapon is discharged. The ones shown in the photos are most likely from QC testing.

    I think you're g-t-g.

    Yup - I haven't been thru the amorer course yet, but I do see a noticeable lack of the copper grease that new Glocks ship with?

    If it shoots well, I wouldn't worry about it.

    As far as lube goes, I use TW-25B grease on all my guns. I only use oil where I cannot get the grease. I use "G lube" for my oil. I think Glockmeister or Top Glock sell it.

    For cleaning - I've gone from Hoppes to Gunzilla...works well and does not stink up the house.

    I just looked at my G30 and there are a couple of polished areas where the arrows indicate, probably from the barrel locking/unlocking during cycling. I quit counting rounds, so I can't tell you how many it has thru it. (1000+)

    When I got it, the only place I noticed the copper grease was on the underside of the slide, at the rear. It all got cleaned off on the first range trip.

    I wouldn't get concerned unless you saw heavy abrasion or gouging after firing. I run a Q-tip lightly dabbed in grease down the rails after cleaning and wipe off any visible globs.

    Be sure to look through the manual on it, there's some areas on a Glock that you just shouldn't oil. The book should show you what to lube and what to avoid.

    Congrats on the new Glock.

    This is a brand new, never fired by me gun. I just got it and I have not cleaned it yet. I purchased it for more than three weeks ago, but it had pit rust and then I sent it back to Glock; I got it back for a few minutes ago. They state that they changed the locking block and cleaned it; I noticed right away that they did not use copper grease. I wonder about the marked areas because my old Glock had a perfect clean surface with not marks at all. Regardless if it affects its functionality or not, I do not want to have rust on my firearms; even less if it is a brand new gun.

    Thanks for the advice. I always use Eezox and Militec-1; IMO they are the best cleaner/lube that you can get.

    Take it to the range and put a few loads down the pipe and come back with a report. I'm sure it'll be very favorable.
