    Glock special sauce

    Glock owners know this. The bronze metallic stuff the Austrian gunmaker puts on all their slide rails. I suspect it's just anti-seize but I'm sure Gaston and gang have a trade name for it.

    Is anti-seize a good substitute for Rem Oil? Is it anti-seize or truly a Glock special sauce?

    Edit: found out it's this:

    Loctite C5-A, the lube of the gods!!!

    Never thought of copper anti-seize as a lube, good idea though. I can attest to copper (and nickel) anti-seize sticking to everything, I use it in the garage all the time. I think I'll try a couple dabs on the rails of my XD next cleaning.

    Two posts up from yours is the answer. I think I'll get me some. Rem Oil dries up too fast!

    I recently (April 2013) purchased a Blue Label, Gen 4 Glock 30 from my local Glock LE dealer. When I got the pistol home I field stripped it and noticed something looked odd. You guessed it, no copper anti seize was put on the pistol from the factory. I was not really concerned about it but I was curious as all my other Glocks in the past had more than their fair share of the stuff. I called Glock and spoke with a Glock tech and was told the only reason for the copper anti seize was for lubrication in the case of long term storage. The tech said as long as I lubed it according to the manual everything would be fine.

    So, I got out the ol' M-Pro 7 and lubed the 30 up and shot away. It functions just like all my other Glocks do.

    I know they put it on at the factory to keep it lubed before it is sold but is this anti-sieze something that can be used on a regular basis or is it something gun powder and other debris will stick to and cause the pistol not to function properly?

    Thanks for the advice. I never gave that a thought for an anti seize for a gun. I worked in a plastic injection molding factory for twenty years and they always used that stuff on the threads of the injection nozzles, which by the way get well over 400 degrees.

    I hate it because IT'S SO MESSY!

    I am so glad to read this thread. When I read the title at first, I thought Glock was going into the hot sauce business. I like Tabasco, but Louisiana Hot is better.

    I worked briefly at a shady gun shop that would put it on the rails of used guns so they could sell them as "like new".

    We use this stuff where I work on bolts. The bolts hold fixtures that we put in a oven to hold parts we are heating. We heat these parts to temps up to 375 C. The bolts are easy to remove unless someone forgets to clean them first. That stuff builds up after a while and gets hard then you can't hardly turn the nuts at all. I never thought of using it on a gun for lube but it makes sense. I may ask my boss if I can have a little to try on my AR.
