The polish job is okay, but not really necessary, unless you see some rough surfaces on the cruciform. Yes, some people do not believe in cleaning or lubing their Glocks. I would not invite the Muse of Misfires by following their creed. Glock is a combat weapon, with lots of open space in the frame to let gunk fall/shake out. On a much carried, infrequently shot, never cleaned gun, this will allow it to accumulate quantities of everything from cheese-cracker crumbs to lint.
Shoot lots, clean after shooting, enjoy!

I agree that the basic polishing doesn't help much, but I find it does help. Proper lubing (I use TW-25b) of all the right places helps, too, and a 3.5# connector makes a noticeably improvement.
The trigger is still a "sproingy" Glock trigger, though. What are you gonna do?

Yep, right on it. Well not grease, but BreakFree CPL. Some say grease attracts grit and dirt.

Ahh. Just a dab of the real-deal may surprise you. I use Tetra, and leave just the barest film. Of course, I detail my stuff at least once every three months, so.......
I 've said it before, but I highly recommend the Ghost Rocket (factory weight) connector, too!
