    Need quick suggestion regarding new Glock 19

    I just bought a new Glock 19 and am wanting to head to the range and put about 150 rounds through it and see how it goes. However, it is currently 4 degrees outside so i dont really want to go outside and clean and lubricate it.

    I know it is recommended to clean and lube before its first use, which I did with my Sig P220 and FNP-40.

    Is that my only option or could i do something else and then clea properly after the range session?

    Thanks for the help

    All Glocks need very little lube. A tiny dab on the rails is sufficient, a dry lube is even better for the Brrr temps. No grease is called for anywhere. If all you have is oil, put some on a Q-tip and run it down the rails.

    Run a clean patch thru the barrel to remove any dust.
    Then go shooting!

    I agree and then get to the range and shoot that bad boy!! Don't forget the range report. Did you get the RTF model?

    Agreed. Glocks rock any which way you shoot them.

    Why do you have to go outside to lubricate it?

    If you field strip it, it should have some of that factory copper-colored lube already on it. That should be enough for the first outing at least.

    If you have a brand new Glock, all the lubrication necessary has already been added at the factory. Sounds like a good time to work it in! Personally, I wouldn't touch it with your cleaning supplies until you've shot those 150 rounds and it actually needs cleaning. Breaking in a Glock pretty much means getting it out of the box and shooting it. 4 or 101 makes no matter.

    Glocks really don't require oiling even on the rails to function reliably but its always a good idea with a new handgun to break in down (field strip) and inspect it and apply some light oil to the rails and swab out the barrel. Then shoot the crap out of it. I am not sure I am following you about the cold part, just sit at your kitchen table and do it if you don't have a shop, garage or work bench.

    Main reason I mentioned the cold was just the ventilation issues with cleaning a firearm. Didnt think it was to safe in my kitchen all closed up.

    Get Gunzilla, and you can do all of your cleaning in the kitchen, just like I do with no worries about ventilation or toxic substances.

    I didn't clean my Glock 27 after I bought it, but I did apply a little Hoppe's Lubrication Oil on the rails before shooting it for the first time. Never had a single issue with it. It's absolutely rock solid.
