    Glock trigger bar over/under lube?

    Hi all!

    I was lubricating the key areas of my Glock tonight and I had a difficult time getting that very important one drop of lubrication in that little spot in the receiver (I think it's called the trigger bar connector).

    In any case, because I know for a fact that the entire drop did not make it down in that area (and I'm not really sure if any lube made it down in that area) I'm at a lost for what to do next. Should I put another drop down there and risk over-lubricating that area? Should I shoot the pistol without enough lubrication in that one area where everyone says it's very important?

    Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

    The more lube the more dirt it will attract. Another drop should not be a big deal.

    don't worry about it. one drop, 1/2 drop, or no drop it will work with no problems. that is the best thing about the glock. it don't take a lot of oil to make things work.

    Frankmako: Thanks for the advice. Would you say just to keep the pistol as-is and put another drop of lube on the connecter after I go to the range next?

    As long as you get a little in there it's fine. Glocks can run dry with no problems. If it makes you feel better you can put a drop in after your next session (or not). I don't think it matters. I armorer breakdown mine after every range session, clean it with dish detergent, and then let dry. One drop of CLP on trigger bar, one drop in each rail, and a light coat over the barrel.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    If you clean/scrub your firearm with a good CLP Lube (Cleans Lubricates Protects) there will still be a lubricating effect bonded to all the metal surfaces even if those surfaces have been wiped decently dry.
    Break-Free, FirePower FP-10, & WeaponShield are good Cleaner/lubes to use and then don't over-lubricate.

    GLOCKs run better without a lot of lube! If you oil the frame rails (4) and the trigger spring, you're good to go. Some folks do lube the connector/trigger bar in the hope that it will give them a better trigger pull; I have not found that to be the case.

    I'll go that one better...
    I have a 23c and found I know when to clean the weapon...
    The front sight gets hard to see...

    The compensator throws some of the gun powder residue onto the
    white front sight...

    Another point for a G23c!
