Oiling your Glock regularly will help keep it functioning properly and prolong its lifespan.
Here’s a quick guide on how to oil a Glock:
1. Remove the magazine and clear the chamber. Make sure the gun is completely unloaded before proceeding.
2. Use a bore brush to scrub the barrel and barrel hood (the area surrounding the barrel). Be sure to also brush the chambers, feed ramps, and any other nooks and crannies where dirt or grime might accumulate.
3. Using a clean cloth, wipe down all of the surfaces you just cleaned with the bore brush. Pay extra attention to the feed ramps, ensuring they are free of any debris.
4. Apply a few drops of oil to a clean cloth and wipe down the entire gun, including the barrel, slide, frame, and all moving parts. Be sure not to use too much oil, as this can attract dirt and grime.
5. Reassemble your gun and you’re good to go!

Oiling a Glock is a simple process that only takes a few minutes.
To start, you will need to gather the following supplies:
- gun oil
- a clean cloth
- cotton swabs.
Once you have your supplies, follow these steps:
1. Remove the magazine from the gun and make sure the chamber is empty.
2. Use the cloth to wipe down the entire surface of the gun, paying special attention to areas that tend to collect dirt and grime (like the trigger).
3. Put a few drops of gun oil onto each cotton swab and then run it along with all metal parts of the gun (avoiding any plastic or rubber).
4. Reassemble the gun and you’re all set!
- Always use a high-quality oil designed for firearms.
- Apply the oil sparingly to avoid attracting debris and grit that can cause jams and other problems.
- Be sure to wipe away any excess oil after lubricating your gun.
With those considerations in mind, here is a basic outline of how to oil a Glock:
1. Start by removing the magazine and ensuring the chamber is empty.
2. Apply one or two drops of oil to the barrel bore snake.
3. Feed the bore snake through the barrel from the breech (chamber end) to the muzzle (barrel end).
4. Remove the bore snake and wipe away any excess oil.
5. Apply one or two drops of oil to a clean rag and wipe down the slide, being sure to get into all the nooks and crannies.
6. Apply one or two drops of oil to the frame, being careful not to get any on the grip area.
7. Reassemble your gun and you’re good to go!
If you’re referring to the Glock pistol, there are a few things you need to know before attempting to oil it:
- Always consult your owner’s manual when performing any maintenance on your firearm.
- Only use quality lubricants designed specifically for firearms. Using anything else could potentially damage your gun.
With that said, here are the basic steps for oiling a Glock:
1. Make sure the gun is unloaded. Remove the magazine and clear the chamber of any ammunition.
2. Use a cleaning rod or similar tool to slightly depress the striker spring assembly (located just above the trigger). This will allow you to apply the oil directly to the striker assembly without disassembling the gun.
3. Apply a few drops of oil to the striker assembly. Be sure to coat all moving parts evenly.
4. Wipe away any excess oil with a clean cloth.
5. Reassemble the gun and test the trigger for smooth operation.
