Folks, I just got this from a Firearms Instructor email list I'm on. I know the sender and he's a 100% stand-up guy and wouldn't perpetuate BS, so I thought I'd pass this on as a heads up:

I recently had one of my officers bring me his personally owned Glock 27 saying that it would not fire. After clearing it, I dry fired it and all I heard was a thud, not the normal sharp crack. Upon disassembly, I discovered the internal slide parts were coated with a yellowish green sticky slime. (There was only a very small amount of burnt powder residue inside the side by the firing pin.) I asked what kind of cleaner / lube he was using and he said he used: Pro-shot Products Copper Solvent IV

All I can say is be careful if you use this product, as this maybe the result.

As I said the rest of the gun was very clean except for the the parts being coated with this slime.

Like I said in the other thread about cleaning (where the heck did the cleaning forum go??) Glock recommends Tetra Gun Grease, and I use it, and have used it for about 3-4 years now with no ill effects, and think the stuff is the best stuff going.

Yeah, the first time you field strip it you'll notice a copper colored residue on some parts. Leave it there, don't clean it off. It's a lubricant put there by the factory to help with break it, and it's fine.

Enjoy your Glock!!
