Major update made to original post

I just added Lube directions to the original post so that everything is in one spot.

I could only upload one photo from my phone. I will try and put the other two up before the end of the week.

Hope it helps! DC

So, use grease and not oil? And only grease the points mentioned?

I just bought a P320C and the insides are covered in oil (from the factory). Also, the maintenance video on SIG's site says "if it's steel, oil it".

Howdie, TDavis. My apologies for the delay in my reply. I just saw your post, life has been busier than usual. This is more easily spoken than typed, but I will give it a try.

I clean my pistols by gently scrubbing them with Rem Oil sprayed on patches that are wrapped around a "gun toothbrush". I realized that I am doing what the video says by cleaning with a Rem Oil oiled patch until no more black residue comes off the area being cleaned. This cleans the pistol and leaves a light oil protection on all METAL surfaces (see paragraph below for polymer).

Next, I lube all (metal) locations that show contact with a light coat of grease - slide, barrel, guide rod, guide rod spring, locking block, hammer and all pivot points. Note - I am in the Gulf Coast and do not bury my pistol in sand. If your pistol will be in sand, you may need to do something different and others with experience (like overseas) need to share what worked for them there.

The only thing I clean polymer with is glass cleaner lightly sprayed on a cloth or paper towel. I can't deal with greasy grips so I clean ONLY the polymer/plastic in this manner. I also keep it off of any metal.

I finish by wiping the exterior of the pistol with a silicone cloth.

I hope that helps. PM me if you want to know more, we'll line up a phone call. FaceTime would be even better.

Great info. Thank you.

Question: I noticed that the recoil spring replacement comes at around 5000 rounds. And that seems to me to be about what the recommended replacement figure for rounds fired is for most recoil springs.

I overheard a range officer (gunsmith) commenting that due to its design the captive recoil spring lasts longer than a regular recoil spring. True or false?

As a new P320 owner this is excellent information. I love how easy this pistol is to take down clean and re-assemble. DCSig thank you for all the details.

The tube of lube (Not trying to be a poet.) is much like Lubriplate #105 grease you can buy at the auto parts store. It is used to put engines together. I've been using it for over 30 years on all of my guns. Never have a malfunction that isn't ammo related.

My guns also show very little wear from lots of shooting I might add.

Great information for an incredible new weapon

Very informative. Have attended three LEO Armorer classes over the years but this is departure from the traditional P series classic pistols and the information above is great. Thank you for spending the time to educate those of us who are old school and do not have a thimble full of experience with the P320. GREAT INFO: Thanks again.

Being that Sig recommends a dry lubricant on most of the P320 FCU, I'd like to know if anyone has used a product called Archoil AR4400 gun oil? This is a synthetic nano lubricant that supposedly leaves an extremely hard dry film. It claims to increase action speed and velocity, protects from moisture, corrosion, etc. It is formulated with hexagonal Boron Nitride for it's ability to bond with metal alloys and leaves a dry film that is extremely durable. It claims to resist carbon, copper and lead buildup, and it's odorless which would be a big plus for hunters. It's pretty pricey and before I spend $20 for a 4 oz, bottle I'd like to know if anyone here has used it and can verify these claims. This is a lubricant only. It does not clean and is to be used on clean guns only. They have another product called Archoil AR4200 that is used for cleaning. I would love to hear from anyone who has used this stuff.

Thanks DC, great information. I shoot my P320 at a outside range on my farm
and there can be all kinds of stuff in the atmosphere.

I completed the Sig Sauer P320 Armorer's Class 11/18/15. Here are the Sig Sauer specs from the factory manual on that date.

Thank for taking the time to write this out and share with the rest of us. Very generous.
