Few questions

How many rounds is it recommended to clean and lube the p320

also

I have the carry and subcompact handles...I swap between...

I should lube and clean before swapping out at the range?

thx

I see a bit of talk about the amount of Lube to use and being careful to wipe off excess can't I just use compressed air to blow it off?

Also if Slip 2000 products dry to the touch, how does it matter how much is put on? I live in the central valley of Commieforniastan.

Other than the rails on the FCU, should anything else be lubricated? I've been using Shooters Choice FP-10 with no issues so far shooting IDPA in humid Florida on P320C but when I clean I take out FCU and just spray with Break Free and scrub then dry and only oil the rails, want to make sure I'm not missing anything else..

Ckaplan88... FP10 is an awesome product. It is all that I've used to clean, lube, and protect 1911s, Glocks, M&Ps, rifles, and shotguns for 15 year or so. I'm using it on the P320s as well and after cleaning, will wipe it off areas that should not have much lube at all, to prevent collecting grit there.

FP10 in the slide rail grooves, and on the 4 rail guides on the FCUs, around the barrel's muzzle, and on other barrel contact points, before shooting them for the first time, helped ensure a flawless first 150 rounds in each of my P320s.

Light white gun grease for the slide rails and barrel contact points is a good for hot climates where light weight oil may run out easily. In very cold conditions, grease may slow the pistol functioning slightly and I would go with oil (FP10 is awesome) in those conditions.

A very light treatment with Remington Spray Dry Lube would work well for the FCU.

Just got the p320 carry today and was thinking of going to the range tomorrow. Still kinda unsure on wether I need to pre clean it or just clean it after a couple hundred rounds.

It is best to first clean the factory preservatives and lube from all areas of the pistol, then lube it as an owner should before going to the range for the first time.

Congrats on the purchase!

I am a new-ish pistol owner (past 6 months, 4 guns so far) and everyone recommends that you disassemble the pistol to remove all of the oil that was applied during assembly. Its really a preservative more than a lubricant.

I personally used an old but clean white teeshirt to remove all of the shipping and preservation oil, applied a generous layer of Slip2000 EWL to all areas of the barrel/slide that may ever contact each other (Barrel hood, diameter, inside of slide top, sides of slide near ejector window and barrel clearance hole) and allowed it to sit for a few hours. Gently wiped the bulk of it off but made sure to leave a light layer. Then I applied a small dab of oil to the edges of each slide rail and reassemble. Cycle the slide a bunch and wipe off any excess that makes its way out of the slide/frame area.

I have always been told that a very thin layer of oil is best. You should not be able to see any oil dripping ever and if you wipe the surface, you really don't want to see oil on your finger but you should see oil displaced on the part in question.

Kinda long winded and unorganized, but thats my cleaning/lubing philosophy.

I got mine from my LGS. Was like $13 but a decent size bottle. And it smells a ton better than Hoppes and other cleaner/lubricants.

[QUOTE=PatFranklin;662402]Great info. Thank you.

Question: I noticed that the recoil spring replacement comes at around 5000 rounds.

For the Compact and the Sub Compact. The full size is 10,000 rounds. Just wanted to add that.

I wanted to thank the poster here and say I really needed that. It is printed off and hanging on a clip board in my gun shop. now.

One more tip since I know we all respect Bruce Gray. This is his lubrication and such page for Sig handguns.
