All of FNH guns have the protective oil like Sigs do and they recomend a cleaning before the first time use. I think it's a good idea so you start out with your gun in optimum condition.

My gun was bought online and was still wrapped in plastic and was pretty heavily covered in oil, so hopefully shooting a few hundred rounds through it without cleaning it the first time was okay. I've since put around 2500 rounds through it and haven't had a single malfunction whatsoever, but I'll definitely clean and lube the next gun I buy before I shoot it. Thanks everyone who contributed.

I would not worry about it at all. Sounds like your firearms is running just fine!

I like 'em cleaned, inspected and lubed to my specs before I run 'em out.

I have a procedure that I follow just as an extra precaution in case there are any fine millings or shavings that can only be shook loose after firing.
Anytime I pick up a new gun, doesn't matter what brand or type, I clean and lube first. Then I fire 3 rounds and clean it again. Then 5 rounds, and clean. Then 10 rounds and clean. Is it necessary? Probably not. Is it over the top and perhaps a little crazy? Probably. Will you talk me out of it? Nope.
After that, then I rock and roll.
