Sigs vs. other metal guns
Do Sigs require more lubrication than other steel/alloy guns? Seems like i hear 10000x more warnings to make sure its lubricated perfectly than other guns because the rails will mess up. Any reason for this?

SIGs require more lubrication because their tolerances are tighter than Glock, Ruger, etc. You can pick up a new Glock and move the slide side-to-side in relation to the frame. None of my SIGs were like that NIB.

Your typical alloy frame P series SIG pistol needs the frame rails to be well lubed for the longest frame life. After all you have a steel slide riding on an andonized alloy frame.
Most important are well lubed frame rails for heavy shooting sessions at the range, etc and a lot of us use a quality grease like Slide Glide that Bruce Gray also recommends as being a quality product that he has seen great results with. The top underside of the frame rails take the most abuse and grease is the best product to stay in place there.

manufacturer. Whether it's steel on steel, or steel on alloyed aluminum if you
don't lube properly and with frequency the firearm will not function reliably and the moving parts will wear. I feel as a Sig owner I want my pistols to
function well and last for many years. I am aware of the price of my Sig's
when compared to other handguns. It has been my experience from working
in a retail gun shop for 25 years that Glock owners tend to be either lazy
about cleaning and lubing or they feel their "tactical tupperware" is somehow
exempt from regular mantenance. This is what got many US troops killed in
Viet Nam when their new M-16's failed in the heat of battle because of the
lack of cleaning and lubrication. In over 30 years of competitive shooting
I've seen lots of changes in lubricants and solvents. Firearms that I
thought were not reliable simply needed a quality grease on the slide rails
rather than oil. No matter what firearm you have, "keep it clean, keep it
lubed, and it won't let you down". Shawn
