Default Sig Sauer maintenance

So as some of you have seen I picked up a Sig p239 in .357 and I was wondering . when do you typically start seeing the first signs of wear on the underside of the frame rails as far as round count goes ? I have just a 1/8 - 1/4 inch or so of rub on the back underside of the rails and the rest of the rails are fine.

And also has anyone ever used CRC white lithium to grease the frame rails? Ya think it's ok to do?

I have been carrying my Sig's non-stop for over 25 yrs and have shot hounds of rounds through them and have noticed little to no wear. Mostly the blueing has worn in some spots from holster wear but that is all.

As for the lithium grease I have never tried it on a firearm. But as a full time mechanic we use it a lot here at work. It works great, I have never had a problem with it.

Gh0zt36,
As long as you stay in warm weather you should be OK. Just don't try that if you go where the weather gets cold. Semi-autos don't like grease in cold weather. This is based on personal experience from when I lived in New England. I always shot outdoors, yes even in the middle of winter at 5 degrees (I was younger & crazier then). I have had light weight greases prevent cycling after being out in the cold for a bit. Switched to Snake Oil and never had another problem.

Now that I'm in the Southwest, I still use Snake Oil & love the stuff. JMHO

Freezing does not seem to be much of a problem here in Az. It is only 108 degrees today.

All of my guns show slight slide wear after shooting them.

My Sig's show no more wear than any others.

Here's my P239



I love my Sig's - wonderful brand of gun IMHO

Best of luck with yours
