General question for anyone - Do you re-lube before going to the range? I clean/lube every time I shoot (twice a month usually, couple hundred rounds at most each time), but I have not been doing any additional lubrication before going. Should I?

I have an older 226, and doing the above has never caused me any issues, just don't want to be shortening the life span of my gun(s).
Nope I use regular Permatex white lithium (in a tube) from Autozone.

Use Snake Oil for lube on my P226. Also use a little film of Snake Oil's grease where wear shows, like a VERY thin coat on the outside of the barrel. It should only be enough to leave a fingerprint, more than that is too much. Been using Snake Oil products for over 5 years with great results. YMMV


If I have to explain it, you probably won't understand it.

I have three sigs (p226, p239 and mosquito) shoot almost every week and clean each time I use Hoppe to clean and light oil then use TW-25B to lightly lube slide rails and wear points. Works great

I use RemOil SPARINGLY on all moving parts, and Shooter's Choice Hi Tech grease on the slide rails.

I clean with Hoppe's #9, lubricate with TW-25B, and Slide Glide on the rails.
