I will do more research on this, but my sources are a group of firearms dealers and recreational shooters. Not that everyone will agree all the time. Lol.

I just got this back from Ruger CS.

"Comment / question:
I just bought a new SR9C and read on the internet that the first thing I should do before firing it is to strip it & completely clean all factory lube and then relube. I can't find anything like that in the manual. What do you recommend?
It is not necessary to clean your SR9C on initial purchase other than to make sure the barrel is free of any oil. The SR9C should be field stripped after each shooting session, for cleaning and lubrication no matter how many rounds are fired. You should clean, blow dry and lightly oil your firearm to keep it in perfect working order."

This was kind of a generic answer, but I stripped it and cleaned & lubricated anyway. I didn't remove all the grease because it wasn't that bad and after I fire about a hundred rounds thru it, I'll take it down and clean everything and relube. Should I use grease on the slide or just lightly oil?
Heading to the range

I disassembled and inspected mine, then put it back together and started shooting. Cleaned it afterwards.

To clean the gas tube, or not to clean the gas tube. That is the question. Jesse17 AR-15 Discussion 2 10-06-2009 04:41 AM
