It's always a good practise with any new firearm, that prior to the initial firing you field strip it, clean it and lube it. All manufacturers are different as to how they ship new guns. Some like my Colt 6920 were what I consider over lubed. This is done to protect the gun should it end up sitting somewhere for an extended period prior to sale. Others may come bone dry, so it's a good habit to clean and lube any new firearm before hitting the range.
