Supposed to lightly oil, correct?
I don't know what others here will say. But if you get a gun used, I'd be generous with the oil and let it sit for a day or two. Who knows what spots they've missed... When I got my Colt Combat Commander I could tell it hadn't been properly oiled in many months. So I generously oiled it (after a proper cleaning of course), let it sit for 48 hours, and then gave it a good wipe down. My Colt likes lots of oil, but not so much that it's dripping down the sides.
Hope that helps...
