Default Rock Island Armory 1911

I got this new from my lgs and it came very very heavily oiled. I wiped it down but did not field strip it to get the excess oils from inside of the slide, etc. should I just go ahead and shoot it or would it be wiser to field strip and give it a thorough wipe down inside and out first?

I'm sure it would be fine to shoot but the wetter it is the more it will gunk up, I personally like to break them down and get a little "bonding" time with my new guns. Good to know your firearm before you shoot it.

Bonding time is the plan... Hopefully be able to take it out this weekend and see what it's like at the range.

personally i like to field strip mine and clean them and make sure nothing is in the bore and to do a quick lookover to make sure everything is GTG. a light oiling and then shoot the snot out of them.

Clean it. You have no idea how many hands that's passed through or how long it set somewhere. Or what the people in the factory did before packaging. Clean the whole thing and throw a little extra oil on the rails. I'd do it right before shooting.
