    Unfortunatley, I couldn't find the cleaning part. Field stripping is no problem, just wasn't sure how to get the gun clean, especially since I've been shooting "dirtier" ammo, or at least that's what I've been told (PMC). I'll double check all the papers though in the case, thanks for the link too!

    it's very simple.


    Cleaning the Field Stripped Firearm
    The Glock pistol should be cleaned after each shooting session. Once field stripped, the barrel and chamber are easily cleaned from the chamber end. The inside of the slide and receiver should be wiped clean along with the outside of the barrel. We suggest one of the many quality non-toxic solvents that are available in todays gun cleaning market. This will ensure proper functioning of your Glock pistol.
    As with any semi-automatic pistol, Glock pistols should not be cleaned by merely locking the slide to the rear and inserting the cleaning rod from the muzzle end. This can cause excessive amounts of solvents to build-up in both the receiver, slide and possibly contribute to malfunctions of the pistol. The pistol should be field stripped every time it is cleaned.
    The inside of both the chamber and the barrel should be wiped completely dry once they have been thoroughly cleaned. The breech face and the area under the extractor claw should both be absolutely dry and free of any debris after cleaning.
    The slide rail cuts should be cleaned thoroughly by using a clean patch on the end of a toothbrush-type cleaning tool.
    With the clean patch wrapped over the brush portion of the toothbrush, thoroughly clean the slide rail cuts of all debris and solvents.
    All other areas of the slide and receiver should be checked for cleanliness. Most parts in the receiver may be wiped with a clean, soft cloth.
    After the parts in the receiver have been cleaned, they should be wiped dry with a clean, soft cloth. All solvents should be wiped from the parts so the parts are clean and dry, Note: The Glockmeister has found that 6" cotton tipped applicators (wooden stems) by Patterson Dental Company can get into the corners and hard to get at areas. I have also found that the wooden tip is great to clean out the slide rail cuts. Just a suggestion!


    To properly lubricate your Glock pistol, after it has been thoroughly cleaned and dried, use a clean patch that has been slightly dampened with a quality gun oil. Wipe the barrel, the inside of the slide where the barrel hood rides against the slide and wipe the barrel lug at the bottom of the barrel. Apply one drop to each of the slide rail grooves (once the slide is moved on the receiver, the oil will be distributed to each of the slide rails). The most important drop of oil is placed where the trigger bar and connector meet. Failure to properly lubricate the junction of the trigger bar and connector can lead to premature wear and a very heavy trigger pull.
    Do not over-lubricate your Glock. Glock pistols are designed to operate properly with only small amounts of lubrication. Over-lubrication can cause the gun to collect large amounts of burnt and unburnt powder, brass shavings, dirt, lint and other foreign matter that can affect the proper functioning of your gun.
    WARNING
    Do not put oil inside the firing pin channel, around the extractor, on the breech face, any where near the barrel chamber or feed ramp, nor in the magazine. These areas should be kept clean and free from lubricant. Lubricant in these areas can cause contamination to primers and result in a failure to fire.
    Dry Firing Glock pistols can be dry fired without damage to the pistol. Do not pull back the lug of the firing pin and let it snap forward when the slide is removed from the receiver. Damage to the firing pin and firing pin safety can occur.
