    noob question--

    I just went shooting and now parts of my slide and the part of the magazine that pushes the bullets up is covered in brass colored glitter. What is this stuff and how do I clean it?

    did you use cheap rounds? The cheapo remington .22's do that sometimes.

    It sounds like he is talking about the automotive anti-seize compound that is applied at the factory. Is this a Glock by any chance?

    Does it look like this:

    It's brass from the casings. Just wipe it off.

    are you rolling your eyes at me, or the ammo.

    The gold stuff usually washes off my fingers, and i havnt found it on the gun anywhere. If so the cleaning just takes it right off. Mind you this was just a .22 rifle, so the 9mm might leave a bit more dust.

    Copper lube. The stuff Glock's rails are coated in when they leave the factory; don't know another manufacturer to use the stuff. However, it works great, IMHO; I have a tube for re-lubing my G23. A little goes a long way!
