Why is lubing important?
In 2018, my country was facing a dilemma and it was very unsafe to go outside without any weapon or some sort of protection,therefore, my father bought a Glock for the same purpose. I was very excited to see him practicing and shooting it by aiming at a target in a farmhouse but when we reached home I saw him oiling this Glock, I was confused and when I inquired about it he told me that it was lubing. He told me that due to friction in a gun while shooting, there can be wear and tear in the Glock and because of that the quality and performance of the gun can be compromised, he also stated that lubing prevents rusting which can cause miss aimed shots, misfired shots, jamming of the gun or even the gun to totally stop working. However, the lube we were using was not great as it was toxic and had a strong scent, so my uncle who has vast experience in arms and its maintenance recommended HOPPE’S 1003 or AWT Extreme Force, this is what we use now and are extremely satisfied with it. But turns out that there is a whole market of lubes for Glocks, so after extensive research I have come up with top 2 lubes for Glocks for reasons that I will be sharing with you below.
- HOPPE’S 1003 No. 9
As I mentioned earlier that this lube was recommended by my uncle and now I can see why and I can’t thanks him enough. HOPPE has never once failed to produce a high quality lube, all of their lubes have a similarity of being high quality and effective functioning and this lube is favored by many professionals and marksmen for many reasons. This lube is thin which give it the ability to flow into tight spaces without difficulties and provide nurturing on every part of the gun whether it is difficult to access or not. As a lube it does its job effectively as it provides the gun with an out layer which acts as a protector and repels water and dirt and also prevents corrosion and rust. The lube also has versatility as it can be applied to different mechanics like fishing reels, gears, cycle chains etc., this is also an anti-toxin which means it will do no harm to your hands or the environment as it Is made up of natural harmless ingredients, similarly, it has a sweet smell that will not bother you or make you uncomfortable which is a rarity in lubes.
