      Purchased my first handgun today

      Well I purchased my first handgun today. A Sig 229 9mm. The store had to order it and it should be in sometime this week. Can't wait to take it to the range. I will post pics when it come in. Does any one have pictures of where to lube on a new handgun. Thanks for your help.

      Congrats

      ENjoy the new gun

      While I've never owned a Sig, generally most guns lube the same. The rails on the frame. The outside of the barrel where it rubs the muzzle hole in the slide, and where the top of the barrel ribs the top of the slide.

      The manual should give U topc on where to lube. Other manuals I own for other guns sometime show U a illustration showing where to lube.

      You are lucky. Your first handgun purchase is one very fine auto. Mine is great. Unfortunately for me, I wasted a lot of money on S&W auto's before I discovered SigSauer. The instruction manual will tell you how to care for the gun. Basically, place one tiny drop (don't over do it) of gun oil inside the rail on each side of the slide near the rear. Tilt it forward and let the oil run down the rail. It's lubed. Enjoy your 229.
