    New XDS

    123
    Quick question-- I usually shoot Sigs and have always found that they like to shoot wet. I usually use ample oil on the slide and moving parts after cleaning. Is this ok for Springfields?

    I don't know if it is OK because while the XDs in .45 ACP is my daily carry gun, I don't use "ample" oil. It isn't necessary and makes a mess.

    Too much oil attracts too much dirt making an abrasive paste. Don't over do it with lubrication.

    A wet dirty gun is better than a dry clean one. That's what I have been told by a few people who are more knowledgeable than me.

    Stainless Guns require a bit more oil than blued guns do.

    I spray with Breakfree CLP and wipe it all off. Then I put a tiny drop of Mobil One on the rails and work the slide a few times and wipe off any excess I see. Works fine for me.

    ^^^Spot on. And oil in the chamber increases pressure. And excess oil also makes the gun dangerous to shoot. You'll get high-speed lubricant hitting you in the face.
