New P99 Finally Arrived, Rust In Slide?
After 3.5 months on order my new P99 finally arrived, however, after cleaning the gun I noticed what appeared to be rust in the slide?.
After oiling the slide and scrubbing the small rust areas, the rust appears to be gone.
I have the P99C and didn't experience this in that gun.
Anyone else ever experience this?
Never heard of that before. Are you absolutely sure it wasn't some type of packing grease or something?
Thought Of That,
Shipwreck, that may well be the case, and I hope it is. Since it appears to be gone.
This gun did have more packing grease than any gun I've ever bought and the grease color was kind of a rust color, so, maybe the grease got packed into some small pitted areas of the slide.
If this full size P99 is everything my compact is, I will be very happy.
Sounds like you might have something similar to the copper-colored (similar to rust color) anti-sieze lube that Glock puts in their pistols at the factory.
I have a feeling you won't be seeing it again...
