I recently opened a new P320 full-sized 9mm, and removed the Fire Control Assembly from the grip assy to take some weight measurements... the FCA trigger linkage had signficant (visible) amounts of white grease applied, while the flanged-lips of the FCA that align the slide to the FCA were dry.
Next I checked the 'grooves' in the slide and they were visually dry.
I don't know if this implies that SIG recommends running the slide-to-rail interface dry, but they obviously take pains to lubricate the trigger linkage, while lubricating the slide rails is was not a priority.
Metal to metal contact calls for some lubrication, metal to composite contact not so clearly, but it does not need to be much in either case. A light viscosity oil, used sparingly, on the rails and on the flange atop the fire control module will do just fine.
Any one try Sig's new Spec 1 line of lubricants?
Slip 2000 just had a price increase. Now we know why.
“SLIP2000 is honored to be working with SIG SAUER, one of the world’s best firearms companies, to introduce SPEC1. We are also extremely proud that our lubricants earned the favor of the elite SIG SAUER Academy instructors through rigorous use and testing,” began Greg Conner, President, SLIP 2000 / SPS Marketing. “This partnership means that SPEC1 lubricant is now the official lubricant of the SIG SAUER Academy, and that all SIG SAUER firearms will be manufactured with the SPEC1 lubricant, and a product sample will ship with every SIG SAUER firearm. To earn the endorsement of SIG SAUER, and know they want to put their name on our lubricants and cleaners, is very exciting for our brand.”
