I've read some posts here from guys who stripped down their MA1s and cleaned and lubed them before firing. But is that really necessary? I got my new M357-A1 NIB just before Christmas, but had to hit the road before I could do anymore than open the box and admire it. I have looked down in the innards with a light and it appears to be perfectly clean and dry, no grease visible. I thought I read some posts about cleaning grease from the slide, et c. before shooting, but mine doesn't appear to have any grease. I just got back in town and plan to take my new baby to the range tomorrow, but am I committing a big no-no if I don't strip her down and clean her first? And one more question. I've heard references to a lube called "Slide Glide" here in a post or two. Is that a generic lube term or the name of a product? I haven't been able to find such a product in stores or websites. As for whether I should strip before shooting, I'll check back before I go shooting tomorrow to find out if I'm about to screw up my new beauty.
