Step 1 when you purchase a brand new firearm that you have never owned before is to read the manual front to back as well.

It clearly states in the Gen 4 Glock manual NOT to clean the copper shit out of it...

I read the owners manual and I see that you are not supposed to take it apart all of the time, about once a year I think? The next time I have the gun apart is when I do some trigger modifications and some other small stuff.
Told ya
