What type of Rust/corrosion resistance application does HK use? I read the owners manual and the only thing it stated was not 2 use oil that brags on it availibilty to penetrate metal. (I usually use tetra metal conditioner. This is exellent product. It makes cleaning bores smooth/easy) Since of the warning that it could interfer with their protection I did not use tetra. Does HKs fit tight where a thin lube is required like break free clp? I use break free greased lighting. The greased lighting is used for rapid semi auto and prevents S.S from gauling. I want 2 make sure my HK is not starved for lube. Lucas oil now makes a oil for guns( I am also a car guy, Lucas makes one of the best oil stabilizers, fuel cleaners, differential fluids) Has anyone used it or know of it performance in guns??

What they're talking about are products like WD40 that have penetrating qualities. If used in a gun meant for defensive purposes and therefore kept loaded, there is a possibility the oil will penetrate the primer and prevent the gun from firing.

Then again, if all you shoot at is paper, it won't matter a whit.

I was under the impression they were referring to the electo-plate type corrossion resistance process.

they use a couple different processes.

For the slide and barrel, they use a Nitro-Carburized finish, that "soaks" into the metal and changes the molecular structure deep into the metal, to protect from rusting.


The parts like the sear/disconnector and other little parts have a Dow Corning anti-rust treatment done to them, to inhibet rust.


The Mark23 has a protection level one step further, with an even more protective under-coating to meet the tough military specifications.
