I did not even take mine out of the box yet for it's first field stripping,? & to start it's breaking in period.? I clean & lube all of my guns with EEZOX on the 1911's I use a little of Brian Enos's Slide Guide just on the rails of the slide & A little on the frame & barrel lugs. & that's it. I am getting a nice set of VZ ECO grips to add to the gun.& I bought a Milt Sparks Summer Special 2 from Brownell's.? As they have them in stock,? So there's no months of waiting for delivery, Like from MS itself. The other thing I ordered is a set of extra belt straps In Black from M Sparks Co.To add onto the SS2 holster.
