Just picked up a new Glock and the internal parts were completely dry. I think it's the first time I've bought one that didn't have that gold paste on the bearing surfaces of the FCS.

Is this normal?

Thanks.

Every new Glock I've seen come through our gun shop has had the gold paste or whatever it is.

Anti-seize compound. like you'd put on the threads of a spark plug.

and it's copper, not gold...

The copper colored paste is fel-pro anti-seize compound

Purchased a G17 RTF recently and the copper stuff was there.

I bought a Glock 19 at the beginning of June, with a fired case dated early May, and it had the copper grease.

I bought a new Glock just a few months ago and it had the Never seize paste in it...

Will do. Just under 1k rounds through it and I'm starting to think the G17 may be the perfect sized Glock for me. Until now the G19 was uncontested.
