I was trained as a Glock armorer not to lube the internal parts in the slide such as the firing pin assembly, extractor, and firing pin safety plunger. But when breaking down my new MP.45 I see the firing pin assembly and other small parts are well lubed, yet they seem of similar design when compared to a Clock. Does the S&W MP.45 need to be lubed?

I just lube mine per the Owners Manual. After about 500 rounds or so I take the slide apart and clean, but do not lube, the firing pin channel. It seems to get a lot of junk in the channel after a lot of firing. I live in a dusty environment, so extra lube for me just means more dirt sticking to the pistol.

What you found in your gun from the factory was not lube useful for functioning, but more of a protectant so that it doesn't rust when sitting in the factory or gun shop for a year. Similar to when you buy a new tool at Home Depot.
