    I have a mid 90's Model C (no last round hold open, fixed sights, shiny slide).

    I was going to send it in to be fixed for a few issues but I'm afraid I will get a newer model back so I decided to fix it myself.

    I received new parts today such as re-coil spring, firing pin and springs sear spring and sear cam.

    My question is this, what parts should I oil, what parts should I grease and what kind of grease?

    Any other input is also welcome.

    This is the pistol in question.

    This is by far the best HP video out there, just ignore the fact he's using a .45
    its close enough.

    It doesn't hurt to take some fine sandpaper and make a couple of passes on the inside of the slide where you see any wear marks.
    By this I mean the left and right insides.
    Couple of drops of oil in the firing pin channel.

    If you take the RH grip off just a drop of light oil on the trigger bits that move and rub on the frame.

    If only someone would write some sort of guide to cleaning, lubricating and gun maintenance. Maybe they could focus on doing it as reasonably inexpensive as possible. Maybe even make a Hi Point specific version which would be available to Premium HPFF members.

    That'd be pretty cool, right?

    Lucas Red & Sticky grease works wonders and doesn't creep.

    I put such a publication in my cart to purchase and I noticed I could enter a promo code, but alas I have no code for even a token discount.

    Thanks. I didn't think about the gun being a bit of history until I read about owners returning them to mom and getting back newer product. I figured alot of these older c9 are being melted down so I got sentimental.

    The promo code is a generic entry box on lulu. There is no promo code issued for that product. However if you join HPFF as a premium member you can access a HP version in the dark rooms.

    Peace favor your sword (mobile)

    I now own my very own copy of "The Cheapskate's Guide to Gun Cleaning and Maintenance." Now I just need to figure out how to open and read it.
