- Before you install a modification, such as a Glock competition trigger
- After storing the weapon for a long period of time
- After each firing session with the weapon
- If the weapon has been exposed to elements such as saltwater, rain, snow, dirt, or rust.
- Periodically, just to check the components in the weapon to make sure everything is working correctly.
