Shwinteck slide lubrication

During my PDI there was no mention of maintenance of my shwinteck slides. I saw a video the other day about how to do this and I was wondering if you guy's have been doing this. I don't want to mess these things up. The whole system seems a bit fragile.

Wow. Seems like someone might have mentioned that. Seems kind of important. Guess I better get at it.

Agreed, I didn't learn it from my PDI either.

Interesting. The Owners Manual doesn't say squat about lubrication.

What are you folks using to lubricate?
